      Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Best of Both Worlds Part Two is almost as good as part one, although it too unfortunately suffers from a few flaws like the first half. For example, it is real unfortunate that the episode does not show any of the fleet’s battle against the Borg cube.

      Sure, we get to see the aftermath, but it would have been nice to at least see a little bit of the battle.

      The Star


      Trek: Deep Space Nine pilot did show some of the battle, but it is a shame that the budget for this episode was not great enough to allow for it.

      As for the Borg Cube’s advancement towards Earth, relatively little resistance was shown and apparently Earth is without any orbital defenses at all.

      The episode made it look like any hostile vessel could head straight to Earth with practically no resistance.

      Of course, I suppose the budget for the ...


      • show simply could not sustain any of this, but I am only saying that I felt these things impacted the severity and epic nature of this two part episode immensely.

        As for the positives, well, the dialogue is equally enjoyable this time around and Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan proves to be a real welcomed character because her scenes are always just so natural and pleasant.

        The climax to the episode is surprisingly simplistic, but it is effective and it

        makes sense considering the nature of the Borg.

        All in all, I still enjoy this episode even though it could have been better on a couple of levels, and the last minute of the show is really quite chilling as Picard looks out at Earth, clearly scarred for life after what the Borg did to him.

        This is something that will be followed up in the next episode and the move: “Star Trek: First Contact”, quite effectively I might add.
