This episode is alright I guess. Species 8472 or whatever continues to be pretty boring, and unarguably dated. The Hirogen aren’t very compelling either. They’re like Predator from Predator, but don’t look as cool and are a lot more talky. There are some lasting consequences to some of 7 of 9’s actions during this episode, which is kind of nice, even if it isn’t super well articulated. It makes sense though, since 7 of 9 has filling the role of a starfleet officer without really acting like one. It was only a matter of time before she did something that couldn’t be ignored by Janeway.

A couple Hirogen gun down a member of species 8472
But when Voyager comes across the two Hirogen, it looks like it eventually got the better of them.
They help the Hirogen, and and then ask him for a hand in catching the 8472 guy.
They butt heads.
Luckily Paris has some really great (bad) jokes to lighten to mood.
When they corner the 8742 thing, the Hirogen won’t stand down, and shoots it until Tuvok stops him.
Tuvok tells Neelix that he needs help with security. This is probably the highest stakes Voyager has ever had. Things have got to be pretty bad if they need Neelix’s help. Or maybe they just thought he should be in a scene.
The species 8274 man telepathically tells Tuvok that he just wants to go home.
The Hirogen have incoming back-up. If Voyager doesn’t hand over the prey, there’s gonna be trouble
Seven agrees with the Hirogen, that they should just hand over the species 8462 so Voyager isn’t at risk. Also she kind of hates species 8427.
Janeway says she’s not turning over species prey 8931.
Somehow the Hirogen guy breaks out of the medical bay.
And the 1984’s species thing breaks through the force field too. Force fields aren’t what they used to be in Star Trek.
Seven disobeys orders and beams both of them aboard a Hirogen ship.
She’s in big trouble.
