T’was probably the best episodes of the entire series and a pivotal moment in Picard’s character. Hard to imagine you’ve seen the series but forgot this bit. But just in case, google the episodes Best of Both Worlds.

Borg two-parter and a slower episode set after those events. Some of it was good. Riker as Captain. Picard at home in France. Worf's parents were a bit meh.

Sorry, that does not mean anything to me.
I not watched for years so need more description if you got any.
He is captured by the Borg and partially transformed into a Borg, with the aim of leading the Borg cube in the coming battle against the Federation's fleet of starships. From memory it's at the end of Season 4, possibly even an end-of-season cliffhanger.

We're reminded of his time as a Borg in the movie "Star Trek: First Contact", where the Borg Queen repeatedly refers to his time as Locutus of Borg.

Ok, get that part about partially transformed by Borg but now I confused as you are saying there are seasons after that so if new series made, surely it follows from the end of last season as far as his own character. I thought earlier you were suggesting a movie Nemisis was latest story line with Picard character in it.

I've never watched it in any conscious order. Remember, this tv series was from before a time watching episodes in order became more important like we are doing now with recent decades of tv shows. I've not watched that tv show regularly since mid 90's but seen movies from time to time and random episode on tv. Too long ago to remember exactly what happens in what order. Would actually need to sit down watching them which trying to avoid doing right now to get up to date with where new series will take off from.

I wasn't suggesting anything - I think you have me confused with another poster?

Picard had the Borg components removed, and there were 4 more series of TNG which followed after these events. The movies followed on from the TV series. The last of these was Nemesis, which makes it the last story line featuring Picard prior to the forthcoming "ST: Picard".

Given what we know of the plot already, I would suggest the episodes Best of Both Worlds parts 1 and 2, and I, Borg (a major character in the new series is from this) plus the movies First Contact and Nemesis. That’s everything you need to be up to speed, except maybe the first five mins of the 2009 reboot because that kicks off a plot point as well.

In terms of I, Borg, are you referring to Hugh? Is he in this new series?

Love me a bit of TNG...

Always get a good giggle out of Worfs character battling his demons in a human environment and the ethical/honour battle he navigates. He holds my biggest LOL moment when he has to deliver Keikos baby with no other knowledge on how to do it, except for some Starfleet simulation he once completed while training. His reactions when things aren't going as the simulation did are priceless 😂

First Contact (Movie) is easily my fav of the entite crop and a regular goto if in that trekie mood.
