So I just watched the episode "The Gift" (Season 4, Episode 2) for the first time and I must say I'm really intrigued. I think it was one of the most "human" episodes of the show so far. The moment between Kes and Janeway is very touching, it really hit me when Janeway started to cry And we experience more about Seven Of Nine and damn, Jeri Ryan portrays the character so well. This specific storyline brought up the question above. The discrepance between Seven Of Nine's wish to go back to the Borg collective and Janeway's desire to help her to find back to her true human identity is actually quite deep and interesting. And it made me thinking about who is right actually? I think it's difficult to tell. Putting aside the fact that Janeway, as she explained, had no possibility of bringing her back to the Borg, how do you guys evaluate her decision from a moral point of view? I mean, I know she wants nothing but the best for Seven Of Nine and I wouldn't blame her at all for deciding the way she did. But I can't deny that when Seven Of Nine said she should have the right to decide for her own, I was thinking like "hmm, you can't really disagree on that either". Sometimes we know, or maybe we think we know what is the best thing for another person and that our ideas for them are better than what they have in mind. And that was the case with Janeway I think, of course living in the Borg collective isn't really something to wish for. No individuality, no own thoughts etc., well, no own live actually. But what if an individual decides that it's the best thing for her or him, because it's what she/he is used to, like it's Seven Of Nine's position? Is it right that she gets prevented from deciding to do what she personally feels is the best thing for her? Although we know that her mind is in fact corrupted by the collective? It's a question where I personally don't see a clear "yes" or "no" and if I were in Janeway's place and had the possibility to choose, I wouldn't really know what to do. On one hand I'd be also eager to provide Seven Of Nine with the chance to get a personal live and individualism, on the other hand she is really suffering from being separated from the collective. What do you guys think or how would you decide?
