Hope vanishes

Mission: Battle Front. Season 2, Episode 2
Location: Borg Cube

Noru saw the panel in front of her light up. “They’ve beamed out,” she said in a weak voice. “They’ve abandoned us.” Fear laced her voice. “They’ve abandoned us,” she repeated.

“I heard you,” T’Pal replied.

Noru could not believe the icy calm from the Vulcan. All hopes of rescue had vanished just as the Federation people had done.

“They were attacked by Species 8472. Beaming out was their only escape route. It was logical that they would take it.”

“Logical. Logical!” Fear was rapidly giving way to abject terror. “Species 8472 will attack us next or, worse, the drones will come and we’ll be assimilated again.”

“Both are distinct possibilities,” T’Pal commented. “I would place a higher probability on the latter as the drones outnumber 8472 and will be trying to hunt them down and kill them. The logical course would be for us to continue what we are doing. If we wrest the Cube from the drones we can use its systems to disable them, especially the ones in their regeneration cycle.”

Noru forced herself to go back to work. Fear still licked at her mind but she found that if she concentrated, she could keep it under some sort of control.
