[VOY] Season 3, Episode 16: Blood Fever
Pon Farr is still really silly, making parts of this episode hard to watch. There are some positive elements, and I recommend watching it for some cool foreshadowing.

He asks B’Elanna to marry him
She says no, so then there’s face grabbing!
Vorik’s got the Pon Farr
B’Elanna, Neelix and Paris go down to a planet because they detected a resource they need. They also find some ruins of a civilization that was destroyed
Then Neelix and B’Elanna fall down a hole, so B’Elanna bites Paris and runs away
Tuvok and Chakotay go down, and Tuvok figures out that the Pon Farr has been transferred to B’Elanna
Some aliens show up. They’re really paranoid because their people were destroyed in a matter of hours by invaders they never saw
The Doctor suggest Vorik just take a temporary holodeck mate so he won’t die from Pon Farr
“This isn’t about the gun, this is about sex!”
Paris is a good guy because he won’t take advantage of B’Elanna while she’s in this state, but also it was explained to him that she will die if her Pon Farr isn’t resolved so he’s also kind of a bad guy. Mostly it’s just that Pon Farr is dumb
Eventually they decide that in order to save B’Elanna, Paris has to have sex with her
But then Vorik saves us from that happening! Fighting also resolves Pon Farr!
Tuvok says hey, let’s just let them fight
They find a skeleton of one of the invaders! A Borg!
