Ensign Vorik spent his summers exploring the Osana caverns, which involved some very treacherous climbing. Vorik experienced ponn farr on stardate 50537.2 and also attempted to mate with fellow crewmember B'Elanna Torres. After a brief physical contact was made between them which initated the Vulcan telepathic mating bond which caused Torres to suffer the same neurochemical imbalance that Vulcans undergo. Vorik's pon farr was ended when he and Torres fought in the ritual Koon-ut-kal-if-fee.
Vorik was also a member of the development team that designed and built the Delta Flyer shuttlecraft in 2375.
