Did You Know?


At the 8:33 mark a schematic of a Borg vessel is shown on the monitor. It's a sphere, and the diagramming shows a sort of 'peace sign' when connected. An odd image when looking over anything Borg. See more »


When Chakotay ends the simulation (on both holodecks) the Borg drones and additional crew freeze but the instrument panels in the holodeck that he is on continue show changing lights and information. See more »

Seven returns to the Borg
8 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This first episode of a two part story sees Voyager come into contact with the Borg once again, the only difference to previous encounters is that this time Voyager's crew are actively looking for Borg vessels in the hope of acquiring trans-warp technology which could drastically shorten their journey home. In order to prepare for the raid on a Borg sphere Seven studies her parents journals to learn what they did that enabled them to study the Borg for quite a while before being assimilated. After studying the journals she starts to have nightmares where she is contacted by the Borg. When their find a disabled sphere they beam aboard and manage to steal the technology but Captain Janeway is surprised when Seven announces that she will stay on board and rejoin the collective. Once the rest of the crew have beamed back to Voyager the sphere enters transwarp and goes to an area of space full of Borg vessels where Seven is taken to the Borg Queen.

This was a pretty good opening part to the story leaving the viewer unsure whether it is the last we will see of Seven or even if she will turn against Voyager. It was also nice to see a bit more of Seven's back story.
