Overview

Kes was an Ocampa, one of an elf-like race native to the Delta Quadrant, with a lifespan of only 9 years. Her father was named Benaren. She was taken on board the USS Voyager crew with her partner, Neelix, who had rescued her from the Kazon. Kes was taken as a slave of the Kazon during her attempt to escape the tedium of the normal Ocampan lifestyle, in the hope of developing her psionic powers, which her ancestors were rumored to have possessed with great proficiency. Kes' psionic powers were relatively unknown, even to herself. They were never honed because of the Ocampan life style, which depended solely on the Caretaker for provisions and protection.

During her time aboard Voyager, Kes develops a close friendly relationship with the Doctor as his assistant medical technician. Kes receives medical training and even helps the Doctor learn how to interact more easily with the crew. She also helps him develop social skills... like helping him get a date with Vidiian Dr. Danara Pel ("Life Signs"), and even supporting him when he deals with the loss of his "daughter" in a holographic family simulation ("Real Life").

In the episode "Before and After", Kes participates in Voyager's year-long battle with the Krenim, becoming infected with particles from a chronoton torpedo. Kes marries Tom Paris, and they have a daughter Linnis (named after Kes' mother). Linnis is married to Harry Kim and they have a son named Andrew, grandson of Kes. At this time, Kes is nine years old and ready to accept her death at the age normal for Ocampans. The Doctor, however, is not, so he devises a bio-temporal chamber, which has the unintentional effect of reactivating chronotons dormant in Kes' body from her exposure to the chronoton torpedo several years earlier. This begins sending Kes on a backwards journey through her life. Kes becomes aware of what is happening, and once she has travelled back to the time corresponding to an earlier part of Voyager's conflict with the Krenim, she informs the Doctor in the past what is happening to her and relays the exact temporal frequency of the chronoton torpedo. This enables the Doctor to devise a treatment and restore Kes to normal temporal sync. Unfortunately, it also renders the events of Kes' future, including her marriage to Tom Paris as well as her daughter Linnis, into an alternate timeline which never comes to pass. She is, however, still able to inform Captain Kathryn Janeway about the coming "Year of Hell". Before and After is an episode of Star Trek: Voyager, the 21st episode of the third series. ...

Kes has a long-term romantic relationship with Neelix, the ship's cook, but later calls it off after she decides he is too jealous, suffocating and protective.


In the episode "Warlord", Kes treats an Ilaran man carrying the consciousness of former Ilaran tyrant Tieran. Sensing Kes' powers, Tieran transfers his mind into her for his own goal of re-conquering Ilara. After Tieran enters her mind, but before anyone realizes it, she steals a shuttlecraft to go to Ilara. After the entire ordeal is resolved, and having Tieran purged from her mind, Kes is somewhat traumatized from the violent acts she participated in as Tieran. Tuvok tells her that she will have to learn and adapt from the experience and that she will never be quite the same again. Warlord is an episode of Star Trek: Voyager, the 10th episode of the third season. ...


Voyager later becomes entangled in a major conflict between the Borg and the very mysterious aliens referred to as 'Species 8472' ("Scorpion"). Due in part to her exposure to the powerful telepathic influx of Species 8472, Kes soon begins to "evolve" into a different state of being. She could no longer remain with Voyager, but before leaving she uses her newly acquired "powers" to hurl Voyager and crew safely beyond Borg space, 9,500 light-years closer to Earth ("The Gift").

Kes revisits Voyager, in a story involving time travel ("Fury"). At this point she appears much older than she was earlier, and is very powerful, and vengeful toward the Voyager crew. Fortunately, after she abruptly travels to the past, her initial attempt to hand the past Voyager over to the Vidiians while she takes her past self home is thwarted. Using their new foreknowledge of these events, the present Janeway and Tuvok create a hologram of Kes at the time who reminds her future self about her affection for the crew, and how much they had cared for her, thus showing Kes how irrational her hatred is. The episode ends with her taking her ship back to Ocampa. Time travel is a concept that has long fascinated humanity—whether it is Merlin experiencing time backwards, or religious traditions like Mohammeds trip to Jerusalem and ascent to heaven, returning before a glass knocked over had spilt its contents. ...
