Klingon Preachers and Stem Cells
14 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And Neelix finally gets "Doch nga'chuq" after 7 years.

Voyager is in the process of "Move Along Home" when they get bombarded with Klingon Disruptors. 7-of-69's Magic Astrometrics Gadget gives Voyager an advantage over an 80-year old D-7 Battle Cruiser, so their Captain Kohlar (Wren T. Brown) beams over.

These Refuges from Qo'NoS have been traveling for generations looking for "The Kuvamagh" - Some kind of Klingon Messiah, so they pick B'Elanna's unborn child to be this god!

Suddenly, 200 Klingons are all over Voyager cos they blew up their ship. This Kohlar is the epitome of an Evangelical, Charismatic Preacher, even talks like one. Kind of sounds like The Sisko in that regard.

Actually I liked it, a full Klingon that spoke like Martin Luther King. But Kohlar's side-kick "T'Greth" (Sherman Howard) has a smaller Faith than Kohlar's - At least in Appearance.

Because as Kohlar orally and Visibly seems to expound a full Faith in his Klingon Religion, he actually just wants an End to the Wandering.

It was convenient they came across the One Ship in the Delta Quadrant with at least one partially Klingon Crewoman who had been knocked up during the one month that the Kuvamagh was supposed to be conceived.

So it seems that with Kohlar, in Losing his Faith, he found it. But this must needs be tested. T'Greth challenges Paris to a duel to the death, which Janeway immediately intervenes in to make it potentially less bloody.

But these Klingons are all infected with "The Tourette Syndrome" and it infects B'Elanna and her Baby. T'Greth see this as yet another shortcoming with their new "'IHrIStoS ngan voDleH" and moves to take over Voyager. Fast thinking by Tuvok and Janeway prevent this, giving the Doctor the time he needs to find a cure for Tourette Syndrome.

And it is all in B'Elanna's Child's Split Heritage Stem Cells. So they have found their Saviour after all.

There is a little Side-Comedy when a large and beautiful Klingon Woman "Ch'Rega" (Peggy Jo Jacobs) gets infatuated with Harry - Aw, C'Mon Harry, this would have made up for "Seven" Years of falling for the Wrong Borg! But he's too Chicken, whereas Neelix is not!

I'll say this about Neelix, that man can ADAPT. It seems he is another like Dax from Deep Space Nine, who although not a Klingon understands what a Klingon is and loves it. This is probably his finest moment on Voyager.

Faith and Comedy, kind of an unusual mixture of concepts, but not too far fetched, because it is Faith that makes us believe in Trek just as much as it is Faith that drives our belief in The Prophets.

Ironically, although this is a Fiction, this is precisely how Faith is. Faith is not the Blind following of one's Religion, it's when a person believes in where that Religion will take them, and sometimes we do things in frustration with that Faith that are the exact Steps we should take - In this story, Kohlar's frustration and seeking to end his ship's wandering - Or rather, his giving up - Was the very thing that brought him to his personal Goal. That is how Faith Works. It is not by blindly following a book of Rules, but by knowing in your Heart what is right, and sometimes that means going against what is written in the Rulebook.
