I, Borg

Review

Series : The Next Generation Rating : 5
Disc No : 5.5 Episode : 122
First Aired : 11 May 1992 Stardate : 45854.2
Director : Robert Lederman Year : 2368
Writers : Rene Echevarria Season : 5
Guest Cast :
Jonathan Del Arco as Third of Five / Hugh
Joyce Robinson as Ensign Gates
Lorine Mendell as Diana Giddings
Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan
Moral :
Borg : You can take the individual out of the Borg and you can even take the Borg out of the individual.
YATI : When beaming down, Riker orders Crusher to beam down and he asks her to bring a medical team, but she doesn't.

Also, Picard is amazed when Hugh gives up his "we" and "us" speech and finally says "I". Yet one of the first thing Hugh says after coming aboard is "Do I have a name?"

Great Moment : Picard pushing Hugh into rebelling against the Borg. It's a wonderful scene, and the moment when Hugh recognises Locutus and Picard goes along with it is chilling.
Body Count : Several Borg are killed in the crash.
Factoid : Michael Pillar dubbed this episode "everything I want Star Trek to be".

Plotline
