Added DiffLines:

* DueToTheDead: Biomimetic Janeway gives Chakotay this immediately after his passing, saying that he was a fine Starfleet officer and a good friend who wasn't afraid to tell her where she went wrong.


* BottleEpisode

to:

* BottleEpisodeBottleEpisode: Most of the episode happens entirely on the biomimetic ''Voyager'', while the real ''Voyager'' only appears near the end.

Added DiffLines:

** Also in B'Elanna's marital vow to Tom Paris:
--> '''B'Elanna:''' You stood by me when most people would have run for the nearest airlock. You were willing to see past my shortcomings...and to take all the bumps and bruises that came along with it. You made me a better person...even though I put up one hell of a fight.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: Writers commented that part of they liked about this episode was exploring how the characters would react when faced with certain death, including Tom Paris denying his own reality to avoid facing his pain while Janeway falls back on her own goals to avoid acknowledging the scale of the problem.


* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Janeway and Chakotay are giddy at the idea of flying right through the center of the Milky Way galaxy, even though all the exploding stars and black holes would make it a navigational nightmarish impossibility. (Not to mention the [[Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier superbeing living out there, waiting for a starship.]])

Added DiffLines:

* WhatWouldXDo: When biomimetic Harry Kim orders Seven of Nine to dump the warp core and Seven warns that dumping it while still traveling at warp would tear the ship apart, Harry tries to reason with Seven by saying, "What would Captain Janeway have done?"


** Janeway orders that the environmental systems be set to simulate a Class Y planet, in an effort to slow their decay. As mentioned in "Demon," such a planet has a temperature of 500 kelvin (or roughly 230 Celsius, which is hotter than most baking temperature). The interior of the ship and all its inhabitants, who are now used to a Class M environment, would not be able to survive.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Biomimetic Neelix suggests for their honeymoon, Tom and B'Elanna take a cruise on a sea of liquid ''argon''. Argon is only a liquid between -189 and -185 degrees Celsius! Granted, this takes place on the holodeck, but given how often the safety protocols decide to break...

* MessageInABottle: The crew of the biomimetic copy of ''Voyager'' try to send one in the form of a probe to the real ''Voyager'' in the case that they don't survive their journey home to the Demon-class planet, but unfortunately it was destroyed upon launch.

* PublicDomainSoundtrack: Harry is playing a jazzy rendition of that old classic "Heart and Soul". Too bad they couldn't have done the T'Pau version.



* SlapSlapKiss: {{Lampshaded}} re Tom and B'Elanna:
--> '''Seven:''' Given the volatile nature of their relationship, one might have predicted homicide rather than matrimony.

The story starts with Lt. Tom Paris and Lt. B'elanna Torres marrying each other, which turns out to be a happy moment for the crew...although they do not notice beneath their feet how the floors and the Jeffries tube below them are starting to ominously distort. And wait, didn't Tom get demoted? B'elanna and Seven of Nine soon find out, though, with Seven discovering that the distorting section of the ship is losing molecular cohesion and B'elanna saying that it's radiation from the warp core that's causing the demolecularization. Then B'elanna herself starts to develop signs of the same problem, as do a few other crew members who worked in Engineering. She eventually dies despite Tom Paris and the Doctor's best efforts to save her.
