    Hmmm ... I guess no wireless communications protocols exist on the Borg cube since Annika needs to be hardwired in order to communicate with the mini-collective. The Borg assimilated technology that allows them to travel 40,000 light years with a few steps, but they haven't acquired super wi-fi. That's disappointing.

    Well, she doesn't have all her Borg implants. Maybe the first thing the Federation did when they disconnected her in the first place was remove her SuWiFi module...so she had to use her SuEthernet jack to connect.

    Yeah, this.

    I was sooooo excited after Nepenthe but most of that was the "all the feels" nature of seeing Riker and Troi. Broken pieces was just so good in so many other ways. It may have taken a while to get here but perhaps that was necessary from the angle of getting us all invested in each character.

    So they keep asking Soji all these questions about if she sleeps or eats. How come no one has asked her if she poops? Does her body create real poop, or is it fake synthetic poop?

    How many of you has played the Mass Effect original series (I - III) game. The plot is eerily similar to the finale of the series.

    I must have missed it. If they destroyed the tracker in Agnes, how was Narek still able to track them?

    He wasn't...he knows where Soji's homeworld is, and headed there independently.

    I don't think so. He followed them through the Borg transworp tunnel.

    Does it seem like Patrick Stewart's delivery has gotten way better? I wonder if some of the slowness in the beginning was on purpose.

    What was sword-boy doing hugging Seven? Half expectedhim to cry out "Mommy!" Didn't really feel in character for him.

    Mind you, if I was a late-teen/early-20s "boy" I could think of worse things to do than hugging Seven.

    With all E*Hs in that one scene, did anyone else think of the Orphan Black Clone Dance scene?

    P.S. The Scottish Holo was channeling some Jamie Fraser, there, with all his "dinna ken".

    Nice. Although I don't recall Scotty ever saying "dinna ken".

    Or they assimilated a hardened wireless engineer (as opposed to Telecom one) who pointed out that wired is better than wireless for the really important stuff.

    I am wondering if the series is working towards shedding more light on the origin of the Borg.
    If this is somehow related to the race that created the eight star system with the glorified recorder marker.

    Or did the Zhat Vash completely misinterpret the message?

    It seems like they believe that if synth life gets too advanced, then the devil will appear. It's not what the synths are going to do, but the fact that they exist will make their version of the devil come to destroy everyone.

    It looked like has was already there. Maybe he knew that's where they would go.

    Yes, he figured out where her homeworld was before our heroes did.

    But they weren’t at the home world at that point, they were at the entrance to the Borg trans warp conduit. How did he know where the entrance to that was? I guess in theory he could have gotten the info from the Borg cube, but why then just sit there and wait? How could he possibly have know they would use it?
