That year he fought in a blue match against Seven of Nine in her debut to the game. Upon viewing Seven, he noted her size, describing her as being "no bigger than a Tarkanian field mouse" and felt that "Penk's insulting me by putting you in the pit to face me." Throughout the contest, he continued to mock and insult Seven, before finally defeating her, when he saw that she hesitated.
After losing the match, Penk explained Seven that "there's a great deal of hostility toward the Borg in this sector. Every time the Pendari landed a blow, our audience grew." He then informed her that he was scheduling her for a red match in two days, noting the Pendari was supposed to compete, but that he had entered her in his place. Penk added "if three billion people paid to see you hurt, imagine how many will pay to see you die." (VOY: "Tsunkatse")
After Neelix' contact with the Norcadian ambassador, regarding the capture and recruitment of Seven of Nine (and Tuvok) to fight in Tsunkatse matches, Neelix learned that "a huge percentage of the planet's revenue comes from Tsunkatse," and that "nobody wants to do anything that might interfere with the game."

Female fighter Edit
This female fighter took part in the Tsunkatse matches in the Delta Quadrant when Seven of Nine and Tuvok were held prisoners by Penk, the fight coordinator. She trained with another opponent in the quarters and fought a match against a Kradin. (VOY: "Tsunkatse")
