UPN - Voyager - (STV412)

"Mortal Coil" - An exploratory mission results in an accident that kills Neelix, whose body is then "reactivated" by Seven of Nine and Borg technology, bringing the restored Neelix to question the purpose of his life.

Neelix is preparing a shipboard feast on the eve of Prixin, the Talaxian celebration of family, when he is asked by Chakotay to join him and Paris on a shuttle mission. Neelix is all too glad to help, but the assignment proves to be fatal for him. Upon the shuttle's return to the U.S.S. Voyager, Seven of Nine, citing Neelix's diverse functions within the crew, applies Borg technology to reactivate him. Alive and shaken by his death, Neelix questions his assumptions about life -- and the promised afterlife -- as the Prixin festivities commence.
