YATI : Okay, I can accept that Picard wanted the maximum number of people on the planet's surface to search for Data. But it still makes no sense that he be one of those searching! For example, suppose Picard switched places with the young man on the bridge. There would be just as many people searching for Data, yet the Captain would be on the bridge where he belongs.
Great Moment : Data trying to reproduce his angry moment by killing holoborg over and over.
Body Count : Uncertain - several Borg at least, plus one officer killed by the borg on the colony/station, another when they beam onto the bridge and another when they enter the Borg "sanctuary".
Factoid : Stephen Hawking asked if he could have a scene in one of TNG's episodes whilst on a visit to the set. He also asked to be taken from his wheelchair, something he rarely does in public, so he could sit in the Captain's chair.
Quote : "I got angry." - Data to Riker

Plotline

Whatever happened to Hugh the borg from episode 121? Watch and see in one of the silliest Borg epsiodes ever.
