The infamous scene from the "killing game part 1", the Janeway/7of9 subtext is glorious!
Edit: Okay here some explanations on the subtext:
In the episode titled "The Killing Game, Part I" the crew thinks it is living in Nazi-occupied France and Captain Janeway becomes the owner of a nightclub where it is implied, but again never developed, that she is romantically involved with Seven of Nine.
More explanation from myself: It was woven in in a brilliant subtle way...as is generally known (or not) Janeway was "Humphrey Bogart" in this episode, and Seven was the "Lauren Bacall" type. Not just the dresses suggest that. Killing Game plays in 1944. Exactly in that year Bogart and Bacall met and fell in love. And Bacall got famous overnight with one percormance. That's only a parallel of many.
Now let's get to the intro in which Seven sings "It can't be wrong" from Dick Haymes (here the lyrics):
"Wrong, would it be wrong to kiss, (closeup on Seven - would it be WRONG to kiss?)
Seeing I feel like this?,
Would it be wrong to try?, (lesbian innuendo en masse)
Wrong, would it be wrong to stay,
Here in your arms this way?,
Under the starry sky, (voyager on its long travel through the universe)
If it is wrong, then why were you sent to me?, (camera turns to JANEWAY who walks in, she was sent to Seven you could say)
(also a look on the bigpicture, Janeway was sent to Seven to rescue her from the Borg)
Why am I content to be, With you forever?, (while Seven sings, camera lingers on Janeway...)
So, when I need you so much,
And I have waited so long, (yeah...lol)
It must be right, It can't be wrong"
And you never know what else could have happened on the holodeck, because the crew members themselves don't remember either after they woke up.
And of course above all these things: the glances, the atmosphere etc. *sighs* ...it's awful that I still have to explain J/7 to people ;)!
