Star trek 

The borg are good and cool in exactly four trek eps:

Q Who - S02E16 (TNG)
The Best of Both Worlds, Part I - S03E26 (TNG)
The Best of Both Worlds, Part II - S04E01 (TNG)
I, Borg - S05E23 (TNG)

Every other time they show up in trek, they suck

@Taweret And honestly, for a Star Trek species, 4 episodes is a pretty good run

@bgcarlisle and even with the good eps, the idea that the borg would need Picard or anyone as a spokesperson was kinda bullshit and never rang true, but that two parter was hype as fuck so most of us give it a pass on that

@Taweret If only that had been the worst Borg decision that Star Trek writers ever made

@bgcarlisle yeah the movie fucked them up and then voyager did it's damnedest to destroy the last nanoprobes of borg coolness

@Taweret @bgcarlisle I enjoyed First Contact as a teenager, but giving the borg a queen was really a betrayal of the whole "no single point of failure" concept
