Writer Nick Sagan's voice was sent into space in 1978 on NASA's Voyager spacecraft. His greeting, "Hello from the children of planet Earth"
We get another crew count in this episode. Having tested Tuvok and Chakotay to see if they are 8472, the EMH announces "Two down, one hundred and twenty five to go." Assuming he would not be part of the testing process, that's 128 in all.
