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.
