The Best of Both Worlds Part 1

I remember watching The Best of Both Worlds part one on television in Australia with no idea what was coming, there was no internet to spoil things then.  Ending on that amazingly good cliffhanger was agonising because in Australia we had no idea when the show would be coming back or even if the channel that carried it would show it (science fiction shows have been notoriously handled in Australian prime time – even our own produced Farscape was relegated to late night Christmas binge watching).

So seeing Picard walk out as that Borg was just really damn good, jaw-dropping television.

Whilst Patrick Stewart is always brilliant I think that Jonathan Franks and Riker get a real chance to shine in this two parter, that last scene which tightens in to focus on Riker and he orders Worf to open fire is wonderful and a great moment for the character.
