Speaking of Family, it is interesting Gene didn't want them to do that episode. I think it was one of the best episodes of the series. It really humanized Picard and showed the effect that being assimilated had on him.
I thought Family
was a cop-out.
Picard's redemption for what happened should've been a long-running thread through the remainder of the series. We should've seen the back room whispers about how a man can be trusted that killed 40,000 of his own.
They trot it out from time to time, but between those few times, it is the same Picard we always know with no ill effects from what happened to him. IMO.
