Episode propagandaSeven of Nine's (Jeri Ryan) usually exemplary performance begins to deteriorate when she experiences a bout of holo-addiction brought on by a personal training program. Unusually for Seven the program is not a technical simulation but a romantic scenario featuring Seven and the partner of her dreams: Chakotay (Robert Beltran)!

Intelligence reportThe Seven of Nine story arc continues.
As the latest instalment of Seven's growing humanity, she is now experiencing sexual attraction and all the fun emotions that go with it. That she picked Chakotay as her holo-playmate is not only because he's the only single male on board Voyager who won't get killed for talking to a major character, but because he's the furthest up the chain of command. This girl likes a man in control. He's also one of few people who has been inside her mind and who has experience of the Borg collective consciousness. And he's cute (in a bear kind of way). All good reasons to root him.
What doesn't sit so well is Seven's holo-addiction. Sure, it's new, it's fun and sex is pretty damned distracting, but even a late bloomer wouldn't be that obsessive about it. She even lies to Kathryn, which is something she's never done before (as an individual).
The B-story, Voyager finding itself adrift in a firing range, is a nice excuse for danger and some fun technobabble, not to mention some neat explosions. Enjoy.
