pip pip pip pip pip Jack's Favorite

Picard is rescued from the Borg as the Enterprise races to save Earth. A great number of Starfleet ships are destroyed by the lone Borg ship, although an away team finally rescues Picard. Data interfaces with the half-Borg Picard and finds a way to shut down the Borg ship.

Features: The Borg
Stardate: 44001.4
Air Date: 09/24/90
Director: Cliff Bole

Jack's Review
A masterful ending to a great story. The full circle aspect is terrific and after watching several times you'll realize this is a Riker story more than the Borg or Picard. We see Riker questioning his place and his motivation, become Captain and then end up right where he belongs by the end.

Jack's Review
The first time I saw this episode I admit, I didn't like it. After several views I will concede that it is another of Trek's best. The human aspect of Star Trek is what makes the show so accessible and amazing and this one is a prime example. Picard's pain is palpable and gut wrenching. And Samantha Eggar as Picard's sister in law is a welcome addition.

Okay, sure. The screeching boy playing alien death metal in Picard's quarters is just plain annoying. However, the story has some heartwarming moments.

Jack's Review
This one is just terrific fun. A great mystery in the finest Trek fashion that works into a wonderful twist. Gates McFadden is even better than usual in this one as well. I remember seeing this one when it first aired and it stuck with me for years. On my first complete binge-watch of the series, I waited patiently to see this one again and I was not disappointed. While it didn't make my top 10 TNG episodes, I can tell you it was a close call.
