While surveying for gallicite, Ensign Vorik undergoes the Pon Farr and chooses Torres as his mate...
Ok, seriously - why are Federation ships made from such rare minerals and metals? It just leads to serious problems for starships stranded thousands of light years from home. Meanwhile, our young Vulcan engineer begins his first Pon Farr... the shedding of all logic and emotional control and the desire to just go wild, like a school leaver going to schoolies (or spring break for my American readers..)

Torres and Paris begin their relationship here, admitting that it was unrequited for a long time but the seeds have been sowed here and things will only, slowly, grow. And this is our first allusion to what's coming... the Borg... and what an allusion! Just dropped in at the very end with no explanation, no background... it's just there and then ROLL CREDITS. Awesome.
