♦ Jeri Ryan turned down the role of Seven of Nine four times. She only accepted the part after repeated lobbying by executive producer Jeri Taylor.
♦ While at Dragon Con, Jeri Ryan and Garrett Wang revealed that each would often try to sneak up on the other and smack the other on the butt. Garret claims that Jeri was much better at the game than he was.
♦ Jeri Ryan hated Seven of Nine’s catsuit so much that after the series wrapped, she burned it.
♦ Seven of Nine’s corset was so constricting, Jeri Ryan had to lie down between takes in order to catch her breath.
• Fun will now commence.
• You will be assimilated.
• You would deny us the choice as you deny us now. You have imprisoned us in the name of humanity yet you will not grant us your most cherished human right – to choose our own fate. You are hypocritical, manipulative. We do not want to be what you are. Return us to the Collective!
• Perhaps there’s something to be said for assimilation after all.
• Comforting words. Use them next time instead of “resistance is futile”. You may elicit a few volunteers.
• “Impossible” is a word that humans use far too often.
• Two hours, thirty seven minutes, thirteen seconds. […] That’s how long we’ve gone without verbal communication. […] The doctor encourages me to engage in conversation during awkward silences.
• [examining the clothing the Doctor chose for her] I am unfamilliar with how to wear such a garment.
• Your appeal to my humanity is pointless.
• You are individuals. You are small and you think in small terms.
• I understand the concept of humor. It may not be apparent but I am often amused by human behavior.
• [to Janeway] Your attempts to assimilate this drone will fail. You can alter our physiology but you cannot change our nature. We will betray you. We are Borg.
