Tuvok's changing rank
There's a note on this page regarding speculation at Tuvok's potential demotion after this episode as his rank changes to Lieutenant after this, yet in the episodes "State of Flux" and "Heroes and Demons" he's still wearing the rank of Lieutenant Commander, and does not use the Lieutenant pips until "Cathexis". Does this not stunt the hypothesis entirely and just provide more evidence towards the costuming error idea (especially given the other errors at the time)? I find it unlikely that a demotion would have taken place after such a delay. Is there a source that cites any frequent speculation about this being a demotion and not just a mistake?
