DirectorDavid Livingston 
 
Synopsis
Seven of Nine shows some uncharacteristic emotion when three of the four Borg children leave the U.S.S. Voyager, but the Doctor confirms that she may just have malfunctioning ocular implants. The remaining young Borg, Icheb, then decides that he would like to join Starfleet Academy so that he can have more responsibility on the ship. When Seven later admits to suffering from some headaches, it is discovered that she needs a critical operation requiring a new Borg cortical node. It may be that Icheb is the only one who can save her and he secretly performs a dangerous procedure on himself and places his own life in jeopardy.
 
Guest Cast
Manu Intiraymi (Icheb)
Marley McClean (Mezoti)
Kurt Wetherill (Azan)
Cody Wetherill (Rebi)
 
Notes
The crew has built a brand new Delta Flyer. It is the same as the old design, with slight interior cosmetic differences.
Azan and Rebi's homeworld is Wysanti. The Wysanti take in Mezoti. Icheb elects to remain on Voyager with Seven.
Icheb removes his Cortical Node in order to save Seven of Nine. Because he is young, he was able to adapt without the node, though the recovery took weeks.
Icheb's Academy entrance exam results are to be transferred in the next datastream. Janeway offers to administer the exam. If (when) he passes, the crew will instruct him in the classes. Tuvok was an instructor at the Academy at one time. This is consistent with Wesley Crusher on the Enterprise.

B'Elanna begins to question that her relationship with Tom is going nowhere after he cancels another date to compete in the race. However, after talking to Seven, she decides to embrace his interests and replaces Harry as Tom's co-pilot.

Synopsis
Tom and B'Elanna try out Tom's new holodeck program -- a mid-20th century movie theater -- only to find Bajoran crewman Tabor comatose in the front row. Though still alive, Tabor has suffered an attack that left his skull cobwebbed with microfractures. Two more crew members soon suffer the same fate, and all three are former Maquis. Chakotay decides that the attacker must be a member of Voyager's original Starfleet contingent, and puts his fellow ex-Maquis on alert (as well as ordering them to arm themselves). Rumors and paranoia run rampant as Tuvok tries to investigate the increasing number of assaults, but when B'Elanna and Chakotay become the next victims, these worries seem well founded. Tuvok's obsessive quest to solve the crime wave ultimately leads him to conclude that he himself is the prime suspect.

Notes
This episode is a social commentary on HMOs and our health system.
"The Allocator" is the computer that controls the hospital and calculates the T.C. (Treatment Coefficient) of each patient, which determines which level of treatment they qualify for.
Level Blue is the highest level of care. Level Red is filled with patients who "do not contribute to society." Level White is the morgue.

The crew of the U.S.S. Voyager gets an unexpected bonus in their regular "mail" beamed from Starfleet in the Alpha Quadrant. When a hologram of Reg Barclay appears telling the crew of a new plan that can get them home within days, everyone is elated. The plan seems dangerous in theory, but the Barclay hologram persuades the crew the risk is minimal. Meanwhile, back at Starfleet, the real Reg Barclay is completely unaware of his doppelganger's actions. However, while the crew goes ahead and modifies Voyager to make the trip safely, the Doctor, who has previously met Barclay notices differences in the hologram's behavior and tries to convince Captain Janeway to deactivate the holo-Barclay. Meanwhile, the real Barclay realizes his hologram has been hijacked and re-programmed by a trio of Ferengi. When he learns their motive, Barclay enlists Counselor Deanna Troi's help.

Synopsis
While performing experiments on the Delta Flyer, Seven of Nine, Harry Kim and the Doctor are attacked by a Delta Quadrant race who view "photonics" such as the Doctor as mortal enemies. With time running out, the Doctor must hide in plain sight -- taking refuge in Seven of Nine's Borg implants. Taking over her consciousness, the Doctor must convincingly behave as Seven of Nine to survive. The Doctor's delight in experiencing human sensations, however, clashes with Seven's strict physical and mental disciplines -- and is only exacerbated by romantic advances from the alien captain toward Seven and The Doctor's attraction toward a female alien with whom he works.

While Voyager's warp core is down undergoing extensive maintenance, Harry Kim searches for dilithium in the Delta Flyer with Neelix and Seven of Nine. When a Kraylor ship ostensibly on a humanitarian mission is brutally attacked by the warring Annari, Harry Kim intercedes in the conflict between the two Delta Quadrant races. Kim is granted permission to take the helm of the cripped vessel and, with the assistance of Seven of Nine, help her on her voyage home. Kim's new position, however, goes to his head, and he finds himself learning a lesson in leadership while under the Annari guns.

The U.S.S. Voyager answers a distress call from a Hirogen training facility, only to find a holographic environment littered with Hirogen corpses. The holographic technology given to the Hirogen by Captain Janeway for hunting training has been modified to the point where the prey have become the hunters. The holograms have not only become self-aware, but are essentially a new race, seeking refuge from "organic" slavery and brutality. Seeking to liberate one of "their own," the holograms kidnap the Doctor, who soon finds himself torn between his loyalties to Voyager and his holographic brethren.

The Doctor's holonovel is titled "Photons Be Free", and features a highly unflattering portrayal of the Voyager crew.
In the holonovel, you play an oppressed EMH doctor onboard the Starship Vortex, who is treated badly by Captain Jenkins, Commander Katanay (a Bajoran), Lt. Cmdr. Tulack, Lt. Marseilles, Ensign Kimble (a Trill), and Lt. Torrey. The only character who is sympathetic is "Three of Eight", who is in love with the EMH.
Roxann Dawson appears without her Klingon makeup as Lt. Torrey.
The Federation Arbitrator is unwilling to grant the Doctor rights as a person, but does agree that he has the right to have his original work recalled.

While travelling in a shuttle to the planet Ledos for a conference on Warp Field Dynamics, Chakotay and Seven of Nine take a detour to admire the natural landscape of one of the planet's subcontinents, and in doing so they scrape a mysterious energy barrier that starts to break the shuttle apart. Seven uses phasers to open a rift in the barrier, and they beam to the surface before the shuttle explodes. They find themselves stranded in a lush jungle, and in spite of Chakotay's leg injury, set out to find the shuttle debris in hopes of constructing a beacon to send a distress signal. They discover a tribe of primitive humanoids protected by the energy barrier. Meanwhile, Tom Paris commits a piloting violation and must take a three-day course in flight safety.

Synopsis
Upon her return from a deep-space mission, Janeway startles Chakotay with her plans to hand over the ship's warp core to the R'Kaal collective. The Captain's willingness to part with such a crucial piece of Voyager's technology without a fight disturbs Chakotay, who turns to the Doctor for help. The hologram insists that Janeway is mentally sound. Chakotay, though, remains skeptical, and soon has even more reason to question her actions.

Notes
Two-Hour Series Finale.
The beginning of the episode takes place on the 10th anniversary of Voyager's return to Earth. The journey took 23 years and they lost 22 crew members, including Seven.
In the future, Janeway is an admiral. Barclay is a Commander and an instructor at the Academy. Harry is captain of the U.S.S. Rhode Island.
Back in "present day" Voyager, Neelix appears in an on-screen communication to play a game of kodis-kot with Seven. Seven and Chakotay have started a real romance.
Admiral Janeway brings transphasic torpedoes and ablative armor to the present. They add the armor generators to the hull.
Alice Krige played the Borg Queen in the motion picture Star Trek: First Contact (Susanna Thompson had played the Borg Queen in all previous Voyager episodes).
The last line spoken in this episode is the same as the last line in the premiere, spoken by Janeway: "Set a course... for home."
This episode won two 2001 Emmy Awards, for Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Outstanding Music Composition.
