Elaboration on this episode[edit]

Not sure if relevant but the book 'Q AND A' elaborates very heavily on the events of this episode, even naming many of the eighteen crewmembers murdered by the Borg. Lots42 (talk) 20:09, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Hey Miyagawa, I'll be glad to take this one. Comments to follow in the next 1-3 days. Thanks as always for your work! -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:33, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Okay, on first pass, this looks solid. I've made some prose tweaks throughout; feel free to revert any with which you disagree, and I can explain and discuss. I still need to do some source-checking and independent Googling for this, but my impression is that it's about ready to pass. Two clarity points I couldn't immediately resolve below. -- Khazar2 (talk) 12:51, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

  • "The new race would go on to appear in six episodes of The Next Generation" -- is this counting Q Who or in addition to Q Who?
  • Quite right! It was six including "Q Who". I've changed it to "five further episodes". Miyagawa (talk) 17:16, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
  • "This may have been linked to the aliens seen in "Conspiracy"" -- I'm not sure what the pronoun "this" refers to here.
  • I've changed it to "This plot may..." - its been speculated that the aliens seen in Conspiracy had a connection to the hive mind insect race that the Borg idea originated from. There's a couple of websites that present this as fact, but digging deeper I've never found any direct interview etc that has said that it was where it came from. Miyagawa (talk) 17:16, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the review - I have all the source material scanned into a single PDF if you want me to email it over to look at. Just the pages used that is, rather than the whole book. I used to use an app on my phone to make quick scans of pages and then email to myself so I can flick between windows on the computer while editing. More recently (starting with Shades of Grey) I've just had the book next to me as it is quicker although maybe not quite as easy. :) Miyagawa (talk) 17:16, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Yeah, that'd be a huge help. Could you send it to my Wikipedia e-mail? More later! -- Khazar2 (talk) 17:24, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
