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.

Weaker Trek efforts
22 May 2020 | by KevinReal310See all my reviews

TNG and DS9 hold the bar for what Star Trek should be - philosophically inspiring explorations into a possible future we can all aspire to, even in the midst of intergalactic war. Voyager is an insult to their legacy.

Season 1 is a tired, dumbed down, shoot them up, mumble jumble of betrayals and double betrayals. A couple of great ideas like the mycelial network and alternate dimensions were explored, but we were only treated to superficial whip cream, not the sundae.

The Borg degenerated into barely comprehensible villains who have to spit out every word. Their bleached skin, one-dimensional characters have no redeemable value. I miss the warrior race bound by ritual and honor we both loved and hated in past incarnations. The female empowerment clap trap was not consistent with their misogynistic culture and seemed slapped on like a dead fish.

Don't trust the studio hacked ratings. No Trekkie would rate this over 5 stars. Netflix needs to stop paying for the international rights as it is simply rewarding bad behavior.
