Trivia

In an early draft, Lt. Reginald Barclay (Dwight Schultz) took the place of Ensign Taitt. The change was made due to availability and cost issues. See more »

Goofs

In Star Trek: The Next Generation: Brothers, Data's emotion chip was seen as a small round sphere; here it is shown as a round flat disc with a triangular section missing from it (and still later, in the movie Star Trek: Generations, it is seen as being much larger and an entirely different shape yet again).

Brothers and emotions.
30 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:153 - "Descent, Part II" (Stardate: 47025.4) - this is the 1st episode of the 7th and last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

As the episode opens, it is revealed that Lore (Data's evil brother) is behind the attacks and the unification of the self-aware Borg, and also responsible for giving Data his negative addictive emotions (via the emotion chip from "Brothers" that Dr. Soong created for Data), thereby making him loyal to Lore. They have captured Picard, Troi, and Geordi, while Dr. Crusher remains in command of the Enterprise (facing her own challenges). And, Riker and Worf (still on the planet with 45 others) soon encounter another group of self-aware Borg lead by Hugh (again played by "I, Borg" Jonathan Del Arco).

Find out what happens in this exciting "Descent" conclusion episode. Only real complaint is that Hugh doesn't meet Geordi (his "friend" from "I, Borg") in this episode, which I found disappointing.

Trivia note: Dr. Crusher uses the metaphasic shielding she learned about in the 6th season episode "Suspicions" to outrun the Borg. The emotion chip seen in this episode will reach its conclusion a year later in Star Trek: Generations. We see Spot again too.
