I have been a Star Trek fan for a long time...ESP TNG.  I am not what most of you would call a totally knowledgable fan but I know enough to get around.  I am watching TNG on Netflix now an episode at a time...just reflecting on a LOVED show.  I am to the episode entitled Conspiracy...What ever happened to this story line?  Fro what I remember there really was no mention of this story line after this show...why did they drop it?

From memory-alpha:

The writers originally intended the parasites to be agents of the Borg. Due to the Writers' Strike of 1988 as well as budget cuts, the connection between the Borg and the parasites was never established. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion)

Also, the parasites are featured in various novels and comics.
