Re: TNG S7: Liaisons

TNG plays its parodies too straight, at least Voyagers and DS9s parodies were funny

Re: TNG S6: Descent, Part I

The dumb decision was to send Hugh back, not that he didn't genocide them

Besides, the paradox approach wouldn't have been very likely to be successful. see also my post in I, Borg

Re: TNG S6: Suspicions

I found it funny how all shots from outside the shuttle are of it flying into the corona. That was some of the most blatant reusal of footage so far.

I also wonder how he plans to turn the shield into a weapon or how Beverly plans to prove anything after atomizing his body.

Re: TNG S5: I, Borg

There are several problems with this episode, but i don't think the refusal to genocide the borg is one of them.

First, Picard already showed on his own self that it's perfectly possible to separate an assimilated individual from the borg. Yet no such attempt is made on Hugh. It doesn't seem that much has changed about the Borg since then, why not at least try it?
Similar problems arise about the notion that the borg would track Hugh down by any means. Picard has been back on the Enterprise for a while but no Borg vessel even tried to reach him. Somehow Hugh doesn't even seem to know Picard isn't Locutus anymore. Clearly the communication inside the collective isn't nearly as good as they believe.

The notion that a simple paradox would shut down the collective is rather stupid as well. Even assuming it would affect one vessel, most of the borg are on a different end of the galaxy. If they can't even communicate Locutus's capture in this long of a time, how will the virus ever spread beyond the vessel?

What they should have done is removed Highs implants or at least tracking device and integrated him into the Federation. He could have given them information about the borg and it would have been much more likely to help than either sending him back or trying to infect the borg.
