The end of this episode when Picard doesn’t drink his tea and stares our the window with a worried expression was a fantastic choice to show just how serious the Borg threat is. Overall this was a very exciting and well written episode with a clever resolution based around good character decisions. This is how you write a TV series.

Episode 3-26, The Best Of Both Worlds Part I
Ah, yeah, the Borg! The set up for this episode is interesting in how it explores Riker’s hesitancy in taking his own command and it’s a very good decision by the writers to introduce this dramatic element to his character. And I like how he’s competing with a younger officer who wants his job and isn’t afraid to tell him to get out of the way. Humanity might be more enlightened in Trek, but they’re still competitive as hell. Anyway, the Borg kick ass and the decision to kidnap Picard and use him to defeat Earth’s defenses is a good idea. Great episode with a perfect cliffhanger.
