B`elanna Torres is a fictional female Klingon in the Star Trek - Voyager television series who was played on screen by Roxann Dawson. Half-Klingon / Half-Human engineer of the USS Voyager. She was part of the Marquis crew who were abducted by the Caretaker in the pilot episode. She has a quick temper which sometimes gets the better of her
She becomes the chief engineer when the original engineer of Voyager is killed during his line of duty. At first, Janeway wanted the Voyagers' second in command in engineering to be Chief Engineer but a mix of performance and recommendation by star Trek - Voyager">Chakotay saw her promoted.
B'elanna studied as Starfleet Academy but left as she became despondent. She was always answering back and disagreeing with one particularly tutor. Janeway revealed to B'elanna when they were along that the tutor actually like B'elanna and was saddened when she left. Ref: Parallax
B'elanna grew up in a colony on Kessik IV with her Klingon mother. They were the only Klingons in the colony. B'elanna's father left the family when B'elanna was five years old, leaving her with just her mother to look after her. She believed that he left because she looked like a Klingon. Faces
As the crew of Voyager travel back to the Alpha Quadrant, she becomes close to Tom Paris and eventually they marry. During her travel home, B'elanna gives birth to a baby girl which they named Miral Paris. The daughter hatches a plan with Captain Kathryn Janeway to get the Voyager back sooner than they did in the original timeline in End Game
Earlier, when the Hirogen had taken control of the Voyager, B'elanna was tricked into thinking she was pregnant and part of the resistance. It was a case of what was to come.
The Vidiians have captured B'elanna and have separated her into two people, a Klingon and a human version. The Vidiians are a race of humans who have been inflicted with a disease that disfigures them. In order to try to find a cure for the Phage, they created two separate B'elannas.
The Klingons have a natural immunity to the disease and the lead Vidiian scientist hoped by separating the two, he would be able to find out how Klingons are able to be immune from the disease.
B'elanna is not the only one experimented on, another crew member comes off far worse as the lead scientists uses the crew members face to see if B'elanna reacts differently if she sees a human face.
The two B'elanna work together to get back to Voyager. The Klingon version is killed during the escape bid. Doctor adds part of the Klingon DNA back to the suriving B'elanna, otherwise B'elanna will die.
