[VOY] Season 4, Episode 1: Scorpion, Part II
Scorpion Part 2 is kind of about wrapping up Part 1’s storyline, but mostly the episode goes to a lot of effort to get Seven of Nine to stick around. There’s a lot of plot for plot’s sake, and not a whole lot of tension. I don’t know, you should watch it for continuity, at least.

The Doctor continued to work on the nano probes that can kill species 8472. He uses them to save Harry.
Kes does some singing warm ups.
The Borg think it would be easier to communicate with Janeway and Tuvok if they temporarily link with them. Janeway suggests using a Borg representative like in that episode of TNG you may have heard of.
Which means Seven of Nine I guess!
They argue a lot.
Species 8472 learns about Voyager’s plan through reading Kes’ mind
Species 8472 attacks. The Borg cube sacrifices itself to save Voyager
The Borg beamed over Janeway, Tuvok, 7 of 9 and a hand full of drones over to Voyager before the cube was destroyed.
Janeway is seriously injured. She tells Chakotay not to screw things up.
So Chakotay gets down to doing what he does best – screwing things up. It isn’t actually that ridiculous of a position – he doesn’t want to take the five days to meet up with another Borg cube, so he breaks the alliance… well ok, maybe it’s not that great of a plan.
Obviously the Borg have other plans.
The Borg modify the deflector dish to open some portal?
Chakotay releases the Borg out into space. Only 7 of 9 survives.
Voyager gets sucked into the portal. It takes them to where species 8472 live. It’s some kind of goo dimension or something.
Janeway gets better, and she’s understandably not that happy.
They proceed with making the weapons to destroy species 8472
We get a tiny bit more into species 8472’s motives. They like purity and the Borg came into their space and messed things up or something, don’t worry about it, it doesn’t matter.
Voyager launches some of their super torpedoes and it destroys Species 8472’s ships.
Voyager goes back through the portal
Voyager destroys more ships. 7 of 9 gets word from the collective that species 8472 retreats back into their own space.
But then 7 of 9 says the alliance is over and tries to assimilate Voyager.
But then Janeway gives the code word to Chakotay to plug himself into her mind. He tries to appeal to her humanity, but it doesn’t work.
B’Elanna does a thing and then Seven is disconnected from the collective.
