Trivia

The Borg on the damaged cube demand the USS Voyager's navigational deflector to re-establish communication with other Borg in the region. This is an allusion to Star Trek: First Contact (1996), where the Borg tried to construct an interplexing beacon on the navigational deflector of the USS Enterprise-E to contact the 21st Century Borg in the Delta Quadrant.

Goofs

Lieutenant Commander Tuvok states that the U.S.S. Voyager will not be able to go to warp if the navigational deflector is removed. This is not the case, as the U.S.S. Voyager has a secondary navigational deflector. See more »

YES, WE ARE BORG
18 June 2019 | by douglasjordaneSee all my reviews

The evolution of Star Trek can be envisioned in this episode of imperfect drones being rejected by the collective but salvaged by the Voyager crew. This imperfection also marks the history of when Voyager figures out that they have the technology of a virus that can destroy a cube.

Captain Janeway struggles with using the deadly force of the virus on Borg children who survived to run the damaged cube cube and ultimately return to the collective. The unpredictable Borg survivors erratic behavior cause a tense standoff with Voyager. Only 7 of 9 is equipped and knowledgeable enough to save both entities.

This is one of the better story arcs of ST:VOYAGER. The BORG deserved its own spinoff series, starring Jerry Ryan as 7 of 9. Notwithstanding, this episode ("Collective ") was Star Trek at its finest!
