Chakotay's grandfather

Chakotay's grandfather

An illusion of Chakotay's grandfather appeared to Commander Chakotay in his "vision quest" in 2375 while being trapped in chaotic space. In this "vision quest", Chakotay met his elderly grandfather in a cave-like forest scenario where he was walking among the trees. Chakotay told him to take his medicine, but the old man refused. While talking to this illusion, Chakotay realized that he should listen to the voices of the aliens. (VOY: "The Fight")

Chakotay's grandfather was played by actor Ned Romero, who was listed as "Grandfather" on the call sheet.

These six children appeared in Tuvok's memories during a mind meld with Kathryn Janeway in 2373. In these memories, the children tried to hold a girl and rescue her from a fall down a precipice. Besides the six children, Kathryn Janeway, Tuvok, and Dimitri Valtane, in early years, tried the same. (VOY: "Flashback")

The six children were played by supporting performers who received no credit for their work. Valtane and Janeway were named on-screen. It is unknown if these children existed in real life or if they were a creation caused by the memory virus.
The falling girl's voice was heard during the episode. It is unknown if this is the voice of the actress or an ADR voice.
In the first draft script of "Flashback", the six individuals who were ultimately represented as children were very different. They were comprised of "a man wearing an old-style Starfleet uniform (original series)", "an alien woman", "a man dressed in a 20th century basketball uniform", "a Nazi from World War II", "a 19th century Spaniard in traditional garb", "a Chinese peasant", and "an ancient Egyptian king". Instead, the children were described in the final draft of the script as "a 20th century boy wearing an American Little League outfit", "a Masai African boy from Colonial times", "a Chinese peasant girl [from] Medieval times", "a Middle Eastern girl [from the] 1st century", and lastly, a "Stone Age boy, [a] proto-Human, [from] earliest times".
