Shaw, as he explains in a single episode, was current on the Battle of Wolf-359, the Borg assault from the well-known “Subsequent Technology” episode “The Better of Each Worlds” (September 24, 1990). He defined that, on the time, he was solely a younger engineer, keen to begin his profession on a Federation starship. The Borg assault, led by an assimilated Picard, worn out his ship’s complete senior employees and 40 or so different officers that outranked him. Shaw needed to take command. Being a captain, it appears, was a profession monitor he by no means needed to be on, however was caught on nonetheless. 

Shaw, then, checked out each Picard and Seven of 9 with a less-than-diplomatic eye. Traumatized and caught with a job he sort of hates, Shaw resented that Seven and Picard demanded respect. All he noticed have been the soulless cyborgs they as soon as have been. Ultimately, Shaw’s suspicions could be confirmed true; Picard’s mind by no means totally shed its Borg affect and allowed his progeny to infiltrate a whole fleet of starships. #ShawWasRight

So, there is a mentorship there as a result of they only had that disagreement about penalties and whatnot. He desires her to be nice. In that second, permitting her to have that satisfaction.”
