Love-hate on this ep for me.
I loved the idea of an interstellar race & loved how the crew got into it.
I was well nigh exhausted by the childishness of both Tom & B'Elanna by that point. Yep, he's a selfish, childish bastard who thinks only about his good times. We get it.
However, when something like this comes up, B'Elanna could have a little more understanding of the guy she's involved with.
I spent a good portion of this episode yelling "Grow up, already" at the both of them.
