  • Although there are no grandiose special effects in this episode (besides the holographic projections of the baby), this episode offers outstanding character development of B'Ellana Torres.

    I am not saying that I am not a huge fan of the great visual effects and the awesome space fight scenes. However, it is this type of episode that really makes the characters more three dimensional. In a way, this and other Voyager episodes attempt to discuss a modern-day issue in lieu of the onset of medical advancement. Is it ethically or morally acceptable to perform genetic alterations to a fetus before it is born? Will mankind ever end this struggle with racial discrimination?

    At the same time, we are allowed to dive deeper into the psyche of B’Elanna Torres, revealing some of her fears, her childhood memories, and her vulnerabilities. It is also great to see the character development between her and Tom Paris, making their bond seem more genuine.
