The Rundown: Seven’s time on the alien ship will make her sympathetic to a hidden factions plans for rebellion.
The more time Seven of Nine spends on the Ohrdi’Nadar ship, the more she hears of how the Septa and her Kz’ar compatriots treat the Vesh. As she listens to Greeb talk about their lives and what they endure, he shows her how they are being used and what steps one of them took to try to free them from Septa’s oppression.
After returning to the ship, Tuvok realizes something is wrong with Seven but she will not express it. Several members of the crew including Harry and the Doctor attempt to discover what the problem is, but Seven continues to hold back. When Janeway confronts her, Seven continues to keep her feelings in check and returns to the ship only to be invited to speak with Septa who gives her a different account of their history.
The Story: Baker continues to craft an interesting story for the characters. The story still takes a slow burn approach that is hit or miss at moments. The multiple confrontations with Seven lasted a little too long, but they did serve their purpose in bringing the character back to her surroundings. The hints at rebellion also seem to drag on a little long, but the story is able to sustain them enough to be engaging and make me want to see what happens next.
The Art: Hernandez brings some great visuals to the story. The characters look great and their surroundings are well detailed. There isn’t any action in the story so most of the art is focused on character and that’s fine. The panels do a great job of focusing on character details which are well done.
