Trivia:
The compound interiors were a narrow three-wall set multiplied optically, along with the Borg extras. They were left standing in the hiatus between seasons, but the caverns were built for Pt 2.See more »

Plot holes: Immediately after Picard, Geordi, and Troi are captured, Data is seen removing their Starfleet Comm Badges, presumingly to prevent them from being tracked and contacted by other crew members. However, Data does not remove his own Starfleet badge; isn't he running the risk of being tracked & located by the search teams by not doing this?See more »

Overcoming Your Programming, 7 October 2014
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

There are two issues at work here. The future of the Borg (disconnected) and the futures of Data and Lore. Data has been neutralized and a chip producing negative emotions installed. He has hooked up with Dr. Soon's miscreant throwaway child, Lore, who has become a threat to the Universe by engaging independent Borg (the product of Hugh's leaving the hive). This is mostly about Data and his ability to function (not unlike the Borg with his analytical side butting up against the good side). The problem for Lore is that he is unprincipled and evil and has no redeeming qualities. He destroys everything in his path for power, and because he is so transparent, he alienates those he must enlist in his schemes. Data begins to see the illogic of these actions, and while he longs to experience emotions again and to advance his humanity, there are things within him that block the pathways. Simply stated, he is only partially sure of things and that becomes a dilemma for him. This is a neat episode, even if one is concerned only with the fate of the crew members and Captain PIcard.
