The Talaxian named Neelix is one of the main characters in Star Trek Voyager:

enter image description here

His duties on board the ship range from chef, to ambassador and ship's moral officer. Also, through-out the seasons we get to know a lot about his interests (mainly throwing parties, cooking and hooking up with alien babes...), his family, his planet etc, but we never learn his age, something a tad strange as actually in one episode he was preoccupied with Tuvok's age!

Out of universe, his Memory Alpha biography doesn't seem to mention his age and I don't remember any of the producers discussing this (but I could be wrong).

So my question is: Do we know how old Neelix is?

Both canon and EU sources/quotes will be accepted.

    at least fifteen (given he was present for the events at rinax in 2356) though i suspect significantly older. also shouldn't that really say alien babies? – Ummdustry Jun 10 '18 at 16:42

    @Ummdustry Perhaps, if you consider Kes ;) Otherwise, it's correct as it is. – Rebel-Scum Jun 10 '18 at 16:52

    Memory-Beta (referencing various EU novels) gives his birthdate as 2337 – Valorum Jun 10 '18 at 20:05
  • @Valorum If there was a specific quote from one of the books I could accept it as an answer. – Rebel-Scum Jun 11 '18 at 10:30

    Pathways by Jeri Taylor covers Neelix's childhood and early experiences up to meeting Voyager. It's probably in there somewhere... I just bought an ebook copy but I haven't found it yet. – Ross Presser Jul 30 '18 at 4:11
