26 episodes on 7 DVDs. 1997-98/color/19 hrs/NR/fullscreen.
For many fans, Voyager hit its peak in the fourth season, due in no small part to a certain former Borg drone named Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 0-1, but you can call her Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan). Following the season 3 cliffhanger "Scorpion," the crew enters an unlikely alliance with the Borg against Species 8472, led by Seven of Nine, who ends up restoring (mostly) her human roots and trying to assimilate herself among Voyager's crew all the time feeling the pull of the Collective and resisting the mother-hen attempts of Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew). While Seven's curvaceous figure and skin-tight uniform certainly won over many fans, she was helped by a commanding presence, good writing ("So you wish to copulate?" was a classic line), and a stage that was cleared for her by the coinciding departure of one of the most prominent characters of the series.
Other significant developments of the season included the actors' getting to stretch themselves out "Mirror, Mirror"-like as evil counterparts in "Living Witness" (also Tim Russ's directing debut), the time- and mind-bending two-parter "Year of Hell," a battle with 1940s Nazis in the two-part "The Killing Game," the Doctor's comedic sparring with a new rival in "Message in a Bottle," the Alien-like "Prey," and Tom Paris (Robert Duncan MacNeill) taking a personal step and switching bodies with an alien in "Vis a Vis."
The DVD set offers the usual 20-minute season overview, crew profiles of Seven of Nine (natch) and Harry Kim (both of whom show warm appreciation for the Trek crowd), features on Species 8472 and the art of matte painting, and episode spotlights. --David Horiuchi

Very good episode. Great acting by all. They shafted Jennifer Lien but thankfully Jeri Ryan is a superb actress.
She's so young here, too, very sexy. Quite the bombshell.
All of these remarks, by the way, illustrate the problem: Jeri is just too sexual for this role. Not her fault; it's what nature gave her. Jennifer Lien, herself was hot, and a great actress, as well. They should have kept her.
But as always it's about keeping the advertiser cash rolling in, one of the many flaws of capitalism, which they can do more effectively with more eyeballs glued to the screen, which the presence of Jeri Ryan, especially in the lurid way they present her in the show, apparently does.
The Addition Of The Character Seven of Nine: Seven of Nine is a female Borg drone who came to the series in the episode Scorpion Part II. Seven of Nine was assimilated into the Borg collective at the age of six so that's all she knows. In the mentioned episode Seven of Nine was among several Borg drones who came aboard Voyager as a result of an alliance to fight a common enemy-Species 8472. It became apparent to Commander Chakotay, who was in command when Captain Janeway was incapacitated due to an injury, that the Borg drones was working against Voyager. With that he ordered an airlock opened which sent the Borg drones into space. Seven of Nine managed not to get sent out into space. In time her link to the collective would get severed forcing her to deal with becoming an individual apart from the Borg collective. The remainder of the season and the series has her working on her regaining her humanity as well as working as a Voyager crewmember. Seven of Nine is to Voyager what Mr. Spock was to the orginal series and what Data was to Star Trek The Next Generation
Kes Departs: In the episode The Gift Kes will depart. She does this because her telepathic powers was growing and it got to a point where her being on Voyager was endangering the ship and crew. So she would leave Voyager but she would use her power to move Voyager some 10,000 light years closer to the Alpha Quadrant. This brings Voyager 10 years closer to home.
Voyager Makes Contact With Starfleet: In the episode Message In A Bottle Seven of Nine is able to detect a Starfleet vessle in the Alpha Quadrant through a network of alien relay stations. Attempts to contact the ship fail. So the doctors program is sent. The doctor makes it to the vessle only to find that it had been taken over by Romulans. The doctor along with that ships EMH would retake the ship. With that the Doctor would pass on to Starfleet Voyager's status and whereabouts. The episode ends with Captain Janeway stating that now 60,000 light years doesn't seem so far. Other episodes do have Voyager and Voyager crew in contact with Starfleet officials and family members.
I do want to mention a character who is up and coming: Naomi Wildman. She was born during Season One and she is mixed race: human/ktarian. The latter race grows and matures sooner and faster than humans. With that she has grown and she is seen in several episodes. She is a sweetheart. She is seen interacting with the crew in her play and with the serious part of her schooling. In one episode she spends time with Seven of Nine where Seven of Nine helps Naomi with her learning and Naomi teaches Seven of Nine how to play a game. Naomi will eventually have a position on Voyager: Captains Assistant.
It would take me time to watch all the episodes but watch the I did. The discs played with no problem and I did get the item at a good price. It was on sale. This season however does not end with a two part cliffhanger like the past three seasons. Also I must add that I would have the item in a timely manner. Like all my other orders I used the no cost Super Saver shipping. Again good job.
