Series: Star Trek: Voyager
This is an interesting one. Deals with death and death rituals. I won’t go into all the details, but it has some interesting notions. As a result of an investigation on an asteroid for some new element (because WHY GET HOME?), Ensign Kim accidentally gets transported to some other dimension or something, where these people send their bodies to evolve when they die, but unfortunately the fact is that there is no afterlife and they end up rotting on an asteroid.
It has some actually decent ideas, ideas that unfortunately disappear later in his work with both Voyager and Enterprise.
