||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.
||Michael Pillar dubbed this episode "everything I want Star Trek to be".
||"Because it's been given a name by a member of my crew doesn't mean it's not a Borg. Because it's young doesn't mean that it's innocent." - Picard to Guinan on Hugh.
