    Or The BQ decides to take over humanity by going back to the 21st century and becoming an instagram influencer? Srill not sure how Q fits in, maybe he is the one that sends Picard back

    21st century Earth. What if she's a computer technician and they're doing their own version of Borg Origins? I recall a pitched Enterprise season 5 episode starring Alice Krige where she was a medical technician on NX-01 who got assimilated and became the queen.

    Either that, or she'll appear in Picard's head to taunt him. I can't see Picard doing any kind of traditional TNG/FC/VOY Borg story.

    Star Trek Picard is pathetic. It has the façade of doing something new, but really it's just about digging up memberberries and trend chasing.

    We've seen the Borg a million times. Move on. Couldn't care less about the Queen.

    Picard has always been about nostalgia. I don't think it's ever pretended otherwise.

    The Borg are a large part of who Picard is as a person.

    The man has been traumatized by his time as Locutus for over thirty years.

    I don't disagree only in that the Borg Queen was on several VOY episodes after her debut in First Contact (and being the best big bad of the TNG films and one of the best big bads of all the Trek movies), while Hugh was in like only three TNG episodes. I still wish they had kept Hugh alive. There was no need to kill him off. It's not like we saw the great friendship (supposedly) between him and Seven to necessitate her getting revenge. Perhaps they should've kept Icheb alive for that, if he was fated to killed off.

    Pretty sure the Borg just mulch drones once they age.

    The show could be better, but "pathetic" it isn't.

    Hugh dying doesn't mean the Borg Queen coming back makes sense. But, it was inevitable with Seven, Picard and alternate timelines.

    Apparently it’s a 2016 episode of a TNT show I’ve never heard of called Major Crimes.

    My Google-Fu is strong today.

    Hugh was Borg.

    Seven would've seen him as a brother.

    And he was director of a project explicitly set up to help exBs recover, something Seven would greatly respect even if they had no personal interactions.

    I didn't say it did. I just hope that the Borg Queen's presence on the series is utilized to better effect than Hugh's. Hugh was just a glorified cameo to get old fans excited and then he was killed off unnecessarily. One of my issues with PIC is they sidelined or got rid of some of their most intriguing characters like Hugh, Picard's Romulan friends, and yes, even Number One, while still not doing enough to develop the main characters, especially Jurati and Rios, to a lesser extent Raffi. Heck, I could throw Seven on this list as well, because a lot of her character 'arc' if you want to call it that came really from people already being familiar with her character on VOY, and not so much the writing from PIC.

    That's fair enough, though Seven taking revenge again for yet another fallen ex-Borg was redundant.

    Seven was near pointless in Picard. It's frustrating to me how more interesting elements were largely left aside for Borg nonsense
