Beautiful alien women and a human's forbidden love for them has been a staple of Star Trek since the original TV series. Sometimes even the same hackneyed concept can be given a fresh spin as this episode does. Even more surprising that the human who falls for the alien is Harry Kim, one of the more straight laced characters in Voyager and usually seen in the role of Tom Paris' sidekick. He really gets to do something interesting this time.
