  • A great episode that loses points for the strangely pessimistic ending.

    Let's start with the ending first.

    Voyager has just used a new warp drive that could get them home in 3 months. It's on their ship. It's essentially Janeway's holy grail. The explanation for why they can't use it anymore is... because they can't. But they'll keep working on it. Which means we'll never hear about it again.

    The ending detracts from an otherwise excellent story, about a vengeful alien whose race was destroyed (arguably) by Voyager's assistance of the borg. Perfect title for the episode as well. The Borg cameo at the end was nice... if just a little terrifying.
