Again, working right to left, finish julienning the first half of the onion. There are more pictures here that will explain it all. A roux is equivalent amounts of flour and butter, cooked together. Traditionally, the seasonings are salt, white pepper and nutmeg. It's pretty much a cheese sauce before you add the cheese, with a little nutmeg to make it fancy.
That said, I think this tart is even better a day or two after it's baked, so I always prepare it the day before, then pull it from the fridge a couple of hours before service, to give it time to come to room temperature. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large pan over medium heat until melted. Add the onions, thyme and a pinch of salt.
Saute until soft and translucent no browning , about 15 minutes. Set aside. When frothing, whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and heat, whisking occasionally, until it comes to the boil. Boil slowly for 1 minute, stirring constantly. The mixture will be very thick. Season to taste with salt about 1 teaspoon and pepper. Cool 10 minutes. Beat the whole egg and the yolk together. Lightly beat the white and set aside.
Roll out the shortcrust dough into an inch tart pan. Prick holes all over the surface of the crust with a fork, then par-bake as directed. As the tart shell par-bakes, crisp the optional diced bacon in a small pan over medium heat. Drain the bits over paper towel. Centre the tart pan with crust on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until almost set in the centre, about minutes.

Torres' quarters were on Deck 9 , Section While exploring a nebula, Torres discovered that it was actually a living creature and that by entering the cloud-like being, Voyager had wounded it. Torres modified a nucleogenic beam and was able to heal the wounded creature. While visiting the Sikarians , she learned that they possessed the ability to fold space and travel great distances.
This would have greatly reduced the length of Voyager 's journey, but the aliens refused to share their technology because of their prime directive. She wanted to steal the technology or make an illegal trade for it, but Janeway ordered her not to do so. She ignored Janeway's order and arranged a meeting with one of the aliens. She was shocked when Tuvok assisted her, but the technology was not compatible with Voyager. VOY : " Prime Factors ". Later that same year, Torres was captured by Vidiians , who experimented on her. Initially both were unaware of each other, the Klingon Torres being tested by Sulan while the Human Torres was in the labor camp with Paris, but they eventually became aware of each other when each attempted to escape at the same time.
Although initially hostile towards each other as they resented the other's raw aggression and frailty respectively, the two pooled together to infiltrate the main control room and shut down the force field protecting the facility. The Klingon Torres gave her life to save the Human Torres and, once aboard Voyager , The Doctor was able to recombine both elements of Torres' DNA, as the procedure to separate them had compromised the Human Torres' ability to process key proteins.
The following year she was imprisoned by the Mokra Order while trying to secure tellerium. She was subsequently rescued by Janeway. Torres was also kidnapped by automated personnel units created by an extinct race to fight their wars. The units wanted Torres to help create new units because they had been unable to stabilize their power units. Torres was able to create a prototype from which they could create more units but she learned that their former creators had called off the war and the units refused to stop fighting, killing their creators in the process.
As different units arrived from the other side of the war, a battle ensued. The new prototype that Torres had created would have allowed the Pralor robots to win the war against the Cravic robots. Torres destroyed the prototype and was beamed aboard Voyager while the units continued their civil war. VOY : " Resistance ", " Prototype ". Later, Voyager encountered the Cardassian automated missile called Dreadnought that Torres had reprogrammed while she was still in the Maquis. They found that it had been brought into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker and was headed towards the inhabited planet Rakosa V , which it thought to be Aschelan V , the site of a Cardassian fuel depot.
Torres was able to beam aboard it and, with some difficulty, destroy the missile. At first she refused to let The Doctor harvest some of her brain tissue to find a cure for the Phage when Danara Pel , a Vidiian scientist for whom The Doctor developed romantic feelings, was beamed aboard Voyager. She later consented and it helped The Doctor retard the Phage in Pel.
VOY : " Lifesigns ". Torres and Kim had their consciousnesses captured in a hibernation status control by an evil entity known as The Clown. She was released to inform Janeway that if they tried to disable the program, the Clown would kill the Kohl captives and Kim. VOY : " The Thaw ". During a physical encounter with the Kazon she accidentally projected The Doctor into outer space. While stranded on a hostile planet when the Kazon took over Voyager , she helped rescue Neelix and Kes from a primitive tribe on the planet. While Voyager was transporting a group of Enarans , Torres began having dreams of genocide against members of their race known as "the Regressives".
In her dreams, Torres was reliving the experiences of an Enaran named Jora Mirell. The real Mirell was transmitting her memories to Torres. After Mirell died, Torres confronted the Enarans who denied any knowledge of the event; they left, but not before Torres was able to transfer the memories to another Enaran.
VOY : " Remember ". In another encounter, Torres and Paris were attacked by unknown aliens.
She was able to recover and get Paris back to Voyager for medical care. VOY : " The Swarm ". Later that year, Torres was affected by the pon farr when Vorik , a Vulcan crewmate, tried to mate with her. This spurred her Klingon mating instincts which caused many problems. This also led to the first obvious hints of a relationship with Tom Paris. While under the influence of the pon farr , Torres and Paris shared a passionate kiss and intimate revelations about their feelings toward each other. But after fighting with Vorik in the ritual challenge which purged her of the fever, she only vaguely acknowledged what happened.
VOY : " Blood Fever ". Torres reprogrammed The Doctor's perfect holo-family into a more realistic example of family life, which caused him distress but ultimately gave him a better understanding of family life and its problems. She helped end the crew's imprisonment by the Nyrians when the crew was imprisoned on a bio-sphere ship. Torres reconfigured The Doctor's optical sensors so that he could detect passages that led to different biospheres.
This enabled them to access a translocation system that allowed the crew to escape. She also took part in a holoprogram about a mutiny on Voyager that Tuvok had programmed as a training exercise for his security detail. The program turned deadly after being tampered with by Seska when she had been on the ship two years earlier. Torres had difficulty controlling her anger. She verbally attacked Seven finding it hard to believe she had no "sense of guilt" for her past as a Borg.
While trying to modify the warp core, it became critical and had to be dumped. Paris and Torres left in a shuttle to retrieve it. Upon finding it, they discovered a Caatati trying to salvage it and, after a brief fight, the shuttle was destroyed with the two left in space in their spacesuits. As their air dwindled, Torres was forced to confront her true feelings and told Paris she loved him, just as Voyager , which retrieved the core from the Caatati, arrived to rescue them.
VOY : " Day of Honor ". She accompanied The Doctor on an away mission to save an another sentient hologram stranded on a disabled ship. Torres discovered that the hologram had killed the organics on the ship, and had gone mad. She was able to deactivate him before he killed her. VOY : " Revulsion ". Torres was used as a pawn in an illegal trade of violent thoughts on the planet Mari. She was imprisoned for transferring violent thought to the citizens, but Tuvok proved her innocence. During the Hirogen takeover of Voyager , when they used the crew in various hunting scenarios, she was a pregnant resistance fighter carrying the baby of one of the German officers who had taken advantage of her.
An alien switched bodies with Paris and claimed his life aboard Voyager. For a time he even fooled Torres. After examining a substance she had discovered on a toxic planet, Torres found that the substance was sentient and could duplicate lifeforms. She was one of the crew who allowed her DNA to be duplicated by the aliens so that they could experience consciousness. VOY : " Demon ". Torres battled an alien space craft with a bio-neural interface in order to save Paris. Alice attempted to kill Torres by sealing a hatch in the shuttle and shutting off life support systems.
Paris saved her.
She fought the Vaadwaur , who, after reviving from stasis, tried to capture Voyager. Torres crashed on a planet where, in exchange for parts to repair the shuttle, she told Kelis , a poet, stories he later used to amuse the head of his planet. In , Voyager , using a Hirogen communication system, made contact with Starfleet.
Torres became extremely depressed when she learned that most of her Maquis friends had been killed by the Dominion. She began taking unnecessary risks, such as using the holodeck with its safety protocols turned off. Along with Paris and Kim, she launched a new shuttle called the Delta Flyer in which they encountered the Malon species. During a battle with them, she devised a way to contain a gas leak and save the crew and the shuttle.
This made Torres feel needed again, and her depression subsided. VOY : " Extreme Risk ". Icheb became infatuated with Torres after he thought she was giving him signals that she was interested in him. Before that, Seven recommended Torres to help him study for the warp mechanics section in the Starfleet Academy entrance exam. VOY : " Nightingale ", " Imperfection ". Torres was in an accident and when in a coma she found herself in Klingon Hell, Gre'thor. There she met her mother, Miral, who told her that Torres' rejection of Klingon ways had doomed them both.
When Torres woke up, she asked to be put into a coma again so she could save her mother. The Doctor did as she asked. Her mother is saved not by Torres dying for her or by performing Klingon rituals, but rather by Torres living a good life and being true to herself. She again confronted her Klingon side when she became pregnant. She was afraid to have a baby because she thought that the baby would suffer as she had during her childhood. She found out that the child had a deformed spine that The Doctor could correct genetically in the womb.
When she saw a projection of the child and discovered it had Klingon ridges, she questioned whether she wanted the child. She asked The Doctor to make further genetic changes so that the child would not have Klingon features. She falsely altered a diagnostic test that convinced The Doctor that the changes were necessary. Paris found out about the false report and stopped The Doctor from performing the procedure.
He discovered that she blamed herself for her father having left her because she was Klingon. Paris convinced her that he would never do that and wanted a child just like her. She believed him and accepted the pregnancy. Voyager encountered a Klingon generational ship. They were on a quest to find the savior of the Klingon race, the kuvah'magh. The captain of the Klingon ship, Kohlar , believed her child to be the kuvah'magh. They initiated the self-destruct sequence which in turn caused a warp core breach and Janeway transported their entire crew on board to save them.
Kohlar wanted Torres to help him convince his crew that her child really was their savior. When she was insulted by a Klingon warrior, Tom Paris accepted a challenge from him to defend her honor. The warrior collapsed in the battle and The Doctor discovered the Nehret , a fatal disease, caused the collapse. Because the Nehret is only contagious to Klingons, she and the baby became infected.
Because of this Kohlar's group no longer believed the child could be their savior and they tried to take over Voyager , but failed. The Doctor discovered a cure to the Nehret using the baby's immune system. The Klingons finally came to believe that the baby was their savior and Janeway dropped them off on an uninhabited M-class planet. Torres and Paris considered the name Kuvah'Magh for their baby. VOY : " Prophecy ".
She wed Paris after an interstellar starship race that Irina , one of the participants, tried to sabotage and thereby destroy the peace in the area. She had joined Paris in the race because she wished to share his interests. A bomb was planted on their ship, but they were able to eject it in time. They married after the race. VOY : " Drive ". After holograms used by the Hirogen became self-aware, they rebelled and killed many Hirogen. The holograms were led by Iden , who believed that all organics should be destroyed.
After their holoprograms became unstable during a battle with the Hirogen and Voyager , Torres, an expert on holo-emitters, was kidnapped. At first believing that they only wanted to be left alone, Torres helped enhance their technology. Once she realized that Iden was bent on destroying organics, she stopped him with the aid of The Doctor. Torres asked Janeway to let the other holograms go and Janeway agreed. VOY : " Flesh and Blood ". Torres built a polaron modulator that helped Voyager escape a void in space that trapped ships.
VOY : " The Void ". During the final battle with the Borg which led to Voyager 's return home, Torres gave birth to her daughter Miral. VOY : " Endgame ". In , Torres was attacked by a cytoplasmic lifeform that attached itself to her and used her organs to stay alive. The Doctor saved her using a hologram of a Cardassian doctor named Crell Moset. Torres refused to allow Moset to operate on her because he was Cardassian albeit a holographic one. Moset was in fact a war criminal who had experimented on Bajoran prisoners.
When Torres' condition became critical, Captain Janeway decided to let Moset operate on her, despite Torres' wishes.
VOY : " Nothing Human ". The previous year she had allowed her DNA to be duplicated by the bio-mimetic beings on the Demon planet. In her counterpart married the Paris duplicate, and later died from subspace radiation with the rest of the duplicated crew. VOY : " Course: Oblivion ". Torres encountered the Malon again when she was part of an away team that entered a Malon vessel to shut it down before it exploded and contaminated space with theta radiation. She discovered that the rupture was made by a Malon named Dremk who wished to show the danger of transporting theta radiation.
When he refused to let her seal the ruptured tanks, he attacked her and she killed him to save herself and Voyager. The two ships came in conflict when it was discovered that the Equinox was killing sentient nucleogenic lifeforms for an energy source. The Equinox was finally destroyed and Burke was killed by the creatures. During Voyager 's first contact with the Borg , she helped to engineer nanoprobes that were used as weapons against Species , who had become a threat not only to Voyager , but to the Borg as well. When Seven, on board Voyager , attempted to assimilate the vessel after the Species threat had been eliminated, Torres created a power surge through Seven that disabled her.
This severed Seven's link to the Collective. She took part in the attempt to steal a Borg transwarp coil that would shorten Voyager 's journey home. When Seven had been lured back to the collective in the heist, Torres manned the weapons systems allowing the Delta Flyer to rescue Seven. VOY : " Dark Frontier ". During the last year of Voyager 's trip home, Torres helped to deal another blow to the Borg.
She, along with Janeway and Tuvok, allowed themselves to be assimilated by the Borg. But the assimilation was only of her body. She utilized an inoculation administered by The Doctor before the mission that kept her mind from being assimilated, and thus kept her from becoming a Borg drone. She implanted a pathogen into the collective which slowly brought various Borg drones out of the collective consciousness. This led to a Borg civil war.
VOY : " Unimatrix Zero ". B'Elanna was an only child of mixed heritage. Her father John Torres was Human, and her mother Miral was a Klingon, which has caused many trials and tribulations in her life. Her grandmother on her mother's side, L'Naan , died when she was young, so she was taught to say the prayer of remembrance for her, and her great-grandmother mother of L'Naan Krelik.
On her father's side was her father's mother, her grandmother, who could always put a smile on her face, even when she was very depressed, by cooking banana pancakes. Also on her father's side was her father's brother, her Uncle Carl. On a few occasions when she was young, her Uncle Carl took her and her father, and his children her three cousins: Elizabeth , Dean , and Michael to go camping and fishing.
It was twelve days after the last of these camping trips that her father left her and her mother. Miral and B'Elanna had a large fight in early , and this was the last time she spoke with her mother until a decade later. In , while trapped in the Delta Quadrant, on the ten-year anniversary of their not speaking, B'Elanna was in a shuttle accident, putting her into a coma. While in the coma, she was sent to the Barge of the Dead , where she found out that her mother had died in the Alpha Quadrant and was being sent to Gre'thor.
After discovering this, her crewmates were able to resuscitate her. She read several ancient Klingon texts, including the Eleventh Tome of Klavek from the paq'batlh , and concluded that she had to go back, as it was her fault her mother was being sent to the Klingon hell , for her not following Klingon traditions as her mother was supposed to teach her to do. After working hard to persuade Captain Janeway to allow her to, and telling Tom that she would, she returned to the Barge by simulating her death.
She asked to perform the transference ritual, so that her mother would go to Sto-vo-kor , for the honored dead, and B'Elanna would go to Gre'thor for her. When she found out that once in Gre'thor, even her crewmates couldn't bring her back from death, and despite the fact that her mother forbade it, she decided to do so. Once in Gre'thor, which was a representation of Voyager , she argued with her former crew as well as her mother, demanding to know what they want from her.
After begging and pleading, they finally made her understand that they didn't want anything from her — just her. She would be sent back to Voyager as "it wasn't her time. When B'Elanna was young, she was very close to her father. She said she "worshipped him", and their family was very close, if fragile, for a time. But after a couple years, B'Elanna's mother's Klingon attitude was wearing him down. When he began to be unable to take it, he scheduled a camping trip with his brother, and brought B'Elanna along. On the camping trip, he confessed that it was getting harder and harder to live with Miral, and that his mother never thought he had what it took to love a Klingon woman, "and now he [had] two.
But what she also said, which would haunt her for more than twenty years, was "If you can't handle it anymore, why don't you just leave! For years, she believed she had planted the seed in his mind to divorce, and blamed herself, when in actuality it was a combination of multiple factors, which is often reason for the dissolution of many relationships.
Although they would only have three minutes, he wanted to re-establish their relationship. During their brief conversation, they were able to catch up on her new family, and she was able to tell her father about her marriage to Tom and the fact that she was pregnant. VOY : " Author, Author ". Chakotay was always a true mentor to Torres and was perhaps the only person on the ship who truly understood her nature.
