Discussion in 'Star Trek: Voyager' started by The Illusive Man, Mar 3, 2014.
Torres: And you've chosen me?
Vorik: I have come to greatly admire not only your impressive technical skills, but also your bravery and sense of moral duty, all excellent qualities in a prospective mate.
TORRES: But you're Vulcan. I am half-Klingon. I really can't imagine...
VORIK: Perhaps we are not an obvious match. However, our differences would complement each other. You've often expressed frustration with your Klingon temper. My mental discipline would help you control it. Furthermore, I feel that...
Torres: Wait, please. Please, I'm, I see that you've given this a lot of, er, logical thought and I really am very flattered, but my answer is no. I'm sorry.
VORIK: B'Elanna! You may wish to reconsider. Your choices for a mate are currently limited to 73 male crew members on this ship, some of whom are already unavailable.
TORRES: I'll worry about my choices myself, thank you.
Vorik: I should also remind you that many humanoid species are unable to withstand Klingon mating practices-
TORRES: Okay, that's enough.
(I MUCH prefer being B'Elanna to Vorik! )
Vorik: ...Whereas my superior Vulcan strength would make me a very suitable partner.
Vorik touches B'Elanna's face, B'Elanna pushes him back and convinces him to go to the floor... with her fists.
KES: Here are the results of his cortical scan. (Hands result to EMH)
TORRES: So what's wrong with him?
The Doctor: In addition to a dislocated jaw, Ensign Vorik seems to be suffering from a neurochemical imbalance.
TORRES: Meaning what?
The Doctor: I believe I should discuss that with the patient privately.
Kes and Torres leave.
The Doctor: You're going through the Pon farr, aren't you?
VORIK: That's an extremely personal question, Doctor
EMH: Yes, I'm aware that Vulcans prefer to keep their mating practices very much to themselves. There's almost nothing in the medical database beyond a few observations made by Starfleet doctors over the years. Your symptoms, the chemical imbalance and loss of emotional control are consistent with those observations. Have you been eating and sleeping normally?
VORIK: I knew there was something wrong. I was hoping it wasn't this.
EMH: I assume this is your first Pon farr? There's nothing to be embarrassed about. It's a normal biological function. I'll do what I can to help you through it, but I'll need a little more information.
VORIK: We do not discuss it.
