||Our first sight of the Borg, now that has to be something. It seems as though the writers had not quite decided where to go with them yet - where's "you will be assimilated, resistance is futile"? Still, they are a great concept, and it provided us with something genuinely scary. That great, menacing cube hanging over the Enterprise will stay with me for a long time. Guinan comes accross very well here, from her dislike of Q to her looking in horror out of the window at the cube. Picard's attitude seems a bit strange, a bit too arrogant, and Q (who I usually don't like) highlighted that very well, right up to the point where Picard had to swallow his pride and ask Q for help. A minor point, they mentioned that photon torpedoes were dangerous to the launch platform if they detonated too close, surely accurate if 'isoton' really does mean 'megaton'. Perhaps not the very best, but certainly the best TNG episode up to this point.
