Re: Episode of the Week: 2x16 "Q Who"

Not a big deal, but why not have the scene play out while she's sitting by the window?
It almost appears as if Guinan is too scared to look directly at this sight...

The scariest bit - the Borg "nursery".
And it sort of gets scarier when later episodes reveal that the Borg don't actually bear babies - so they apparently assimilate them, too! Just imagine how that happens...

It IMHO adds to this episode that pretty much everything our heroes "establish" about these weird aliens gets contradicted later. Picard's hubris is not a mere personal quirk: it's something built into Starfleet, and evident in the actions and beliefs of each of its members. Our heroes are defenseless against the Borg in more ways than one!
