Hawk, Tattoo

A hawk on the Sky Spirits' planet

A hawk was a predatory avian animal native to Earth, among other planets. Hawks were noted for having especially keen eyesight. (TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah"; VOY: "Course: Oblivion")

When a survey team of the USS Voyager beamed down to the planet of the Sky Spirits in 2372, Chakotay saw a hawk in the sky. Shortly thereafter, Neelix was attacked by the bird and nearly lost one of his eyeballs. (VOY: "Tattoo")

When Leonardo da Vinci began conceptualizing his flying machine, he initially took the "flapping approach", which mimicked the way a bat or a sparrow flew; his attempt was unsuccessful. It was not until Kathryn Janeway suggested that he should base it on the hawk, that his idea finally took off: "a creature that glides through the air." (VOY: "Scorpion")

Types of hawks Edit

Background Edit

Alan Sims was responsible for hiring the trained hawk that swooped down and attacked Neelix in the episode "Tattoo". "Instead," recalls Sims, "the hawk spotted a crow and went off after it in the opposite direction. It took hours to find him. The delay was a nightmare." (Star Trek 30 Years, pg 46)
