It's interesting to go back and watch this one again. So much has been done with the Borg, and seeing their introduction is a little humbling. But before getting to that... Is it ever discussed what the deal is between Q and Guinan? And why does Guinan look like she's going to go all supernatural on Q at one point? It was an interesting way to use the Guinan character, and Whoopi did a pretty good job...but there did seem to be some unanswered questions. But back to the Borg. Their introduction almost felt weak--but probably because they were turned into such a big bad in the future. Granted, they were unstoppable even in this episode, but future incarnations of the Borg, especially in First Contact and Voyager, were much more monster like. One thing that did pack a punch that was essentially reconned out in the future were the Borg babies.
