about

Seven has two mothers: Janeway and the Borg Queen. Both feel they rescued her, guided her and give her the best example to follow. Her choice not to fully emulate either makes them nemeses, Captain vs Queen.

lyrics

J: She was a child when she was taken
Q: She was a child when she was found
J: All her memories were forgotten
Q: All her memories dragged her down

J: I can restore her humanity
Free her from this atrocity
Q: Silence will threaten her sanity
Wait and see - she’ll come back to me

Seven’s my favourite daughter
I know what’s best
I will protect her
You and your kind
Will be slaughtered
If you stand in the way
Of my favourite daughter

Q: I am a Queen and you’re a Captain
J: Only a queen of mindless drones
Q: I have the strength of untold thousands
J: You have no strength when you’re alone

Q: We are the peak of perfection
Forming a perfect connection
J: You are unnatural selection
Wait and see - she will stay with me

Seven’s my favourite daughter
I know what’s best
I will protect her
You and your kind
Will be slaughtered
If you stand in the way
Of my favourite daughter

Follow in my footsteps, daughter
Follow me and learn
You will choose the right path
You will turn
You will turn
Seven, you’ll turn

You are the only survivor
Both the bridge and the divider
Give me a window inside her
Then wait and see
She will fall to me

You are my favourite daughter
I know what’s best
I will protect you
All of her kind
Will be slaughtered
If she stands in the way

Seven, remember that
You are my favourite daughter
I know what’s best
I will protect you
All of her kind
Will be slaughtered
If she stands in the way

She won’t stand in the way
No one stands in the way
Of my favourite daughter
My favourite daughter

No one stands in the way
Of my daughter but me
