Technologically advanced, the Hirogen have shown themselves capable of defeating an injured member of Species 8472. They were encountered by the crew of the USS Voyager in 2374, when the ship accessed a Hirogen controlled communications array in order to transmit its EMH to the Beta quadrant. A Hirogen hunting vessel subsequently captured Lieutenant Commander Tuvok and Seven of Nine. Voyager was able to free the two crewmembers, and was also able to use the array to recieve over a hundred messages from Starfleet command.
Several weeks after this incident the Hirogen
captured the USS Voyager itself. They greatly extended the holodecks and
forced the crew to participate in a variety of combat-related scenarios,
including one set during World War II. Eventually the Voyager crew were
able to force a stalemate with the Hirogen, and a ceasefire was agreed.
The Hirogen agreed to leave the ship in return for Holodeck technology;
they hope to use this in order to allow themselves to continue the traditions
of the hunt without spreading themselves unduly across the quadrant, so
reversing their recent decline.
