Re: Paris + B'Elanna scene, absolute cop-out
After all the different episodes and films throughout the franchise, pon farr doesn't make a lot of sense. It's as if the Vulcans never discovered masturbation.
And I still don't understand how a human/Klingon female apparently catches a Vulcan plak tow that seemed to affect only Vulcan males. But I only recall seeing the episode once and it seemed completely illogical then.
Edit: And before anyone mentions T'Pol, prior to that there was nothing definitive that Vulcan females were affected.
