Episode propaganda

Picard sends an away team to investigate the wreckage of a small craft, where they find the only survivor is an adolescent Borg, Hugh (Jonathan del Arco). The Captain initially shows no sign of wanting to help, however, Beverly eventually persuades to beam the creature aboard in spite of the fact that his presence on the ship could alert the rest of his race. Back on board the Enterprise, Beverly disconnects the command centre that allows the Borg to communicate with the rest of his race.

Troi senses anger in Picard, who was kidnapped by the Borg, but he refuses to discuss his feelings. However, those feelings become apparent when Beverly discovers that her new patient's brain implants have been damaged and asks Picard if Geordi can construct new ones. Picard realises that if Geordi can tamper with the command structure of this Borg's brain, he can destroy the entire race through their interconnected network.
