Icheb was a nice little addition with a lot of potential; he got some decent development for the amount of time he spent onscreen. The others didn't have much of a purpose, which is probably why they didn't have much of a role or much of an exit either.

Re: The Borg Kids

I liked them, and immo they were a good idea;
they got all different personalities, and the episodes/scenes that show them are enough well structured,
even if, in the end, in the big scheme of the series, they didn't got to have all the light they could... well, apart from Icheb.

Re: The Borg Kids

I found the voyager kids to be annoying as hell. And the twins didn't have hardly any lines like one of the previous posters said. They were pretty pointless. The girl was ok but she was annoying at times. The first episode they appeared in was a little tough to watch. The baby borg forced me to stretch my imagination a little too far.

Well there has been a lot imagined about the final fate of the borg baby.
I'm certainly less inclined to bash Voyager now, it is not nearly as bad a show as many people make it out to be. - TheGodBen

I wish they'd dne more with them, but I thought they were as un/interesting as several other one-offs. I liked them for Naomi's sake.

I didn't mind Icheb and Mezoti, but the twins Rebi and Azan were absolutely pointless. I don't think they said 10 words between them and had no character whatsoever. I can't tell if the kids were decent actors or not since they were given squat to do. They should have retooled "Imperfection" by having one twin save the other by sacrificing his cortical node. Would have had the audience care for them at least a little.
I think it makes sense they didn't speak. Borg are slaves, a slave that speaks or speaks out of term is ususally beaten & tortured and made an example of. As young children the affects of Borg slavery will say with them for years, the effect is them being used to having others speak for them.

Much like Hugh, a good slave keeps it's mouth shut, it's head down and does it's work. Speaking up gets you noticed and deactivated.

I've skipped most of those episodes over the years so I guess that makes my opinion clear.

Re: The Borg Kids

I liked them. "The Haunting of Deck Twelve" is a fun episode and one of my favorites; a good Neelix and kid episode. One of my favorite lines is from Mezoti, when she says "Neelix! Continue with the story -- and don't leave anything out!" Pure kid.

Having the kids on board was a good idea in order to explore how the Borg handled this aspect of their lifespans. We got to see specifically how they matured, from the Borg baby on up.

It also continued a view of Seven's life, how it must have been for her after the events of "The Raven." Without the kids, there would have been no episode such as the one with Icheb's parents, which was one of the most emotional and absorbing stories.

I liked Icheb only because he was sooo clever and sooo correct . The other kids were just annoying.

I liked them. Child's Play is one of my favorite episodes, even though not favorable on this board.

Re: The Borg Kids



and, I liked Mezoti mostly because she was Icheb's cute little snarky partner.

I did, however, think Icheb was tamed a little too quickly. He was more fiery in some episodes than others. Although, he was a teenager, and teenagers do tend to be a little bipolarish...rebellious one day and ambitious the next...

Also, I love Icheb.

Ichy was nice. Both him and Naomi had nice scenes with Seven, teaching her aspects of the humanity Janeway never could have.
