In the holodeck simulation where they are cooking, Seven tells Chakotay that his technique is flawed and he should guide the food with his left hand. But when she goes to demonstrate, she in fact does the exact opposite, holding the food in one place with her left hand, while moving the knife laterally across the cutting surface. See more »

Tortured Soul
18 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

If one thinks about the holodeck and human sexuality, it's not hard to let your imagination go wild. Seven is slowly transitioning from her Borg self and still needs to regenerate and depend on her fancy eyepiece. She is so stark in her views on what goes on, but after having a relationship with that man on that planet in a previous time, she has longings. So she begins to practice being human, including a holographic Chakotay. Her work begins to suffer and she almost gets the ship destroyed. It is sad to watch her struggle to adapt. She is gaining emotions and bringing about sadness. Very good episode, giving Jeri Ryan a chance to use her wiles.
