Kes' growing mental powers are becoming a threat to the safety of Voyager and she realises it too. She decides to leave Voyager to continue exploring her abilities. Meanwhile, Seven of Nine is having trouble letting go of her Borg identity and adjusting to being on her own. The character development of Seven is critical to the series going forward and she is a great character thankfully.
This episode is a final farewell to the 'old' Voyager with this episode and a welcome to the 'new' one. We bid goodbye to Kes and say hello to Seven in her newly revealed human form, free (or almost free) of her Borg traits.
