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 its series of ritual endurance tests, but blood pie and painstiks are the last thing on her mind when an emergency necessitates ejecting Voyager's warp core. Torres and Tom Paris are sent in a shuttlecraft to retrieve it, but the needy Caatati aliens, judging Voyager's generosity a bit short, commandeer 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 oxygen running out. Accepting her impending death, B'Elanna voices her true opinion of Tom.

Did You Know?


The title and concept of 'Day of Honor' was used by a whole series of Star Trek novels. See more »


Torres and Paris beam out into space. They float adrift with seemingly no tether between them until the script requires them to literally pull themselves together to interplex the com systems of both spacesuits. It's hard to catch, but Paris tethers his suit to Torres' just before teleporting. See more »


Tom Paris: Why is it we have to get beamed into space in environmental suits before I can initiate first contact procedures?
B'Elanna Torres: Why is it that, if we're alone for more than thirty seconds, you start thinking about contact?

I Wish Captain Sisko Was Here
11 February 2021 | by beanslegitSee all my reviews

This episode shows more of Captain Janeways inability to ignore a single plea for help even when it is Voyager who really needs help, and even when it constantly gets Voyager and all it's crew into serious trouble. Sisko would have told these space beggars where to go, and just maintained his current misison, which Janeway constantly forgets about: GETTING HOME! He also would have smeared them across time and space if they got in his way or threatened his ship.

There are some nice interactions between Paris and Torres, and some decent writing in parts and of course a bigger role for the new member of the crew, 7 of 9. It will be intriguing to see what she does in future episodes as she's instantly more interesting than Kes ever was. Maybe it's her formidable assets clouding my judgement at this time but I think she's an excellent addition to the crew.

Overall I would watch this one for continuity's sake, but I'm getting quite sick of Janeway's oft ill fated generosity when they haven't encountered any return on it in their whole ordeal in the Delta quadrant. They lose shuttle after shuttle, and ensign after ensign but still the good Captain instantly trusts every alien race with a sob story (and they pretty much all have one)
