When Seven of Nine sings the vocal exercise with the Doctor, the display screen shows a "simple melody." The letters say that the melody consists of the notes "A C E C D B A G A." This does not correspond to the music notation displayed on the screen, which shows the melody containing C sharps and G sharps. Seven sung it as such. See more »

Voyager's take on My Fair Lady
26 April 2007 | by calibanplayerSee all my reviews

The main plot of this one involves Seven of Nine learning more social skills. The Doctor and Tom Paris make a bet about her potential, with the Doctor coaching her on.

A Sub-plot involves an ambassador from a bland culture visiting the ship and Neelix in charge of his well-being. Scott Thompson (The Kids in the Hall & The Larry Saners Show) plays the ambassador in a hilarious performance.

We also meet a crew member on the ship who isn't killed after speaking 2 lines, and he has a personality. He's the one Seven of Nine asks to dinner.

This one is more about laughs and singing and Seven of Nine's feelings, showing she does have a heart beneath the catsuit and Borg Impants. This one is worth the watching for Scott Thompson alone.
