Seven versus Janeway
2 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Janeway knows of something called the Omega Directive. Apparently, there is a molecule that has immense power. It has been reproduced and is on the verge of a destructive vent. At first Janeway is quite secretive, but at the insistence of Chakotay, she changes her mind and lets her officers in. Seven has a different view of what to do because she is aware of Omega from the Borg's dealings with it. She butts heads with the Captain. She feels how inferior everyone is and is frustrated when they outrank her. Entertaining episode but leaves us wth unanswered questions.
