Getting an early start to Sunday with #TrekAdvent with a Star Trek cliffhanger that dropped my jaw as a child.
Vicious Borg were scary enough, but to realize who was leading them at the same moment Picard figured it out blew my young mind. And Data with emotion? Seeing him reacquire that chip opened a door to a world of possibilities for the character. (Personally I don’t think they ever really walked through it, but that’s another story.)
Perhaps my favorite moment happened behind the scenes; Stephen Hawking appeared as himself in the episode’s teaser. While on the set he visited the bridge and sat in the captain’s chair, and made it to Engineering to look at the Warp Core. While looking at it he reassured everyone “I’m working on that.”
Day 8: Descent.
