So much bad, so little time... So the Borg are mysteriously reduced to like one cube and cannibalism for survival. Don't they know how to build replicators and other tech that would lead to them being able to maintain a level beyond mere survival? The goal of the Borg has changed from assimilating useful biological and technological material to exterminating people...because reasons? We still don't get any explanation of how there was the Borg/rogue Changeling alliance. Such an alliance makes little sense on the face of it given the original characterization of these species. The Borg want to assimilate everything (or in the case of this version, just want to kill all things, I guess). The Changelings want to eliminate solids and to form a new Great Link. Aren't the Borg solids? Don't the Changelings realize that the Borg's agenda does not really include an independent future for them? Are they fine with being either exterminated or assimilated as long as the Federation goes down too? When did the Borg Cube get to Jupiter? They talked about there being a transwarp conduit that led it there, so presumably after Jack was assimilated. Did it transwarp there prior to flipping all the 25-and-younger folks? Or after? If before, it seems like there should have been some Sol defenses that would have reacted to its presence. Isn't there a whole shipbuilding station there that should have spotted them and done something about it? If it's after, then how was the signal sent that flipped the youngsters into Borg? OK, so the Cube has the beacon that flips all these youngsters into Borg at the center of it. How the heck is the beacon in a place that is big enough for the Ent-D to fly to it? Why aren't more things deployed to defend it? Yes, it is a longshot for the D to get to it, hit it with the native defenses of the cube, but how do the roughly gazillion ships nearby not make the .00001 percent chance to an actual zero percent chance? How is it that none of the nearby galactic powers like the Klingons seeing that the Borg have taken over this big Frontier Day celebration, or if they have, why aren't they doing something? Using the John Cena "You can't see me!" approach for why the Titan couldn't be re-taken over is beyond ridiculous. As is the notion that they don't program the transport phasers to beam the Borg into the brig, or to keep them locked in the transport buffer. I hate that Picard has gotten over Beverly withholding information about Jack AND cutting off the rest of the TNG crew for 20 years. How can Picard just jack himself into the Borg collective consciousness? Why doesn't the Queen just boot him out? Drones physically destroy him? Anything? So to fastforward, Jack decides to just abandon the Borg Collective thanks to memories of basically random nice moments with Papa Picard in the last few days. That's supposed to be enough to get him to abandon feeling welcomed after a lifetime of loneliness? And he doesn't first tell the neo-Borg to stand down or anything? So our heroes save the day. But don't we gloss over what all happened here? I mean, there have to be tens of thousands of 26+yo Starfleet officers who were murdered, and who can't be replaced? Shouldn't all of young Starfleet and the Federation be traumatized by what just happened? And shouldn't Jack be the opposite of fast-tracked through Starfleet? Even as a nepo-baby, he voluntarily gave himself up to the Borg and caused what must be the biggest tragedy in Starfleet history. Unlike JLP, he had fair warning that the Borg were looking for him, and the ability to conceal himself from them. He opted to give himself up to the Borg for answers, knowing exactly how threatening they were and that whatever they might want from him, it's not going to be good. In fact, he went out of his way to do so. He's basically the biggest mass murderer in Federation history. And even putting his latest actions aside for some reason, didn't he still have a bunch of warrants out for him beforehand and stuff?
