Trekathon 457: Blood Fever (VOY)

August 5th, 2012

A Vulcan member of the crew undergoes pon farr, and B’Elanna catches it too (even though she’s not Vulcan).

Voyager was going to have to get around to this one eventually, given the length of their journey home. It was also a good choice to add a Vulcan crew member, rather than use Tuvok. But then they go ahead and throw B’Elanna into the mix, and it all becomes very silly.

The most notable point was the tease at the very end, when we find out that Voyager is getting close to the territory of the only delta quadrant resident that we’ve seen on screen before.

457 down, 280 to go.
