Isnt the blood fever technically a medical condition and if so, shouldn't it be categorized as such? – Distantlycharmed 21:41, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

I believe so. -Angry Future Romulan 21:42, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

And for that matter so is the pon farr...– Distantlycharmed 21:43, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

They are a part of the Vulcan sex and reproduction cycle. Not really medical conditions. -- sulfur 21:44, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

I see what you are saying, it is not a disease but B'Elanna got the blood fever and she suffered horribly, even though she isnt vulcan, and there was a clear chemical imbalance that could have lead to her death. It has clinical manifestations that can have dire consequences if not medically treated. – Distantlycharmed 21:53, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

I don't see why both categories can't be in the article. It is a part of their reproduction but (aside from being harmful to non-Vulcans) risks their death if they are unable to purge the fever.--31dot 22:39, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation? Edit

I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to put a disambiguation link for people looking for the Blood Fever Voyager episode.The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Why? The name of the episode is not Plak tow, and Blood Fever already redirects to "Blood Fever".--31dot 01:18, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
