I chose the episode Blood Fever from the third season of Star Trek Voyager. Our resident half Klingon, B'Elanna, is approached by a young Vulcan, Vorik, on board who asks her to become his mate. He becomes forceful with her. She violently refuses (and it's awesome!) his advances. It is discovered that he is experiencing Pon Farr, his first Pon Farr. What is Pon Farr you may ask? Every seven years of an adult Vulcan's life they experience an urge to return to the home world and take a mate.

B'Elanna, Tom, and Neelix go on an away mission down on what appears to be an uninhabited planet. While there B'Elanna begins acting strangely. She gets angry and takes off on her own after biting Tom on the face. Throughout the episode they find out she is experiencing Pon Farr after her encounter with Vorik. She has chosen Tom as her mate. Vorik gets involved again and things go south from there.. This mix goes over it all..

a video for this episode with one of the mix songs, from my EARLY vidding days.

Zero – The Smashing Pumpkins
Vorik is overcome by the emotions of Pon Farr, the Vulcan mating ritual. He desires and confronts B’Elanna, asking if she will become his mate.

Tuvok: Please describe your actions.
Vorik: … I touched her face. I meant to be gentle but she tried to move away, and then I was holding her more tightly. Both hands on her face like this, it felt very important to not let go, I’m not certain why.
I wanted to bond with her, that much I remember clearly.

Lyrics –
I never let on, that I was on a sinking ship
I never let on that I was down
You blame yourself, for what you can't ignore
You blame yourself for wanting more
She's the one for me
She's all I really need
She's the one for me
She's my one and only

Animal Instinct – The Cranberries
B’Elanna is experiencing the effects of Vulcan Pon Farr after her encounter with Vorik/ She is unaware of what is going on. Just that she has all kinds of strange instincts and feelings.

B'Elanna: Why does everyone keep saying there’s something wrong with me?

Lyrics –
Suddenly something has happened to me
As I was having my cup of tea
Suddenly I was feeling depressed
I was utterly and totally stressed
Do you know you made me cry
Do you know you made me die

Get Out of Your Own Way – Trapt
Tom realizes B’Elanna is behaving differently. He wonders what is going on. Is she sick?

Tom: I tried to stop her from leaving captain, but she got very hostile and eh...bit me.

Lyrics –
I hear you saying you need a little more time
I hear you saying that you’re wasting your time
I hear you saying that you can’t get by
So many voices in your head you can’t make up your mind

I have a feeling that you want more
I have a feeling that you want more from me

Drumming Song – Florence + The Machine
B’Elanna is realizing the effects Tom is having on her during what people keep telling her is a Vulcan chemical imbalance called Pon Farr. She has bitten Tom, the Klingon marking of ones mate.

B’Elanna: You don't know how strong... how hard it is... to fight this... urge!
Tom: Are you telling me that I'm impossible to resist?
B’Elanna: I wouldn't go that far.

Lyrics –
I swallow the sound and it swallows me whole
Till there's nothing left inside my soul
As empty as that beating drum
But the sound has just begun

As I move my feet towards your body
I can hear this beat it fills my head up
And gets louder and louder
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

Death Valley – Fall Out Boy
Tom is processing his feelings and eventually accepts that he must help B’Elanna through her Pon Farr. He doesn’t want to risk their friendship but he doesn’t want her to die.

Tom: B'Elanna, stop it! This isn't about the gun, this is about sex. But that's not gonna happen right now.
B’Elanna: I think it is.

Lyrics –
We’re gonna die
It’s just a matter of time
Hard times come
Good times go
I’m either gone in an instant
Or here 'til the bitter end
I, I never know
What I’ve got will make you feel more alive
I’ll be your favorite drug, I will get you high
I will get you high

We're still,
We are alive,
Here in death valley
But don’t take love off the table yet
'Cause tonight
It’s just fire alarms and losing you
We love a lot
So, we only lose a little
But we are alive

Animal – Kristina Maria
Tom and B’Elanna have finally both arrived at the same place in the process and begin to resolve her Pon Farr.

Tom: I know this is a pretty bizarre situation. Probably not what either one of us had in mind.
B’Elanna: Tom, be quiet.

Lyrics –
Moving with your instincts
All you hear is but that heartbeat
Taking your position
To the hype that's in the story
Feeding off the spirits and the people are arousing
I can feel you pouncing
Damn the room is bouncing

Read me with the eyes
Ready to play
See me in the eyes
I'll be your prey

No more hesitation
The train has left the station
You should be released
Back into the wild

It's time, time to let the predator out
'Cause it's watch your back
You're a killer beast, you're an animal
And it's easy to see you're an animal

Tired – Stone Sour
Vorik has fooled the Doctor and the Captain that he is cured. He cuts communications with the ship and steals a shuttle to go hunt for his mate. He finds her in the arms of Tom Paris. He demands a fight for her.

Tuvok: Lieutenant Torres is out of contact on the planet.
Vorik: Then I'll find her. B'Elanna needs me, and I need her.

Lyrics –
You say this only makes me incomplete
I'm cancelled out and rendered obsolete
Tell the mad chameleon he's not welcome anymore
I know what I'm looking for

Somewhere close
Somewhere safe
Somewhere I know
I know I'll never live in chains
The one is now aware
So stay away from me
I'm just too young to care

Help I’m Alive – Metric
B’Elanna accepts the challenge Vorik has given Tom herself. She will belong to no one!

B’Elanna: If anyone is gonna smash your arrogant little face in, I will! I take your challenge. Myself!

Lyrics –
If we're still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn't I do?
I get wherever I'm going
I get whatever I need
While my blood's still flowing
And my heart's still
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer

Help I'm alive
My heart keeps beating like a hammer
Hard to be soft
Tough to be tender
Come take my pulse the pace is on a runaway train
Help I'm alive
My heart keeps beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer

We Are Stars – The Pierces
Pon Farr is resolved and things are awkward for Tom and B’Elanna. They come across each other in the turbo lift and she denies that what happened was real. He knows it was and she is hiding it. He tells her he likes what he saw. She warns him.

Tom: Yeah, I know, you're afraid that your big, scary Klingon side might've been showing. Well, I saw it up close. And you know, it wasn't so terrible. In fact, I wouldn't mind seeing it again someday.
B’Elanna: Careful what you wish for, Lieutenant.

Lyrics –
We are stars,
Fashioned in the flesh and bone,
We are islands,
Excuses to remain alone,
We are moons,
Throw ourselves around each other,
We are oceans,
Being controlled by the pull of another.

And I just wanna be loved by you,
Yeah I just wanna be loved by you,
I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you.
