Stardate not given: Seven of Nine installs a new piece of equipment in her Borg alcove which allows her to assimilate data, log entries, records, and other information while she regenerates. But the overload of information is too much for her. At first, Seven is able to solve complex but obscure shipboard problems using information she has assimilated overnight. But then, still trying to process the enormous flow of data, Seven begins to formulate complex conspiracy theories concerning Voyager’s mission, and she begins to make accusations – that Janeway intentionally stranded Voyager in the Delta Quadrant as part of a secret Federation plot to secure strategic alliances across the galaxy; that Chakotay and the other Maquis deliberately led Voyager into a trap set by their ally, the Caretaker; and that even Naomi Wildman is working for either the Maquis or Janeway’s secret organization within the Federation. By the time Janeway realizes what has happened and attempts to help, Seven has hijacked the Delta Flyer to escape what she can only see as a massive conspiracy to destroy one person…herself.
