The Best Of Both Worlds, Part 2

Happy Monday Folks! Today was just another Monday to be honest so I don’t have a lot to really share here. Maybe I should just string together a series of random words to make it appear like something really happened. Shim Sham, hullabaloo, soft shell crab, watermelon! In some news I’m up a few pounds at the moment, I think because of all of the food and liquor over the weekend. It should be back down in a few days. So, no worries there.

The Best Of Both Worlds, Part 2
The show picks up right where the previous episode left off. The Enterprise proceeds with its plan and opens fire on the Borg ship and it really has no effect on the cube. The Enterprise is nearly paralyzed and the Borg ship resumes its course to Earth to assimilate the entire planet. The crew is left with a few tasks, trying to repair the ship to rendezvous with the rest of the Fleet at Wolf 359, and figuring out a way to rescue Picard, all while trying to mourn the apparent loss of the Captain. Riker is struggling until Guinan gives him a lovely pep talk and he grows a set and takes command. A plan is set into action to distract the Borg ship by separating the Enterprise into its two units and then engaging the cube while a shuttle gets through to attempt a rescue of the captain. The plan works well and the captain is rescued but the ship is left heavily damaged. With Picard now on the Enterprise Crusher and Data work to revive Picard and find a way to learn a few secrets of the Borg, Locutus though makes it clear that he will not assist the Federation in any way. Crusher and Data reach Picard through a mind link and are given the advice from Picard to make the Borg ship “sleep”. The ship goes into hibernation and self destructs, leaving the Borg threat nullified, for now at least.

What an amazing conclusion to a great first episode. With Picard out of the way the rest of the crew is given a chance to take on a bigger role in the show, which is nice to see as occasionally the other cast members don’t get a lot to do. The fourth season is truly where the show started to really shine and I can’t wait to walk through this season.
