Recap: Star Trek Voyager S 6 E 25 The Haunting Of Deck Twelve
While Voyager is in the middle of a blackout, Neelix is put in charge of keeping the ship's children calm. He does this by telling them a story about "The Haunting of Deck 12."

This episode contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Attack Hello: Tal Celes does this to Harry Kim, thinking that he's a hostile alien.
  • Cowardly Lion: Neelix. In spite of being so terrified that even Tuvok's attempts at guided meditation don't calm him, when the Vulcan is injured, he does what needs doing to get him to engineering.
  • Creepy Child: The children Neelix is put in charge of sport odd stares and are not in the slightest disturbed by topics like cannibalism.They are former Borg.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Tuvok gets a good one after Tom and Harry talk about the scary things (like a vampire bat) that they see in the nebula:
    Harry: What do you see, Tuvok?
    Tuvok: Two Starfleet officers with juvenile imaginations.
  • Elevator Failure: Almost kills Chakotay.
  • Explosive Instrumentation: Not actually explosive, but the helm shoots an energy bolt that catches Tom Paris in the face.
  • Framing Story: Most of the episode is a story Neelix is telling the children.
  • Going Down with the Ship: Janeway almost does this before the alien relents.
  • Hypocritical Humor: the last couple lines of the episode:
    Janeway: So, how'd you do it? Told them fairy tales?
    Neelix: Oh, no. Some of those stories can be very scary. Ogres and goblins.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: the children (who are Borg) suggest that after a catastrophe, the survivors of the Talaxian ship Salvoxia survived by turning cannibal. Neelix is obviously uncomfortable with the idea.
  • No One Gets Left Behind: Neelix to Tuvok.
    Tuvok: I am injured. Logic dictates that you take the mask and proceed to main engineering.
    Neelix: I don't care what logic dictates! This isn't the Salvoxia. We're not drawing lots.
    Neelix: And I'm disobeying it. You're coming with me if I have to drag you by your pointy little ears!
