OVERVIEW:

The Borg, a massive organization of cybernetic organisms assimilated from other species, is one of the most fearsome and unrelenting forces in the Milky Way galaxy, having spread their influence into all four quadrants and beyond, even into transdimensional realms. The origins of the Borg are unknown, although they apparently originated in the Delta Quadrant. But equally mysterious are why and how they started their imperialistic mission of assimilation and their quest for "perfection." The Borg operate under a collective consciousness, whereby the thoughts of each drone are interconnected with all others in what is referred to as the "Hive Mind," eliminating any sense of individuality. In this regard the Borg Collective is much like an insect colony, with a "Queen" at the apex of the hierarchy.

In striving for their version of "perfection," the Borg assimilate civilizations whose technology they are interested in. When encountering a ship that catches their attention, the Borg usually will first sweep it with their sensors and then transport drones over to investigate the technology more closely. If they deem the vessel and its occupants worthy of assimilation, they will typically introduce themselves by saying, "We are the Borg. Existence as you know it is over. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile." They will then acquire the vessel by force and assimilate the occupants by first injecting them with nanoprobes, then implanting cybernetic technology in their bodies. The assimilated individual loses all sense of identity — his body and mind are turned entirely over to the Borg and their purposes.

Prior to the first documented Federation encounter with the Borg in 2365 by the U.S.S. Enterprise-D, the existence of the Borg was largely rumor and hearsay based on sketchy accounts from the El-Aurians and other affected species. But it was on the basis of those rumors that exobiologists Magnus and Erin Hansen sought and gained approval from the Federation Council on Exobiology to seek out the Borg in 2355. The Hansens traveled deep into the Beta Quadrant on their science vessel, the U.S.S. Raven, until they disappeared into a transwarp conduit and were never heard from again. It was later learned that the Hansens' ship crashed and the couple was assimilated, along with their daughter Annika, who was rescued by the U.S.S. Voyager after growing up with the Borg designation "7 of 9, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01."

Any borg vesile can be deplyed to any part of the galaxy in MINUTES, not instantally. Also, back to the point, a Borg cube could come out of know where, grab a ship and go. Remember the episode 'Dark Fronter' Seven parents followed a Borg Cube through a transwarp conduit, which took themn to the delta quadrent in minutes.

There is, however, one inconsistency. He says that any Borg ship can be deployed anywhere in the galaxy within minutes. This would more or less require a complete galaxy-wide Transwarp newtork coverage. The Borg do not have that coverage.

Im sure there was a logical reason for that? Perhaps Mr Bottors would care to inform us people what the hell he is doing?
