Re: I, Borg and Descent

Actually, I thought having Lore finding Hugh's group and manipulating Data was a good idea. It wound up being executed in a cheesy way.

Re: I, Borg and Descent

^ The idea of Lore using emotion to manipulate Data seems good fodder for a story and seems consistent with his character. But while the idea of him using the Borg might make logical sense on paper, in practice I think it comes across as too gimmicky and cartoony. Kind of like there should be a Superfriends promo for the episode.

And it wasn't helped by the way in which it was executed. That cliffhanger, which I've mentioned before, is to me one of the most cringeworthy moments I've ever seen on television. "The Sons of Soongh have joined together. And together we will destroy the Federation." Ugh. Gene Hackman's Lex Luthor would have thought that line was too over the top.
