Andy’s Suggestions

  • Flashback (season 3, episode 2) - Captain Sulu interacts with Janeway through a mind meld and flashback from Tuvok.
  • The Chute (season 3, episode 3) - Tom Paris and Harry Kim are thrown down a chute and into a brutal alien prison.
  • Warlord (season 3, episode 10) - Kes gets taken over by a warlord.
  • The Q and the Grey (season 3, episode 11) - Q decides he wants Janeway to have a baby with him.
  • Unity (season 3, episode 17) - A definite must watch! A community of disconnected Borg connects with Chakotay.

Next Up: Scorpion (1&2)

Jessica's Prediction

This is like the allegory where the snake (Borg) gets a ride on a turtle (Voyager) and halfway through the ride gets bit. Why'd you do it, Snake? Because it's in their nature.
