"Star Trek: Voyager: Body and Soul (#7.7)" (2000)
The Doctor: When I look at this, I don't see a mere cell. I see the potential for literature and art, empires and kingdoms!
Seven of Nine: Perhaps your visual subroutines are malfunctioning.

Harry Kim: [referring to the Doctor] I don't know if I can take three more days of chasing comets with him.
Seven of Nine: The time might pass more easily if we disable his vocal processor.

Harry Kim: We're prisoners on an alien ship, Voyager has no idea we're missing, and the Doctor's been decompiled!
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: The reports of my... decompilation have been greatly exaggerated.
Harry Kim: [stares at her] Doc?
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: Please state the nature of the medical emergency!

[the Doctor has been downloaded into Seven's matrix and taken control of her body]
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: I had no idea that eating was such a... sensual experience! The tastes, the textures, feeling it slide down Seven's esophagus, it's... it's exquisite!
Harry Kim: They're prison rations! My uniform probably tastes better.

Ranek: [pointing at a replicator] This device. What does it do?
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: That's a standard food replicator.
Ranek: Can it be used to create bio-weapons?
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: Not unless you count Mr. Neelix's Bolian soufflé.

The Doctor/Seven of Nine: [sniffing the air] I knew Seven's senses were more acute than the average humanoid, but... I had no idea...

The Doctor/Seven of Nine: [sniffing at Kim] It's you!
Harry Kim: It's been a busy day. I guess I'm perspiring a little.
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: A little?
[the Doctor sniffs his/Seven's wrist]
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: Seven's had a busy day, too, and she's come through it smelling like the proverbial rose.

[Ranek has made a pass at 'Seven', much to the Doctor's displeasure]
Ranek: I didn't mean to offend you. It's just, I've never met a woman like you before.
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: It's because there are no women like me!

Lt. Jaryn: Is something wrong?
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: Ranek summoned me to the bridge under the pretext of a little stargazing. What he really wanted was to use my face as a tongue depressor!

The Doctor/Seven of Nine: Never play 'hard to get' with a hologram.

The Doctor/Seven of Nine: You starship captains are all alike. You can stare down the barrel of a phaser cannon, but you can't stomach a simple medical exam.

[Seven has been separated from the Doctor, not happy with his behavior]
The Doctor: I was trying to get information. Sometimes a... a glass of wine can... loosen the tongue.
Seven of Nine: *One* glass. That doesn't excuse the other eight.

The Doctor: I'm afraid the role of 'spy' wasn't written into my program. I was forced to... improvise.
Seven of Nine: You "improvised" your way through an entire cheesecake, as well as three servings of Ktarian chocolate puffs. Now I have to suffer the consequences.

The Doctor: These last few days have been a revelation. Feeling your lungs fill with air, the surge of adrenaline through your veins. Until I spent a day in your skin, I never knew what I was missing.
Seven of Nine: You may have been better off not knowing.

Lt. Jaryn: I want you to know, I'm gonna tell my superiors everything you've done for us.
The Doctor/Seven of Nine: First Ranek and now you. I may become the first prisoner of war to be decorated by his captors.

Seven of Nine: And the massage you got from Lieutenant Jaryn?
The Doctor: Entirely therapeutic!
Seven of Nine: You became sexually aroused in my body!

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: To shared experiences.
The Doctor: Hear, hear.

Harry Kim: [Harry and Seven have been taken prisoner, and Seven has just returned to the cell] Are you drunk?
Seven of Nine: It wasn't my fault. Seven's unique physiology is unique. It doesn't react well to synthehol.
Harry Kim: What happened?
Seven of Nine: Captain Ranek and I shared a meal aboard the Flyer. He's really a gentleman, once you get to know him.
Harry Kim: You had a dinner date in Seven's body?
Seven of Nine: It wasn't a date. It was a tactical maneuver designed to win the trust of our captors... and it worked!

"Star Trek: Voyager: Someone to Watch Over Me (#5.22)" (1999)
B'Elanna Torres: [reading Seven's study of her and Tom from a PADD] 'Stardate 52647, 1400 hours: Subjects quarrel in corridor outside female's quarters. Male returns with twelve flowering plant stems, species rosa rubifolia, effecting a cessation of hostilities. Stardate 52648, 0300 hours: Intimate relations resume.' - How the hell do you know when we're having intimate relations?
Seven of Nine: There is no one on deck nine, section twelve, who *doesn't* know when you're having intimate relations.

B'Elanna Torres: [angry that Seven has been studying her and Tom's relationship] I want all the data you've collected.
Seven of Nine: I haven't completed the study.
B'Elanna Torres: Then study this: Borg provokes Klingon. Klingon breaks Borg nose.
Neelix: B'Elanna!
B'Elanna Torres: [to Neelix] Call sickbay. Tell them there's about to be a medical emergency.

Seven of Nine: Your presence is required... or rather, it is requested - tonight, 1900 hours, holodeck two.
Lieutenant William Chapman: Another engineering simulation?
Seven of Nine: Dinner.
Lieutenant William Chapman: Dinner?
Seven of Nine: The consumption of nutritional biomatter.
Lieutenant William Chapman: No, I know what dinner is, I just... Are you... asking me to join you?
Seven of Nine: Yes. State your response.
Lieutenant William Chapman: OK. Yes.

The Doctor: I heard about the mess hall incident.
Seven of Nine: This crew can be very efficient at disseminating information, when they choose to be.
The Doctor: They say gossip travels faster than warp speed.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Have you ever considered trying it yourself? Romance, I mean.
Seven of Nine: I do not require a romantic relationship.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: So why'd you collect 30,000 gigaquads of data on the subject?

The Doctor: You're a woman, Seven.
Seven of Nine: Is that an observation or a diagnosis?

The Doctor: Perhaps you should consider... expanding your research to the realm of dating.
Seven of Nine: Dating? You mean procreation?
The Doctor: One step at a time. Dating is a human ritual, wherein two people share a social activity, get to know each other. In time, it can lead to a romantic involvement, and eventually, if all goes well, even marriage.
Seven of Nine: One step at a time.

The Doctor: The key to finding a compatible partner is learning how to share your interests and goals. We'll start with hobbies. What do you do with your spare time?
Seven of Nine: Regenerate.

Seven of Nine: [when struggling with the task of small talk] Perhaps there's something to be said for assimilation after all.

Seven of Nine: The Doctor asked me to pick a suitable candidate.
Harry Kim: For what?
Seven of Nine: Lesson 10 - The First Date.
Harry Kim: *Your* first date?
Seven of Nine: I've narrowed the list to two crewmen, based on work performance and compatible interests.
Harry Kim: I didn't know you *had* any interests.
Seven of Nine: Neither did I, but apparently they include astronomy, quantum mechanics and music.
Harry Kim: I play the clarinet, you know.
Seven of Nine: You are not one of the candidates, Ensign.
Harry Kim: Oh.

Tomin: Heeey. Why don't we go back to my quarters? I studied Human mating rituals.
Seven of Nine: Remove your hand or I will remove your arm!

[the Doctor is showing Seven a slide presentation about mating]
The Doctor: Here we see how Fortress Ovum is besieged by countless little warriors...
Seven of Nine: Doctor, I am familiar with the physiological processes of sexuality.

Seven of Nine: Lesson 6 - Beguiling Banter

Seven of Nine: Lesson 11 - Life of the Party

Seven of Nine: [proposing a toast] May cultural differences encourage us to build bridges of understanding. To all that makes us unique.

Seven of Nine: Lesson 22 - Thanks for the Memories

The Doctor: Tell me about your tastes, your likes and dislikes.
Seven of Nine: I dislike irrelevant conversations.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Tsunkatse (#6.15)" (2000)
[Paris observes Seven preparing several containers for an away mission]
Tom Paris: How long are you planning on being gone?
Seven of Nine: Approximately 48 hours.
Tom Paris: [laughs] Just like B'Elanna.
Seven of Nine: Clarify.
Tom Paris: Well, she overpacks, too.
Seven of Nine: I haven't overpacked. I simply wish to be prepared for any contingency.
Tom Paris: [holds up a piece of equipment] And... what contingency is this for?
Seven of Nine: That's an isomodulator, enhanced to correct hull ablation in the event we encounter a meteoroid stream.
Tom Paris: Couldn't you just replicate an isomodulator?
Seven of Nine: I prefer this one.
Tom Paris: Oh, I get it. You like to have your own things with you. B'Elanna's the same way. You know, she'd never admit it, but she still takes her stuffed animal with her whenever she's gonna be away for more than a day. 'Toby the Targ'.
Seven of Nine: Can Toby the Targ correct hull ablation? Your comparison is flawed.

Seven of Nine: Two hours, 37 minutes, thirteen seconds. That's how long we've gone without verbal communication.
Tuvok: Why is that remarkable?
Seven of Nine: The Doctor encourages me to engage in conversation during awkward silences.
Tuvok: Did you find the silence awkward?
Seven of Nine: No.
Tuvok: Nor did I.

The Doctor: I was wondering if you'd care to join me on a tour of Norcadia's cultural hotspots. I hear their museums are among the finest in this sector.
Seven of Nine: I'm busy.
The Doctor: With what?
Seven of Nine: Commander Tuvok and I are leaving to study a collapsing micro-nebula.
The Doctor: During shore leave? I thought we discussed this.
[he takes her luggage off her and puts it down]
The Doctor: Shore leave is a perfect opportunity for you to spend time with other members of the crew to develop your social skills.
Seven of Nine: Then I suppose I'll have to develop them with Commander Tuvok.
The Doctor: Vulcans aren't exactly known for their winning personalities.
Seven of Nine: You'd prefer I spend my time with more sociable individuals, such as yourself?
The Doctor: You could do worse.
Seven of Nine: In that case...
[she picks up her luggage again and dumps it into the Doctor's arms]
Seven of Nine: ...perhaps you'd care to join us?
The Doctor: To study the micro-nebula?
Seven of Nine: You can assist us with our analysis of veridium oxide particulates.
The Doctor: On second thought, you and Tuvok have a good time.
[hands Seven back her luggage]
Seven of Nine: I'll give the Commander your regrets.
[moves on]
The Doctor: [shouts after her] Er, do that. And if the nebula isn't as riveting as you'd hoped, try to remember lesson 36: Pleasant Parlor Games to Pass the Time!
The Doctor: [under his breath] You'll need it.

[Seven has to fight against the Pendari Champion]
Seven of Nine: I assure you, resistance is futile.
The Champion: So is all your talk.

Seven of Nine: The idea of killing someone for the entertainment of others is detestable.
Tuvok: Is the idea of losing your own life for the entertainment of others more palatable? As a drone, you took many lives.
Seven of Nine: I was acting as part of the Collective.
Tuvok: You're worried you won't have the strength to accomplish the task on your own?
Seven of Nine: I'm worried that I will.

Hirogen Hunter: With the proper training, you could become a champion.
Seven of Nine: Until our ship comes to rescue us, my only goal is to survive.
Hirogen Hunter: Do you know the difference between a survivor and a champion here? There isn't one.

[the Hirogen fighter has overpowered Seven in a sparring fight]
Seven of Nine: That was not one of the 33 sanctioned maneuvers.
Hirogen Hunter: There must be 34.
Seven of Nine: I was unprepared for your attack.
Hirogen Hunter: Is that what you're going to say to your opponent? Stop thinking like a drone! 'Sanctioned maneuvers, perfecting defenses'. You cannot assimilate Tsunkatse from a book! You must live it, feel it...
[he thrusts his hand toward her chest]
Hirogen Hunter: here.

[the Hirogen has completed Seven's training]
Hirogen Hunter: When your opponent enters the arena, what do you see?
Seven of Nine: My prey.
Hirogen Hunter: And what do you do to your prey?
Seven of Nine: Hunt it down and kill it.

The Champion: You're no bigger than a Tarkanian field mouse. Penk's insulting me by putting you in the Pit to face me.
Seven of Nine: I must warn you: I possess superior strength.
The Champion: I'm trembling.

Seven of Nine: We can still find another way out of this.
Hirogen Hunter: There is no other way.

[Seven and the Hirogen Hunter are being treated in sickbay after being rescued from Penk's ship]
Seven of Nine: Would you excuse us?
The Doctor: [with a wary glance at the Hirogen] Very well. But if you should need anything - an analgesic, a phaser rifle - don't hesitate to ask.

Hirogen Hunter: I've been wondering. Would you have killed me?
Seven of Nine: [after a pause] I don't know.
[the Hirogen smiles, knowingly]
Hirogen Hunter: Fortunately, you were right. There was another way out.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: I've spent the last three years struggling to regain my humanity. I'm afraid I may have lost it again in that arena.
Tuvok: You're experiencing difficult emotions.
Seven of Nine: Guilt... shame, remorse.
Tuvok: Then you haven't lost your humanity. You have reaffirmed it.

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Omega Directive (#4.21)" (1998)
[first lines]
Voyager Computer: 0600 hours. Regeneration cycle complete.
Seven of Nine: Daily log, Seven of Nine, Stardate 15781.2 - Today, Ensign Kim and I will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic of the aft sensor array. I have allocated 3 hours 20 minutes for the task, and an additional 17 minutes for Ensign Kim's usual conversational digressions. I am scheduled to take a nutritional supplement at 1500 hours, engage in one hour of cardiovascular activity. Then I intend to review a text the Doctor recommended, entitled 'A Christmas Carol'. He believes it will have educational value. End log.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: If someone out there is experimenting with Omega, I'm under orders to stop them. Otherwise this entire quadrant would be at risk.
Seven of Nine: Those orders were the result of Starfleet's ignorance and fear. I can alleviate your ignorance. As for your fear...
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Sometimes fear should be respected, Seven.

Seven of Nine: Your Starfleet Directive is no longer relevant. I have found a way to control Omega.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I don't care if you can make it sing and dance. We're getting rid of it.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I didn't realize you had such a strong scientific curiosity.
Seven of Nine: Not curiosity. Desire.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Desire?
Seven of Nine: Omega is infinitely complex, yet harmonious. To the Borg, it represents perfection. I wish to understand that perfection.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: The Borg's Holy Grail.
Seven of Nine: Captain?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Never mind.

Seven of Nine: Particle 010 - the Borg designation for what you call Omega. Every drone is aware of its existence. We were instructed to assimilate it at all costs. It is... perfection. The molecules exist in a flawless state. Infinite parts functioning as one.
Chakotay: Like the Borg.
Seven of Nine: Precisely. I am no longer Borg; but I still need to understand that perfection. Without it, my existence will never be complete.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'm curious. When did the Borg discover Omega?
Seven of Nine: 229 years ago.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Assimilation?
Seven of Nine: Yes. Of thirteen different species.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Thirteen?
Seven of Nine: It began with Species 262. They were primitive, but their oral history referred to a powerful substance which could burn the sky. The Borg were intrigued. Which led them to Species 263. They, too, were primitive and believed it was a drop of blood from their creator.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Fascinating!
Seven of Nine: Yes, but irrelevant.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: What is it the Borg say? That Omega is perfect?
Seven of Nine: Yes.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Is that a theory or a belief?

Harry Kim: Is there anything you don't know?
Seven of Nine: I was Borg.
Harry Kim: "I was Borg!" That's what you always say, but what does it mean? You have the knowledge of 10,000 species in your head?
Seven of Nine: Not exactly. Each drone's experiences are processed by the Collective. Only useful information is retained.
Harry Kim: Still, that probably makes you the most intelligent human being alive.
Seven of Nine: Probably.
Harry Kim: So what do you need the rest of us for?
[Seven gives him a peculiar look]
Harry Kim: Forget I asked.

[Seven has given each member of her work team Borg designations]
Seven of Nine: Six of Ten, this is not your assignment.
Harry Kim: Please, stop calling me that.
Seven of Nine: You're compromising our productivity... I'm reassigning you to chamber maintenance. Your new designation is Two of Ten.
Harry Kim: [laughs] Wait a minute. You're demoting me? Since when do the Borg pull rank?
Seven of Nine: A Starfleet protocol I adapted. I find it most useful.
Harry Kim: I'm glad you're not the Captain.

[Seven has told Janeway about the Borg's first attempt to create an Omega molecule]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Tell me... how many Borg were sacrificed during this experiment?
Seven of Nine: 29 vessels, 600,000 drones, but that is irrelevant.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I wondered who was running my program. Master da Vinci doesn't like visitors after midnight.
Seven of Nine: He protested. I deactivated him.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: For 3.2 seconds, I saw perfection. When Omega stabilized, I felt a curious sensation. As I was watching it, it seemed to be watching me. - The Borg have assimilated many species, with mythologies to explain such moments of clarity. I've always dismissed them as trivial. Perhaps I was wrong.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: If I didn't know you better... I'd say you just had your first spiritual experience.

Seven of Nine: Which of them is the senior researcher?
The Doctor: This gentleman. Why do you ask?
Seven of Nine: He has knowledge I require.
The Doctor: He also happens to be barely conscious. Come back in an hour.
Seven of Nine: Unacceptable.
The Doctor: Unavoidable. This is my sickbay. The man needs to recover.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Hope and Fear (#4.26)" (1998)
Arturis: Are you Borg?
Seven of Nine: Yes.
Arturis: You're much more attractive than the average drone.

Capt. Kathryn Janeway: [referring to Arturis] Have you encountered his people before?
Seven of Nine: Species 116.
Arturis: Is *that* what you call us?
Seven of Nine: Yes. The Borg has never been able to assimilate them - not yet.

Seven of Nine: [after losing a match of velocity to Janeway] You are a frustrating opponent. During the final round, after you dropped your phaser, you did not even look at the disk, and yet you were able to acquire the target.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Intuition.
Seven of Nine: Intuition is a human fallacy, the belief that you can predict random events.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Oh, belief had nothing to do with it. At some level, conscious or otherwise, I was aware of several factors: the trajectory of the disk after I hit the wall, the sound it made on its return, and the shadow it cast on the hologrid.
Seven of Nine: Intriguing but implausible.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: I won, didn't I?

[the crew have checked out the "USS Dauntless" as suitable to get them home]
Harry Kim: So, what're we waiting for?
Seven of Nine: Your enthusiasm is premature. Voyager is a proven vessel. It would be reckless to abandon it so quickly.
Harry Kim: Come on, where's that Borg spirit? We'll adapt.
Seven of Nine: My 'Borg spirit' gives me an objectivity you lack.

Seven of Nine: [from her daily log] If we do return to sector 001, will I adapt to Human civilization - a single Borg among billions of individuals?

Seven of Nine: You were a member of the Maquis. Starfleet Command will no doubt hold you responsible for a multitude of crimes. You will find nothing on Earth but adversity.
B'Elanna Torres: Well, that's looking on the bright side. Let's put it this way: I'd rather face the music at home than spend the rest of my life in the Delta Quadrant.

[Janeway and Seven have been kidnapped by Arturis]
Chakotay: [aboard Voyager] If I know the Captain, she's already got a plan.
[on Arturis's ship, the Captain and Seven are held behind a force field]
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Any ideas?
Seven of Nine: Not presently.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: We'd better think of something. We come face to face with your former family in less than an hour, and that's one reunion I'd like to miss.

Capt. Kathryn Janeway: In case I never get a chance to say this - I realize that I've been hard on you at times. But it was never out of anger, or regret that I brought you on board. I'm your Captain. That means I can't always be your friend. Understand?
Seven of Nine: No. However, if we are assimilated, our thoughts will become one, and I'm sure I will understand perfectly.

Seven of Nine: You were correct, Captain. My desire to remain in the Delta Quadrant was based on fear. I am no longer Borg, but the prospect of becoming human is... unsettling. I don't know where I belong.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: You belong with us.

Arturis: You negotiated an agreement with the Borg Collective: safe passage through their space. And in return, you helped them defeat one of their enemies.
Seven of Nine: Species 8472.
Arturis: In your colorful language, yes, Species 8472. Did it ever occur to you that there were those of us in the Delta Quadrant with a vested interest in that war? Victory would have meant annihilation of the Borg; but you couldn't see beyond the bow of your own ship!
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: In my estimation, Species 8472 posed a greater threat than the Borg.
Arturis: Who are you to make that decision? A stranger to this quadrant!
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: There wasn't exactly time to take a poll. I had to act quickly.
Arturis: My people managed to elude the Borg for centuries - outwitting them, always one step ahead. But in recent years, the Borg began to weaken our defenses, they were closing in, and Species 8472 was our last hope to defeat them. You took that away from us! The outer colonies were the first to fall, 23 in a matter of hours. Our sentry vessels tossed aside, no defense against the storm. And by the time they surrounded our star system, hundreds of cubes... we had already surrendered to our own terror. A few of us managed to survive, ten, twenty thousand. I was fortunate, I escaped with a vessel, alone, but alive. I don't blame them. They were just drones, acting with their collective instinct. You! You had a choice!

Capt. Kathryn Janeway: We'd better think of something. We come face to face with your former family in less than an hour, and that's one reunion I'd like to miss. Unless, of course, you're looking forward to rejoining the Collective.
Seven of Nine: [hesitantly] I do not believe I am.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Not the ringing opposition I was hoping for, but I'll take it.

Seven of Nine: I am attempting to design another method of traveling at slipstream velocities without damaging Voyager.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: I thought that was impossible.
Seven of Nine: 'Impossible' is a word that humans use far too often. I wish to continue my efforts.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Few days ago, you were ready to abandon ship, and here you are, practically laying in a course to Earth.
Seven of Nine: As we approached Borg space, I began to re-evaluate my future. The prospect of becoming a drone... was unappealing.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Sometimes you've got to look back in order to move forward. Sounds to me like you're starting to embrace your humanity.
Seven of Nine: No. But as I said - nothing is impossible.

Seven of Nine: [Janeway has beaten Seven at Velocity, who's not happy] I have superior coordination and stamina. I should have won every round.

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Raven (#4.6)" (1997)
[first lines]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: It's not as difficult as it looks. The first rule is: don't be afraid of the clay.
Seven of Nine: I fear nothing.

Seven of Nine: Borg do not sit.

Tuvok: Why have you left Voyager?
Seven of Nine: I am Borg.
Tuvok: You were Borg. But you're human now. You're part of our crew.
Seven of Nine: For a brief time I was human. But I have come to realize that I am Borg. I will always be Borg.

Seven of Nine: This was our ship! We lived here. We lived here for a long time. My father did experiments. They were very important, and we had to... travel a long way... I had my birthday here. My cake had six candles on it and... and one more to grow on... And then the men came. Papa tried to fight them, but they were too strong. I tried to hide. Maybe they wouldn't find me because I was little. But they did. And then Papa said we were going to crash and... the big man picked me up. And then suddenly we weren't on this ship anymore, we were somewhere else... And then I became Borg.

Seven of Nine: [to Tuvok] No... I will not assimilate you. Once I have returned to the Collective, you will go back to Voyager, and tell Captain Janeway what's happened to me. Thank her for her patience. For her kindness.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: It's a way of exploring aspects of yourself... that probably didn't fit into your life as a Borg - imagination, creativity, fantasy.
Seven of Nine: I am uncertain why these things are necessary.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Well, they aren't necessary, Seven. But they're an important part of one's life. Because imagination frees the mind. It inspires ideas and solutions and... it can provide a great deal of pleasure. Human progress - the human mind itself couldn't exist without them.

Seven of Nine: Pleasure is irrelevant.

Seven of Nine: Preparation is irrelevant.

Seven of Nine: Oral consumption is inefficient.
The Doctor: And unnecessary, if you're lucky enough to be a hologram.

Seven of Nine: I experience... a series of disjointed images in my mind.
The Doctor: Can you be more specific? Were these... hallucinations?
Seven of Nine: I don't know, I've never hallucinated.

The Doctor: [to Seven] You could be experiencing some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: It makes sense. You were assimilated by the Borg. You've gone through an intense, prolonged trauma.
Seven of Nine: I was not traumatized, I was raised by the Borg. I don't see them as threatening. Why would I experience fear?

Seven of Nine: [of the Da Vinci program] I've been thinking about what you said. That this was a place to encourage your imagination.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Is that appealing to you?
Seven of Nine: I'm not certain. I find myself... constructing scenarios, considering alternative possibilities. What if my parents and I had not encountered the Borg? What would our lives have been? I would have been raised by them, learned from them. They would have influenced what I became, who and what I am.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And you... would have done the same for them.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Human Error (#7.18)" (2001)
[in a holo-simulation, Chakotay is trying to uncork a bottle]
Holographic Chakotay: Give me a hand with this?
Seven of Nine: I'm surprised your Starfleet training didn't include cork extraction.
Holographic Chakotay: I must've been sick that day.
[they each make another unsuccessful attempt]
Holographic Chakotay: Looks like wine's off the menu.
Seven of Nine: Unless you brought a phaser?
Holographic Chakotay: Never on the first date.

The Doctor: [singing] Rock-a-bye baby, in the spacedock / When the core blows, the shuttle will rock / When the hull breaks, the shuttle will fall / And down will come baby, shuttle and all.
Seven of Nine: Are you trying to soothe the infant or traumatize her?

Seven of Nine: [in a holo-simulation] To the newest member of our crew. May all her desires be fulfilled except for one, so she'll always have something to strive for.

Seven of Nine: [in her holo-simulation] Since I arrived on Voyager, your guidance has been invaluable. Thank you, Captain.
Holographic Captain Janeway: All I did was chart the course. You're the one who made the journey.

[in Seven's holo-simulation, Chakotay is cutting vegetables]
Seven of Nine: Your technique is flawed.
Holographic Chakotay: Sorry, I'm a replicator man.

Seven of Nine: You have an appealing coiffure. What is your grooming regimen?
B'Elanna Torres: [baffled] You're asking me what I do with my hair?
Seven of Nine: Yes.
B'Elanna Torres: Um... well, nothing too elaborate. Sonic shower, a little engine grease... Thinking about a new look?
Seven of Nine: Perhaps. I'll keep you apprised if you'd like.
B'Elanna Torres: [bewildered] Please do.
[Seven leaves]
B'Elanna Torres: Was that Seven of Nine?
Harry Kim: There must be an alien intruder on board.

The Doctor: Mind if I ask what you're working on?
Seven of Nine: It's complicated.
The Doctor: How do you mean?
Seven of Nine: My personal life is none of your concern.
The Doctor: I wasn't aware you *had* a personal life.

Icheb: The Doctor sent me to relieve you early. He wants you to spend more time regenerating.
Seven of Nine: I see he's enlisted an ally.
Icheb: Don't kill the messenger. - It's Sophocles, Oedipus Rex.

Seven of Nine: I was negligent in my duties. As a result, Voyager was nearly destroyed. I was hoping you could provide a quotation, to help alleviate my guilt.
Icheb: I-I can't think of one. But I'd be happy to search the database.

[Seven intends to break up with holographic Chakotay]
Holographic Chakotay: You're making a mistake.
Seven of Nine: No, I'm trying to correct one.

Holographic Chakotay: Every time you move closer to your emotions, you back away, like hiding behind that metronome.
Seven of Nine: Your analogy is flawed.
Holographic Chakotay: Is it? I think you're afraid that embracing your humanity will make you weak, less than perfect. But think about what you stand to gain.
Seven of Nine: It's irrelevant.
Holographic Chakotay: No, it's not. Real intimacy with another person? Nothing's more relevant.

[after collapsing during her holo-program, Seven wakes up in sickbay]
Seven of Nine: Commander?
The Doctor: If you're looking for your other holographic friend, he's offline at the moment.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Dark Frontier: Part 2 (#5.16)" (1999)
Borg Queen: We are Borg.
Seven of Nine: I am an individual!
Borg Queen: You're only repeating their words. You sound like a mindless automaton.

Borg Queen: You've changed. Your exo-plating, your ocular implant. They've taken you apart; and they've recreated you in their own image. Hair, garments. But at the core, you are still mine.
Seven of Nine: The Borg have changed as well. I expected re-assimilation, not conversation.
Borg Queen: I see they've also given you a sense of humor.
Seven of Nine: My humor is my own.
Borg Queen: Spoken like a true individual.

Seven of Nine: I am Annika Hansen, Human.
Borg Queen: I remember Annika. Does she remember us? She wasn't afraid. Why are you?

Borg Queen: We don't want another drone. We want you.
Seven of Nine: I will resist.
Borg Queen: I know.

Borg Queen: Stop resisting. Take pleasure in this.
Seven of Nine: I will not take pleasure in the destruction of a race!
Borg Queen: Human sentiment. Compassion, guilt, empathy - they're irrelevant.
Seven of Nine: Not to me.
Borg Queen: "Me"? There is no 'me'. There is only 'us'. One mind.
Seven of Nine: My thoughts are my own.

Borg Queen, Seven of Nine: [respectively] Our thoughts are one.

Seven of Nine: You attacked us. You murdered my family!
Borg Queen: We did no such thing. We gave them perfection.
[one Borg steps forward into the light]
Seven of Nine: [aghast] Papa...?

Borg Queen: Congratulations.
Seven of Nine: Regarding?
Borg Queen: Assimilation is complete.
Seven of Nine: 300,000 individuals have been transformed into drones. Should they be congratulated as well?
Borg Queen: They should be. They've left behind their trivial, selfish lives, and they've been reborn with a greater purpose. We've delivered them from chaos into order.
Seven of Nine: Comforting words. Use them next time instead of "Resistance is futile". You may elicit a few volunteers.

Seven of Nine: The Borg believed I was unique, that I understood Humanity. They were obviously mistaken.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: How so?
Seven of Nine: I've betrayed the crew of Voyager, threatened you with assimilation. I did not expect you to return for me.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Looks like you still have a few things to learn.

Annika Hansen: Are we gonna be a-simulated?

Annika Hansen: Will it hurt to be a drone?

"Star Trek: Voyager: Child's Play (#6.19)" (2000)
[first lines]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Why potatoes?
Seven of Nine: Their first idea was to clone Naomi. But I suggested they start with something smaller.
[on Rebi's and Azan's science project]

[Mezoti has created a cube-shaped terrarium with a Teirenian ant colony]
Mezoti: The drones produce a fluorescent enzyme that's activated by the queen.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: "Drones and queens"? I thought we were trying to get these children away from the Borg.
Seven of Nine: The project was Mezoti's idea. I didn't want to discourage her individuality.
Mezoti: I like bugs.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Well done. Let me know before you take up bee-keeping.

[Icheb's family has been found]
Seven of Nine: It won't be easy for him to accept. He's adapted to life on Voyager.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And you've adapted to having him here.
Seven of Nine: My feelings are irrelevant.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Are they?

Seven of Nine: Anyone who values their own goals over the safety of their children is irresponsible!
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Are we talking about Icheb's parents, or yours?
Seven of Nine: Both.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: ...It's not like you to admit to something like that.
Seven of Nine: It would be naive for me to claim objectivity in this case. But I'm not prepared to return Icheb to parents who may be as careless as my own.

Seven of Nine: I know what you're thinking, that I'm having emotional difficulty accepting my separation from Icheb. And you're correct. But if there's a possibility he's in danger, even a remote one, I have to do whatever I can to protect him. If I don't, I'll be no better than my own parents.

Mezoti: If you find my parents, will I have to go with them?
Seven of Nine: We'll discuss that when and if the time comes.
Mezoti: I hope you don't find them.

The Borg: We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps not.

[Icheb has defended his parents' plan to use him as a weapon against the Borg]
Seven of Nine: I know how difficult it is to acknowledge your parents' faults. But what they did was wrong. You don't have to forgive them.
Icheb: Do you think they will ever forgive me?
Seven of Nine: For what?
Icheb: I could have destroyed that sphere. I failed them.
Seven of Nine: You would have been reassimilated.
Icheb: I know, but...
Seven of Nine: But what?
Icheb: Maybe it was my destiny.
Seven of Nine: Maybe. In the future, you may choose to fight the Borg; but you'll do it in your own way. You're an individual, and you have the right to determine your own destiny.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: It's time to regenerate.
Icheb: And if I prefer to continue studying?
[Seven pauses for a moment]
Seven of Nine: It's your decision.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: [after several warnings] Wait for me in my ready room.
Seven of Nine: Captain...
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [growled] Now.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Your attitude is making a difficult situation worse.
Seven of Nine: I was simply attempting to insure Icheb's well-being.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: By insulting his parents?
Seven of Nine: Those issues needed to be discussed.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You could have done it with a little more tact.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Mortal Coil (#4.12)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: You are a peculiar creature, Neelix.
Neelix: Thanks. I think.

Seven of Nine: [during Neelix's Vision Quest] You will be assimilated.
Neelix: No time for that now. Maybe later.

Seven of Nine: The Borg encountered a Kazon colony in the Gand Sector, grid 6920.
Neelix: Were they assimilated?
Seven of Nine: Their biological and technological distinctiveness was unremarkable. They were unworthy of assimilation.
Neelix: I didn't realize the Borg were so discriminating.
Seven of Nine: Why assimilate a species that would detract from perfection?

Seven of Nine: These nutritional supplements are unacceptable.
Neelix: What's wrong?
Seven of Nine: They are pungent.
Neelix: That's the whole idea. I've been adding Talaxian spices to broaden your palate.
Seven of Nine: My palate is sufficiently broad.

[the Doctor and Ensign Wildman are talking about Naomi's rapid growth]
Seven of Nine: Children assimilated by the Borg are placed in maturation chambers for seventeen cycles.
Ensign Samantha Wildman: [after an awkward moment] Interesting... Well, if you'll excuse me, I need to go talk to Neelix.
[walks away]
The Doctor: In these maturation chambers, the development of conversational skills is, I suppose, a low priority?

Seven of Nine: Human attitudes toward death are perplexing.
Tuvok: How so?
Seven of Nine: Too much importance is placed on it. There seem to be countless rituals and cultural beliefs designed to alleviate their fear of a simple biological truth: all organisms eventually perish.
Tuvok: I take it the Borg have no fear of that biological truth?
Seven of Nine: None. When a drone is damaged beyond repair, it is discarded. But its memories continue to exist in the collective consciousness. To use a human term, the Borg are immortal.
Tuvok: You are no longer part of the Collective. You are mortal now like the rest of us. Does that disturb you?
Seven of Nine: My connection to the Borg has been severed. But the Collective still possesses my recollections, my experiences. In a sense, I will always exist.
Tuvok: Fascinating. That must be a great relief.
Seven of Nine: [reflective] Yes. It is.

Neelix: I don't really like the idea of Borg technology swimming around inside me.
Seven of Nine: That is irrelevant. You need the nanoprobes to live.
Neelix: Live? Oh, is that what I am doing right now, living? I'm beginning to wonder.
Seven of Nine: By most definitions, you are alive.
Neelix: Well, part of me isn't alive.
Seven of Nine: Which part are you referring to?
Neelix: I don't know. But something is missing. I don't feel like Neelix anymore. Maybe Neelix is gone. Maybe he died, and I'm all that's left.

Neelix: I didn't ask to be brought back!
Seven of Nine: You were dead at the time.
Neelix: Well, what right did you have to violate me? You Borg think you can fix anything, but you didn't fix me!

Neelix: Seven, I think you've made a wonderful addition to this crew. I know it's been difficult for you making the transition from Borg back to human, or half-human... or whatever it is you become. Actually you're... just plain Seven to me.
Seven of Nine: Your point, Mr. Neelix.
Neelix: I guess I just want to say... you're surrounded by people who care about you. And whether you know it or not, Voyager is going to be a very good home to you. It certainly was to me.
Seven of Nine: Was? Do you intend to leave?
Neelix: Leave? No. I'll be around. Well... goodbye.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: [at a party] Having fun?
Seven of Nine: No.

Seven of Nine: [referring to Neelix] The cadaver has been sufficiently prepared.
The Doctor: And they say I have a lousy bedside manner.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Imperfection (#7.2)" (2000)
Icheb: [over comm] Icheb to the Doctor. Report to cargo bay 2 immediately.
Seven of Nine: He's persistent.
The Doctor: Not to worry. I'll make it clear to him that 'persistence is futile'.

[Seven has to stay in sickbay, suffering from a potentially lethal malfunction]
The Doctor: Is there anything I can bring from the cargo bay to make you feel more... at home?
Seven of Nine: No. Thank you.
The Doctor: Something from the mess hall? A piece of fruit?
Seven of Nine: Are you offering me my last meal?
The Doctor: I... O-of course not. Is that what you thought?
Seven of Nine: I was attempting to lighten the mood.
The Doctor: [chuckles] Ah, yes! Well done.

Seven of Nine: The Borg have no concept of an afterlife. However, when a drone is deactivated, its memories continue to reside in the Collective's consciousness. As long as the hive exists, so will a part of that drone.
B'Elanna Torres: You don't seem to take much comfort in that.
Seven of Nine: My link to the Collective has been severed for nearly four years. If I die, everything that I've accomplished in that time, everything I achieved as an individual, will be lost. My memories, my experiences - it will be as if they n... as if *I* never existed.
B'Elanna Torres: [after a pause] I think... you're a little more memorable than you're giving yourself credit for. You don't need the Collective to validate your existence. You've made an impact on every member of this crew. *That's* your legacy.

Neelix: Delivery for Seven of Nine. Tarcanian wildflowers. Cheery, don't you think?
[Seven, working at a console, doesn't acknowledge]
Neelix: Uh... or if you prefer gladiolas, I could go back to the airponics bay.
The Doctor: [taking the flower vase and putting it on the console] That won't be necessary, Mr. Neelix, the flowers are lovely. Aren't they, Seven?
Seven of Nine: Thank you. I'll admire them later.

The Doctor: Seven prefers not to have visitors right now.
Neelix: Not even a visitor with a kadis-kot board?
Seven of Nine: Correct.
Neelix: But it's your favorite game.
The Doctor: [taking Neelix aside] Personally, I can't blame her. You're being extremely insensitive.
Neelix: I am?
The Doctor: You know perfectly well Seven is in a weakened state. She wouldn't stand a chance against you.
Neelix: You're right, I... I don't know what I was thinking.
Neelix: [to Seven] We'll play later when you're feeling up to it.
[turns to leave]
Seven of Nine: Green.
Neelix: I beg your pardon?
Seven of Nine: I prefer the green pieces; you'll use red.

Seven of Nine: You refuse to acknowledge the severity of my condition - just as I did at first.
Captain Janeway: Are you giving up?
Seven of Nine: I'm merely accepting reality.
Captain Janeway: If I'd accepted reality six years ago, I'd have settled on the first M-class planet we came across. Instead, I'm 30,000 light years closer to Bloomington, Indiana.
Seven of Nine: Minus several members of your crew.

Seven of Nine: Every person on this list died under your command. You accepted their deaths. But I don't believe you'll accept mine.
Captain Janeway: That's presumptuous.
Seven of Nine: I'm not being egotistical. On the contrary, I'm trying to make a point.
Captain Janeway: Which is?
Seven of Nine: All of these crew members came to Voyager with unique personalities. But I've required your constant assistance to develop my individuality.
Captain Janeway: And you've come a long way.
Seven of Nine: But not far enough. I've disappointed you. You feel your task is incomplete. That's why my death will be difficult for you to accept.
Captain Janeway: Is that what you think? That you haven't lived up to my expectations?
Seven of Nine: Clearly I haven't. But I want you to know... that the failure has been mine, not yours.
Captain Janeway: You haven't failed, Seven. You've exceeded my expectations. You've become an individual, an extraordinary individual. If I'm having trouble accepting your condition, it's only because I don't want to lose a friend.

Icheb: I'm trying to save your life.
Seven of Nine: Only because you've grown too dependent on me.
Icheb: So you think I need to learn to rely on other people?
Seven of Nine: Yes.
Icheb: What about you? You've refused to rely on a single member of this crew. You hid your condition from the rest of us, you deactivated the Doctor, and now you're rejecting my help. You're the one who needs to rely on others.

Seven of Nine: This debate is pointless. I won't accept the node.
Icheb: And I won't keep it.
The Doctor: Someone had better use the damn thing. If it stays disconnected much longer, it won't do either of you any good!

Icheb: [to Seven] If the Captain were dying, you'd risk your life to save her, wouldn't you?
Icheb: [to Janeway] And when you respond to a distress call, you're risking the life of everyone on this ship, to respond to the aid of strangers.
Captain Janeway: He's right.
Seven of Nine: Captain, he's just a child!
Captain Janeway: I don't think he is. Not anymore.
Seven of Nine: Doctor!
The Doctor: Don't look at me.
Icheb: Please - just let us help you.

[Icheb notices another tear trickling down Seven's cheek]
Icheb: Seven...

The Doctor: Actually, it's functioning perfectly.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Drone (#5.2)" (1998)
[first lines]
The Doctor: Seven of Nine! How's my favorite Borg today?
Seven of Nine: Annoyed.

Seven of Nine: You have exceeded expectations.
One: Then expectations were insufficient.

Chakotay: Good morning.
Seven of Nine: That remains to be seen.

One: We are Borg. State our designation.
Seven of Nine: Designation is irrelevant. You are not part of the Collective. You are an individual. You'll receive your instructions from me.
One: Insufficient.
Seven of Nine: You must comply.
One: Insufficient. We are Borg.
Seven of Nine: My designation is Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One. But you may call me Seven of Nine.
One: Seven of Nine.
Seven of Nine: You will comply with my commands.
One: Seven of Nine.
Seven of Nine: Yes. We are not Borg. We are individuals. Do you understand?
One: State our designation.
Tuvok: Apparently not.

[Janeway asks Seven to be the new drone's teacher]
Seven of Nine: [incredulous] *I* am to instruct the drone in the ways of humanity?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Think of it as first contact - and you are our ambassador.

[Seven is showing One around Engineering]
B'Elanna Torres: This isn't a classroom, Seven.
Seven of Nine: Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres, Chief Engineer, Klingon-Human hybrid. She possesses extensive knowledge of this vessel's systems, as well as a volatile temperament.
One: Volatile - English adjective, meaning readily vaporizable at low temperature. Easily aroused. Tending to violent eruption.
B'Elanna Torres: Very good. You get a gold star.

[Voyager is threatened by a Borg vessel]
One: I must interface with the Collective. I can disrupt their vessel from within.
Seven of Nine: They will try to assimilate you.
One: They will fail.

One: The Collective is calling to me.
Seven of Nine: I hear it too. Billions of voices speaking as one... We must resist that voice.

One: What will happen now?
Seven of Nine: We will engage the Borg.
One: Will Voyager be destroyed?
Seven of Nine: The Borg are powerful. But Captain Janeway is a resourceful leader. We will resist.
One: Resistance is futile.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps.

One: Seven of Nine. Do you wish to rejoin the Collective?
Seven of Nine: Voyager is my Collective.

[One has suffered life-threatening injuries]
One: [to Seven] I was never meant to be. As long as I exist, you are in danger. All life on Voyager is in danger.
The Doctor: We can talk about this later.
[proceeds to give an injection but is prevented by One's personal force field]
Seven of Nine: Allow the Doctor to proceed... Lower the force field!
The Doctor: His synapses are failing.
Seven of Nine: You must comply.
One: I will not!
Seven of Nine: You must comply! Please. You are hurting me.
One: You will adapt.

"Star Trek: Voyager: One Small Step (#6.8)" (1999)
The Doctor: [about his first away mission] I left my footprints in the magnesite dust, and thought: "One small step for a hologram, one giant leap for mankind."
Seven of Nine: To coin a phrase.

[Seven is attempting to make improvements to the computer core, which however affect secondary systems on the ship]
Seven of Nine: I've explained the value of these enhancements on several occasions, but Lieutenant Torres chose to ignore me. I thought a demonstration would be more persuasive.
Chakotay: Well, I doubt this one's going to change her mind.
Seven of Nine: Clearly, Voyager is not yet ready for assimilation.
[Chakotay gives her a funny look]
Seven of Nine: A joke. The Doctor suggested that I defuse tense situations with humor.

[Seven, Chakotay and Paris are trapped inside an anomaly while searching for a ship of 300 years old]
Chakotay: I made a mistake. I put the mission at risk.
Seven of Nine: You put our lives at risk!
Chakotay: Well, if we don't make it out, someone's bound to come looking for us in a few hundred years.
[Seven gives him a funny look]
Chakotay: Defusing a tense situation with humor. Remember?

Chakotay: Do you remember what you wanted to be before you were assimilated?
Seven of Nine: I was assimilated when I was a child.
Chakotay: I knew I wanted to be a paleontologist when I was six.
Seven of Nine: [hesitates, then sighs] A ballerina.
Chakotay: [smiles] Maybe it's not too late.
Seven of Nine: It was a juvenile fantasy.
Chakotay: Those are the ones that stick with you.

Chakotay: This anomaly is as old as anything we've ever encountered. I could spend a lifetime studying the things it's collected.
Seven of Nine: And leave Voyager without a first officer.
Chakotay: They'd manage.

Seven of Nine: Searching for the command module seems more sentimental than scientific.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Well, I can't argue with that. If scientific knowledge was all we were after, then the Federation would have built a fleet of probes, not starships. Exploration is about seeing things with your own eyes. In this case, we're exploring the past.
Seven of Nine: How will retrieving this artifact enhance your appreciation of history?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: By making us part of it. In the same way that excavating the obelisks of ancient Vulcan or finding the Shroud of Kahless made those explorers part of their history.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: As a Borg, you didn't study the past - you ingested it. You've never really developed an appreciation for Humanity's history. Maybe this is an opportunity for you to do some exploring of your own.
Seven of Nine: Are you ordering me to join this mission?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Let's just say, I'm encouraging you to volunteer.

Chakotay: Remember, when you set foot in that module, you'll be stepping into history.
Seven of Nine: History is irrelevant.
Chakotay: Irrelevant? Do me a favor - when you're over there, download whatever you can from their database. And also, take a minute to look around, so you can tell us what it was like.
Seven of Nine: There may not be time... But I'll try.

Seven of Nine: [in the module] There's an active data file. It appears to contain log entries.
Chakotay: [badly injured, in the Delta Flyer] Can you play them for us?
Seven of Nine: I believe so.
Chakotay: Consider it my last request.

Seven of Nine: I did not know this individual. Had I encountered him while I was a Borg, I would have found his technology unworthy of assimilation. But we are more alike than one might think. In a sense, his desire to explore was not unlike a quest for perfection. His contribution helped secure Humanity's future, and in some ways, my own.
[she places her hand on Kelly's coffin]
Seven of Nine: [whispers] The Yankees. In six games.

"Star Trek: Voyager: One (#4.25)" (1998)
[the Doctor is trying unsuccessfully to teach Seven manners in social activities]
Seven of Nine: I believe I am overdue for my weekly medical maintenance. We should go.
The Doctor: Seven, you've never volunteered for a check-up before.
Seven of Nine: It is preferable to remaining here.

Seven of Nine: Holodecks are a pointless endeavor, fulfilling some human need to fantasize. I have no such need.
The Doctor: What you need is some editorial skill in your self-expression. Between impulse and action, there is a realm of good taste begging for your acquaintance.

Borg Drone: Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01. You have left the Collective. It was a foolish decision. Now you are alone. You have lost the many. You are only one. You've become human, weak, pathetic. - Humans do not have our strength. They are imperfect. Now you are imperfect as well.
Seven of Nine: No.
Borg Drone: You will not survive. You cannot survive without the Collective.
Seven of Nine: I will adapt.
Borg Drone: By becoming weaker, less perfect.
Seven of Nine: I will adapt as an individual.
Borg Drone: One. One alone. A Borg cannot be one.
Seven of Nine: I will become stronger.
Borg Drone: A Borg cannot be one. She will die as one.

The Doctor: Seven? Are you... frightened?
Seven of Nine: I am Borg.

The Doctor: [when finding Paris outside his stasis unit] Leave it to Mr. Paris to be just as much trouble now as when he's awake.
Seven of Nine: You knew this might happen; why complain about it?
The Doctor: If you had even the slightest sense of humor, you'd realize I was making a small joke.
Seven of Nine: Very small.

The Doctor: If the mobile emitter goes offline while I'm out of sickbay, my program may be irretrievable.
Seven of Nine: Don't panic. It's counterproductive.
The Doctor: That's easy for you to say; you're not facing cybernetic oblivion!

Seven of Nine: I am Seven of Nine. I am alone. But I will adapt. I will...

Captain Kathryn Janeway: [referring to the Doctor] He tells us you've had quite an adventure.
Seven of Nine: It was... interesting.

[last lines]
Tom Paris: Just think - we could have died in those coffins.
Seven of Nine: I suspect you would have found a way out before that, Lieutenant.
Harry Kim: What do you mean?
Seven of Nine: Lieutenant Paris refused to stay confined. On four separate occasions, the Doctor and I had to put him back into his stasis unit.
Harry Kim: Were you, um... locked in dark closets or something as a child?
Tom Paris: I just don't like closed places. I never have, I-I don't know why.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps you dislike being alone.

The Doctor: You've been getting more irritable and short-tempered with each passing day.
Seven of Nine: So have you.
The Doctor: Only because I'm having to put up with you!

"Star Trek: Voyager: Bliss (#5.14)" (1999)
Tom Paris: Speaking of late, I'll make a deal with you: I'll explain to Sam why her daughter's two hours late for bedtime, if you start on the survey report.
Seven of Nine: Acceptable.
Tom Paris: Have fun.

Seven of Nine: [looking at the viewscreen] A wormhole.
Ensign Harry Kim: *The* wormhole. It leads all the way back to Earth.
Seven of Nine: The odds of finding such a phenomenon are infinitesimal.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Never bet against the house.

Seven of Nine: The Doctor often instructs me to "look before I leap". It is an antiquated adage, but I believe it is relevant.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I have another one for you: "He who hesitates is lost."

Naomi Wildman: I can help. My mom says, two heads are better than one. Isn't that the Borg philosophy too?
Seven of Nine: Simplistic, but accurate.

The Doctor: Any living organism, no matter how large, will attempt to expel a foreign body. If we could just make Voyager a little less tasty...
Seven of Nine: [to Qatai] My scans indicate that your weapons are tetryon-based. If you were to fire one at a pocket of antimatter released from our warp core, it would produce an electrolytic reaction.
Naomi Wildman: Would that make Voyager taste bad?

Neelix: Annika! Annika Hansen!
Seven of Nine: There is no one here by that name.

Seven of Nine: I assure you, we are not a deception.
Qatai: Oh, how convenient! An enormous starship comes to my rescue.
Qatai: [to the creature] Ya might try a more subtle approach!
Seven of Nine: My scans indicate that your shields will fail in approximately fifteen minutes. Join us; or you can remain on your vessel, secure in the knowledge that you were not deceived. But that knowledge will do you little good when you are dead.

[last lines]
[Seven and Naomi are looking at a picture of Earth]
Seven of Nine: Does studying this image increase your desire to go there?
Naomi Wildman: Not really.
Seven of Nine: I concur. It is unremarkable.
Naomi Wildman: But my mom likes it. And even Neelix can't wait to get there. So, I guess it can't be that bad.
Seven of Nine: Given this crew's determination to return home, I have no doubt we will see it for ourselves someday.

Seven of Nine: Computer, activate EMH.
Tom Paris: Please state the nature of the medical emergency.

Seven of Nine: [while in communication with an alien, Seven's console in Astrometrics goes dead] Computer, identify the cause of the power failure!
Tuvok: [from the doorway] Captain's orders.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Collective (#6.16)" (2000)
[Voyager encounters a Borg cube]
Seven of Nine: There should be thousands of drones manning the vessel. But I'm picking up only five signatures.
The Borg: We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
B'Elanna Torres: It doesn't sound like they've lost their confidence.

Seven of Nine: These drones have not fully matured. Where are the others?
The Borg: There are no others. The drones aboard this vessel were...
First: ...deactivated. We are the Borg.

Mezoti: We're a collective.
Seven of Nine: A collective of five on a vessel normally run by 5,000.

Seven of Nine: When I was first captured by the Borg, I was young and frightened. I watched my parents assimilated. Then I was placed in a maturation chamber, and the hive mind began to restructure my synaptic pathways, purge my individuality. When I emerged five years later, the turmoil of my forced assimilation had been replaced with order. You may not be aware of this, Captain, but that order continues to be a source of strength for me. I could not have regained my humanity without it.

Seven of Nine: Not all drones can be saved, Captain.

First: We're Borg. You've forgotten what that means.
Seven of Nine: The unity of the collective. Common goals. The quest for perfection. I have not forgotten. But you don't need to remain drones to experience those things.

[the Borg children have regained their individuality]
Icheb: [reading his assimilation profile] Icheb. My name was Icheb.
Seven of Nine: Your name *is* Icheb.

Mezoti: My designation is... Mezoti. It's a pretty name.
Seven of Nine: Yes, it is. And it's all yours.

[the First has been fatally injured]
Mezoti: [trying to reassure him] We'll find a new home. You'll see.
First: W-we are Borg.
Seven of Nine: Yes... we are Borg.
[the First shuts down]

"Star Trek: Voyager: Survival Instinct (#6.2)" (1999)
Four of Nine: We shouldn't be desecrating the body of this drone. It is against the will of Brothara.
Three of Nine: Who is Brothara?
Two of Nine: Brothara - a supernatural deity worshiped by Species 571.
Four of Nine: I am a member of Species 571.
Seven of Nine: You're being confused by irrelevant data. Ignore it.
Three of Nine: You said "*I* am a member of Species 571. Do you consider yourself an individual?
Seven of Nine: There are no individuals here. We are Borg.
Two of Nine: Agreed.
Three of Nine: Agreed.
Four of Nine: Agreed.

Marika Willkarah: I can't wait to use my real name again.
Seven of Nine: There is nothing preventing you from doing so.
Lansor: Except that most of the time, I don't know whether my name is Marika, P'Chan or Lansor. The names, the memories...
P'Chan: ...the memories, even the thoughts flow from one to the other.
Marika Willkarah: I can't love or hate, or laugh...
Marika Willkarah, Lansor: ...or cry without sharing it with them.

Seven of Nine: I do feel compelled to help them. But I am uncertain as to the correct course of action.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Let me ask you something. Do you think of these people... as family?
Seven of Nine: Is it relevant?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: There's an old saying: "Blood is thicker than water." It means that the ties of family run deeper than any other kind of relationship. We'll often do things for members of our family we'd never dream of doing for anyone else.

Seven of Nine: Naomi Wildman, do you consider me to be family?
Naomi Wildman: I... I don't... I mean... mm... Yes? Is... that okay?
Seven of Nine: I have no objection.

Chakotay: How long would they survive if the Doctor deactivated this interlink network you created?
Seven of Nine: A month at most.
Chakotay: A month as an individual or a lifetime as a drone... Which option would you choose?

Seven of Nine: Survival is insufficient.

Seven of Nine: I will not return them to the Borg.
The Doctor: Are you thinking of what's best for them? Or for you?
Seven of Nine: Clarify.
The Doctor: You said it yourself - you made a mistake. And Seven of Nine doesn't like to make mistakes. She strives for perfection. I want you to think about the motivation behind your decision. Are you doing what's right for those three people? Or are you trying to alleviate the guilt you feel over what happened eight years ago?
Seven of Nine: The damage I did can never be repaired; and my guilt is irrelevant. I simply want them to experience individuality, as I have. As *you* have. At one time, you were confined to this sickbay. Your program was limited to emergency medical protocols. In some ways, you were not unlike a drone. But you were granted the opportunity to explore your individuality. You were allowed to expand your program. Your mobile emitter gives you freedom of movement. Your thoughts are your own. If you were told you had to become a drone again, I believe you would resist.
The Doctor: [whispers] Yes. I suppose I would.
Seven of Nine: They would resist as well. They would choose freedom, no matter how fleeting. Only you and I can truly understand that.
The Doctor: [agrees] Survival *is* insufficient.

[last lines]
Naomi Wildman: I thought you might like some company.
Seven of Nine: Why?
Naomi Wildman: Because of... what happened with the drones.
Seven of Nine: I see that word travels quickly.
Naomi Wildman: It's a small ship... I thought, maybe you might want to spend some time with... family.

Marika Willkarah: It's nice to be on a Federation Starship again. I'd like to stay aboard Voyager.
Seven of Nine: The Captain said you may stay as long as you wish.
Marika Willkarah: You mean as long as I have.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Infinite Regress (#5.7)" (1998)
Captain Janeway: We haven't had the best of luck with the Borg.
Seven of Nine: Nor have I.

Seven of Nine: [catching Naomi, who has been following her, off-guard] Naomi Wildman, sub-unit of Ensign Samantha Wildman, state your intentions.
Naomi Wildman: [startled] I... I...
Seven of Nine: Very well, you leave me no choice but to report your activities to the Captain.
Naomi Wildman: Please don't. I was just... observing you.
Seven of Nine: Explain.
Naomi Wildman: Well, Neelix told me that the Borg do a lot of things they do because they're trying to be perfect. And even though you're not really a drone anymore, you still try to be perfect. Don't you?
Seven of Nine: Correct.
Naomi Wildman: Well, if I can learn to be perfect too, then Captain Janeway will have to make me her bridge assistant.
Seven of Nine: No such rank exists aboard this vessel.
Naomi Wildman: Not yet!

Seven of Nine: Voices... I hear voices...

The Doctor: Has any drone ever experienced symptoms like these before?
Seven of Nine: The Collective does not tolerate imperfection. Any drone with a malfunction as serious as mine would be destroyed immediately.
The Doctor: Lucky for you, this crew is a little more tolerant.

[Seven is experiencing another personality disorder]
Seven of Nine: Name your price. Captain...?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Janeway. And you are?
Seven of Nine: DaiMon Torrot.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You're Ferengi.
Seven of Nine: Of course I'm Ferengi! Is that some kind of insult about the size of my ears?

[Torres reacts warily when seeing Seven in Engineering]
Seven of Nine: Don't worry, Lieutenant; the son of K'Vok will not be joining us.
B'Elanna Torres: Glad to hear it. Does this qualify as our second date?
The Doctor: Just think of me as your chaperon.

Seven of Nine: When you took me from the Borg and began to turn me into an individual, I found the silence of my own mind difficult to bear. I missed the voices of the Collective. But now that I am an individual, those same voices... frighten me.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: I require your assistance.
Naomi Wildman: [amazed] Me?
Seven of Nine: I wish to participate in recreational activities.
Naomi Wildman: Great.
Seven of Nine: Kadis-kot. Instruct me how to play.
Naomi Wildman: I will comply.

The Doctor: It was hardly your fault. You're ill.
Seven of Nine: Irrelevant. I am Borg. I should be able to adapt.
The Doctor: Surprise. You aren't invincible. I suppose that's something we'll have to tackle in our next social lesson.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Scorpion: Part 2 (#4.1)" (1997)
[Tuvok suggests Voyager's torpedoes equipped with nano-probes to use against Species 8472]
Seven of Nine: Your torpedoes are inadequate. They lack the necessary range and dispersive force.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Do you have a better idea?
Seven of Nine: We are Borg.
Tuvok: [to Janeway] I take that as a yes.

Seven of Nine: Voyager's weapons inventory: Photon torpedo complement - 32, class 6 warhead. Explosive yield - 200 isotons.
Tuvok: How did you obtain this information?
Seven of Nine: We are Borg.
Tuvok: Naturally.

Chakotay: You're getting what you wanted. I suggest we part ways amicably.
Seven of Nine: There is another option. We could assimilate your vessel.
Chakotay: If a single drone steps one millimeter out of that cargo bay, I'll decompress the entire deck. You won't pose much of a threat floating in space.
Seven of Nine: When your Captain first approached us, we suspected that an agreement with Humans would prove impossible to maintain. You are erratic, conflicted, disorganized. Every decision is debated, every action questioned. Every individual entitled to their own small opinion. You lack harmony, cohesion, greatness. It will be your undoing.

Seven of Nine: [her first lines] I speak for the Borg.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: What's your designation?
Seven of Nine: Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One. But you may call me Seven of Nine.

[Seven of Nine urges Chakotay to turn Voyager around and meet with a Borg vessel]
Chakotay: Look, I'll honor the original agreement. But I'm not turning this ship around. It's too dangerous.
Seven of Nine: Denying our request is also dangerous.
Chakotay: I'll think about it.
Seven of Nine: Think quickly.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: You are asking me to give up my only guarantee that you won't assimilate us. I won't risk it.
Seven of Nine: Are you willing to risk a direct confrontation with us? If we transport 500 drones onto your vessel, do you believe you could offer sufficient resistance?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: We'd die trying.

Seven of Nine: [about Species 8472] Their technology is biogenically engineered. It is superior to that of all other species we have previously encountered -... - They're the apex of biological evolution.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Latent Image (#5.11)" (1999)
[the Doctor enters the bridge as Janeway is having a trivial discussion with the crew]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: If this is another house call, it'll have to wait. As you can see, I've got a mutiny on my hands.
The Doctor: A mutiny? I suppose that's better than a conspiracy.
Seven of Nine: Doctor?
The Doctor: Tell her, Captain. Describe how you tampered with my program, how it was you all along.
Tuvok: Perhaps you should accompany me to sickbay, Doctor.
The Doctor: Et tu, Tuvok?

Seven of Nine: I am having trouble with the nature of individuality.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [laughs] There's a time and a place for philosophical discussion. Two in the morning in my quarters isn't one of them.

[Janeway visits Seven in the cargo bay]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'm having trouble... with the nature of individuality.
Seven of Nine: You require a philosophical discussion?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: There's a time and a place for it. This is one of them.

[Janeway orders a coffee from the replicator and tastes it]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Lukewarm. Now, I've told that replicator a dozen times about the temperature of my coffee. It just doesn't seem to wanna listen. Almost as if it's got a mind of its own. But it doesn't. A replicator operates through a series of electronic pathways that allow it to receive instructions and take appropriate action. And there you go, a cup of coffee; a bowl of soup, a plasma conduit, whatever we tell it to do. As difficult as it is to accept, the Doctor is more like that replicator than he is like us.
Seven of Nine: He would disagree.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'm sure he would. But I can't let that change my decision.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: If one of my crew chose to put a phaser to his own head, should I let him?
Seven of Nine: It would depend on the situation.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: It always depends on the situation, Seven.

Seven of Nine: When you separated me from the Collective, I was an unknown risk to your crew. Yet you kept me on board. You allowed me to evolve into an individual.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You're a human being. He's a hologram.
Seven of Nine: And you allowed that hologram to evolve as well, to exceed his original programming. And yet, now you choose to abandon him.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Objection noted. Good night.
Seven of Nine: It is unsettling. You say that I am a human being, and yet I am also Borg - part of me not unlike your replicator. Not unlike the Doctor. Will you one day choose to abandon me as well? I have always looked to you as my example, my guide to humanity. Perhaps I've been mistaken.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: After I freed you from the Collective... you were transformed. It's been a difficult process. Was it worth it?
Seven of Nine: I had no choice.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: That's not what I asked you.
Seven of Nine: If I could change what happened, erase what you did to me, would I? No.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Relativity (#5.24)" (1999)
[Paris has asked Seven to partner with him in the ping-pong doubles tournament, which she declines]
Tom Paris: Too bad. Well, I guess I'll have to tell B'Elanna that you thought you couldn't beat her.
Seven of Nine: You're attempting to appeal to my vanity.
Tom Paris: Is it working?
Seven of Nine: I will consider your request.

Seven of Nine: [describing a causality loop] The Borg once traveled back in time to stop Zephram Cochrane from breaking the warp barrier. They succeeded, but that in turn led the Starship Enterprise to intervene. They assisted Cochrane with the flight the Borg were trying to prevent. Causal loop complete.
Lieutenant Ducane: So, in a way, the Federation owes its existence to the Borg.
Seven of Nine: You're welcome.

Seven of Nine: Captain, when you take me from the Borg, you're going to tell me that part of being human is learning to trust. Trust me - now.

The Doctor: Next time your human physiology fails you, don't consult the database; just call me.
Seven of Nine: You *are* the database.
The Doctor: With two legs and a splendid bedside manner.

Seven of Nine: [to Braxton] Captain, I believe your future self is suffering from temporal psychosis.
Future Captain Braxton: Well, of course I am, you pedantic drone!

Seven of Nine: Seven of Nine to Seven of Nine, what's your status?

[last lines]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [preparing to leave the future and return to their own time] See you in the 24th century.
Seven of Nine: I'll look forward to it - or should I say backward.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Don't get started.

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Gift (#4.2)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: Your attempts to assimilate this drone will fail. You can alter our physiology, but you cannot change our nature. We will betray you. We are Borg.

[Janeway shows Seven of Nine the picture of a little girl]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Do you remember her? Her name was Annika Hansen. She was born on Stardate 25479, at the Tendara Colony. There's still a lot we don't know about her. Did she have any siblings? Who were her friends? Where did she go to school? What was her favorite color?
Seven of Nine: Irrelevant! Take me back to the Borg!

Seven of Nine: You have imprisoned us in the name of humanity; yet you will not grant us your most cherished human right: to choose our own fate. You are hypocritical, manipulative. We do not want to be what you are! Return us to the Collective!
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You lost the capacity to make a rational choice the moment you were assimilated. They took that from you. And until I'm convinced you've gotten it back, I'm making the choice for you. You're staying here.
Seven of Nine: Then you are no different than the Borg.

Seven of Nine: We fully recall the engineering specifications of your vessel.
B'Elanna Torres: Good. Can you also recall the way it looked before you turned it into a Borg-circus?

Harry Kim: So what's it like out there, in Galactic Cluster III?
Seven of Nine: Beyond your comprehension.
Harry Kim: Try me.
Seven of Nine: Galactic Cluster III is a transmaterial energy plane intersecting twenty-two billion omnicordial life forms.
Harry Kim: Ah... Interesting.

Seven of Nine: My designation is Seven of Nine. But the others are gone. Designations are no longer relevant. I am... one.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: Red.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: What?
Seven of Nine: The child you spoke of, the girl. Her favorite color was red.

[the Doctor is doing a role play with Seven as an exercise for good manners]
The Doctor: I'll be the nurse, you'll be the doctor.
Seven of Nine: [sighs and reads] "Please hand me the hypospray."
The Doctor: "Of course, Doctor, immediately."
Seven of Nine: "Thank you. Looks at instrument..."
The Doctor: No no, don't read that part, only the dialogue.
Seven of Nine: "Excuse me, nurse, this is the wrong hypospray. Would you mind finding the correct one?"
The Doctor: "Not at all."
Seven of Nine: "Thank you. Did I mention you look lovely today?"
The Doctor: "Oh, Doctor, you're so charming!"
Seven of Nine: This lesson is terminated!

[Janeway tells Seven a story about a fight during a border conflict with the Cardassians]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: One night, during a break in the fighting, we could hear this low, moaning sound, coming from somewhere in the brush. We knew that none of our people were out there, so it had to be a wounded Cardassian. You have to understand, we've been killing each other for weeks on this planet. It was brutal. But our commanding officer decided... that we couldn't just sit there and listen to that poor man suffer. So he ordered me and an ensign to crawl out there and bring that Cardassian back to our camp. I thought he was crazy. He was risking our lives for someone who would have shot us without hesitation. But we did it. And the Cardassian lived. Three days later, we secured the outpost. It was a major victory; we were all decorated by Starfleet Command. But in retrospect, the thing I'm most proud of was the night we saved that man's life.
Seven of Nine: Explain.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: A single act of compassion can put you in touch with your own humanity.

[Janeway has asked Seven of Nine to create a singularity, which Seven refuses]
Seven of Nine: I have agreed to remain on Voyager; I have agreed to function as a member of your crew. But I will not be a willing participant in my own destruction or the destruction of this ship.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Objection noted. We'll do this without you.
Seven of Nine: You will fail.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And you have just crossed the line!

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: It is puzzling.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: What's that?
Seven of Nine: You made me into an individual. You encouraged me to stop thinking like a member of the Collective, to cultivate my independence and my humanity. But when I try to assert that independence, I am punished.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Individuality has its limits - especially on a starship where there's a command structure.
Seven of Nine: I believe that you are punishing me because I do not think the way that you do. Because I am not becoming more like you. You claim to respect my individuality. But in fact, you are frightened by it.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: As you were.

Seven of Nine: A lesson in compassion will do me little good if I am dead.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Revulsion (#4.5)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: The last time we worked together, I struck you at the base of your skull and attempted to contact the Collective.
Harry Kim: These things happen.
Seven of Nine: I assure you it will not happen again.
Harry Kim: That's good to know.

[Harry and Seven have to remove a Borg component]
Seven of Nine: I suggest a radical dislocation.
Harry Kim: A what?
Seven of Nine: We need to pull it out.
[Harry sniggers]
Seven of Nine: Assist me.
Harry Kim: Okay, on three.
Seven of Nine: Three?
Harry Kim: On the count of three, we pull together.
Seven of Nine: Crude, but effective.

Seven of Nine: All of these elaborate rituals of deception... I didn't realize becoming human again would be such a challenge. Sexuality is particularly complex. As Borg, we had no need for seduction, no time for single-cell fertilization. We saw a species we wanted and we assimilated it. Nevertheless, I am willing to explore my humanity. Take off your clothes.

Seven of Nine: I may be new to individuality, but I'm not ignorant of human behavior. I've noticed your attempts to engage me in idle conversation. And I see the way your pupils dilate when you look at my body.
Harry Kim: I don't know what you're talking about.
Seven of Nine: Obviously you've suggested a visit to the holodeck in the hopes of creating a romantic mood. Are you in love with me, Ensign?
Harry Kim: Well... no.
Seven of Nine: Then you wish to copulate?
Harry Kim: No!
[laughs awkwardly]
Harry Kim: I mean, I... I-I don't know what I mean.

Seven of Nine: I understand the concept of humor. It may not be apparent, but I am often amused by human behavior.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Nightingale (#7.8)" (2000)
Neelix: Didn't we already scan this nebula?
Seven of Nine: Four times.
Harry Kim: I thought the Borg were known for being thorough.
Seven of Nine: The Borg value efficiency, not redundancy.

[Ensign Kim is in command of the Nightingale]
Seven of Nine: I've discovered a serious flaw in one of the ship's systems.
Harry Kim: Which one?
Seven of Nine: The Captain.
[Kim looks at her consternated]
Seven of Nine: The captain's main function is to issue orders, correct?
Harry Kim: Right.
Seven of Nine: And the crew's function is to support the captain and carry out those orders.
Harry Kim: What's your point?
Seven of Nine: Every time you give an order, you carry it out yourself. And when someone else makes a suggestion, you dismiss it.
Harry Kim: These people are inexperienced. They need my help.
Seven of Nine: When you first came aboard Voyager, did Captain Janeway help you?
Harry Kim: Sure, she looked after all the junior officers.
Seven of Nine: By doing your work for you.
Harry Kim: No. She gave me a lot to do, actually.
Seven of Nine: Because she felt you were more capable than she was.
Harry Kim: Of course not. She wanted me to learn, to gain confidence.
Seven of Nine: Interesting.

Harry Kim: This is a military mission. We can't get involved.
Seven of Nine: We've been involved since you first fired on that Annari ship.
Harry Kim: I thought I was helping people in distress!
Seven of Nine: Don't they still need your help? Are you abandoning this ship because the mission wasn't what you expected? Or because being a captain wasn't what you expected?

Harry Kim: I should've stuck to playing Buster Kincaid.
Seven of Nine: A holodeck program can be turned off when it no longer suits you. Reality can't.

Neelix: I was dreaming we found the dilithium 'n' were back aboard Voyager.
Seven of Nine: Dreaming is an accurate description.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Retrospect (#4.17)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: The Doctor told me I would feel better when Kovin gets what he deserves. I want him to be punished! I won't settle for anything less.

The Doctor: Please, close your eyes. Clear your mind. Try not to think, or to analyze.
Seven of Nine: [after two seconds] My mind is now clear.
The Doctor: Seven, this isn't an exercise in efficiency.

Seven of Nine: Resentment is a human trait. It has no structure, no function. I want no part of it.

[Kovin has been killed in an accident]
Seven of Nine: As a Borg, I was responsible for the destruction of countless millions, and I felt nothing. But now, I regret the destruction of this single being.
The Doctor: It's called remorse, Seven. It comes into play when you make a mistake... and you feel guilt about what you've done. Another new emotion for you to experience.

Chakotay: You've been asking for more responsibilities, I thought you'd be pleased.
Seven of Nine: The captain gives me greater liberty only when she needs my expertise.
Chakotay: You violated her trust, and if you want it back, you're going to have to earn it. One step at a time.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Think Tank (#5.20)" (1999)
Kurros: Bewox founded our group more than one hundred years ago, after wandering the galaxy on his own for a few millennia.
Seven of Nine: How old is this creature?
[Bewox utters a deep, gurgling humming]
Kurros: If you please - that is a sensitive topic with him.

[Kurros tries to persuade Seven to join his group]
Kurros: We have a singular mission: to perfect our knowledge. Perfection sometimes necessitates selfishness. It is your life, not Voyager's, not Captain Janeway's or anyone else's. It is up to you to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.
Seven of Nine: I agree. But I can do that here.

Kurros: You know you will never be satisfied here, among these people. Is this what you really want?
Seven of Nine: Acquiring knowledge is a worthy objective. But its pursuit has obviously not elevated you.

Seven of Nine: Cheating is often more efficient.

Kurros: [eyeing Seven of Nine] When we helped the citizens of Rivos Five resist the Borg, all we asked for was the recipe for their famous zoth-nut soup. Care for a taste?
Seven of Nine: [flatly] Another time, perhaps.

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Voyager Conspiracy (#6.9)" (1999)
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Good morning.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps not.

[repeated line]
Seven of Nine: Improbable as it may sound, I've found compelling evidence to support my theory.

Seven of Nine: Your father was Ktarian.
Naomi Wildman: So?
Seven of Nine: The Ktarians were officially with the Federation, but they sympathized with the Maquis.
Naomi Wildman: What are you talking about?
Seven of Nine: Who are you working for, Chakotay or the Captain?
Naomi Wildman: Seven?
Seven of Nine: Tell them it's too late. Go!

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Stardate 51030 - Seven of Nine is severed from the hive mind. The Captain tells her not to resist, and she'll learn to accept her humanity. Seven complies, and slowly begins to embrace her individuality. Does she regret that decision? Stardate 51652 - The Captain encourages Seven to develop her social skills. Seven insists it's a waste of time. But after further requests, she pursues it, and begins to develop her first human friendships. Did Janeway lead her astray? Stardate 52840 - The Captain orders Seven to study her parents' journals. Seven claims they're irrelevant, but eventually she reads them, and rediscovers part of her own past. Stardate 52841 - For the first time... Seven tells the Captain 'thank you'.
Seven of Nine: It was stardate 52842 - 0600 hours, in the mess hall. We had just finished breakfast.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: My mistake. Stardate today - Janeway beams aboard the Delta Flyer. She reminds Seven of the bond that's grown between them. Seven lowers the force field, and she decides to come home. All I'm asking... is that you trust me again.
[Seven complies]

Seven of Nine: Last night, I downloaded six months of ship status reports into my new cortical sub-unit while I was regenerating.
Tom Paris: "Learn while you sleep." I tried that once; it gave me a headache.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Dark Frontier: Part 1 (#5.15)" (1999)
Harry Kim: [after destroying a Borg vessel] I wish that boom had been a bit smaller; we were only trying to disable them.
Tom Paris: They were drones, Harry, mindless automatons. We did them a favor.
[Seven of Nine appears behind Paris, obviously aware of his comment]
Harry Kim: Seven!
Tom Paris: [embarrassed] Um... look, I, I didn't mean anything by that.
Seven of Nine: Your apology is irrelevant. It's impossible to offend a mindless drone.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: [after several training sessions on a "Borg vessel"] I don't know about you, but I'm glad to be back on Voyager. Borg vessels make my skin crawl.
Seven of Nine: It was a holodeck recreation.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Close enough.

The Doctor: [on the Borg research of Seven's parents] This is an important stage of your social development, Seven. Try not to think of it as simply a research project, but as an exploration of how you were raised.
Seven of Nine: My parents underestimated the Collective. They were destroyed. Because of their arrogance, I was raised by Borg!

Borg Queen: We've come to make you an offer: rejoin the Collective and we'll spare Voyager.
Seven of Nine: Why me?
Borg Queen: Because... you are unique.

Seven of Nine: Over the past two years, I have become familiar with the individuals on this vessel. Voyager is my Collective now. Your survival is important to me. I am willing to risk my own well-being, if it increases our chances of success. Assign me to the away team. Please.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Night (#5.1)" (1998)
[Paris has asked Seven to join him on one of his 'Captain Proton' missions]
Seven of Nine: My designation?
Tom Paris: Ah, right. You're Constance Goodheart. You're... my secretary.
Seven of Nine: Secretary?
Tom Paris: Yeah, you tag along on all the missions. Now, I want you to keep the robot occupied, while I save Earth. Computer - run program.
Satan's Robot: Citizen of Earth. Surrender. Do not resist.
Seven of Nine: I am Borg.
[opens the control panel of the robot and pulls out a few wires]
Satan's Robot: Surrennnnderrrr...
[shuts down]
Seven of Nine: The robot has been neutralized. May I leave now?

Seven of Nine: Captain Proton to the rescue.

Seven of Nine: Chance is irrelevant. We will succeed.
The Doctor: A vote of Borg confidence. Who could argue with that?

[Janeway intends to sacrifice herself to get Voyager out of the void]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Tom, set a course.
[Tom remains in his seat with his arms crossed]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Lieutenant, I gave you an order.
Tom Paris: I can't follow that order, ma'am.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Harry, take the helm.
Harry Kim: I'm sorry, Captain.
[Janeway looks at the other crew members one by one, finally at Seven... ]
Seven of Nine: I will not comply.
[... and the Doctor]
The Doctor: What's a hologram to do?
Tuvok: As you can see, you're not the only one who's had time to evaluate the past.

Chakotay: Seven, I want good news. That's an order.
Seven of Nine: Then I must disobey.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Unimatrix Zero: Part 1 (#6.26)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: Welcome to Unimatrix Zero.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Seven?
Seven of Nine: Annika. That's what I'm called here.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I couldn't help but notice, you were a little different in Unimatrix Zero, and I don't mean your lack of Borg implants. You seemed more...
Seven of Nine: Human.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: If you don't mind my saying so, it suited you.
Seven of Nine: I've been told I spent a great deal of time there. But since I don't remember Unimatrix Zero any more than I remember Earth, it's irrelevant.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: To you maybe. But if what I saw was any indication, Annika would disagree.

Seven of Nine: We were more than friends - weren't we?
[Axum nods]
Seven of Nine: Why didn't you tell me?
Axum: You'd forgotten. It wasn't my place.
Seven of Nine: How long?
Axum: Six years. Only while we were regenerating. Very memorable six years. For me, anyway.
Seven of Nine: I should return to Voyager.
Axum: Annika.
Seven of Nine: My name is Seven of Nine.

Seven of Nine: Our previous... friendship...
Axum: Yes?
Seven of Nine: It's irrelevant.
Axum: Irrelevant? Well, now that I'll be able to retain my memory, I'll keep that in mind.

Two of Three: I'm Two of Three.
EMH Mark I: Sorry.
EMH Mark I: [to the Doctor] They're triplets - you know?

Seven of Nine: [to the Doctor] I believe your ego has received enough stroking for one day.

Seven of Nine: [to Kim] When you sing 'Happy Birthday' to your mother, try to stay in tune.

Harry Kim: Argh, I don't believe this! I had a minute and a half left!
Seven of Nine: You'll have another opportunity to speak with them in approximately two months.
Harry Kim: You just don't get it, do you?
Seven of Nine: No.
Harry Kim: Maybe if you had family you were close to, you'd feel a little differently.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Repentance (#7.13)" (2001)
Iko: You're not afraid of me.
Seven of Nine: There's no reason to fear someone in your condition.
Iko: You were never afraid of me, not even when I tried to kill you. It's nice to look into someone's eyes and... not see fear.

Iko: When I was a child, I'd... lie under the stars for hours. I'd stare at them until I could see the shapes.
Seven of Nine: Shapes?
Iko: Faces and animals made out of stars
Seven of Nine: You're referring to constellations.
Iko: I named them. There was Paedos the Warrior and... Gezid the Beast. No matter how hard he tried, Paedos could never catch Gezid.

The Doctor: Quite frankly, I'm surprised you're not troubled by such a... barbaric system.
Seven of Nine: I'm simply being objective. You often encourage me to see both sides of an argument.
The Doctor: Well... this is one occasion when my programing won't allow me to be objective. Killing is wrong, no matter who's doing it.

[last lines]
[Iko has been sent to his death according to Nygean law]
Seven of Nine: It's unfair.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I think so too, Seven. But we have to try not to judge their system.
Seven of Nine: That's not what I meant. Iko was executed for taking a single life. As a drone, I took thousands; but I was never punished.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You lost twenty years of your life to the Borg. I'd say that's punishment enough.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Dragon's Teeth (#6.7)" (1999)
Tuvok: [referring to the Vaadwaur] We don't know anything about this species. They could be hostile.
Seven of Nine: Most humanoid cultures are.

Gedrin: You're Borg.
Seven of Nine: How do you know that?
Gedrin: Don't you recognize my people? The Vaadwaur?
Seven of Nine: The Collective's memory from 900 years ago is fragmentary.
Gedrin: I've had many encounters with your kind.
The Doctor: And lived to tell about them? Impressive.

Gedrin: You are not at all like the Borg I knew.
Seven of Nine: As a drone, I helped assimilate many civilizations. Now I have the opportunity to help reconstruct one. I find the experience... gratifying.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: Captain... I believe I made an error in judgment.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Oh?
Seven of Nine: By awakening Gedrin, I initiated a chain of events that nearly led to our destruction. I wanted to help revive a civilization, not start a war.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You thought you were acting out of compassion. I might have done the same thing. But that doesn't make it right, Seven. The repercussions of this could be catastrophic.
Seven of Nine: Their technology is nine centuries out of date, their plans for conquest are irrelevant.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: They're a resourceful species, determined; they'll adapt. I doubt we've seen the last of them.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Unimatrix Zero: Part 2 (#7.1)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: When this crisis ends, I intend to sever my link to Unimatrix Zero.
The Doctor: May I ask why?
Seven of Nine: I'm having difficulties with one of the people there.
The Doctor: Mr. Axum?
[Seven looks at him surprised]
The Doctor: Whenever you mention his name, your pupils dilate by nearly a millimeter, blood flow increases to your facial capillaries. Both are consistent with an emotional response.
Seven of Nine: Axum and I apparently had a relationship.
The Doctor: Oh. Romantic? - There go those pupils again.

The Doctor: You're very particular about who you choose to spend time with, Seven. No doubt that's why you and I have become friends. If you were involved with Axum once, doesn't that suggest he's a worthwhile individual?
Seven of Nine: He does possess... commendable qualities.
The Doctor: Coming from you, that's high praise.

Seven of Nine: Korok was concerned.
Axum: That doesn't sound like Korok.
Seven of Nine: He said you were missing.
Axum: As you can see, I've been busy setting traps.
Seven of Nine: [contemplating the net she's trapped in] Not the most sophisticated technology.
Axum: Seems to work.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: [referring to Axum] If I ever imply that he was nothing more than a friend... remind me about today.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Friendship One (#7.21)" (2001)
Otrin: Nanoprobes, cybernetic implants... Are others on your crew like you?
Seven of Nine: No, I'm... unique.
Otrin: You certainly are.

Seven of Nine: Human culture has evolved, learned from its mistakes. So can yours.
Otrin: Even if I believed you, Verin never would.
Seven of Nine: Then your people may need a change of leadership - someone more open to new ideas.
Otrin: I'm not a leader.
Seven of Nine: But you're a scientist - someone who can see a problem and envision a solution. The same definition could apply to a leader.

Otrin: You can't deny your people sent the probe.
Seven of Nine: They made an error in judgment. They failed to anticipate the consequences of their actions. But they never meant to destroy your world.

Seven of Nine: If the Borg had intercepted this probe, Humanity would have been assimilated centuries ago.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Endgame (#7.25)" (2001)
The Borg Queen: Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01. It's been too long.
Seven of Nine: What do you want?
The Borg Queen: Do I need a reason to visit a friend?
Seven of Nine: We're not friends.
The Borg Queen: No. We're more than that. We're family.

Chakotay: I was wondering if you'd like to get together again.
Seven of Nine: To do what?
Chakotay: Well, that all depends on your research. Would a quiet dinner be an appropriate fourth date?
Seven of Nine: Hm - I believe it would be a more suitable fifth date.
Chakotay: I'm willing to skip ahead if you are.

[Seven kisses Chakotay spontaneously]
Seven of Nine: I've... been told that anticipation of the first kiss is often uncomfortable. I wanted to alleviate the tension.
Chakotay: That was very considerate of you. What about the second kiss?
Seven of Nine: I'd have to check the database; it may indicate...
[Chakotay kisses Seven]

Seven of Nine: I'd prefer it if you didn't speak to me as though we're on intimate terms.
Chakotay: We *are* on intimate terms!

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Killing Game: Part 2 (#4.19)" (1998)
Hirogen SS Officer: Sing.
Seven of Nine: I will not.
Hirogen SS Officer: Sing...
[draws his pistol and points it at Seven]
Hirogen SS Officer: ...or you will die.
Seven of Nine: Then I'll die.
Tuvok: Seven, you're a valued member of this crew. The logical response would be to grant his request.
Seven of Nine: Logic is irrelevant.
Seven of Nine: [to Hirogen SS Officer] One day the Borg will assimilate your species, despite your arrogance. When that moment arrives, remember me.

Tom Paris: [describing the Nazi] Totalitarian fanatics bent on world conquest - the Borg of their day. No offense.
Seven of Nine: None taken.

Tom Paris: Keep it movin', keep it movin', get the lead outta your pants!
Seven of Nine: Mid-twentieth-century American slang?
Tom Paris: You got a problem with that, sister?
Seven of Nine: You're enjoying this simulation! I find that peculiar, given the circumstances.
Tom Paris: Loosen up, baby doll, the war is almost over.

Tom Paris: [on Brigitte's alias Torres's "pregnancy"] So, what do you think? Boy or a girl?
Seven of Nine: It's a holographic projection.
B'Elanna Torres: Unfortunately it's a very good projection. I feel twenty kilos heavier. It even kicks!

"Star Trek: Voyager: Equinox: Part 2 (#6.1)" (1999)
Captain Rudy Ransom: You know, once we get our enhanced warp drive back on-line, we'll be on our way home. But it'll still take months to get there. You can spend that time in the brig, or... you can become part of this crew. I prefer the latter.
Seven of Nine: I'd prefer the brig.
Captain Rudy Ransom: You know, Janeway is not the only captain who can help you explore your humanity.
Seven of Nine: You would be an inferior role model.

Captain Rudy Ransom: Do you think this is easy for me? The sight of you on that table. But you're leaving me no choice.
Seven of Nine: "No choice." You say that frequently. You destroy life forms to attain your goals, then claim that they left you no choice. Does that logic comfort you?

[about the Doctor's singing]
Seven of Nine: You were off-key.
The Doctor: I beg your pardon?
Seven of Nine: "My Darling Clementine", third verse, second measure.
The Doctor: That's impossible!
Seven of Nine: Your vocal modulations deviated by 0.30 decihertz. I can assist you with that as well.
The Doctor: Really? Holodeck 2, tomorrow, 1600 hours. Just you, me... and a tuning fork.
Seven of Nine: I look forward to it.

Captain Rudy Ransom: Give us the codes.
Seven of Nine: No.
Lt. Cmdr. Maxwell Burke: If she won't give us the codes, maybe we could extract them ourselves.
The Doctor: Seven's cranial infrastructure is highly complex. You'll need months just to figure out what she had for breakfast.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Unforgettable (#4.22)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: Commander Chakotay's face became flushed as he spoke with her. What does that signify?
Tuvok: I'd rather not engage in speculation. It is a dangerous pastime.

Seven of Nine: When you mentioned Commander Chakotay's name, she flushed. He did the same when he saw her.
Harry Kim: What are you saying?
Seven of Nine: I suspect the Commander and Kellin are engaged in a courtship ritual. Seems an unnecessary and complicated precursor to the act of procreation.

[Kellin is showing Tuvok and Seven her flight route in comparison to Voyager's]
Kellin: There, you see? Our ships traveled together for at least two weeks.
Seven of Nine: You could have falsified your navigational logs.
Tuvok: There's no proof that you ever came aboard Voyager.
Kellin: That's what I always liked about you two. Such unyielding logic. Such refreshing skepticism.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Thirty Days (#5.9)" (1998)
Lt. Tom Paris: Ah, boson. Ready to shove off?
Seven of Nine: What are you talking about, Lieutenant?
Lt. Tom Paris: Call me 'Skipper'.
Harry Kim: [repeating Tom's earlier words] Sailor talk. You'll get used to it.
Seven of Nine: I think not.

Lt. Tom Paris: Those structures, what are they?
Riga: It's our main oxygen refinery and desalination plant.
Seven of Nine: [analyzing] Corrosion-resistant alloys; variable density ballast. An efficient design.
Harry Kim: That means she's impressed.

Seven of Nine: It is in my nature to comply with the collective.
[when asked which proposed course of action she would favor]

"Star Trek: Voyager: Natural Law (#7.22)" (2001)
Captain Kathryn Janeway: What do you think we should do?
Seven of Nine: I'm uncertain.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: It's not like you to be on the fence.

[with the energy barrier down, Ledosians have entered the Ventu's territory]
Seven of Nine: Isn't it possible the Ledosians will improve the lives of the Ventu?
Chakotay: Improve them? How?
Seven of Nine: They're intelligent people. Exposure to education and technology may give them better opportunities.
Chakotay: Can you honestly say that you know what's better for them?

Seven of Nine: When Commander Chakotay and I first encountered the Ventu, I found them primitive, of little interest to me. But as I spent more time with them, I came to realize that they're... a resourceful, self-reliant people. Their isolation may limit their potential. But if that isolation ends, so will a unique way of life.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Day of Honor (#4.3)" (1997)
B'Elanna Torres: Tell me something. When you hear about people like the Cataati, do you have any feelings of remorse?
Seven of Nine: [after a pause] No.
B'Elanna Torres: That's it? Just "no"?
Seven of Nine: What further answer do you require?
B'Elanna Torres: Oh, maybe some kind of acknowledgement of the billions of lives you helped destroy? A justification for what you did? Maybe... a little sense of guilt?
Seven of Nine: Guilt is irrelevant.
B'Elanna Torres: Heart-warming.

Seven of Nine: I am finding it a difficult challenge to integrate into this group. It is full of complex social structures that are unfamiliar to me. Compared with the Borg, this crew is inefficient and contentious. But it is capable of... surprising acts of compassion.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Unexpected acts of kindness are common among our group. That's one of the ways we define ourselves.

[Seven has suggested to create a thorium-producing energy matrix for the needy Cataati]
Chakotay: If you've had this knowledge all along, why didn't you say so?
Seven of Nine: I am not accustomed to thinking that way. Borg do not consider giving technology away, only assimilating it.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And what do you suppose made you consider it now?
Seven of Nine: I am not certain.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Maybe... it was just an unexpected act of kindness.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Hunters (#4.15)" (1998)
[Seven is trying to retrieve a garbled transmission from Starfleet Command]
The Doctor: Six words in 58 hours? Wouldn't it be more efficient just to wait until we arrive at the relay station?
Seven of Nine: This message is important to the Captain.
The Doctor: I'm aware of that. In fact, if it weren't for me, this transmission wouldn't have been possible in the first place. I was the one who risked my matrix in order to go to the Alpha Quadrant. If we ever get home... I expect I'll become quite the hero. "Emergency Medical Hologram, instrumental in the return of Voyager crew." Has a nice ring to it, don't you think?
Seven of Nine: On the other hand, it is entirely possible that your program will be deleted and you'll be upgraded to conform to the most recent standards.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'm curious, Seven. What do you think about all this? Messages, the possibility of getting home?
Seven of Nine: It lacks any emotional resonance for me. I've never even been to Earth.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You realize you may have family there.
Seven of Nine: ...That had not occurred to me.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You could have cousins, grandparents... There might be more emotional resonance than you think.

Seven of Nine: [to Alpha Hirogen] You're a crude species. Only your size makes you formidable.

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Killing Game: Part 1 (#4.18)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: [as Mlle de Neuf] When the Americans arrive and the fighting begins, I don't intend to be standing next to a piano singing "Moonlight Becomes You".

Seven of Nine: I must discontinue this activity. I am not well.
[after her neural interface is disabled and she becomes aware of her real identity mid-song]

Seven of Nine: Be generous to Claude this evening. Without him, my voice is empty.

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Disease (#5.17)" (1999)
Harry Kim: Seven, you've been around humans for a while now. What do you think about... love?
Seven of Nine: We're scanning for microfractures. I don't see the relevance.
Harry Kim: Just curious.
Seven of Nine: Parental love, romantic love, affection between friends - specify.
Harry Kim: Romantic love.
Seven of Nine: An attraction based on sexual desire, one that facilitates procreation.
Harry Kim: I guess I'm asking the wrong person.
Seven of Nine: Not at all. The Borg have referenced this condition in over 6,000 assimilated species.
Harry Kim: Condition? You make it sound like a disease.
Seven of Nine: Physiologically, it bears a striking similarity to disease. A series of biochemical responses that trigger an emotional cascade, impairing normal functioning.
Harry Kim: Forget it.

Seven of Nine: [to Kim] Your epidermis luminesced.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: The treatment to relieve your condition was available, and yet you refused.
Harry Kim: I've got a disease; but I'm willing to live with the symptoms. Doesn't make much sense, does it?
Seven of Nine: I assumed that romantic love was a human weakness. But clearly it can also be a source of strength. Perhaps my analogy was flawed. Love is not a disease. Get well soon.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Course: Oblivion (#5.18)" (1999)
The Doctor: [on Paris's and Torres's marriage] I never thought I'd see the day.
Seven of Nine: Given the volatile nature of their relationship, one might have predicted homicide rather than matrimony.
Tuvok: When it comes to affairs of the human heart, it is wise to look beyond logic.

[Seven catches the wedding bouquet]
The Doctor: Congratulations.
Seven of Nine: For what?
Tuvok: You may not want to know.

Seven of Nine: I fail to see the benefit of monogamous relationships.
B'Elanna Torres: So you want to stay single?
Seven of Nine: If you mean remain open to social situations with a wide variety of individuals, then yes.
B'Elanna Torres: I'm married. I'm not going into stasis for the rest of my life. No, I plan to have...
Seven of Nine: I do not wish to be dependent on anyone. By marrying, one limits one's romantic interactions to a single individual - a circumstance which implies extreme monotony.
B'Elanna Torres: I'm glad we had this little talk.

"Star Trek: Voyager: 11:59 (#5.23)" (1999)
[Seven has found the name of one of her ancestors in the database, yet doesn't feel any connection to him]
Neelix: The point is, there's some of him in you, just as there'll be some of you in your descendants.
Seven of Nine: If I choose to procreate.
Neelix: Oh, I wouldn't dismiss it so lightly. Someday you might enjoy a little Seven of Nine Point Five running around.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Shannon O'Donnell inspired me when I was a girl. She had a... an influence on my imagination - on my goals.
Seven of Nine: I never realized genealogy could have such an impact.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I wouldn't have become a Starfleet captain if it wasn't for her.

[in the name of the crew, Neelix has presented Janeway with a family photo of Shannon O'Donnell]
Neelix: I thought it would look nice in your ready room, o-on the shelf, next to your desk?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Thank you. But I'm not so sure she has a place there anymore.
Seven of Nine: You are mistaken, Captain.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Oh?
Seven of Nine: Her life captured your imagination. Historical details are irrelevant.
Tuvok: I concur with that analysis.
Chakotay: If it weren't for Shannon O'Donnell, you never would have joined Starfleet.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Yeah - and I would have never got you all stuck here in the Delta Quadrant.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Drive (#7.3)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: [about Tom Paris] He can be an erratic individual, but he's also a very competent officer, and clearly a skilled pilot.
B'Elanna Torres: It's the erratic individual that takes getting used to.
Seven of Nine: No doubt.

[a good part of the crew is following the race from Astrometrics]
Tuvok: [enters and hands Janeway a PADD] My weekly security report.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'll read it later.
Tuvok: There are a few matters we should discuss.
Chakotay: She said later, Tuvok.
Neelix: [focused on the race] Something's wrong... They're disappearing!
Seven of Nine: Radiation from the Mobius Inversion is blocking our sensors.
Tuvok: [checking the display] How will we track their progress?
Chakotay: We can't. Not until they emerge from the other side of the anomaly.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [feigning interest] Wanna talk about that report now, Tuvok?
Tuvok: Later - if that's permissible.

B'Elanna Torres: Seems like the entire crew has come down with race fever.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps you could persuade the Doctor to develop a vaccine.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Virtuoso (#6.13)" (2000)
[Seven has issued red alert]
Seven of Nine: I believe the Qomar are attempting to disable our com system.
Captain Janeway: How?
Seven of Nine: By overloading it with millions of teraquads of irrelevant data.
Captain Janeway: What do you mean by "irrelevant"?
[she takes a look at the data]
Captain Janeway: They're transmissions... all addressed to the Doctor.
Seven of Nine: Precisely. I've only been able to decipher a small fraction of them so far, but they include invitations to social and scientific functions, requests for personal encounters, and cloying tributes to the Doctor's talents.
Captain Janeway: Computer, stand down red alert. This isn't sabotage, Seven. This is fan mail.

[the Doctor has decided to leave Voyager in favor of his singing career]
The Doctor: I feel I've accomplished all I can here. Oh, there's the occasional medical mystery that challenges my programming, but mostly, it's become routine. And frankly, I feel my talents are often taken for granted. But when I'm standing on that stage performing, and I see those rapt faces in the audience... I feel I finally know what it's like to be made of flesh and blood.
Seven of Nine: You simply crave attention, applause, fan mail.
The Doctor: What if I do?
Seven of Nine: Those things are irrelevant.
The Doctor: To you, maybe. But to me, it makes me feel appreciated... even loved. Not for what I've been programmed to do; but for who I've become.

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: I have something for you.
The Doctor: What is it?
Seven of Nine: Fan mail.
The Doctor: Delete it. I don't want to read another word.
Seven of Nine: Then I'll read it for you.
The Doctor: Seven...
Seven of Nine: [reads] "Dear Doctor. I regret that your last performance was not as successful as you'd hoped. There are still those who appreciate your unique talents, and admire you as an individual. I'll always consider myself your loyal fan."
The Doctor: Who's it from?
Seven of Nine: It's signed, "Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01".
[Seven hands the Doctor the PADD and leaves sickbay. The Doctor reads through it again, then starts singing "I've Been Working on the Railroad"]

"Star Trek: Voyager: In the Flesh (#5.4)" (1998)
The Doctor: I don't mind telling you, Seven, I'm still holding out for a diplomatic solution.
Seven of Nine: Improbable. Species 8472 will not respond to diplomacy.
The Doctor: Funny, we used to say the same thing about the Borg.

Seven of Nine: When you ordered me to disarm the warheads during the negotiation, I anticipated an immediate attack. I believed they would take advantage of your human weakness. I was wrong. If I had been in your position, we would most likely be engaged in a battle with 8472 at this moment. How did you know?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I didn't. Like I said...
Seven of Nine: Faith.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Bring us within range. Target their weapons array.
Seven of Nine: Captain, we should target their power systems as well.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: No. I don't want to risk shutting down their life support. If we can end this without casualties, so much the better.
Seven of Nine: This species does not deserve our compassion.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You picked a lousy time for an ethical debate. The weapons array. Now.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Random Thoughts (#4.10)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: You wish to return this vessel to the Alpha Quadrant, and yet you are following Starfleet protocol regarding first contact. The two objectives are incompatible.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: How so?
Seven of Nine: Your philosophy of exploration exposes Voyager to constant risk. If you maintain a direct course to Earth and avoid all extraneous contact with alien species, it will increase your chances of survival.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Well, that would make a dull ride home.
Seven of Nine: Captain?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: We seek out new races because we want to, not because we're following protocols. We have an insatiable curiosity about the universe.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Our experience with the Mari gave us an insight into a culture we've never encountered.
Seven of Nine: But that is irrelevant.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: No, it's how we gain knowledge.
Seven of Nine: Then we are in disagreement.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [humorously] Good. I dread the day when everyone on this ship agrees with me.

[Seven blames Torres for being careless with her thoughts]
Neelix: B'Elanna is not used to being around telepaths. That doesn't make her guilty.
Seven of Nine: Then her crime was ignorance - a common affliction among your crew.
Neelix: What's that supposed to mean?
Seven of Nine: You make contact with alien species without sufficient understanding of their nature. As a result, Voyager's directive to seek out new civilizations often ends in conflict.
Neelix: What you call ignorance, we call exploration. And... sometimes it means taking a few risks. But it's, it's certainly better than assimilating everything in your path.
Seven of Nine: Your goal is to share knowledge. Assimilation is the perfect means of attaining that goal.
Neelix: Perfect!

"Star Trek: Voyager: Good Shepherd (#6.20)" (2000)
The Doctor: The devil finds work for idle hands.
Seven of Nine: Religious metaphors are irrelevant.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Ever hear the Tale of the Good Shepherd? If even one sheep strayed into the wilderness, the shepherd left the safety of the flock and went after it.
Seven of Nine: So you're intending to rescue them?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: In a manner of speaking. Maybe all it will take will be some personal attention from their captain, maybe something more. But I won't abandon a member of this crew... no matter what their problems might be.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Riddles (#6.6)" (1999)
[Neelix is desperate because he isn't able to restore Tuvok to his former self]
Seven of Nine: When I was separated from the Collective, I too was damaged. I was no longer connected to the hive mind; I lost many abilities that I had acquired as a drone. But I adapted.
Neelix: Because Captain Janeway didn't give up on you. She kept trying to help you.
Seven of Nine: But not by restoring me to what I'd been; by helping me discover what I could become.

Seven of Nine: How do you find something that's invisible?
Neelix: The Ba'neth.
Seven of Nine: We have the ability to illuminate them. But to do so, we must first locate them, which we cannot accomplish without their cloaking frequency.
Neelix: That's quite a riddle.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Equinox: Part 1 (#5.26)" (1999)
[Seven is trying to free Lessing from the debris on the Equinox]
Seven of Nine: Do not be frightened.
Crewman Noah Lessing: Too late for that.

Ensign Marla Gilmore: You said you want to learn more about humanity. I guess we're not exactly prized examples. I'm sorry.
Seven of Nine: On the contrary. You've taught me a great deal.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Timeless (#5.6)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: I wish to examine the results of the simulation.
Tom Paris: Holodeck 2, run them for yourself - that is, if you don't mind being vaporized a few dozen times.

The Doctor: Seven?
Seven of Nine: [staring at her hand] My visual processors and motor cortex; they're malfunctioning.
The Doctor: Sounds like a problem with your cortical implant. We'd better have a look.
[he tries to scan Seven with a tricorder, but she drifts off]
The Doctor: Hold still.
Seven of Nine: I cannot comply.
The Doctor: You're intoxicated!
Seven of Nine: Impossible.
The Doctor: Your blood synthehol level is .05 percent. How many glasses of champagne did you consume?
Seven of Nine: One.
The Doctor: Obviously, the Borg can't hold their liquor.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Inside Man (#7.6)" (2000)
Reg: You're the one who people are most looking forward to seeing.
Seven of Nine: That's difficult to believe.
Reg: Why?
Seven of Nine: I was Borg.
Reg: Exactly. You *were* Borg, but you escaped. And despite incredible odds, you managed to reclaim your humanity. No one's ever done that before; you're famous!
Seven of Nine: Fame is irrelevant.
Reg: Maybe. But you've given hope to everyone who's ever lost somebody to the Borg. You've inspired millions.
Seven of Nine: If you think my participation in the "hoopla" would be beneficial to others, then I'll comply.

Seven of Nine: What are you doing?
Harry Kim: Tying the transceiver into the holodeck's pattern buffer.
Seven of Nine: Those systems aren't compatible. You'll depolarise the relays.
Harry Kim: Starfleet wouldn't have sent this hologram if it weren't important. I'm sure it's worth a few burnt-out relays.
Seven of Nine: [there is a console-shattering kaboom. Seven examines the damage] You've overloaded the transceiver.
Harry Kim: But I saved the hologram!

"Star Trek: Voyager: Life Line (#6.24)" (2000)
[the Doctor is going to be sent to the Alpha Quadrant through a data stream]
Seven of Nine: I've removed your singing algorithms. They'll be stored in the memory buffer until you return.
The Doctor: Why?
Seven of Nine: Your program's too large for the data stream. I have to extract all non-essential subroutines.
The Doctor: They're essential to me. They're part of who I am.
Seven of Nine: Are you planning on performing opera during your visit?
The Doctor: No.
Seven of Nine: Will you be reciting poetry?
The Doctor: Doubtful.
Seven of Nine: Hoverball? Holophotography?
The Doctor: I may want to take a few snapshots to document my trip.
Seven of Nine: Sexual activities?
The Doctor: I get the point.

Seven of Nine: [looking at Dr. Zimmerman's profile] You bear a striking resemblance.
The Doctor: He used his own physical parameters as a model for my matrix. Can't say I blame him. A doctor needs to inspire confidence in his patients. Compassionate eyes and a strong chin can go a long way.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy (#6.4)" (1999)
Seven of Nine: Assimilation is an unpleasant fate!

[last lines]
Seven of Nine: Congratulations, Doctor.
[she kisses him on the cheek]
Seven of Nine: That was a platonic gesture. Don't expect me to pose for you.
The Doctor: Noted.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Bride of Chaotica! (#5.12)" (1999)
[the crew tries to persuade Janeway to take on the role of Arachnia]
Seven of Nine: Think of it as Starfleet's first encounter with Planet X.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Thanks.
Tom Paris: Uh, Captain, it won't be so bad. I can explain to you what you can expect, I can tell you...
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Alright, alright!
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'm a size 4.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: You're not suggesting we wait until this... Chaotica defeats the aliens?
Tom Paris: No, no. I'm suggesting, that we help the aliens to defeat Chaotica. They think he's leading some kind of hostile invasion force, once that threat is gone it's a good bet they will leave and close up their portals.
Chakotay: How do you propose to defeat Chaotica?
Tom Paris: Well, he's been attacking the aliens with his Death Ray...
Tuvok: It's a shame we don't have one.
Tom Paris: No, forget about what it's called Tuvok! In the world of Captain Proton it's the most powerful weapon that there is, and because it's photonic it's lethal to these aliens. Now, in chapter 18 Captain Proton disables this weapon Just before Chaotica can use it to destroy Earth.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And you think that Proton - namely you, of course - could still do that?
Tom Paris: Well, we'd have to knock out the Lightning Shield first...
Seven of Nine: A force-field.
Tom Paris: Yep, now you're catching on. The Destruct-o Beam on my Rocket Ship can can disable the Death Ray but only if someone gets inside the Fortress of Doom and can shut down the Lightning Shield.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Concerning Flight (#4.11)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: It is puzzling that even a Vulcan would refer to a holographic character by name as if it were alive. It seems somehow... illogical.

The Doctor: Well - what happened in the mess hall?
Seven of Nine: Lieutenant Torres and I were working on some astrometric data. There was a disagreement.
The Doctor: I understand things got a little... heated.
Seven of Nine: Lieutenant Torres became emotional. She chose to display hostility rather than to counter my argument.
The Doctor: What did she say exactly?
Seven of Nine: It is irrelevant. Suffice it to say, I was correct, she was not.
The Doctor: [impatient] Details, Seven! I want specifics!
Seven of Nine: I see no reason to discuss these trivialities.
The Doctor: Without my mobile emitter, I am a prisoner in here. I need to know what is going on beyond these walls, trivial or not!
Seven of Nine: [sighs] Torres referred to me as an automaton. She also employed a series of profane Klingon insults. Shall I translate them for you?
The Doctor: By all means!

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Void (#7.15)" (2001)
Seven of Nine: With the additional power, we could reactivate the Astrometrics Lab.
B'Elanna Torres: I can think of some better uses.
Seven of Nine: For example?
B'Elanna Torres: Oh, I don't know, making sure there's air to breathe.

Neelix: [Seven has prepared a gourmet meal for some of the senior officers] Pinot noir, Commander?
Chakotay: I'll have another glass of the Chardonnay.
Seven of Nine: Each course has been paired with a specific wine. Substitutions are not recommended.
Chakotay: The Pinot noir sounds perfect.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Blink of an Eye (#6.12)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: Your world is experimenting with warp technology. Sensors detected an early test... Another test, six weeks later... And a third, more controlled each time. They're learning quickly.
[Voyager is hit by a projectile]
Seven of Nine: Too quickly...

Gotana-Retz: Without the Sky Ship up above them, my people might lose interest in progress. There wouldn't be anything left to reach for.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps they'll miss Voyager so much, they'll do everything they can to follow us.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Scientific Method (#4.7)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: There is no need for anger. I had no intention of causing a problem.
B'Elanna Torres: What, "sorry" isn't in the Borg vocabulary?

Seven of Nine: I am unaccustomed to working in a hierarchy. In the Collective, there was no need to ask permission.
B'Elanna Torres: If you're going to be a member of this crew, get used to it. Procedures exist for a reason; we've got to work together, follow the same set of rules...
Seven of Nine: Lieutenant?
B'Elanna Torres: [musing] I was given that lecture once. By Captain Janeway, when I first joined this crew...
B'Elanna Torres: [to Seven] If I could adjust to Starfleet life, so can you.
Seven of Nine: Of course. I am... sorry for the inconvenience.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Year of Hell: Part 2 (#4.9)" (1997)
Seven of Nine: [after questioning Captain Janeway's decisions in front of the crew] As a Borg, I submitted to a single authority, the Collective. Over the past several months, I've been encouraged to think and act as an individual. It is difficult to know when to restrain myself.
Tuvok: Remember this guideline: the Captain is always right.
Seven of Nine: Even when you know her logic is flawed?
Tuvok: Perhaps.

B'Elanna Torres: [crew raises coffee mugs] To distant friends.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Hear, hear.
Harry Kim: Cheers.
Seven of Nine: Yes.
[cut to Kim taking a sip]
Neelix: [anxious] Well?
Tuvok: [pauses] Interesting.
Harry Kim: Not bad. Not bad at all!
B'Elanna Torres: What is it, exactly?
Neelix: I call it "the Elixir of Endurance." It's loaded with amino acids, carbohydrates, all the nutrients necessary for the crew to withstand these stressful conditions.
B'Elanna Torres: Ration cubes...
Neelix: Well, yes, yes. But this time, pureed and mixed with water and enhanced with Talaxian spices.
Seven of Nine: It is offensive. Fortunately taste is irrelevant.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Ashes to Ashes (#6.18)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: [ordering the children to play on schedule] Fun will now commence.

Seven of Nine: [to the kids] Resume your disorder.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Pathfinder (#6.10)" (1999)
Neelix: I'm ready for my lesson!
Seven of Nine: I've concluded that teaching you to sing is an inefficient use of my time.
Neelix: But I... I've... I've been practicing.
Seven of Nine: In your case, practice is irrelevant. Your vocal cords are incapable of producing basic diatonic tones, not to mention your rhythmic shortcomings.
Neelix: [sighs, disappointed] I sound so good in the sonic shower.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps you should confine your efforts to that location.

Captain Kathryn Janeway: A micro-wormhole?
Seven of Nine: I believe a message is being transmitted through it... on a Starfleet emergency channel...

"Star Trek: Voyager: Message in a Bottle (#4.14)" (1998)
B'Elanna Torres: You may have noticed that some of the crew seem a bit on edge when you're around.
Seven of Nine: I was Borg. I elicit apprehension.

[during negotiations with Janeway, a rather hostile Hirogen is suddenly hit by an energy discharge and goes down]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: What happened?
Seven of Nine: I generated a feedback surge along our sensor link.
B'Elanna Torres: You killed him?
Seven of Nine: It was a mild shock. He will recover.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And when he does?
Seven of Nine: He wasn't responding to diplomacy.
[... ]
B'Elanna Torres: 'Mild shock'? Not bad.
Seven of Nine: Thank you.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Q2 (#7.19)" (2001)
Seven of Nine: You'd be wise to follow Icheb's example. By applying himself, he's become a valued member of this crew.
Q2: Can I see you naked again?

"Star Trek: Voyager: Barge of the Dead (#6.3)" (1999)
The Doctor: Think 'Qapla'!' Think 'Long live the Empire!'
Seven of Nine: Think again.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Alice (#6.5)" (1999)
Seven of Nine: Cultural artifacts?
Neelix: According to Abaddon, they're lost treasures of the Delta Quadrant. If you ask me, they're worthless trinkets.
Seven of Nine: [examining one of the artifacts] Perhaps not. This crystal is beryllium.
Neelix: Valuable?
Seven of Nine: Beryllium is the standard currency in spatial grid 5-3-9. There are species that would trade an entire fleet of starships for this "trinket".
Neelix: If Abaddon knew about this, he'd never have traded it for a few plasma couplings. Maybe I should return it.
Seven of Nine: Need I remind you: "All trades are final."

"Star Trek: Voyager: Waking Moments (#4.13)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: [in Kim's dream, just before she kisses him] Resistance... is futile.

"Dilbert: The Gift (#2.1)" (1999)
[Dilbert's "Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine" alarm clock turns on at 6:00 a.m]
Seven of Nine Alarm Clock: Get out of bed. Resistance is futile. Wake up and assimilate the day. Get out of bed. Resistance is futile. Wake up and assimilate the day.
[Dilbert wakes up in the middle of the second declaration]
Dilbert: I wonder if I could ever date a woman like Jeri Ryan.
Seven of Nine Alarm Clock: That too is futile.
Dilbert: Ok, that's enough out of you.
Seven of Nine Alarm Clock: Do not touch me.
Dilbert: Then how do I turn you off?
Seven of Nine Alarm Clock: Believe me, I am plenty turned off right now.
Dilbert: Clock-tease.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Juggernaut (#5.21)" (1999)
Seven of Nine: Commander. The Captain's plan B. I've calculated the inertial force required to divert the freighter. Plan C - shield modulations that should reduce the structural damage of Voyager. It will also help protect the crew against theta radiation poisoning, if we fail.
Tuvok: A wise precaution. With any luck, we won't be needing it.
Seven of Nine: I didn't think Vulcans believed in luck.
Tuvok: As a rule, we don't. But serving with Captain Janeway has taught me otherwise.
Seven of Nine: She does seem to succeed more often than random chance would allow. I'll factor it into my calculations.
Tuvok: [tentatively] Is there a plan D?
Seven of Nine: No.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Fair Haven (#6.11)" (2000)
[Seven is throwing rings in the pub, observed by a fascinated Seamus]
Seamus Driscol: The lily and the rose are staging a competition on your face.
Seven of Nine: Clarify.
Seamus Driscol: The fullness of your lips and the paleness of your cheeks, it's enough to make a man faint.
Seven of Nine: Then, in that case, perhaps we should sit down.
[Seven throws her last ring, and the two head for a table]
Harry Kim: I don't believe it.
Tom Paris: It's called old-world charm, Harry.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Flesh and Blood (#7.9)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: Perhaps you should've considered the risks before you programed holograms that could commandeer a vessel.
Beta-Hirogen: Capable prey make the hunt more challenging.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Lineage (#7.12)" (2001)
Icheb: I'm detecting another life sign.
Seven of Nine: [looking around] Where?
Icheb: Inside Lieutenant Torres. It could be a parasite.
[before Torres is revealed to be pregnant]

"Star Trek: Voyager: Once Upon a Time (#5.5)" (1998)
Neelix: Do you miss your parents?
Seven of Nine: I barely remember them.
Neelix: Maybe that's a blessing.
[Seven is called away over comm and prepares to leave]
Seven of Nine: I adapted. The child, Naomi, will adapt as well.
Neelix: Borg wisdom.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Fury (#6.23)" (2000)
Seven of Nine: State your intentions.
[to Kes, after she has wreaked havoc on Voyager and attacked several crewmen]

"Star Trek: Voyager: The Fight (#5.19)" (1999)
[first lines]
Chakotay: [Chakotay is in hysterics and lying on a bio-bed] NO! Make them stop!
The Doctor: [to Seven] Anything?
Seven of Nine: Nothing of relevance. His neural pathways are still fluctuating.
Tom Paris: Doc! Can't you do something? Look how much he's suffering.
The Doctor: If I sedate him we could lose any chance of making contact with the aliens!
Chakotay: Get them out!
The Doctor: Commander, can you hear me? Focus on the sound of my voice!
Chakotay: I can't understand them! They won't stop talking!
The Doctor: What are they saying?

"Star Trek: Voyager: Nothing Human (#5.8)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: It is curious. The Borg are accused of assimilating information with no regard for life. This Cardassian did the same; and yet his behavior is tolerated.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Extreme Risk (#5.3)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: You are putting *me* in charge?
B'Elanna Torres: Problem?
Seven of Nine: No. Just unexpected.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Renaissance Man (#7.24)" (2001)
[the Doctor thinks his programs is about to break down]
The Doctor: [to Janeway] I've had something on my conscience for a long time. After I was first activated, I kept a record of what I considered to be your most... questionable command decisions. It's in my personal database. I hope you'll delete the file without reading it.
The Doctor: [to Tuvok] Mr. Tuvok. I violated the most sacred trust between a physician and his patient. I told Mr. Neelix about the cutaneous eruption you developed on your...
[looks furtively around, realizing everyone else is listening]
The Doctor: That was indiscreet. I hope you can forgive me.
The Doctor: [to Kim] Ensign. At your recital last month, I told Lieutenant Torres that your saxophone playing reminded me of a wounded targ. I should have put it more delicately! I'm sorry!
The Doctor: [pushing Kim aside] Seven.
Seven of Nine: You should remain still.
The Doctor: You have no idea how difficult it's been, hiding my true feelings all these years, averting my eyes during your regular maintenance exams.
[the Doctor's holomatrix starts to glitch]
The Doctor: [falling on his knees] I know you could never have the same feelings for me, but I want you to know the truth. I love you, Seven.
[his program glitches again]
Seven of Nine: Your cognitive algorithms are malfunctioning.
The Doctor: [stands up and waves the others goodbye] Goodbye, my friends! Speak well of me!
[the Doctor disappears]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Is he...?
B'Elanna Torres: No, I've got him.
[the Doctor reappears, with his hand still held up]
The Doctor: What happened?
B'Elanna Torres: I deleted the extraneous subroutines.
The Doctor: I'm not going to decompile?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You'll probably outlive us all.
[hands him back his mobile emitter]
Tom Paris: Doc - anything... else you'd like to confess?

"Star Trek: Voyager: Demon (#4.24)" (1998)
Chakotay: [on Kim and Paris] Looks like they went this way.
Seven of Nine: My tricorder isn't picking up any life signs. How did you reach that conclusion?
Chakotay: [indicates the soil] Footprints. - I guess you never assimilated any Indian scouts.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Memorial (#6.14)" (2000)
Neelix: Seven... when you were a Borg, you were involved in some... unpleasant activities.
Seven of Nine: I helped to assimilate millions.
Neelix: I don't mean to be insensitive; but... do you ever feel shame... about what you did?
Seven of Nine: Frequently.
Neelix: How do you manage to keep going, knowing that you've done such horrible things?
Seven of Nine: I have no choice.
Neelix: Guilt is irrelevant?
Seven of Nine: On the contrary. My feelings of remorse help me remember what I did, and prevent me from taking similar actions in the future. Guilt can be a difficult but useful emotion.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Living Witness (#4.23)" (1998)
Seven of Nine: Two of the Kyrians are still alive. What shall we do with them?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Well, you've been wanting to expand your fighting force. Assimilate them.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Critical Care (#7.5)" (2000)
[last lines]
[the Doctor has asked Seven to give his program a checkup]
The Doctor: While I was aboard that ship, I poisoned a man.
Seven of Nine: Deliberately?
The Doctor: Yes. I was trying to force him to let me treat patients who were dying.
Seven of Nine: You were prepared to sacrifice an individual to benefit a collective.
The Doctor: No offense, Seven, but I don't exactly aspire to Borg ideals.
Seven of Nine: You were hoping your behavior was the result of a malfunction.
[the Doctor nods]
Seven of Nine: I'm sorry, Doctor; but I must give you a clean bill of health.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Year of Hell: Part 1 (#4.8)" (1997)
[Tuvok, having gone blind in an explosion earlier, is shaving]
Seven of Nine: You've been damaged.
Tuvok: A minor laceration.
Seven of Nine: I have offered to assist you with your personal grooming.
Tuvok: There are some tasks I would rather perform myself.
Seven of Nine: Unacceptable. You're risking further injury.
Tuvok: Shaving is hardly a life-threatening activity.
