Kes sensed Harry was in imminent danger when she was in Sickbay assisting the doctor. The doctor calls the bridge, and B'Elanna transports the away team back. Janeway then walks back to her command chair in time to catch Kes half-fainting when 8472 talks to her again telepathically.

So somehow Kes makes it from Sickbay to the Bridge in less than a minute. See more »

You KNOW you're in deep trouble when you come into a part of space where the Borg are running at full speed to avoid some unforeseen enemy!!
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Generally, the best episodes of the Trek franchise involved violence. I know this isn't the enlightened Gene Roddenberry idealized way of looking at the future, but too often shows ended up being too cerebral and too PC--so seeing some violence and fighting often comes as a welcomed relief.

When this episode begins, Kes' spider senses are tingling--something BAD is coming! Soon, the ship encounters Borg cubes. However, these 15 or so cubes have no interest in Voyager and quickly fly right past the ship! Obviously they are afraid of something--and it's hard to imagine anything worse and more dangerous than the Borg!! What is coming?!

After Voyager contacts the scary as crap aliens, they realize that they need to do something drastic, but Chakotay is NOT happy with the Captain's decision to try to make an alliance with the Borg. But what other options do they have?!

This show is exciting from start to finish--and it shows that violence, bloodshed and war is pretty least in the Trek universe!
