Susanna Thompson had to take a day off after every day of shooting, because of the discomfort from the Borg Queen make-up and contact lenses. See more »


The Borg Queen says that Seven is the only Borg to return to a state of individuality. Either this is a deliberate or convenient deception, or she has forgotten about Third of Five/Hugh from TNG's "I, Borg" (who became an individual after crash-landing on a remote planet) and the colonists from the "Unity" episode of Voyager which she may not have been aware of. Locutus of Borg/Captain Picard also gained back his individuality in "The Best of Both Worlds" episode of TNG. See more »


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.

Rescuing Seven
9 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This second episode of a two part story is even better than the first with more action and a greater sense of threat as the Borg Queen attempts to bring Seven of Nine back in to the Collective although not as a drone; thinking her individuality will help them devise a strategy to assimilate humanity. As part of her reintegration with the Borg she is invited to take part in assimilating an alien race but when it comes to it she can't do it and helps four of them escape, when it appears they will be caught she begs the queen to spare them.

Back on Voyager Captain Janeway hasn't given up hope of rescuing Seven as she believes she didn't leave of her own free will. They search through Seven's parent's records to try to formulate a plan to find Seven and free her from the drone; this plan sees them using the stolen trans-warp drive and to a stand off between Janeway and the Borg Queen.

This exciting episode saw some good acting from Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine and Susanna Thompson as the sinister Borg Queen. The ending was particularly good even though it was no surprise that the captain would prevail.
