Did You Know?


Doctor states that Klingon gestation cycle is 30 weeks See more »


The doctor says that Klingon gestation is 30 weeks but that a hybrid (Klingon/Human) is likely shorter. Given that Human gestation is 40 weeks, surely the anticipated hybrid gestation would be longer. See more »


[Tom is having marital problems with B'Elanna]
Tom Paris: What am I supposed to do?
Harry Kim: Maybe you should tell her you understand.
Tom Paris: What good would that do?
Harry Kim: It might make her less defensive; and then maybe it would be easier for her to see your point of view.
Tom Paris: Yeah... What if she can't?
Harry Kim: Like I said, my couch is your couch.

Lineage, a heart felt well written episode, deals with the relationship between B'Elanna's Klingon and Human background. The episode written by James Kahn, writer of the "Return of the Jedi" novel, is not only applicable to contemporary life issues, but works with the 24th century world in Voyager. Identity issues are common in today's world and fictionally in the inter-species world of Star Trek. I think that some Trek fans forget that Gene Roddenberry's original vision was not just of a fictional, Scifi world, but a world that relates 24th century life to 20/21st century life. A vision that is both far reaching and grand, yet grounded in contemporary society, 'Lineage' lives up to that vision.
