Everywhere the Borg Queen goes in this episode, she is constantly lit by green lights. Even in Unimatrix Zero, where the lighting is completely natural, she has green lighting on her. Does she have a crew of drones who follow her about with green lamps or something?
Great Moment :
It's a fairly weak episode, but the Queen's chat with the little boy was a little bit creepy so that's my choice for this one.
Body Count :
At least 75,000 drones killed on two Borg vessels when the Queen self destructs them. At least a dozen other vessels self destruct, so the total off-screen casualties are likely to be at least several hundred thousand.
Jerome Butler, who plays Korok in this episode, was also in "Star Trek: Insurrection" and the Voyager episodes "Killing Game, Parts I and II".
Janeway, Tuvok and Torres have been assimilated as part of a plan to spread the unimatrix zero effect through the Borg collective. But when the Queen shows her determination to wipe out the infection, Janeway faces a choice - compromise with the borg or see countless millions die. Meanwhile, Seven of Nine battles her feelings when she finds that she had a romantic relationship with one of the residents of Unimatrix Zero.
