    Summary

    We press against the throbbing artery in her neck with the very same digits that could easily assimilate and forever terminate her individuality in mere seconds — but she stares at us calmly as we measure her pulse. The rate of her heartbeat does not increase; her breath does not quicken; her muscles do not tense underneath our fingertips; her eyes do not indicate dread or apprehension at our contact. She is unafraid. And we are profoundly impressed.

    We know then with certainty that the Collective has never met an entity quite like this Captain Kathryn Janeway.

    Alternate take on Scorpion: Parts I and II. Instead of Seven coming to Voyager, Janeway is forced to stay on the cube to finish the weapons build.

    An exploration of individualism, heavily inspired by “Anthem.”

    Summary

    This is not the story of a Borg chasing a starship Captain, or of a Captain fighting her feelings for a crewmember, or of a crew adjusting to and/or encouraging the relationship between its Captain and an ex-Borg. This is the story of what happens when everybody has gotten their act together and the only thing that goes wrong is a Captain expects less of a certain Borg than she should and gets much, much more than she bargained for in return.

    Summary

    “You are awake.”

    “Yes.” Kathryn's reply was listless and a little further away than Seven would have liked. This drone has known horror, terror and regret. This drone does not wish those feelings for you. She leaned down, wrapping her arms and a portion of the sheet around Kathryn, and folded her in close against her own body heat. This drone can offer comfort. Support. Security. Seven let the silence that followed extend, wrapping that too into her embrace until she felt Kathryn returning to herself from that far away place she sometimes drifted to at night. Gradually, Kathryn spoke to her.

    “I don't... I just-I can't...”

     

    The broken quality of her speech made Seven want to bodily destroy what ever doubt was plaguing her. While a satisfying idea, it is ultimately futile. Conversation is more productive. When Kathryn didn't continue, just buried her face into the crook of Seven's elbow, Seven spoke instead.
