Advertisements I enjoyed this back then and still do. While it's titled "The Neutral Zone", that story almost seems to be the b-plot. I really liked the concept of those people being frozen at death and then awakened all those years later. The guest stars really helped. To me, they really sold their parts. The character of Ralph Offenhouse was a tad over-the-top at times, though. Does anyone know definitively if the Borg angle was ever something official from the writers or just an attempted sort of fanboy retcon? This is kind of a random thought, but the round-room set used for the cryo-ship seemed to get a lot of use on the Trek series over the years.
