Service history[]


While docked at Deep Space 9, Nozawa was treated in sickbay where he was lying on a biobed while Tom Paris and Harry Kim reported to sickbay.

Following the transport of Voyager into the Delta Quadrant, he was one of the crewmen who carried the dead body of Lieutenant Stadi off the bridge on a stretcher.

Later, he was among the crewmembers who were transported aboard the Caretaker's array and witnessed the holographic farm folk trying to deviate the Voyager crew. When Captain Janeway received a hail from Tom Paris without any further word, Nozawa was among the crewmembers who followed Janeway into a barn. In the barn the holographic farm folk threatened the crewmembers and revealed the medical tech chamber of the Caretaker where everyone was placed on a bed and probed. (VOY: "Caretaker")

Nozawa was on the bridge when the ship was hit by several discharges from a type-4 quantum singularity. He was thrown off his feet. (VOY: "Parallax")

In an alternate 2372, experienced by Harry Kim, Nozawa was not aboard Voyager but walked down the streets of San Francisco near Kim's apartment. (VOY: "Non Sequitur")

Nozawa surprised by Torres

Later that year, Nozawa was surprised to have Lieutenant Torres suddenly walking in on him in his quarters while he was undressed, this was a result of her walking in the wrong door because the ship's hull was being distorted in an inversion field. (VOY: "Twisted")

This scene was filmed during second unit on Tuesday 16 May 1995 on Paramount Stage 9, the final day of filming on the first season. Tampoya is listed as "N.D. in Quarters" on the call sheet.

Nozawa later assisted Torres when she beamed aboard a core sample from a rogue comet. He was in the transporter room when the resulting sample was found instead to be a man, who was in reality a Q who had been imprisoned within. (VOY: "Death Wish")

Hologram []

A hologram of Nozawa was featured in the holodeck program Insurrection Alpha as one of the officers who remained loyal to Captain Janeway that resisted Chakotay's mutiny. Nozawa was shot on Deck 2 when Chatokay and the individual playing the first person role searched the ship for any remaining resistance. (VOY: "Worst Case Scenario")



Background information[]

Nozawa was played by regular background actor and Garrett Wang's stand-in and photo double John Tampoya who received no credit for his appearances.

His full name was given by the Quarren computer in "Workforce, Part II" but was mislabeled as a woman.

According to the call sheet, Tampoya was also scheduled to appear as the transporter chief who beamed Dr. Jetrel aboard in the first season episode "Jetrel" but was out of focus and did not appear in the final episode.

A clear view of the information panel from Prodigy was provided by Dominique Rossier of Wardenlight Studio. [1]
