When Janeway wants to get into the prison, she fools the guards into thinking she is there for (ahem) other reasons. Shouldn't they get suspicious because she doesn't have the same facial ridges as the other natives of the planet? Or are aliens so common on this world that they are accepted as trustworthy on sight?
Alan Scarfe, who plays Augris in this episode, also played Admiral Mendak in TNG's "Data's Day" and Tokath in TNG's "Birthright, Part II".
Voyagers crew must obtain tellerium to top up the ship's power systems - but the only local source lies on a planet under the grip of a brutal dictatorship. When the plan goes disasterously wrong, Janeway must rely on the help of a less than completely sane native to rescue her shipmates.
