No, I get it, I just have problems reconciling the Borg having any influence on Vidiians in that timeframe, when they had not assimilated enough technology to get that far. It's a long way outside of...

The Borg lost how many drones when they were experimenting with synthesizing Omega? They have trillions of drones, experimenting on the population of a contained cube would not be much of a loss.

"Synth" was just a shorthand they adopted for all synthetic life. Whether sentient holograms were in this as well is unknown. Related: the status of the Doctor is unknown.

Pity. You would have liked the episode. Riker and Troi show up, mention the Kzinti, and show off their daughter and dead son.

I'd drop my monocle into my glass of champagne in shock at that admission, but I admitted to watching Happy Gilmore, so that would never happen on several different levels.

Fourth episode down. It wasn't anything to lose your head over, like that Romulan did.

And hi, Seven.
