Fourteen years ago today, Star Trek: First Contract was released and audiences were introduced to the Borg Queen, played by Alice Krige.

Krige found that the Star Trek: The Next Generation actors were a fun bunch who genuinely liked one another. “What pops is what a truly joyful experience it was,” she said about making First Contact. “They were like the best repertory theater, that cast.

Somewhere in it he says the old adage, ‘Energy is not created or destroyed.’ And I thought of the Borg Queen. She’s been around since the beginning of time, since the Big Bang or whatever.
