Stardate not given: B’Elanna is outraged to discover that, to further her study of human sexual interaction, Seven of Nine has been taking notes on B’Elanna’s relationship with Tom. The Doctor recommends a more academic (and less voyeuristic) approach to Seven’s studies. In the meantime, as Captain Janeway beams down for a cultural exchange with the chaste Kadi race, a Kadi ambassador visits Voyager for a few days, forgoing his race’s conservative ways for a chance to experience every pleasure that Voyager has to offer, whether it’s Neelix’s cooking or scantily-clad women in the holodeck. And when the Kadi ambassador sets his sights on Seven, who has only barely begun to comprehend human relations under the Doctor’s tutelage, a serious diplomatic incident may be the result.
