The Klingon holiday known as Day Of Honor comes around again and this year B'Elanna Torres decides to embrace her Klingon heritage and participate in a series of ritual endurance tests. But blood pie and painstiks are the last thing on her mind when an emergency necessitates ejecting Voyagers warp core. Torres and Tom Paris are sent in a shuttlecraft to retrieve it but the Caatati decide they want the core and destroy the shuttle. Paris and Torres don EV suits and beam off in time, only to find themselves adrift in space with little oxygen. Accepting her impending death, B'Elanna confesses to Tom that she loves him, they pass out, and are rescued by Voyager in the nick of time. Written by Meribor

Honor & Conscience
17 July 2012 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

You see 2 conflicts play in this story for both 7 and Torres.

I like how they write that 7 has no remorse over the destruction of civilizations. It makes her real. To a Borg, it's what they do and it's who they are. To them, it's not hatred as much as it is the greed of knowledge. 7 has no conscience (no ability to identify right and wrong), and she begins to have one by the end of the story. She senses hostility from the crew, and yet she has no idea how to react to it. It's like seeing some who doesn't just have no people skills, but she's never reacted to anyone. It's like watching Data on TNG, but it's grittier. She's a villain turning into a hero. It's as if she's thinking and interacting with a real group of people for the first time (because the character really is). Fabulous writing.

Torres is ashamed of her cultural heritage thinking it to be pointless and foolish. How many of us think the same way (such as family rituals, religious customs, and holiday traditions). If we don't value those things, how can they be important? What does the practice mean? Usually, those in a big family value the rituals, customs, and traditions because it brings them together. It gives them an identity as a group. But for those who don't have those kinds of things (such as Torres), how can she value that identity when she has no group to share it with (who values the same rituals, customs, and traditions)? If she values those things, she'd value them for herself, her unique identity, and her Klingon heritage. It would ultimately make her a culture of one. In the end of this story when she faces death, she wants what her people want "Honor", the thing that all Klingons long for and cherish: praise of accomplishments, actions worthy of song, and a place in history. It's not the most humble ambition to have, but Klingons aren't humble. They want people to think that they are great.
