Neelix (628 words)
As a child, Neelix lived with his parents and younger brothers on Rinax, a moon of Talax, where, due to Talax's three suns, the summer seasons were the hottest in the sector, reaching temperatures of 50 degrees Celcius with 90 percent humidity.
Neelix survived because he was on Talax at the time, fleeing from military duty in a war he felt was unjust.
Neelix helped Captain Janeway deal with the Kazon-Ogla shortly after Voyager's arrival in the Delta Quadrant, and was subsequently invited to join the Voyager crew, in part because of his familiarity with the region of space.
