Rating: 1

This episode has the promise of expanding on Kes’ character as well as the Ocampa in general, but they end up just having her make funny faces and eat strange things while going through Ocampa-puberty.

    This may be the worst episode in all of Trek, culminating in Chakotay’s suggestion to turn Voyager upside-down (in soace?) to show the space creatures that Voyager is not a good mate.
    I get the idea of themed plot-subplots, but EVERYTHING here was just so painfully executed. It’s like they wanted a sex episode, but asked a 10-year-old to write it.
