To The Journey 97: Creepy Maternal Figure / by Charlynn Schmiedt

The Borg Queen.

She is the beginning, the end, the one who is many. After she was unveiled in Star Trek: First Contact, it seemed inevitable that the Borg Queen would make an appearance on an episode, or several, of Voyager. And make an appearance she did. In this episode of To The Journey, Charlynn and Tristan dig beyond the Borg Queen's presence on Voyager and ponder her origin, discuss the elements that shaped the character, and speculate on how exactly one being controls a Collective of billions and keeps it all together.
