Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Because it's easier for me to remember episodes if I write stuff down. The season 4 menus have a freaky cool Borg cube on them.

Scorpion Part II Janeway attempts to aid the Borg in building a weapon to combat Species 8472...

When last we saw Voyager, they had encountered Species 8472 and were trying to cut a deal with the Borg, who were being majorly dorked on by said species. Unfortunately, just as Janeway enters into talks with the Borg, a bunch of S8472 ships turn up and blow seven kinds of crap out of a nearby planet. Not really much of a cliffhanger as we see that the one Borg cube and Voyager got away without being destroyed.

What do Borg do on their planets, anyway?

Janeway and the Borg have come to a deal. Roll credits. Jeri Ryan's already credited on the title sequence, though she hasn't appeared yet, and Jennifer Lien isn't any longer, even though she's still part of the crew (she's an "also starring").

HoloDoc's nanites work on Kim, anyway. Chakotay's anxious about keeping a transporter lock on Janeway and Tuvok. Meanwhile, Kes starts seeing visions of S8472.

The Borg try to link Janeway and Tuvok up to the collective. Gratuitous reference to TNG! And teh grand unveiling of Borg!Seven. She says the idea of using Voyager's torpedoes as a delivery system is crap.

Janeway: "You're proposing a weapon of mass destruction." Oh no! Now GWB is going to go after the Borg!

Kim's already reporting for duty? Shouldn't he be... I dunno, recovering or something?

S8472 appear and mount an attack. The Borg cube rams their ship. Cooooool. Janeway, Tuvok, Seven and a bunch 'o Borg end up in a Voyager cargo bay. HoloDoc says Janeway may have brane damage. Seven wants to go back to another Borg ship, Chakotay tells her to go swivel, Seven responds by telling him humans are eratic.

Random shots of Borg vs Species 8472 ships. The Borg are losing, so they use the deflector dish to pull Voyager into fluidic space. Tuvok spaces the Borg, except Seven who's the only one with the sense to hang on.

Wouldn't fluidic space exert a pressure on the hull? And wouldn't it play havoc with the shields?

Seven says Species 8472 will send ships to intercept and they have to make some torpedos. sneaky.

HoloDoc's fixed Janeway's brane damage. She chews out Chakotay over not following her orders. Chakotay wants to get rid of Seven and try to get back to the Delta Quadrant, Janeway wants to keep co-operating with the Borg.

Er, why's Kes hanging around on the bridge during the battle situation? Oh, for communication purposes.

The nanoprobe warheads destroy the attacking vessels, whereupon Seven returns Voyager to normal space where they encounter a crapload of S8472 ships which they destory using a high-yield warhead.

Seven goes nutty and starts trying to assimilate the ship, whereupon Chakotay links his mind to hers and distracts her long enough for Torres to disconnect her from the Borg collective.

And last shot is Borg!Seven lying on sickbay bed. Hrm, I thought there was a shot with unborged Seven in this ep.

UnBorgified!Seven is next ep. I think.

I don't know what the Borg do on their planets. It'd be cool if they turned them into ships or something, but then they'd have millions of the things. Hmm.

Oh, that subtle last shot, right up her cleavage as she's lying there... Must icon that as "Subtle of Nine"
