GEORDI
Commander, reading subspace field
fluctuations within the Borg ship.
Looks like they’re regenerating…
restoring power. They could be
capable of warp any minute.

Riker’s mind working… covering the options

RIKER

GEORDI
registering impact of the pending decision
Ready, sir.

BEVERLY

back, I might be able to

Push in to Riker

RIKER
This is our only chance to destroy
them… if they get back into warp,
our weapon becomes useless.

SHELBY
We’ll go back… we’ll sabotage
them again if we have to…

RIKER
shakes his head
We can’t maintain pursuit. We
don’t have the power.

Prepare to fire.

SHELBY

Get Admiral Hanson on subspace…

RIKER
Belay that order, Lieutenant.
There’s no time…

RIKER

Picard-Borg appears… he speaks with a single but
metallic Borg voice… a version of his own

PICARD/BORG
I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance
is futile. Your life as it has
been is over. From this time
forward, you will service… us.

And on an extreme closeup of Riker… a deep breath,
then firm without raising his voice

RIKER
Mister Worf… fire.
