Coldfire: We finally encounter the other being that the Caretaker spoke about in the series premiere. I loved seeing Kes develop her telepathic abilities in this episode. The scenes between her and the other alien of her race (can't remember his name) were very interesting, as were her training sessions with Tuvok. All in all, a very solid episode.
Kes is more than just telepathic, she's psychokenetic.
That's means whatever she sets her mind too, she can control on a molecular level.
It makes Kes equal to Jean Grey when she was the Phoenix.(did you notice she had the big "O" when she killed all the plants)
Kes and her race are Ocampian.
