How do you solve a problem like Icheb?
2 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the ex-Borglets were brought aboard Voyager a few episodes back, Frauline Maria, I mean Seven of Nine, was given the job of raising the children. Now after several months, she's become attached to her charges and this is a serious problem when Icheb's parents are located. She is NOT thrilled about giving him back--and a lot of this is because of her own anger towards her parents. However, later in the show, her misgivings turn out to have some foundation, as Icheb's parents are hiding a BIG secret--and his homecoming is all a farce.

It's interesting because my wife and daughter were horrified at Icheb's parents and agreed with the insane thing Captain Janeway did to put her ship at risk. I disagreed and felt that the boy's parents really had no choice and weren't the devils that some others thought them to be. What do you think? Let me know.

This episode is very good and I really liked the moral dilemmas posed by this one. Well worth seeing and rather exciting.
