8 Couples That Hurt Star Trek (And 9 That Saved It) | ScreenRant
This list examines couples that got together and had a relationship over seasons Chakotay wasn't a fan of Seven of Nine when she first came aboard . Nine missed the hints, but she eventually understood Harry's purpose. Tom Paris travels into deep space to check on Seven of Nine. While hiding from . "Oh, I know what your goal is, and it's a noble one. I just don't think . " Chakotay's relationship with B'Elanna was purely platonic." "I'm talking. The problem can be pinned down to the fact that the whole Chakotay-Seven romance thing My problem with that relationship was that it came out of the blue.
The aliens won't allow Voyager to enter their space, but Tuvok and Paris cross the border in another shuttle and head in pursuit. Tuvok beams across to Seven's shuttle, where she explains she's following a homing beacon. They head to a planet where the wreckage of the USS Raven is crashed on the surface. They transport down and Seven recognises it as her parents' vessel. The B'omar attack but Voyager comes to their aid and the crew depart. Janeway tells Seven that her parents' research records are in the ship's databanks; Seven replies that she might read them someday.
Janeway explains that Voyager's purpose is exploration and will continue that mission despite any problems that might occur. This results in the first successful communication with Starfleet since Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant, although it does also result in angering an alien race upon first contact; the Hirogen had claimed the platform for their own. Tuvok and Seven transport aboard the array to speed the downloading of the messages, but are captured and tortured by the aliens.
They are rescued by 'Voyager', but the communications array is destroyed. When the Hirogen threaten Voyager, Seven disobeys Janeway's command and transports the alien aboard a Hirogen ship.
In response, the Captain punishes her by restricting her computer access and curfews her to the cargo bay where her Borg unit is set-up. She confers these memories onto an alien she had just met, and the local authorities seek his arrest. The crew realise what has happened, but he is killed before he can be told he is innocent. She is the first member of the crew who has her memories restored by the Doctor, and helps Janeway bring about a truce with the Hirogen. The Captain wants to destroy them under Starfleet standing orders, while Seven seeks to harness them as the Borg consider the particles to be near perfection.
This experience results in her seeking out the company of other crew members more frequently. This results in the creation of One, a Borg with 29th century technology, whom Seven helps adjust to life on board Voyager. One sacrifices his life to destroy a Borg cube and protect the vessel, dying in front of an emotional Seven. Using a Borg temporal transmitter, Chakotay and Harry Kim manage to send information back in time to Seven to prevent the destruction of the ship.
After B'Elanna Torres disables the device, Seven returns to normal. Instead she is taken back to Borg space where she meets with the Borg Queen, who reveals that Seven's establishment as an individual was all part of a plan to use her memories to allow the Borg to assimilate humanity.
The Queen first has Seven assist in the assimilation of a new species and after some disobedience, has her work on nanoprobes designed to assimilate humans. Furthermore, Seven discovers that her father is assimilated and kept as one of the Queen's personal drones.
Meanwhile, Voyager is working on a plan to rescue her, and using the Delta Flyer approach the vessel close enough that Captain Janeway can transport aboard. Seven and Janeway work together to escape the Queen, and steal technology that reduces their distance to Earth by 15 years. They even went aboard Borg vessels, using bio-dampeners to remain undetected.
However, their research came to an abrupt end in when an ion storm struck the Raven. The ship sustained damage, including, most importantly, damage to the multi-adaptive shielding, which went off-line for This left them exposed long enough for the Borg to detect them and perceive them as a target for assimilation.
The Hansens tried to evade pursuit by masking the Raven's warp trailbut the Borg still managed to pursue and find them.
They and their daughter were promptly captured and assimilated. Naturally, the experience was traumatizing for Annika.
I've wanted to test the new shield modulations in a tactical situation. Without them, we couldn't remain in the nebula as long as we have. The bad news is that they've adapted to the new quantum torpedoes. Paris stacked the dishes on the tray and headed below to work on the impulse drive. He knew that their situation would end one of two ways. Without warp drive, they couldn't think of leaving the nebula and facing a second attack from the Borg.
They had to convince the Borg that the Flyer was beyond repair by playing dead, or they would have to restore impulse power and inch slowly away from their pursuers until Acropolis could come to their rescue.
Either way, they were stuck in the nebula for awhile, a prospect that didn't make him happy. He liked Seven better than most people did, but she'd been too deadly serious about her rescue mission for his taste.
She might be happy spending a week or two playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a Borg sphere, but Paris had a family to get back to on Earth, and the sooner the better.
He looked at the shattered impulse engine in despair and silently cursed Janeway for sending him on this fool's errand.
On the command deck, Seven continued to work on the subspace transmitter. Concentrating on her work helped her ignore the nagging guilt and grief she felt for the Free Borg.
She remembered the last time she had been with Axum during the final moments that Unimatrix Zero had existed. She could still feel his arms around her, still recall the thrill she felt when he kissed her, still hear him promising to find her someday. She suspected that he'd spent the last two years trying to get to Voyager's location, and she worried that the Queen had found and destroyed his sphere in the meantime.
While the Free Borg drones were being hunted down, she'd been smug and secure in the safety of her Voyager collective, unaware of the fact that her fellow drones were being ruthlessly tracked down and killed. She had no right to be happy and safe when others like her died, and her current efforts were an atonement for her selfishness.
Tears filled her eyes as she pushed herself to keep on working.
A few hours later, the Flyer "drifted" toward the far side of the nebula on minimal thrusters while Paris and Seven sat in the frigid darkness with little to do but think about their perilous future. The subspace transceiver was operational if and when they had the chance to use it and shields were holding against the vicious nebula gasses, but the impulse engines were beyond repair. They'd been forced to reduce their power usage to minimum levels with the hope that Acropolis would find them before it was too late, but in the meantime, they could do nothing but wait for something to happen.
Your effort to find the Unimatrix drones. I was just unlucky this time. He'd forgotten how difficult it could be to talk to Seven when she was in full Borg mode.

However, he had his orders and wasn't about to face the admiral without attempting to determine Seven's real mental state. She's commed me regularly to point out how dangerous my tactics are and to recommend 'less risky' procedures.
She is the one who sent you out here to test the Flyer's modifications. We all are—the whole crew. We missed you at the one-year reunion. I thought he was just a friend. I had no idea. Once I remembered our time together in Unimatrix Zero, I missed him terribly. Weren't you being unfaithful to him when you got involved with Chakotay? I chose to become involved with the commander because he reminded me of Axum.
I hoped to experience some of the intimacy I'd lost once Unimatrix Zero was destroyed. And here we all thought that you two got together because Chakotay gave up. The Flyer's slow movement slowed, at the mercy of the eddy and flow of the nebula. The longer we delay them, the more likely it is that Acropolis will arrive and chase them away.

However, it's likely that the Borg have summoned reinforcements as well. But, you weren't there in the early days, right after the captain destroyed the Caretaker's array, or during the first few encounters with the Kazon and the Vidiians. They're both well-trained Starfleet officers, after all, and not about to let us see the truth. Surely you knew that. Maybe I saw it because I was with them on the bridge for countless hours, when they'd let their guard down.
I saw how they interacted with each other in good times and bad, and there was always a spark there that was impossible to deny. They became friends almost at once, and for years, they flirted without mercy and whispered back and forth like kids.
I really thought it was just a matter of time before they jumped each other's b—. What emotion I did see I attributed to the dynamic ebb and flow of their positions, not their personal desires. By then, they'd come to terms with their predicament and moved on. Naturally, everyone assumed that they would When they returned to the ship, they were model Starfleet officers, all business. The playful banter pretty much disappeared, and the teasing and whispering on the bridge became the exception, not the rule.
I always thought they'd become too close on that planet, way too close for a captain and first officer, and not many people can go back to just friendship once they've fallen in love with each other. And then we hit Borg space and everything fell apart.
They had a couple of big fights over what we should do about the war between the Borg and species Janeway was determined to force the Borg to help us and furious with Chakotay when he broke the agreement she'd made.
