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 »


On Stardate 32611.4 (2353) the Hansens have received approval from the Federation Council on Exobiology to began their search for and study of the Borg 12 years before the Federation knew of the Borg's existence. The Enterprise's first encounter with the Borg was in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Q Who? on Stardate 42761.3 (2365). See more »

Captain Janeway...what ARE you thinking?!
26 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For Captain Janeway, this is an odd two-parter because her character acts very odd compared to the usual Janeway. First, she announces she's tired of dealing with the Borg from a defensive posture after Voyager blows up a Borg ship. The plan? She wants to send a team aboard a damaged Borg ship and steal its warp core. But here is where Janeway gets REALLY weird--she insists that Seven get in touch with her childhood and practically forces her to read through her idiot* father's old logs. Not surprisingly, this really messes with Seven's brain. Later, when they do attack, Seven unexpectedly rejoins the Collective--perhaps due, in part, to her PTSD and reading Daddy's log. Sure, there's a bit more to it than that...but you do wonder how much Janeway's orders led to this.

This is an exciting episode. However apart from Janeway, you learn that Seven's father is extra-stupid and practically does everything he can to destroy his family! Still, the show is full of action and high on the cool factor.
