Red Alert! The Borg, am immensely powerful race of mechanically enhanced humanoids, make their first appearance on "Star Trek: Voyager" airing WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on UPN. When the Voyager crew finds a disabled Borg ship adrift in space and discover a thousand members of the powerful Borg race lying dead aboard it, they transport one of the corpses to Sickbay so The Doctor (Robert Picardo, pictured) and Kes (Jennifer Lien, pictured) can perform an autopsy and learn what killed them.

In response to a distress signal, Commander Chakotay lands his shuttlecraft on a planet's surface but is viciously attacked. He's swiftly rescued by a colony of formerly assimilated Borg and goes to extreme measures when he allows their resident physician, Dr. Riley Frazier, to heal his neural injuries by linking him to a remnant of the Borg Collective consciousness.

Meanwhile, after Janeway and her crew find a suspicious Borg ship disabled and adrift in space with a thousand members of the powerful Borg race lying dead aboard it, they transport one of the corpses to Sickbay so the Doctor and Kes can perform an autopsy.
