god i love these two sfm

I just rewatched ‘Lineage’ and it reminded me of how freaking much I love Tom Paris - the way he just thinks that his daughter is going to be perfect and that she’s beautiful just the way she is/will be and that there’s nothing wrong with being part-Klingon and LOOKING Klingon, and it jUST HIT ME RIGHT IN THE FEELS ALL OVER AGAIN OKAY

(also: my heart aches for B'Elanna every single time I watch this episode GODS I LOVE THESE TWO SFM)
