The good news is that we’re introduced to Icheb and the Borg Kids (totally the name of my next band), who are a good addition to the cast. The bad news is that the episode itself is pretty terrible. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch meets an itty-bitty “Collective.”
There’s just nothing to say here. Every beat is predictable and we get nothing to ameliorate the predictability. Seven’s actions with the Borg are just her repeating what we’ve seen her learn since she came on board, Ryan Spahn’s First is a tiresome whiny teenager, and the other four don’t really make much of an impression in their inaugural appearance (though Manu Intiraymi shows signs of the interesting character he’ll become).
