He enthused, "I loved that I got to battle the Voyager people for two episodes and that I put up a pretty good fight [....] It was a very good story, worth spreading over two shows." (The Official Star Trek: Voyager Magazine issue 11) Begley also said, "I thought it was great that Starling got to challenge them for two episodes. I have to say that he did pretty well for a man who was really just a 20th Century Neanderthal!" (Star Trek Monthly issue 26, p. 60) (Source: memory-alpha.fandom.com)
