Dark Frontier, Part 1

Review

Series : Voyager Rating : 4
Disc No : 5.4 Episode : 109
First Aired : 17 Feb 1999 Stardate : 52619.2
Director : Cliff Bole Year : 2375
Writers : Brannon Braga, Joe Menosky Season : 5
Guest Cast :
Carl David Burks as Russell
Eric Cadora as Alien
Katelin Petersen as Annika Hansen / Seven of Nine
Kirk Bailey as Magnus Hansen
Laura Stepp as Erin Hansen
Scarlett Pomers as Naomi Wildman
Susanna Thompson as Borg Queen
YATI : The Raven log entries quote two stardates, 32611 and 32623.5 and they claim that these are eight months apart, however, they are only 12.5 stardates apart! The Borg queen claims that Seven of Nine is the only Borg that has ever returned to a state of individuality, however Hugh and his entire ship did this in TNG episode "I, Borg".
Great Moment : I like the scene where Voyager's crew are picking through the Borg wreckage in their cargo bay. Also, the first sighting of the unicomplex. That thing is HUGE!
Body Count : The crew of the first Borg ship and at least one drone on the Borg sphere. We also see two borg killed in a holodeck simulation. What about the people on the planet
Factoid : One of Voyagers most controversial episodes - we learn a lot about the Borg but much of it seems to contradict earlier episodes, especially "Q Who". However, IMHO the contradictions are not nearly as major as is often claimed, and the episode itself is an enjoyable ride.

Plotline

When Janeway destroys a Borg probe, the wreckage yields up the location of a damaged sphere - and prompts a daring mission to board the ship and steal a transwarp coil. To facilitate the mission Seven of Nine must look through her parents Borg research - a task which brings up painful memories. Further complications arise when she starts recieving secret messages from an old friend. With Seven of Nine back amongst the Borg, Janeway decides to risk all in order to mount a rescue mission. But the job means going into the very heart of the collectives power, and facing the Borg Queen herself.
