Re: TNG S5: I, Borg

What i thought was missing from this episode was an acknowledgement that the borg, to the extent that they are in fact a race, are a race of victims OF THE BORG. The whole episode focused on the rightness or wrongness of exterminating them as borg - and never touched on the fact that they are all assimilated individuals who had a life pre-borg. I was annoyed in the early stages with Crusher arguing that it was wrong to exterminate the race: they are an artificially created race! I was also annoyed that no one ever questioned whether it was wrong to exterminate them if there was a chance that the former-individuals comprising the borg could ever be restored — or took the position that it was RIGHT to wipe them out, so no one else would ever have to suffer that same fate.

To me, this episode, while very watchable, ignored the most interesting question. Oh sure, well and fine to liberate locutus from the hive, but the rest of them are just a hive-mind, now and forever..
