- Alternative Character Interpretation: Did Azan and Rebi want to clone Naomi for the science fair or because they each wanted a Naomi of their own? Jim "Reviewboy" Wright seems to think it's the latter."Across the room, minding her own project, Naomi blushes. Ally McWildman apparently has a pair of admirers."
- Harsher in Hindsight: The lengths to which Seven goes to protect Icheb in this episode become a lot more bittersweet after seeing the Star Trek: Picard episode "Stardust City Rag", in which she arrives too late to save him from being vivisected for his Borg implants. One wonders what she might have done to Icheb's parents if he'd been re-assimilated before Voyager could catch up...
- Visual Effects of Awesome: We get a very nice frontal view of Voyager warping away from the damaged Borg sphere.
YMMV / Star Trek: Voyager S6 E19: "Child's Play"
