Re: Star Trek: Voyager - A Marathon Re-visit.

DRONE - 5x02 - 4/5

I must have missed this episode entirely the first time I watched Voyager as I don't recall it all and it felt like a brand new episode! That's always a pleasant surprise.

It's also great when an episode you've completely forgotten happens to be really really good as well. It's a bit reminiscent of 'I, Borg" but that's okay, since that was a fairly stellar episode.

This is a little different though, as we're basically witnessing a Borg child taking it's first steps into the world and trying to understand the universe and the people in it. One is portrayed very well and the episode is great to watch, especially the interplay between him and Seven.

The episode also manages to elevate itself with One's heartbreaking sacrifice, which also contributes to Seven's growth as a person.
