Star Trek: Voyager: Favorite Son

Stardate: 50732.4 During a meeting with a Nasari ship, Ensign Kim, on his own, opens fire on the vessel, claiming he felt the Nasari were about to fire on Voyager. Their investigation into Kim’s actions lead Voyager to the planet Taresia, and the stunning discovery that Kim was conceived on Taresia and his embryo implanted in a human on Earth.

The Taresians tell the crew that Kim and other Taresians are instinctively drawn back to the planet as adults. This adds to the race’s genetic material, insuring their survival.

However, after spending some time with the Taresians, Kim begins to suspect there is some hidden agenda going on, and his life may be in danger.
