A transporter mishap converges two into one.
16 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tuvok and Neelix, are on an away mission collecting plant life for the crew. Meanwhile the Voyager is experiencing some transporter malfunctions not knowing, that when used, it would materialize some unexpected results. Tuvok and Neelix, two separate beings have become one, Tuvix! Over time the crew have become used to the 'new' crew member, all but one,Kes. She misses her Neelix and finds the 'newer' version unsettling. Weeks pass and still they remain as one. Eventually the crew finds a way to separate the two conjoined souls. Kes wants her Neelix, and Tuvix wants to live. Tuvix does not deserve to die, but neither does Neelix and Tuvok. It is a hard choice that needs to be made.
