I never picked up on the fact that Elizabeth Dennehy, who played Commander Shelby, is the daughter of the late Brian Dennehy.

Last night I watched both parts of "The Best of Both Worlds", which was the season-ending cliff-hanger for the third season of Star Trek - The Next Generation. This was my first exposure to such, and it was quite well done. I remember when I first heard Riker say "Mister Worf - fire", then saw the awful words "To be continued". I was on tenterhooks all summer, waiting to find out how it would all be resolved. In the end, the wrap-up wasn't quite as good as the set-up had been, but it was still quite good. Gosh, I'd forgotten how obnoxious Commander Shelby was. Although, with the passage of time, one does question Riker turning down promotion over and over again.
This was probably the zenith of the Borg, they were never quite such an "unstoppable" threat, again.
