Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Scorpion, Part II”

Enter Seven of Nine! The fourth season commences as Voyager teams up with the Borg to battle Species 8472. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch does “Scorpion, Part II.”

An excerpt:

Here, though, the divide between captain and first officer is legit, and it’s one that carries over nicely from Part 1. But what I especially like is that Janeway’s fervent statement that they still need to work together even when they disagree is well taken, because in the end they both were right. Allying with the Borg was the only way they were going to (a) be able to create the weapon to use against 8472 and (b) get across Borg space unassimilated. But in the end, the microsecond the alliance was over, the Borg moved to assimilate the ship, just as Chakotay feared. It’s their nature.
