Quotes

Kes: [after burning all the plants to the ground] I killed those plants - just like I almost killed Tuvok. But I don't want to hurt anybody.
Tanis: Of course you don't. That's not the point. Hurt people, help them, give life, kill - it's all the same. Once you see beyond the physical, you see the universe as it truly is.

Pretty good stuff.

During the course of the first few seasons of "Star Trek: Voyager", the character Kes changes tremendously. At first, she's sweet and a bit saccharine. Later, she shows some nice empathic qualities when she begins working for the doctor. Later, however, she shows she has super-powers--something that make her a very interesting character!

When the show begins, Voyager discovers that the Caretaker who brought their ship all the way to the Delta Quadrant in the first episode might just have a mate nearby. And, like the Caretaker, there is a race of Ocampa living on a station and being protected by her. However, this other caretaker isn't so positively disposed towards Voyager nor are her Ocampa. Well, that is until the Ocampa see that Kes is one of them and serving aboard a Federation ship. What follows is a weird little case where the Ocampa teach her how to unlock her mighty powers--and then regret this in hindsight.

All in all, a rather interesting and intense show--one that gives you some insight into the sort of being Kes might become in later shows. Very interesting and worth seeing.
