In their search for species worthy of assimilation, the Borg encountered a non-humanoid species called the Undine, also know by their Borg designation as Species 8472. The Borg send multiple ships into their realm, the fluidic space, in year 2373.
However, Species 8472 proved immune to assimilation and the invasion of their realm provoked a war; according to Seven of Nine, Species 8472 was the first species to offer "true resistance to the Borg" in their long history. With their superior biological technology, Species 8472 pushed back the Borg and launched a counter-invasion of the galaxy, annihilating at least one Unimatrix, billion of Borg drones, hundred of ships and even entire planets.

Ah yes, Species 8472, wish they would join the Federation, then the Borg would never be a threat to anyone in the Galaxy ever again.
"Resistance in this case is far from futile"

Great work!

Thanks!
It was the shortest teaser intro in Star Trek history. And one of the most impressive.

I remember that story line from Voyager. Nothing like seeing the Borg get their ass kicked. :) Nice artwork!

Yep, Voyager was the weakest Trek Show. Voyager had a very inconstitent writing. The different script writers changed the direction of the show and the character plots one time too often. Problem was it seems nothing had consequences. They shooting torpedos, and lost shuttles like they can hop to the next starbase and get a couple new one. Most of the characters doesnt change during the seven years. Harry Kim, still a ensign. Chakotay, still the same guy as seven years before.

But compared to Disco, i still prefer Voyager. ;-)

Why were they not named "The Grob" it's "Borg" spelled backwards and they are the complete opposite of the Borg as well.

Yes, this were one of the better episodes of Voyager.

I loved it because Species 8472 could not be assimilated.  The Borg met their match, so to speak.

Resistance is Useless ?
