New Hailing Frequencies columnBy Amy

Fandom's Michelle Erica Green has posted the latest edition of her 'Hailing Frequencies' column. This week, it's entitled 'Voyager in Heat' and looks at Tuvok's upcoming (and in some crcles, long-awaited) pon farr plus the usual round-up of rumours and a book review.
Vorick had considered assuaging his desires with meditation or holograms, but apparently it wasn`t enough to satisfy him. Pon farr has been one of the most intriguing aspects of Vulcan culture since the Classic Trek episode "Amok Time" pitted Kirk and Spock against one another in a battle to the death, so let`s hope Paris offers Tuvok combat rather than some hokey holographic solution that would diminish the conceptual power of the mating drive. Of course, since the Vulcan alternative to sex is death, it`s possible that Tuvok could be the character who doesn`t survive the voyage home. But I`m betting that if a better solution isn`t found in the tasteful mode Brannon Braga prefers, some nice crewmember will offer to "save" him.
