    That was awesome, the whole episode, some great writing unfolding in two ways, with the Borg and the synthetic lifeforms...

    The story about these synthetics and the past warnings kind of remind me of Battlestar Galactica and the Cylons...Then what Seven of Nine did, freaking awesome, however she should not have done it...Now she has that taste and will connect to the cube again, just watch, she might start craving that power the more she wields it lol...

    This episode unfolded brilliantly and was extremely entertaining, it had my full attention lol...

    I didn't catch this until I watched episode 8 again,

    Are they saying that a dangerous species worse than the Borg will come if synthetic lifeforms are allowed to continue to be produced and allowed to exist?...

    I think so. And if it's true, they must be incredibly powerful.
    But I wonder, if they are referring to actual history, why doesn't anyone else remember it?
    On the other hand, if it's a prophecy, it could very well be a delusion or misinterpretation.

    Perhaps history forgot about those powerful beings like they did the species who left the warning, too much time passed to remember, I think they said 250,000 years ago is when they came?...It seems to be more than a prophecy, the planet that contained the warning seemed to be an archive of recorded history from that distant past giving a summary of events...I wished they gave us a glimpse of the dangerous species, maybe they are something like species 8472, creatures from another dimension or realm...

    There was a perfect injection of humour when Elnor asked Seven of Nine "So are you going to assimilate me now?" lol, after the Romulans leave the Borg cube...

    I understand better now why some fans get upset over the profanity in this series, the moment the Star Fleet boss was talking to Picard and told him to shut the fuck up...I think the writers tried to be funny but it wasn't necessary to say that...

    I may be overly influenced by pop culture, but I thought members of the military, sailors especially, use profanity quite a bit.

    'Tis true, although Star Fleet personnel fly in space, they can be considered as sailors lol...

    Was there ever a Deep Space Nine episode that had an appearance of the Borg?...

    I'm pretty sure, no. But Sisko fought the Borg while Picard was Locutus. But that was prior to DS9.

    Since it's a 2-parter, I'm going to wait until next week two watch them back to back.

    This one was good, I just don't see how they are going to wrap anything up in one episode. I suspect a cliffhanger.

    Yeah there is so much about to happen, I can't see it all taking place in just one more episode, it must be a cliffhanger...

    Especially too because a Star Fleet task force is still heading to that region, it appears a huge battle is being staged...

    I'm watching episode 9 again, this series has a great story IMO, and the CG action is excellent quality...

    Well, I admit, I was wrong, They did wrap it up nicely with no cliff hanger.

    It was unexpected, I am impressed, What a great show. This episode was written so well, That even if there was never another episode of Picard this would make a perfect send-off. I have a lot of things I'd like to talk about in this episode. But I don't want to spoil anything for anyone.

    I will wait until everyone has seen it before I get into my gripes with certain choices made. However, even with my own distaste for certain decisions, What a beautiful and perfectly written story.

    Still, Did you notice how Picard was Literally there with Data as he died? Yet also Golem Picard was Also alive in the Living World? What a Story.
