    Chuckles: That might be true if she were willing, but she's not in the most cooperative mood.

    Janeway: That could change. I just have to reach her somehow.

    She turns the desktop viewer around to show Chakotay the file on a human girl.

    Janeway: Annika Hansen.

    Janeway: It took some digging through the Federation database, but I managed to find a single entry in the records of Deep Space 4. Her parents were unconventional. They fancied themselves explorers, but wanted nothing to do with Starfleet or the Federation. Their names were last recorded at a remote outpost in the Omega sector. They refused to file a flight plan. Apparently, they aimed their small ship toward the Delta Quadrant and were never heard from again.

    CHAKOTAY: For all we know, Annika and her parents were the first humans the Borg ever assimilated.

    Janeway: From what she's told me, that was almost 20 years ago.

    CHAKOTAY: So she was raised by the Borg. It's the only life she ever really knew. If you were thinking of bringing her into the fold, that might not be possible

    Janeway: What's the alternative? Toss her to the wolves?

    EMH: It's like peeling an onion.

    Store it in a bio-stasis chamber. It may still be active. If you think there's a risk, Mr. Tuvok, you can throw one of your little force fields around the chamber.

    EMH: I'm afraid we have a decision to make. A difficult one. Her human immune system has reasserted itself with a vengeance. Body armor, Borg organelles, biosynthetic glands, they're all being rejected. Her life is in danger. I have little recourse but to remove the Borg technology.

    EMH: Hence the difficult decision. If a patient told me not to treat them, even if the situation were life-threatening, I would be ethically obligated to honor that request.

    JANEWAY: This is no ordinary patient. She may have been raised by Borg, raised to think like a Borg, but she's with us now. And underneath all that technology she is a human being, whether she's ready to accept that or not. And until she is ready, someone has to make the decisions for her. Proceed with the surgery.

    EMH: Aye, Captain.

    Kes? Let's begin with the microtubular network embedded in the esophageal tract.
