Does anyone else think it's weird that B'Elanna and Tom are excited about having a kid on Voyager?
That ship is always in mortal danger.
I wonder if they would be looked at funny if they chose to have an abortion based on their current living situation.
Oh yeah, kill the baby because there's the possibility it might die. That makes sense.
Or it simply could be that they're excited because they're having a kid regardless of the setting. If anything that excitement would override any imminent danger they're in. They can't do anything about that danger, they can do something about their family and they were.
