weak two-parter. Data's "descent" is very obviously externally caused from the scene way back in part I with the Borg in the brig. The episode makes the Borg look more like Ferengi or Klingons than what made them interesting. The "Crusher in command" subplot was silly as well.
some good action and Spiner's performance as Lore are pluses though. And hey, at least it's not "birthright."
