Review : It looks as though Jeri Ryan really can act. She was convincing as every character she played. It's also worth remembering that when she was playing the little girl, Seven could have turned dangerous at any moment, while she was with Naomi Wildman. I only realized that later on. Speaking of little Naomi, the writers should be careful not to over-use her, I think we all know why, but she performed a role here that an adult character could not. The Borg server (surely that's what it was) served as a reasonable concept, and I like Species 6339's attempt to hurt the Borg through a virus, almost what Picard should have done via Hugh in "I, Borg". It's a bit odd how many victims from Wolf 359 appeared out of all the trillions the Borg must have assimilated, but I'll let them have that for dramatic licence. The Doctor seems to have taken against mind melds recently, which is a bit odd. Anyway, full marks to Jeri Ryan and not bad to the writers for a good, solid episode. By the way, Spp 6339 should have got a name, even if it began with 'T'.

Review : Proving yet again that Jeri Ryan was a worthy addition to the cast of Voyager, capable of more than sticking her jugs out in front of her. I was initially resistant to the idea of her being cast as it was a blatant ploy, but right from the off she brought something new, something interesting to the series and ranks among my favourite characters, even if she could have lightened up a bit as time went by. I thought from her first appearance that she could act and never understand people who didn't. There's a little bit of alpha quadrant stuff in here as well with a Ferengi and Starfleet officers assimilated at Wolf 359; always love a bit of continuity (Bermaga aren't credited for this episode which probably explains why we're seeing it). Good episode, well-played.
