Did You Know?


The storyline involving The Doctor, Seven and Tom is based on the 1913 play "Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw and its 1956 musical adaptation "My Fair Lady", with the Doctor as Henry Higgins and Seven as Eliza Doolittle. See more »


Even in the 24th century inter-galactic travel is beyond the abilities of the Federation. So an image looking back on the "Milky Way" would be impossible. During the doctors talk with Seven about sexuality, he shows an image he calls "The Milky Way". See more »


Tomin: Who is that extraordinary female?
Neelix: Seven of Nine.
Tomin: I want to meet her.
Neelix: Take a number.

Sweet Episode
7 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Yes, it is an intergalactic "My Fair Lady." The doctor has been teaching Seven social integration. She is, of course, quite a challenging student. He decides it's time for her to start dating. So she chooses a shy man from engineering and asks him out. Of course, it is an utter disaster. But as this happens, the Doc (Henry Higgins) begins to feel a romantic attraction for our Borg bombshell. Jeri Ryan is perfection in her role. She connects with him, but we have to remember that her circuitry works differently. She admires her successes but doesn't quite cross the threshold. There are some seriously touching scenes. Meanwhile, a subplot is the adventures of a young man from a sterile planetary society going bonkers when he finally gets to spread his wings, overeating, overindulging, and carrying on in general. Neelix almost has a heart attack tracking the guy.
