Intelligence reportA standard Star trek plot device mixed with the ongoing difficulty of running a starship in an unknown territory while integrating two very different crews.
The whole distress call thing is an excuse to let B'Elanna show how good she is at engineering, especially when compared to pasty Joe "think within the square" Carey. She's a wilful, arrogant, pig-headed, volatile woman, about what you'd expect from a Hispanic Klingon.
Klingon females are known throughout the Alpha Quadrant for their voracious sexual appetites. Latinas are just plain hot. It's no wonder their men are so butch.
Anyhoo, Parallax is mostly exposition for the rest of the series, showing the hard working crew trying to survive in a hostile corner of the galaxy.
