Quotes

Chakotay: Is your body armor designed to handle rapid pressure fluctuations?
Alpha Hirogen: It can defeat most hostile environments. I once tracked a silicon-based life-form through the neutronium mantle of a collapsed star.
Tom Paris: I once tracked a mouse through Jefferies tube 32.

When the hunter becomes the hunted
2 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Once again Voyager encounters the Hirogen, this time the Hirogen aren't trying to hunt them, in fact their ship has been disabled, one of them is dead and the other severely wounded. They take the wounded Hirogen aboard little knowing that its prey is still around, it isn't until something breaks in from outside the ship that they realise they have something more dangerous than one wounded Hirogen to worry about; his prey was Species 8472, the one species that even the Borg are scared of. When the Hirogen wakes up he demands to be released to continue his hunt but Janeway is having none of it, even when further Hirogen ships attack Voyager she refuses to let them hunt the Species 8472. It turns out their prey is wounded and just wants to return home and Janeway decides to help. This decision leads to a serious disagreement with Seven of Nine... perhaps Seven is becoming a little more free thinking than the captain intended.

This was a decent episode which nicely illustrated the contradictions in having a chain of command while also expecting free thought, something Seven has difficulties with as she wasn't raised in such a system.
