Steven Vroonland at the Prime Directive sends along word that, besides the cast & crew info we reported about yesterday, the official Star Trek site has also put up synopses for the first four episodes of next season. The 'Unimatrix Zero, Part Two' and 'Critical Care' synopses were already included in StarTrek.com news items before, but here are the summaries of the other two episodes:
Seven of Nine shows some emotion when three of the four Borg children leave the U.S.S. Voyager, but the Doctor confirms that she may have malfunctioning ocular implants. The remaining young Borg, Icheb, then decides that he would like to join Starfleet Academy. When Seven later admits to suffering from some headaches, it is discovered that she needs a critical operation requiring Borg parts. However, it may be that the young Borg, Icheb, is the only one who can help her.
While Tom Paris and Harry Kim are performing tests on the new Delta Flyer, they encounter a mysterious pilot who challenges them to a race. The woman, Irina, later informs them of an upcoming starship race. Soon, the Starfleet officers find themselves involved in this race-an event intended as the first step towards peace between four different cultures from this area of space. But one of the racers is determined to sabotage the goodwill of the event.
