Star Trek: Voyager: Basics, Part I  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 26

(Season Finale) Captain's log, stardate 49858.5—and I mean a literal log, I'm talking into a log right now. Stranded on a wilderness planet again *sigh*…second time this month. No sign of friendly monkeys, though. Well, at least my whole crew is with me this time. …Oh right, except for the doctor—and, um, one of his nurses. Hm. Well, maybe we won't end up needing any medical treatment. Wildman's baby looks pretty tough, what with the forehead spikes and all. Anyway, they're starting to stare at me, so I'd better wrap this up. Our first order of business: we're gonna need tubs. Lots of tubs. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Resolutions  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 25

"I closed my eyes and sank deeper into the steamy bath, feeling my troubles and worries slip away. I was no longer a starship captain, really, no longer even a scientist after the oddly-precise storm destroyed all my technical equipment but left everything else untouched; now, I was just a woman. 'Everything OK, Kathryn?' I smiled, thinking of the man who was once my second-in-command, but now... now, just a man. A very considerate, thoughtful, available man. 'Better than OK, Com- I mean, Chakotay. Makes me wish that I'd gotten the incurable yet peculiarly asymptomatic space plague earlier. Say, you didn't happen to find a loofah out there, did you?'" -- from Passion's Pesilent Planet, Jane Katrina (pseud.) [more inside]

On stardate 49655.2, Lieutenant Tuvok was asked to remove himself from his ship of residence to collect samples. That request came from his captain.

With nowhere else to go, his transporter pattern merged with that of his crewmate, Neelix. Sometime earlier, Neelix's biological matter had thrown him out, requesting that he never return. Can two men share a body without driving each other crazy? [more inside]
