Goofs

Up until the moment when Seven fully realizes her isolation from the Collective, she generally refers to herself as "this drone" or "we/us", which is typical for a Collective-bound Borg. However, just after being awoken at the beginning, she accidentally says, "*I* can't hear the others", and later, when revived in sickbay, "What have you done to *me*?" See more »

Is Janeway a hypocrite?
20 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode concerns two females aboard Voyager. Kes' psychic abilities continue to improve--and Tuvok is concerned because they are so powerful and, at times, almost god-like. The other plot involves Seven of Nine. Her Borg implants are now being rejected since she's no longer a part of the collective. The Doctor can either let her die or remove them. But this is like playing god and violates the Prime Directive, as they take them out despite her objections. Does this make Janeway a hypocrite? Perhaps...but also an expedient one. Overall, the title of the show, "The Gift" has meaning for both of these women and is a fascinating show with interesting ethical dilemmas. Well worth seeing...and a show you really MUST see due to its impact on the rest of the series and its characters.
