A Borg Civil War
18 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beta Borg Queen Suzanna was the happiest Borg Queen of them all, she has successfully assimilated not only Kathryn Janeway but B'Elanna Torres and Tuvok to boot.

So why can't she hear these valuable new acquisitions? She had monologued in the Cliffhanger of the last episode that she expected something "More Cunning" from Janeway.

Well, if she knew what Janeway was really up to, she would have been satisfied. Janeway had found a way to be assimilated but keep her Hooman Identity intact and avoid being sucked into the Collective.

Because Janeway, Tuvok and B'Elanna had been "Assimilated for Bear", each of them containing NanoViruses that will hide all of the Borg with the Mutation that allows them to get into Unimatrix Zero. Their Goal? Just walk right into the Central Plexus and use The Borg's own Assimilation Tubules to inject the NanoVirus into the Plexus.

And it works great, except for this one flaw: They did not give Tuvok enough of the Dope that is preventing the three of them from being completely assimilated.

Big Problem, Suzie-Queen can now hear Tuvok, and has his Tactical Access Codes to Voyager.

Meanwhile Seven of Inverted-Nine-and-Nine goes back to Unimatrix Zero to monitor when the NanoVirus is dispersed. She had found out that she had been part of Unimatrix Zero for 19 years, six of them in an Intimate Relationship with Axum. This makes her uncomfortable and difficult to do her Job, Chakotay has to order her to go in there and set that difficulty aside.

Starfleet has No Tolerance for interpersonal Problems- This is not the first time a Crew Person has been Ordered to do their Job despite not liking it. If The Senate in 2013 had been Starfleet Officers, they never would have tried to shut down the Government, holding the entire government Hostage. Can you imagine if the Maquis Members of Voyager's Crew had decided to perform a "Voyager Shut-Down?" - Janeway would have hung each of them from the Highest Yardarm (Or Starboard Engine Nacelle).

So Seven sets her discomfort aside and gets involved with the people in Unimatrix Zero, helping them set Traps for Unwelcome Drones, and even falls into one of Axum's Traps. This was the perfect thing to happen, it forced Annika Hansen aka Seven to face the subject of her discomfort: Axum (Mark Deakins who does a lot of memorable work for LDS).

She even gets Korok interacting and cooperating with the rest of the members of Unimatrix, and Korok gives Bat'Tehl's to whoever wants to try using them. Axum was given a nice, spiky club that would also do the trick.

Janeway is successful in planting the NanoVirus, but not before Tuvok is assimilated, and gives Beta Queen their access codes, Voyager has to Haul Arse out of there in short order.

And the Queen now sees the Virus and Mutates it to backfire, intending to plant it right into Unimatrix Zero, killing all of the Matrix Drones.

So Janeway is forced to "Compromise" to Suzanna Queen, and tells Chakotay that "Unimatrix Zero must not exist"- This secret Message goes over Suzanna's Head.

And Voyager has some unlikely Help: It appears that Korok's Sphere is near Voyager, between his Sphere and Voyager, they destroy Unimatrix Zero and The Queen's opportunity to kill them all.

But now, the Drones can remember who they were in Unimatrix Zero, and The only way for The Queen to eradicate these drones is to destroy the entire collective.

Annika/Seven and Axum have a parting Scene, she will never meet him because he in in a Ship orbiting Fluidic Space in the Beta Quadrant. But Janeway's s parting words to B-Queen are "I Don't compromise with Borg".

Mark Deakins is also in "Star Trek: Insurrection" - He is on a Roof yelling out some instructions while Picard evacuates a Baku Village.
