YATI : When Data brings Geordi back from the experiments, Troi asks him if he is in pain. That is, Troi the empath, who should be able to feel his pain from down the hallway.

So at the end of the episode, Data deactivates Lore and then advises that he be disassembled. Um, what? Starfleet has judged Soong-style androids to be conscious beings with fundamental rights. Lore gets no trial, no opportunity to defend himself... he's simply captured, turned off, and destroyed!
Great Moment : Beverly outwitting the Borg using the metaphasic shielding from a previous episode.
Factoid : Lore is finally dissasembled, many Borg are killed.

Plotline

More Borg silliness, with Lore doing his David Koresh impersonation.
