Episode propaganda

The Borg are different: they have become individuals and have changed their tactics, confusing the crew of the Enterprise. When Crosus (Brian J Cousins), one of the Borg, is captured, they discover that the Borg are now lead by someone who has taught them new ideas.

Meanwhile, Data is confronted with the emergence of a new experience - emotion. While fighting the Borg, Data gets angry and kills one of the Borg and later admits that he felt pleasure in it. He is very confused by the new experiences and seeks to understand them better. When the captured Borg offers him an explanation, Data helps him escape the ship in a shuttlecraft. When the Enterprise follows, they discover the Borg on a remote planet and discover who is behind the new and deadlier Borg.
