Regeneration

What would the ENT boards be without at least one single thread about the Borg's one-time appearance in Jonathan Archer's time as Captain of Enterprise?

How do the fans of this series rate the the episode and the Borg in it? It was quite unusual for them to bring the Borg in to a story like this one, that had nothing directly to do with their ongoing stiry arcs on TNG/VOY. So how you are it?

Re: Regeneration

I think Regeneration was well done, even if it fell into the same trap that most Enterprise episodes did of introducing characters/races we are already familiar with from the 24th century without having had first contact with them yet (Acquisition comes to mind).

It was certainly a better Borg episode than most of the Voyager Borg episodes.

Re: Regeneration

I liked it, and given that Starfleet probably would have classified everything it doesn't bother me that Picard doesn't know about them later.

Re: Regeneration

I liked the episode. actually, it felt pretty good to see the Borg being badass again after all these years wasted on Voyager... And the music was pretty effective to me. Didn't sound like the common star trek episodes.

Thumbs up!

Re: Regeneration

I liked it. The Borg were effective again.

And as for it not being part of the ongoing Borg Arc, here's a little something from Memory Alpha's "Background Information" on the episode....

The episode introduces a potential predestination paradox into the overall Borg story arc. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that the assimilated Earth freighter dispatched a subspace message to the Delta Quadrant. T'Pol theorized it would take at least two hundred years for the message to reach the Delta Quadrant, implying that this may be how the Borg originally learned of Humanity's existence. If the message was received, it may explain why, in the 24th century, the Borg sent at least one vessel to the vicinity of Federation space, destroying several Romulan and Federation outposts in 2364 (TNG: The Neutral Zone). A series of incidents with the Federation followed over the next several years, culminating in the Battle of Sector 001, wherein a Borg sphere traveled to the 21st century in an effort to assimilate Humanity in the past (Star Trek: First Contact). The sphere was destroyed, and several drones from the vessel were frozen in an Arctic glacier in 2063, which were uncovered by the Arctic scientists 90 years later in Regeneration, starting the causality loop all over again.

Re: Regeneration

I didn't have a problem with the Borg being in Enterprise. I did think that the crew of the NX-01 had a tad too little trouble overpowering them, but I guess that's just small potatoes.

As several people have already mentioned, "Regeneration" brought back that sinister quality that the Borg had when we first saw them in TNG. I thoroughly enjoyed the initial scene when the Borg bodies are found and the Arctic research team is trying to figure out what they are, completely ignorant of the danger they pose. That scene has a classic horror movie feel to it.

Re: Regeneration

I always assumed the Borg took all their tech when they left earth explaining some continuity errors.

Re: Regeneration

I loved it, it was straight out of "The Thing". Great music, very atmospheric. I loved how they handled them never being named and ending up an unknown mystery that was easily forgotten as there were no new encounters after that.

A very enjoyable episode. Lots and lots of fun. The continuity's broken, no matter how much you try to think your way around it (predestination paradox? Yeah, right) but that doesn't matter.

I don't think the continuity is broken. What makes you say it is?

Remember the bit in "Q Who", where Data brought up Archer's old log of cybernetic beings identical to the ones they were confronted with now? No?

Me neither. And remember, in the TNG era people play through Archer's old missions on the holodeck ("These Are the Voyages")

But as has been said, Starfleet likely classified all information on the incident.
