"...So the scorpion climbed up on his back and the fox began to swim. But half-way across the river, the scorpion stung the fox. As the poison filled his veins, the fox turned to the scorpion and said, `Why di you do that? Now you'll drown too.' `I couldn't help it," said the scorpion. `It's my nature.'"

"Scorpion, Part 1" - As they approach the heart of dangerous Borg territory, the Voyager crew witnesses the near decimation of a Borg armada by a mysterious alien lifeform which is impervious to both Borg and Starfleet technology. When Kim and Chakotay lead an Away Team inside the heavily damaged Borg cube, they are able to investigate the alien lifeform's bio-ship. Moments before they are transported out, Kim is viciously attacked by the mysterious organic-looking alien. As he lies in Sickbay, contaminated with alien cells and transforming into an alien being, Kes has terrorizing premonitions about the new enemy and Janeway realizes it's no longer the Borg they must be worried about, on the season finale of "Star Trek: Voyager" airing WEDNESDAY, MAY 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m.,ET/PT) on UPN. John Rhys-Davies ("Raiders of the Lost Ark") guest stars.

Please note: This is a two-part episode. The conclusion will launch the new season of "Star Trek: Voyager" next Fall.

While Ensign Kim fights for his life, a conflicted Janeway grapples with the decision of either guiding her crew through the dangerous Borg territory which is lined with a new mortal enemy or turning around and ending all hope of ever getting home.
