Goofs

When Janeway orders Chakotay to take an away team to the Borg ship, she tells him that they will keep an open com link and an active transporter lock on them. When Chakotay is on the Borg ship, he needs to tap his communicator and request a connection with Captain Janeway. This would not be necessary if they had an open com link. Later Torres can not get a lock on the away team to transport them. She should have known the lock was down previously if she was actually keeping an active lock on the away team. See more »

You KNOW you're in deep trouble when you come into a part of space where the Borg are running at full speed to avoid some unforeseen enemy!!
20 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Generally, the best episodes of the Trek franchise involved violence. I know this isn't the enlightened Gene Roddenberry idealized way of looking at the future, but too often shows ended up being too cerebral and too PC--so seeing some violence and fighting often comes as a welcomed relief.

When this episode begins, Kes' spider senses are tingling--something BAD is coming! Soon, the ship encounters Borg cubes. However, these 15 or so cubes have no interest in Voyager and quickly fly right past the ship! Obviously they are afraid of something--and it's hard to imagine anything worse and more dangerous than the Borg!! What is coming?!

After Voyager contacts the scary as crap aliens, they realize that they need to do something drastic, but Chakotay is NOT happy with the Captain's decision to try to make an alliance with the Borg. But what other options do they have?!

This show is exciting from start to finish--and it shows that violence, bloodshed and war is pretty cool...at least in the Trek universe!
