Goofs

The Borg Queen says that Seven is the only Borg to return to a state of individuality. Either this is a deliberate or convenient deception, or she is unaware of the recurring characters 3rd-of-5 ("Hugh") and Locutus (Captain Picard's alter ego) from Star Trek: The Next Generation and the colonists from Star Trek: Voyager: Unity, although it is conceivable she was unaware of the latter.

Good but talky.
26 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the previous episode ended, Seven walks away from an incursion mission onto a Borg ship. In other words, she rejoins the Collective! Soon you see the Borg Queen do her mega-cool entrance and she talks to Seven--informing her that her time on Voyager was all part of the Borg's master plan (yeah, right--you just don't want to admit you screwed up, Queenie!).

Aboard Voyager, they make a discovery--that the Borg were beaming messages to Seven and perhaps she wasn't responsible for her recent actions. Naturally, the Captain wants to do on a rescue mission-- but they have to locate Seven first.

What is the Queen's/Borg's plan? There obviously is more to the plan that we've seen so far.

I generally enjoyed this episode. After all, it involves the Borg. However, I was surprised just how talky it all was when the Queen began talking and talking and talking to Seven--and it did seem to go on way too long and didn't make a lot of sense.
