After Janeway finishes trade negotiations with Kovin for an isokinetic cannon, Seven of Nine experiences panic attacks that appear to stem from blocked memories of Kovin recently violating her. Kovin vehemently denies this; and, as his culture depends on trade with aliens, an investigation, even were it to prove him innocent, would permanently stigmatize him within his society. Unfortunately, evidence remains inconclusive. Kovin flees, but whether it's to hide something or to protect something remains unclear, and the validity of Seven's emotional memory comes into question, too. Written by statmanjeff

Seven of Nine: What do you see?

Seven of Nine: It doesn't matter. Kovin is guilty.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Seven, there's no doubt in my mind that you believe what you're saying. But is it possible... just possible... that the memories ...

Poor writing
14 January 2009 | by nilsson_andersSee all my reviews

This is one of my least favourite episodes of Voyager, almost as bad as The Thaw. The fundamental problem with the episode is that at no point does it make it clear to the viewer that Seven's memories are false. In the episode the case against Seven's story grows increasingly stronger but all of a sudden everyone changes their minds with no explanations at all for where Seven's memories came from or why she had them.

As much as I may agree with the fundamental premise, that the testimony of abused people should not always be taken at face value, the episode would have done much more to serve this view if it had offered up an alternative explanation to Seven's memories, something they instead gloss over.
