In 2374 Seven of nine was captured and liberated by the friendly intrepid class Voyager (NCC-74656). This spectacular Borg drone was skilfully played by Jeri Ryan in her awesome Starfleet costumes that just made my heart flutter. But Seven, as we got to know her was more than just a piece of skirt. Her cool, indifferent character proved to be a valuable member of Voyager's crew and as she struggled to free her mind from the Collective Hive Mind and regain her individuality something happened.
I truly enjoyed watching Jeri stride across the deckplates all packaged up in her shiny new Voyager outfit but it wasn't that.For the first time in her life, she had to cope without the help of the "other voices" from the unified Borg drones to reassure her. Seven of nine was discovering her human identity and unfettered by her separation, Seven delivered on time and dispensed with formalities in her fiery Borg voice. I guess you could say, Voyager's crew welcomed her into their human starship collective.

Assimilated from an early age of seven in 2355 on the USS Raven, Seven has only vague memories of her earlier life as Annika Hansen. Her human parents were Magnus Hansen and Erin Hansen but they too, were assimilated and put to work by the Borg. For 19 years this unfortunate human lived with various Borg implants and nanoprobes in her system.
Born on Earth in 2348 on the Tendara Colona Colony, she lost her indivuality and became a walking, talking, piece of Borg hardware raised by Borg as Borg. Her full Borg designation is Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One.
Linked to the hive, sevens thoughts became organised and together, her previous family of drones achieved true feats of perfection, assimilating civilisations, without chaos, without emotion or human remorse. The Borg Assimilate, resistance is futile, your existance as you knew it is over. You will become one with the Borg.
Seven of Nines Borg designation was an earful so Captain Janeway suggested " Seven " catchy you might think? Seven, though not impressed, found it acceptable.
Harry Kim found Seven lips acceptable in every way. The Captains paired Seven and Kim together. Kim develops a crush on seven after working with her in the Astrometrics Lab.
Sevens optical implant gives her an edge because she can measure Harry Kims physiological human responses. Kims failing attempts at winning her over lead the Borg to making the first move.
Hardly surprising Ensign Kim abandons any further advances on his secret crush. Garrett Wang admitted in an interview that there is a kissing scene which involves himself and Jeri Ryan.
It was a nice experience, primarily because Jeri and I have really plump lips.
Well, we could see what was going on Garrett! You lucky devil!
