Borg attack the Federation

Picard is abducted by the Borg and assimilated, becoming Locutus of Borg. The cube continued to Earth and engaged the Federation in the “Battle of Wolf 359.” Upon arrival at Earth, an away team from the Enterprise rescued Picard and used his connection to the Borg to destroy the cube. The assimilation, however, had profound effects on Picard.

Second Borg Attack

The Borg attacked again in the “Battle of Sector 001.” The Enterprise initially did not participate in the battle, but Picard realized he could “hear” the Borg because of his prior assimilation and decided to intervene.
