An Earth research team uncovers wreckage and drones from the Borg sphere that attempted to stop Zephram Cochrane's warp flight nearly 100 years ago. The Borg regenerate, assimilate the team, modify their transport and flee Earth. Enterprise answers a distress call too late, rescues "survivors," and Phlox is injected with assimilation nanoprobes. Enterprise catches the transport and Archer must determine whether or not to try to salvage the personnel or stop the Borg efforts before they are out of control. Written by Meribor

The Bynars mentioned by Dr. Phlox appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation: 11001001 (1988). See more »


The Borg always introduce themselves as the Borg before telling you you will be assimilated, resistance is futile. These Borg did not. This is obviously the only way these writers could handle the fact that no one heard of the Borg in that quadrant until Q pushed the enterprise into the delta quadrant in the next generation series. Thought the first contact movie lead to this series chronologically, they seemed to want to avoid any timeline issues with the Borg being known as the Borg but still wanted to play with the idea of survivors.

[Dr. Moninger has suggested to put the cybernetic corpses in cold storage and examine them under controlled conditions]
Drake: There's no reason to assume they're hostile.
Dr. Moninger: [laughs nervously] They don't exactly look friendly.
Drake: Starfleet has asked us to find out everything we can. Keep them here for now. We'll see what happens.

What a Catastrophe
21 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I am so angry. This episode is so far off. I thought that Jonathan Archer was going to meet the great progressive theologian Marcus Borg. But apparently he doesn't get introduced until Q shows up in The Next Generation. Apparently he gets hoisted on his own Picard. Oh, wait, the chronology is so confusing. Hey, I'm just having a little fun. I love you guys who are so involved in these shows that you will give an episode a one because it doesn't fit in with the world you have studied to the exclusion of the real world you live in. I thought this was very exciting. I was surprised to see the Borg show up. If those other shows make your findings factual, why can't this one? I mean, it is a part of the Star Trek canon now that it's been put on television. You need to fill in your time lines with some new stuff. How do you know that the business with Q isn't wrong and this is correct? Perhaps The Next Generation was a trick to make us forget that this earlier stuff happened. Just saying!
