Goofs

When Geordi is strapped down to the lab table and Data is imitating Picard's voice, watch Geordi's left hand closely. Although he is supposed to be tightly restrained by a seat-belt type strap running across his arms and chest, he briefly slips his left hand easily out from under the restraint when struggling, although actor LeVar Burton quickly realizes the mistake and slips his hand back underneath the belt.

Quotes

Doctor Beverly Crusher: Lieutenant, is there any way we can use the planet as a barrier to keep the Borg from realizing we're in orbit?
Ensign Zandra Taitt: We can enter orbit while they're on the far side of the planet. And if we delayed dropping out of warp until the last possible instant, we could gain a few more seconds.
Lieutenant Barnaby: If your calculations are even slightly off, we'd hit the atmosphere!
Ensign Zandra Taitt: I'll just have to be sure my calculations are accurate, Ensign.

Lore is evil and obnoxious...and he does it with a twinkle in his eye.
1 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second part of a two-part series--ending season six and beginning season seven.

In the first part, the Borg attack the Enterprise. But it's not THE Borg but an odd offshoot. Oddly, at the end of this episode, they learn that Lore, Data's evil twin, is behind it all--and he takes several of the crew prisoner.

This second part has two main plots. With lots of the crew on the planet looking for Lore and the Borg, Dr. Crusher is in command and must contend with the Borg and rescuing the crew--no small feat. The main plot involves Data, who is under some sort of mind control by Lore. Can Geordi and the other prisoners manage to break through Data's new programming to get him to refuse to do Lore's evil bidding?

All in all, this is a very exciting finale--and I almost always love these two-parters because there's so much action and mayhem! Well worth seeing--especially since Lore is so wonderfully bad!
