Regarding Torres' birthdate, she says in {{VOY|Extreme Risk}} that she was nineteen when she quit Starfleet Academy and, by [[2376]], it was ten years since she entered the Academy and ten years since she last spoke with her mother. ({{VOY|Equinox, Part II|Barge of the Dead}}) Torres quit the Academy in her second year, at age nineteen in [[2368]], which puts her birth year at [[2349]]. The script of {{e|Caretaker}} gave further indication as to Torres' age, referring to her as "''a half-Klingon, half-Human woman in her twenties.''" A press release issued by Paramount on the launch of the series stated, "''B'Elanna is a beautiful 25 year old woman who is half Human, half Klingon.''" This information would then place B'Elanna's birthdate at 2346, but this was not stated in the series itself. [http://www.startrek.com/article/star-trek-archive-announcing-voyager]
