Earl Grey 20: Ice Cream Scoop Spheres / by Trek fm

The Borg.

First introduced in the second-season episode "Q Who", the Borg grew to become one of Star Trek's scariest and most important villains. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Phillip Gilfus, Darren Moser, and Daniel Proulx talk about the Borg as portrayed on The Next Generation. We discuss how they evolved over the course of the series, the changes that took place, and compare how they were used on Voyager. We also explore various episodes that deal with development of the Borg as a credible—and maybe not always so credible—threat. So prepare to be assimilated!
