Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Neelix literally works a pregnant woman until she goes into labor in the opening scene. I honestly don’t understand why he hasn’t already been thrown out an airlock. Anyways she then gives birth, which gets complicated, but they manage to beam the baby out.
They are able to contact each other and communicate their issues. This causes more problems when the phage monsters show up. They only detect one Voyager, the one that WASN’T practically destroyed. They board the ship and outnumber the crew…they are going to win. So Janeway of the nicer ship decides to self-destruct, and send her Kim and that baby over to the ship that will survive. The explosion destroys Voyager and the phage monster ship, just after Kim makes it to Voyager with the baby.
It is actually not a bad episode, it has our crew go through some tough shit, and has the ship practically destroyed which looks cool. It has some neat moments, but the sort of reset button that puts everything back to normal at the end is sort of disappointing.
