Re: VOY S7: Unimatrix Zero, Part II

I put off watching Voyager for years. Finally gave in and started binge-watching a few weeks ago (hooray for netflix). Made it all the way to this point without getting mad enough to read online reviews or comment on anything. But these two episodes just left me pissed off. I read this entire review and all the comments. So many good talking points already covered in here so I'll be brief.

1 - How the hell do they expect any doodad, force field, or intergalactic tamiflu pills to 'suppress' having freaking implants drilled thru your damn skull into the grey matter (as was shown)?! total B.S. (as another commented, assimilation is physical not just psychological)

2 - Why did we NOT get a full on bitch-fight between Janeway and the Queen??!! I was hoping that would be the case, lots of grunting and pieces flying off suits and body slams into bulkheads. Woudn't Janeway have had cyborg strength too?! Instead the same old "1 talks intently while 1 acts evil" we've been accustomed to.

3 - Up till now, I've been personally referring to him as Harry "never gets any" Kim, but I've come over to the "can't get a lock" club now. (yes, I remember he finally got some in that one episode, but at what a cost!)

4 - They wasted Tuvok in these 2 episodes. it would have been so much better if he'd tried a remote meld thru the collective with the Queen and we got to see them facing off in their minds. But no...borg-bitch #174984934745 he becomes and does nothing more for the story after that.

5 - don't expect me to believe they can de-drone Janeway, Torres, and Tuvok as easily as that. it took 7-of-9 several episodes to alter appereance and two whole seasons to get sorta 'normal'. As other pointed out, its a surgical procedure, hands, legs, eyes are removed usually. How lazy did the writers get at this point?!

6 - Lastly, as others have mentioned, the idea of a Borg Civil War is awesome and a real intriguing prospect for future Star Trek story lines. You could get whole seasons with remote Star Fleet vessels meeting and working with the 'collective resistance'. I don't yet if they re-visit this premise in season 7 but I bet its crap too.
