Stardate 51658.2: Janeway strikes a deal with Kovin, a weapons dealer, to arm Voyager with a powerful isokinetic cannon, and assigns Seven of Nine to assist him with the installation. Seven, however, continues to prove difficult to work with, reacting violently when Kovin tries to correct her during an installation procedure. The Doctor is able to patch Kobin up qucikly, but his examination of Seven is derailed when she displays fear of the Doctor’s medical instruments and biobed enclosure. The Doctor helps her find a hidden memory – which turns out to involve Kovin restraining her, forcing regrowth of her Borg implants, and extracting them from her body. Janeway launches an investigation of Kovin, and he is anything but cooperative, even when evidence is found that supports his story. Is he an innocent man running from an accusation that could ruin him, or does he have something to hide?
