At about 32 minutes in, Janeway asks Tuvok how long it has been since he lost contact with Kim, and Tuvok replies "Four or five minutes." It has been long established in the series that as a Vulcan, Tuvok speaks precisely - a comment that vague is completely out of character for him. See more »


B'Elanna Torres: I can't believe we're negotiating with adolescent drones.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: They're not exactly drones. Mature Borg are predictable; they'll ignore you or assimilate you.

When Chakotay, Tom, Harry and Neelix sit down to play a game of poker as the return from an away mission on the Delta Flyer they think it will be a quiet flight home, that is proved wrong when they encounter a Borg cube. Three of them are soon captured but aren't immediately assimilated as expected in fact they don't see any drones, Harry was injured in the initial attack and wasn't spotted by the Borg when they took the others off the flyer. When Voyager attempts a rescue they learn that everything isn't as it should be aboard the cube. The Borg offer to exchange the prisoners for Voyager's deflector dish, before agreeing Captain Janeway insists on sending Seven of Nine over to the cube to ensure that the crewmen are well. Once there she is surprised to find that instead of a crew of thousands there are only five drones on board and they are just children. They are insistent that that the collective will send a cube to rescue them, Seven discovers that the collective has no intention of rescuing them but chooses not to tell them in case they act irrationally when they learn they are unwanted. The Doctor learns that the adult drones were killed by a virus and against his advice the captain orders him to use this virus to make a weapon to kill the young drones. Seven must persuade them that they don't have to live as drones before the captain is forced to release the virus.

This was a good episode that had plenty of excitement and while it was unlikely that any major characters would come to any harm it was interesting to see how far they would be prepared to go to save the captives.
