Was it ever explained what the sores or growths on Kim and Torres were in the episode "Caretaker"? I get that the caretaker was looking for a mate but why the sores? And why not send them back to their own people instead of to the Ocampa? I guess they needed to be sent to the Ocampa for the story to continue but still...
