THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS PT-1 TNG

Star Trek TNG The Best of Both Worlds
Writer Michael Piller
Director: Cliff Bole
Creator: Gene Roddenberry

A battle leads to all out war at Wolf 359. In Star Treks TNG cliffhanger episode the Borg take on the Federations flagship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D! The United Federation of Planets is paralysed with the annihilation of 40 ships including Klingon, remember? Captain Picard now kidnapped and transformed by Borg automatons speaks for them. "I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile, your life as it has been is over - from this time forward you will service us!"



The Borg appear to have one collective mission on their hive minds. Get the Picard and wipe out the Federation. It's a magnificent stratagem for the Borg who beam aboard the Enterprise-D and swipe Picard by complete surprise. In beautiful precision these automatons execute their daring plan, stunning Starfleet's sharpest trained bridge-crew in the fleet.



 I was gob smacked in 1992 when Star Trek's Best of Both Worlds aired in Ireland. Tapping into one of the Federations brightest minds walking past Starfleet defenses using his knowledge... Pure genius wasn't it? but....... No way! I thought in 1992 as I went into complete denial, the Borg learned all about Federation tactical defenses strengths and weaknesses by getting at Picard. It was game-over man!

No, Never, Never! I cried as reality sunk in despair and had to accept grim facts. This was pure defeat.

 Worf said it best. "He is a Borg" when the rescue failed. Picard becomes Locutus, the new voice for the Borg. Any trekker who watches Star Trek's The Best of Both Worlds, Part I+2 even today will get an adrenalin rush with this chiller thriller.



 The unbelievable scheming of both sides sets the pulses racing as Commander Riker vs Borg Picard now "Locutus" battle it out for supremacy during this lead up to Battle of Wolf 359. Its really a no-win scenario in this epic action assault of firepower and wits until....Yes, Riker fires on Picard's Borg Cube!

Believe it. Mr Worf..... Fire!

How many lives were lost at the Borg vs Federation firefight at Wolf 359?

21,000
11,000
10,000

Who do you blame for the loss of Benjamin Sisko's(DS9) wife?

Admiral Hanson
Captain Picard
The Borg

Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers

STAR TREK FUTURE DEFENDERS

Cadets have enrolled in Starfleet over the years making their dreams come true by turning scores of Doctors, Scientists and Engineers into future leaders. These guys are our protectors... Over 2019 we've been hearing a lot about them and it fair to say newcomers Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora are shooting the Trek with Star Trek Picard as we speak.

PICARD - PATRICK STEWART

Now I Know what your thinking. All we have to do is watch Star Trek and put on our listening ears.....but questions remain. Is there an equivalent to Game of Thrones Sandor "The Hound" Clegane or Arya Stark ? These characters while set to fight civil wars in medieval times are interesting and fun to watch.

SEVEN - JERI RYAN OBSERVING
BEVERLY, PICARD OBSERVING THEMSELVES



DR HELEN NOEL
So who do you think was the ladies man? Kirk or Picard?  James T. Kirk had many conquests one being Dr Helen Noel (Dagger of the Mind) played by Marianna Hill. Jean Luc Picard scored big with Dr Beverly Crusher - Gates McFadden in (STTNG Attached)

So where will Star Trek Picard lead us in the future as the admiral time-treks on his mission through the 24th century?

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers
