Story: Barge of the Dead
Written By: Bryan Fuller
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
It is sort of fitting that the final episode ever worked on in Trek (oh maybe someday that could change...wouldn’t that be lovely) that Ronald D. Moore worked on is a Klingon mythology focused episode. B’Elanna returns from a shaky shuttle mission and begins experiencing some hallucinations. It is discovered there is a piece of Klingon metal trapped on her shuttle’s nacelle, and then she sees blood..and everyone goes Klingon crazy...before she is suddenly she is told she is dead, and taken onto the Barge of the Dead to take her to Klingon Hell. And then her mother arrives, just before she wakes up on Voyager. She can’t shake that feeling that it was all real, and wants to return to the Barge to save her mother before she is sent to that Klingon Hell.
