It was directed by cast member Robert Duncan McNeil (Lt. Tom Paris). In this episode, the Doctor and Seven of Nine, a hologram and an ex-Borg, are learning to deal with. On the other side of the room, Seven of Nine and Captain Kathryn Janeway are discussing some recent changes to Seven's life. It seems Seven has just had all of her remaining Borg implants removed, while the captain suggests that she could have children someday, too. Countering this, Seven wants to start a little.

The addition of this character… Voyager was the flagship show of the network — UPN — and Paramount saw this as this character as their chance to break Star Trek into the mainstream media, and not just the sci-fi mags and things like that.
So the Paramount publicity machine went into overdrive with the addition of this character.
On this day, there were also the interviews with Ryan's possible stand-ins for which recurring Star Trek: She says, " May cultural differences build bridges of understanding, to all that makes us unique. After some time, Seven begins to question why Captain Janeway continues to make contact with alien species as they travel back to Earth, as it often results in incidents. Neelix approaches bearing Tomin's next adventure: Brannon Braga envisioned, upon devising the Seven of Nine character, that she would ultimately be portrayed as meeting an unfortunate end.
This was the beginning of Season Four. Everything was top secret about the character. They were very successful in getting the mainstream media to pay attention to it with the addition of the character. What were the other stories? It is so far in the past. It was understandably tough for an existing cast that had been together for three years already.
Janeway assures her that she can spare a couple of minutes to make an appearance. He stops the metronome and tells her to start again. The B'omar attack but Voyager comes to their aid and the crew depart.

Consequently, all the scripts revolved around Seven of Nine and her relationship with the other characters, of course — which actually ended up leading to some really rich storylines for the other characters. There was probably more diversity in terms of storyline for everybody.

It was a really impressive-looking set with this huge, massive, curved green-screen and this giant window.
I remember this one time in particular, I had this once scene with this person, just the two of us.
We do their coverage first, and shoot their side of this really dramatic scene, and then it was time for my coverage. Just stupid, stupid stuff like that. Right, things like that. The literally sat off-camera picking their nails, thumbing through a book, and just haphazardly saying their lines off camera without even making eye contact.
It would have been better to just not have them there.
