Synopsis - When sensors suddenly display nothing except "omega", the last letter of the Greek alphabet, Janeway must contemplate what to do about the highly dangerous Omega Molocule. Meanwhile Seven, who knows about Omega from the Borg and assimilated Starfleet captains, tries to convince Janeway to harness Omega, rather than destroy it.

The Omega Directive asks the question "what rules, or more appropriately, what guiding directives do you bend or break, when you're 65 years away from home and all alone?". Janeway, as any other Starfleet captain was informed of Omega, and what to do if she encountered it. The only problem was that she was prohibited from carrying out those orders, due to her distance from home, and her support system, namely Starfleet Command. The other thing she had to contend with was Seven's wish to contain Omega. The odds were very high, that Seven's idea would work, but was the fact that it was not a 100% sure thing justifiable to put the entire galaxy at risk?

Notable Flaw: In Seven's log entry at the beginning of the show, she slips up on the Stardate saying "15781.2", instead of "51781.2"; which if taken literally, would place the episode 36 years in the past; something I don't believe to be too likely.
