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

Kes indicates that the Elogium is her one and only chance to get pregnant. Kes further implies that she only expects one child from this pregnancy. If this is true, simple math indicates that the Ocampan species would quickly die out. See more
