Seven of Nine, the Borg drone that Voyager severed from the collective, tries to resist as her natural human physiology tries to regenerate. It's up to Captain Janeway to convince her to embrace her humanity and join the Voyager crew. Meanwhile, Kes' telekinetic powers grow to such a point that she can no longer control them. In order to prevent Voyager from being destroyed, she decides she must leave the ship.

Up until the moment when Seven fully realizes her isolation from the Collective, she generally refers to herself as "this drone" or "we/us", which is typical for a Collective-bound Borg. However, just after being awoken at the beginning, she accidentally says, "*I* can't hear the others", and later, when revived in sickbay, "What have you done to *me*?" See more
