Stardate not given: Seven of Nine begins spending a great deal of time in the holodeck, simulating various social situations. But outside the holodeck, she is still her old self, showing no signs of her recent “practice” and still making every effort to avoid most shipboard social gatherings, including the baby shower for Tom and B’Elanna. But when massive energy discharges begin to explode in Voyager’s path, threatening the ship and its crew, there isn’t time for pleasantries anyway. Despite that, Seven continues spending every free moment on her “research,” even opting to forego regenerating in her Borg alcove in favor of social simulations which are taking on a personal and even romantic dimension (including a simulation of a relationship with Chakotay). But is she ignoring more pressing duties that could help the crew escape its current predicament?
