Re-enter the Borg
26 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Chakotay and an Ensign are pulled into a planetary dispute. It turns out that there is a dangerous group who used to be Bork. At the conclusion of the last episode, a Borg signature was discovered, so we know what's coming. These intergalactic bees are always around and have tremendous powers. Chikotay gets all caught up in his role in helping these aliens. No one seems all that concerned about the poor ensign who dies almost immediately. Once again, there seems to be some truly bad decision making. Chikotay is incredibly trusting and, as is his want, endangers everyone. Of course, he an Janeway are two peas in the same pod and she would have gotten in over her head.
