A goof of this episode, 7 October 2006
Author: hank frealy from Canada

This comment is to be considered a goof of the episode since there were not any others mentioned I think this one does merit a mention since the Borg are considered a collective and speak as a group and consider themselves all as one and not individuals.Just before Geordi and Dr.Crusher give the Borg a name he asks them "Do I have a name?" which is so clearly and easily recognizable of being improper Borg terminology I find it interesting they overlooked it.Properly spoken, the Borg would have naturally said "Do We have a name?" but the episode was left as is and distributed with what I consider to be a rather large slip-up in proper format of a recurring alien character(s) such as the Borg.
