To facilitate the uneasy Voyager/Borg alliance, the Borg assign Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One, to communicate with Capt. Janeway and Tuvok in development of a weapon against Species 8472. Meanwhile, as the Doctor's modified Borg nanoprobes successfully attack Harry Kim's alien infection, Kes continues to experience a psychic link with Species 8472 that gets ever stronger and more frightening. Through her, Species 8472 learns the purpose of the alliance and attacks, thereby changing the set-up of the Voyager/Borg alliance, the command of Voyager, and each side's plan of action.

According to Brannon Braga, the names Pera and Annika were considered for Seven of Nine before settling on a more Borg sounding name. See more »


The Doctor administers his experimental treatment to Ens. Kim and within seconds the alien biomass consuming his face disappears, revealing healthy skin. Since the treatment was only designed to destroy the alien biomass consuming him, Kim's face should have been a mass of bloody, wounded flesh. See more »


Chakotay: Seven of Nine said that we lacked the cohesion of a collective mind, that one day it would divide us and destroy us - and here we are, proving her point.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'll tell you when we lost control of this situation, when we made our mistake. It was the moment we turned away from each other. We don't have to stop being individuals to get through this; we just have to stop fighting each other.

intense on many levels.
18 May 2007 | by lisafenixSee all my reviews

The first note of this episode goes to the music: very appropriate and definitely gives an intense feel and sense of foreboding. The next nod goes of course to Kate Mulgrew as this is the most forceful and driven we have seen her in a long time. I really do mean driven: the victory-at-any-cost-and-heck-with-any-other-view, type of driven we see again two seasons later, but here she pulls back and listens before the final moment as opposed to watching the reality unfold at her opponents death.

The conversation Chakotay has with the captain in sickbay and the Borg (seven) in the ready room are not exactly intense but the are central and vital to the episode, not to mention cool; don't miss them. To find the meaning of the episodes title and the code word "scorpion" you will have to watch part one, which is pretty much as good as this one.

The only problem I have with the episode is that we find out a season or so later that the "enemy" they unite against was not and is not an invading force as it is displayed and nearly flat out stated in this episode. ("'your galaxy will be purged' sound familiar?") side note this is Kes' near finest and near final hour, keep that in mind. 4 out of 5 stars.
