Goofs

The Borg Queen tells Seven that "[the Borg's] first attempt to assimilate humanity was unsuccessful" when informing Seven of the Borg's plan to use a bio-weapon on humanity While accurate, the Queen's use of the singular "attempt" could refer to the events of Star Trek: First Contact (chronologically the first Borg attempt to assimilate Earth as it happened in Earth's 'past'), but it neglects the events of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Queen should have said "our previous attempts" to include all instances of Borg attacks on the Federation. See more »

Good but talky.
26 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the previous episode ended, Seven walks away from an incursion mission onto a Borg ship. In other words, she rejoins the Collective! Soon you see the Borg Queen do her mega-cool entrance and she talks to Seven--informing her that her time on Voyager was all part of the Borg's master plan (yeah, right--you just don't want to admit you screwed up, Queenie!).

Aboard Voyager, they make a discovery--that the Borg were beaming messages to Seven and perhaps she wasn't responsible for her recent actions. Naturally, the Captain wants to do on a rescue mission-- but they have to locate Seven first.

What is the Queen's/Borg's plan? There obviously is more to the plan that we've seen so far.

I generally enjoyed this episode. After all, it involves the Borg. However, I was surprised just how talky it all was when the Queen began talking and talking and talking to Seven--and it did seem to go on way too long and didn't make a lot of sense.
