- Kim's office is in the main complex, level six, subsection 47.

- Kim starts counting megapascals of pressure, the camera takes a detour to the Holodeck, and Kim resumes counting up from 47 megapascals in Engineering when the camera comes back.
- On the display that shows Voyager twisted out of shape, three 47s can be spotted...

a. In the top left of the screen, it says "LCARS 40274"

b. On the right side of the screen, just above Voyager's saucer section, are 4 lines of numbers:

c. Beneath the twisted Voyager diagram, there are ten columns of numbers, two rows in each column. In the 8th column, 2nd row, the number is 4786.

Basics, Part II
