Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise travel back in time to stop the Borg from assimilating Earth.


From the deepest, darkest reaches of space came the greatest threat the Federation had ever faced: the Borg. Half organic/half mechanical, the Borg were relentless and bent on conquering and "assimilating" all intelligent life; a single Borg vessel destroyed thirty-nine Federation starships, decimating Starfleet.
Stronger and more dangerous than ever, they are ready to launch a new attack against the Federation, one that threatens its past... its present... and its future.
Only the courage and determination of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew can prevent the Borg from striking at the heart of the Federation and Earth.
