"The 47's" was the seventy-second episode of Star Trek: Phoenix-X. It was the twenty-second episode of the third season.


Amp integrates Omega's program into the holomatrix in order to level the playing field in the Battle Arena. Unfortunately, the Phoenix-X later begins to encounter strange occurrences of the number 47 throughout every aspect of the ship. This continues until the ship is in danger and the crew must find a way to stop them.

Memorable quotesEdit

"I always hated that the Federation had a vacation planet; while Romulus just had Remus."

Background informationEdit

  • This episode exploits the number 47, which is a naturally and intentional recurring number in the Star Trek episodes and movies. The joke lies in that the clashing of the holographic Amp and the android Omega's programs naturally causes an aggravation of 47 instances all over the ship.
  • The individual numbers in the Stardate (59699.9) add up to 47.
  • The episode title is reminiscent of the Star Trek: Voyager episode title "The 37's".
  • Seifer makes a small reference to the number 42, and that it is "the answer to life, the universe, and everything". This is a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
