Star Trek: VoyagerStardate 54452.6: A nasty turn in engineering leads to a momentous announcement for B’Elanna Torres – she is pregnant. She and Tom try to digest the news in private, but aboard the confines of a starship word gets out, and B’Elanna’s crewmembers are bombarding her with everything from unsolicited parenting advice to requests to be godparents. B’Elanna, meanwhile, is suffering through her own private hell, fearful that – like her own father did when she was young – Tom was get fed up with the temperaments of a Klingon wife and daughter and abandon them both. But an unusual possibility presents itself when the Doctor uses genetic manipulation to correct a potential deformity – and B’Elanna sees a way to ensure that while Tom’s wife may be half-Klingon, further genetic alterations could give them a completely human child. Tom disagrees, but B’Elanna will go to any lengths to give the child what she thinks is a “normal” life.
