Picard and his crew travel back in time to Earth in the year 2063 to protect Zefram Cochrane from the Borg who are trying to stop his maiden warp flight, which would in turn stop first contact with the Vulcans from happening. To preserve history and the march of technological innovation, Picard and his crew must defeat the Borg aboard the Enterprise and save Cochrane's life.

The Borg: We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctivness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.
Picard: I'm about to commit a direct violation of our orders. Any of you who wish to object should do so now. It will be noted in my log.
Data: Captain, I believe I speak for everyone here, sir, when I say... to hell with our orders.
Picard: I think our goal should be to puncture one of the plasma coolant tanks. Data?
Data: Excellent idea. Plasma coolant will liquify organic material on contact.
Worf: But the Borg are not entirely organic.
Picard: True. But like all cybernetic life forms, they cannot survive without their organic counterparts.
Data: Captain, I believe I am experiencing anxiety. It is an intriguing sensation. A most distracting--
Picard: Data, I'm sure it's a fascinating experience, but perhaps you should deactivate your emotion chip for now.
Data: Good idea, sir. [BEEP] Done.
Picard: Data, there are times when I envy you.
Picard: Good, they haven't broken the encryption code yet.
Lily: Who? Those bionic zombies you told me about. The--
Lily: Borg. Sounds Swedish.
Borg Queen: Are you familiar with physical forms of pleasure.
Data: If you are referring to... sexuality... I am... fully functional. Programmed in... multiple techniques.
Worf: I must object to this course of action.
Picard: The objection is noted.
Worf: With all due respect, sir, I believe you are allowing your personal experience with the Borg to influence your judgement!
Picard: You're afraid. You want to destroy the ship and run away. You coward.
Worf: If you were any other man, I would kill you where you stand.
Picard: Get off my bridge.
