The Borg have always been one of the star trek franchises most powerful weapons in the war on ratings and publicity, sometimes in more recent years used in desperation to cover treks' more embarrasing moments in its relationship with its viewers. I am of course talking, about "regeneration" but apart from this hiccup, and possibly a few more little let downs with the Voyager episodes, this box ser has them all. All the major encounters, all the plot changing moments. standouts include the TNG episodes "best of both worlds" and "Q,who?" which show the borg back in the early days before their slow morph from powerhouse into staple diet baddie.
One thing I'd have loved to have seen on this DVD, is some artwork..some concept sketches and interviews with cast and crew. Instead fans are treated to a rather tiresome commentary on the Enterprise episode, and the odd text commentary on other selected episodes. Hardly a "Fan" collective. This box set is fantastic if you loved the borg, but not so great if, like me..you were hoping for slightly more out of paramount for your money. Unfortuntaley these days its all about the money for star trek, especially since theyll be using it all to build the sets for what could possibly be an "enterprise" movie *sigh*.
the borg, all of it, in nice DVD format :D
Alice Krige reprising her role as queen in "end game"
Picard being assimilated and kicking federation ass in "BOBW"
An insight into the borg as the most powerful force in the galaxy
and a look at their latest and rather weaker incarnations
Overall, worth buying if you dont own the other trek season box sets..oh and of course if youre a borg fan.
