The Paxau Resort was an exclusive and luxurious retreat on Talax. Catering to the desires of the wealthy, privileged – or well-connected – few, the Paxau Resort was a haven from the cares of the galaxy. Guests were free to relax and enjoy a massage, eat delicious food, drink the finest beverages, or partake in pleasurable activities of a more personal nature. Although difficult to get into, the Paxau Resort was reputed to be one of the finest examples of cultured decadence in the entire Delta Quadrant.
Neelix created a holodeck program, run on holodeck one, of the resort for use of the USS Voyager crew in 2373 under the file "Tropical Resort Simulation 3". Tom Paris, Harry Kim, and B'Elanna Torres reconfigured the program by introducing elements from Earth's Polynesian resorts. Kim also livened up the program with the addition of more characters, adding characters from Kim Sports Program Theta-2, members of a championship female volleyball team. Neelix did not seem to mind the additions to his program, even getting into the spirit by serving spicy paraka wings and dancing to the lively music that had been added. (VOY: "Warlord", "Darkling")
