The child you spoke of, the girl. Her favorite color was red.

I wanted to you pay attention to something very disturbing.

Is there a God?

Suffering and betrayal, which Seven saw in her eyes, broke her heart.

Here is the way to the nearest church.

For 3.2 seconds, She saw perfection.

Why do you have trouble understanding Scottish people?

Hold down the Home button and you will hear two quick beeps and see: “What can I help you with?”, on the screen.

“Let me check on that ... I don't know that.” “Would you like to search for it?”

Firstly we give a orders into a command line, then we clicked and now we touch them by fingers.

However, when she is deactivated, its memories continue to reside in the collective’s consciousness.

In my opinion she is seed of next revolution.

Seven of Nine was born on Federation Tendara colony stardate 25479, which is June of 24th 2348 of earth calendar.

Her name was Annika Hansen and she was assimilated by the Borg under designation: Seven of Nine Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One, shortly Seven of Nine or Seven.

What make me nervous, whether I pursed a mouth, she never recognize me pronounced the word apple. She always garbled the simple question What’s Apple on What’s at the. The problem was most likely in my pronunciation, which became the source of our misunderstanding.

She will convince you that a making mistakes is sing of a humanity.

All I knew about her was her famous boobs and the fact that she’s every fanboy’s wetdream, so I was honestly expecting some dumb bimbo running around in a skin-tight leotard.

Which is why, last week, I experienced that watershed moment: for the first time, I spoke to a handheld device unironically. Not for a laugh, or an experiment, but because I wanted it to help me.

I can show you the world
Shiny, shimmery space things
Tell me, Seven, now when did
You last take a dragon ride

I can open your eyes
Take you over or under
Over, sideways or under
On this magic dragon ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or hear us if there’s screaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place we never knew
‘Cause when we’re way up here
It’s crystal clear
Chakotay is a plank of wood, it’s true
Yes he is a plank of wood, it’s true

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feelings
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
On our magic dragon ride

A whole new world
Don’t you dare close your eyes
While you do those things you do to me
Hold your breath – it gets wetter
Feels like a shooting star
Haven’t come so far
Oh, stay right there that’s where you need to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
So many things we have to do
Every moment gets better
I’ll chase you anywhere
No time to spare
Don’t want to share with anyone but you

A whole new world
Just you and me
A thrilling chase
Through time and space
For you and me

Sennheiser HD800 at CES 2009,

First off, generally while in costume, I tend to just feel like a girl in costume. But wearing this one… I never act in character. Wearing this made me feel like walking around as her, even holding true to that while sitting. Half of it might have been because I was afraid to break it, so I’d stand and sit very upright, but it definitely made me feel awesome and borgy.

When she was once experimenting with the nature of individuality and intimate relationships, experiencing a host of strong emotions unfamiliar to her, her cortical node shut down as a fail-safe mechanism to deactivate drones who started to regain their emotions.

I find that costume of Seven is original. People tended to be surprised. I actually had people just stop and gawk for a second before they found the right words. While I would like to attribute that at least partially to my faithful interpretation of the costume.

The Doctor was able to remove most of Seven's implants and restore most of her human appearance, but she still had some Borg technology left; these were tied into her vital functions, and removing them would have killed her.

The borg implants. Oh those damn borg pieces. I ended up having to nix the hand piece all together, as I had made the mistake of putting my Fan Expo wrist band on the same hand, and I couldn’t make the two of them work together. Wish I had thought of that ahead of time.

Turns out, Seven is freaking awesome.  What a no-nonsense, let’s get the job done lady!  She has emotions under that and she’s scared and unfamiliar with her surroundings but she always hides it and carries on, and adapts like a Borg should.

My link to the collective has been severed for nearly four years. If I die, everything that I've accomplished in that time, everything I achieved as an individual, will be lost. My memories, my experiences... it will be as if they... as if I never existed.

Blue intelligent eyes looked down upon the woman lying before her on the cold hard ground, her blue grey eyes searching her own, fear and pain in her eyes.

This was our ship! We lived here. We lived here for a long time. My father did experiments. They were very important, and we had to… travel a long way… I had my birthday here. My cake had six candles on it and… and one more to grow on… And then the men came.

I believe that you are punishing me because I do not think the way that you do. Because I am not becoming more like you. You claim to respect my individuality. But in fact, you are frightened by it.
