Storyline

Stardate 53049.2 Voyager docks at a space outpost filled with a variety of Delta Quadrant aliens. Eager for some culture exchange and friendly first contact, Captain Janeway grants shore leave to her crew and rolls out the welcome mat for visitors. Tuvok worries about security, Kim and Paris get drunk and start a fight, Naomi Wildman makes a lunch date with Seven. Despite a crowded ship, a few thefts, security breaches, and the gift of a plant (that bites!) all seems to be going well. Seven of Nine is approached by an alien who holds relics from her Borg days, actual Borg relays from her original unimatrix. Upon seeing the relays she is overwhelmed with images and strong memories of when she was last in contact with the items. She eagerly accepts them and promises compensation, not recognizing the man as Two of Nine (guest star Vaughn Armstrong,) a former member of her original unimatrix. Enter flashbacks: Eight years ago, Seven of Nine and her unimatrix crashed their sphere on a ... Written by Meribor

Quotes

Seven of Nine: I do feel compelled to help them. But I am uncertain as to the correct course of action.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Let me ask you something. Do you think of these people... as family?
Seven of Nine: Is it relevant?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: There's an old saying: "Blood is thicker than water." It means that the ties of family run deeper than any other kind of relationship. We'll often do things for members of our family we'd never dream of doing for anyone else.

Life in the Collective and out really sucks!
28 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show is about a group of three Borg drones who were stranded with Seven of Nine eight years earlier. Seven doesn't know it, but the three later escaped the Collective and outside the Collective things STILL suck. This is because these three act as if they have one brain and are unable to shut out each other's thoughts. While they should have approached Seven about this directly, they instead try to kidnap her and force her to help them--but this is soon detected and they are stopped. However, Seven STILL agrees to help them and the four work together to recover their memories about why it is that they are missing memories of eight years ago AND separate. But, this has many unforeseen consequences.

This is a very good episode and helps explore Seven's character more. An interesting plot as well makes this one worth your time.
