Worf sounds like he's going to cry after he says "He's a Borg, now."

/great episodes and the pinnacle of ST:TNG

That was a pretty sweet cliffhanger, but I can't believe someone is tracking its freakin' anniversary or whatever. NERD!

Agreed. Every line Locutus spoke was awesome.

An ex coworker of mine QC'd some of the post-production work on those two episodes, and all summer he reminded me that he knew what was going to happen. Bastard.

UberDave: "The Inner Light" was better.

My ex-girlfriend said the same thing. Where Picard lives another life and plays the flute and shiat? Ugh.

Anyway, when the Best of Both Worlds came out and I was a kid, I actually thought a major character could die. That was before they threatened to kill a major character in the promo for every episode.

Oh man, I can't believe I was 6 at the time. Christ, I was in 4th grade when I watched the finale? I feel reaaally old.

Remember when the tar monster biatchslapped Tasha Yar to death?

That was f*cking awesome.

Yeah, when Locutus called Riker "Number One", it was chilling. Really a great episode, actually. Better than the one where Picard skipped the chance to send a virus into the Borg and let the one they had free. If it were Sisko in his place, the Borg would be extinct.

Yeah, that's what made you think anyone could get killed at any time. Until all the promos that said, "Will Geordi get killed? Find out!". You kind of got enured to it.

Best cliffhanger was "Tears of the Prophets."

"I managed to save the Dax symbiont...but there was nothing I could do for Jadzia..."

Mugato: I actually thought a major character could die.

There was a rumor that Patrick Stewart was having contract issues at the time so they very well could have written him out then.
 
2010-06-18 05:13:49 PM
So... they all got assimilated?
 
2010-06-18 05:17:53 PM
What makes this cliff-hanger memorable to me is that it was reported at the time that Patrick Stewart had not yet renewed his contract for the next season, so there was real speculation throughout fandom that Picard would not survive in part 2, that Riker would be promoted to Captain, and that they were setting up Commander Shelby as the new XO.

also, see the season two finale/cliff-hanger for Blake's 7 .

labman: That was a great cliffhanger.

/20 years ago? God I'm old


I would like to say "This" about "That".

This pair of episodes was certainly among the very best, but there are many more that are very worthy of adulation.

My 8 year old son loves the series now, and I have a Williams STTNG pinball machine in the basement that he beats on regularly.

Yes, there was cheese, there were clunky scripts, etc.--but after the cast gelled and the chemistry was in place, when good scripts and directors were involved, when all the parts came together, they were not just good, they were farking GREAT.

/Easily some of the best TV in the last 25 years, IMHO

I wonder how much of that was pure set up. I mean obviously having a replacement show up in the episode was planned to throw you off, but the rumors about the contract could have been totally false as well. (Nerd on) Riker wasn't XO, he was first officer. The only time they had an executive officer was the episode when they were all memory wiped and sent to destroy a space station. The XO was a plant to help motivate them to do what the aliens wanted. (Nerd off)

YOU FEEL REAAALLY OLD?! You're only twenty-six! I was just out of 9th Grade and about to turn sixteen! Now I'm about to turn thirty-six! I'm too young to be this old!

:op

I remember watching this and noticing that the end of the hour was coming up. I was thinking how in the world are they gonna wrap this up and save the day in five minutes? Then the "To Be Continued" popped up and I was like, "WTF?! No! There's no new episode next week, this was supposed to be it! You mean I gotta WAIT until freakin' September?!" God, that was a long summer for a Trekkie...

Nice to see someone here older than me :) Was 12 at the time and had the same reaction...couldn't believe that I had to wait til September. This was back in the pre-Internet days too, so I had no idea there was a cliffhanger coming, or that it would be that evil.

steadyfwd: Worf sounds like he's going to cry after he says "He's a Borg, now."

It would seem like something Worf would do. Seriously, Worf was a pushover. Whenever there would be an emergency, they'd call security and Worf would run in and promptly be thrown through a wall. Then Data would have to come in and have to handle the situation. Shiat, Data could run the entire ship in his sleep. They should come out with a new star trek series where the entire ship is just run by Data.

Heh. Remember when Data got the signal from his creator and just farking stole the Enterprise. That's right, he stole the whole farking ship. While on autopilot.

But yeah, Worf would be upset. He probably had more respect for Picard than anyone.
 
2010-06-18 05:56:44 PM
Oh, and not to mention that it wouldn't be a good death in Worf's mind. Worf would probably rather have killed Picard than leave him to that fate.
 
2010-06-18 06:00:28 PM
I can't believe they didn't show all the quick shots of half the crew committing suicide.
 
2010-06-18 06:04:38 PM
My favorite TNG is still the one where Worf is uncontrollably shifting through parallel realities. My girlfriend and I dropped acid and only after it started kicking in did we realize the new Trek was on that night, so we tuned in just in time, and it was that episode. Jeebus fark, that was exactly the correct way to approach that one.

"Parallels" I think it was called. Yeah that's one of my favorites as well. I still remember the Riker with the huge beard yelling "We won't go back!" since they had to fight the borg all the time in their reality.

Sisko had to get pimp slapped by Picard in the first episode so he could get his mopey emo head out of his ass and do his job.

Picard was the best captain
