Stardate not given: The Delta Flyer is captured by a Borg cube, and there is no escape for Tom, Chakotay and Neelix. Harry, trying to make adjustments in one of the Flyer’s Jeffries tubes during the attack, is knocked out by an explosion and is left aboard. Voyager catches up with the cube quickly and disarms it with surprising ease. Seven of Nine beams aboard to find that only a handful of drones are running the cube – and all of these drones are no more than adolescents. Despite the skeleton crew aboard the Borg ship, the children take the three Voyager crew members hostage and demand repairs and supplies from Voyager in exchange for their safety. Harry awakens and makes covert contact with Voyager, and Janeway sends him on a mission to sabotage the cube and weaken the Borg children’s position. In the meantime, Seven of Nine attempts to reason with these recently disconnected drones the way that Janeway once reasoned with her.
