Voyager encounters new life forms that have a very unusual attraction to the ship. Meanwhile Kes's reproductive cycle, called "the elogium", is mysteriously triggered. She is not prepared for it, as she is too young. But the elogium occurs only once in the Ocampans' short lifespans, and if she wants to have a child, it must be now. Written by
