Wow, talk about a bad case of gestational hormones!
7 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting episode that further explores B'Elanna Torres and her self-loathing. When the show begins, B'Elanna finds out that she is pregnant. However, instead of being overjoyed, she is full of doubts and self-loathing. As a result of her terrible childhood and daddy abandonment issues, instead of being happy she's worried to death that the child will look Klingon and will feel left out when dealing with its peers. This IS odd considering how politically correct and nice everyone is during the 24th century--it's just hard to imagine any of the kids during this time not being 100% p.c.. But her concerns run much deeper--making her behave and think VERY irrationally.

At first, I didn't care for the episode. However, over time I started to appreciate B'Elanna's character and her struggles. All in all an interesting show--one well worth seeing.
