  • Voyager tries to plot a neutral course between Species 8472 and the Hirogen.

    This is a good episode. Voyager finds an injured Hirogen and soon finds out that he was attacked by Species 8472 - and it is on their ship wrecking havoc! Janeway tries to help the Hirogen recover from his injuries (and avoid future conflict) and also decides to send Species 8472 back to their space/home. Seven of Nine provides the conflict - unwilling to help 8472 - and seemingly scared of them. The Hirogen also provides conflict - unwilling to bend to Janeway/Chakotay's will - and prepared to fight to the death. Then other Hirogen ships arrive and attack Voyager. Seven of Nine takes matters into her own hands and sends 8472 and the injured Hirogen back to the Hirogen ships. Janeway is furious and restricts Seven's future activities. This episode demonstrates the potential for Seven's character to create drama with other characters on Voyager and gives both Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan some room to show their acting abilities. A story where the ramifications continue beyond this episode.
