File Description

The Borg have long been an interest of mine, at least, relative to Armada II, because they don't make sense. In First Contact and in "Best of Both Worlds" we saw one cube do untold amounts of damage to Federation interests on its own. Yet the Borg somehow need stations and support vessels to do their worst in A2. It doesn't make sense.

Until now.

Using an often-overlooked "mamacube" from the stock game, adm_tyler has given us the new Borg Command Cube. Not only does it contain more powerful (and more canon) cutting beams and torpedoes, but it also includes a multi-targeting holding beam capable of doing immense damage. This one vessel on its own is sufficient to take down numbers in your fleet. And does that ever make it intimidating.

Note that I say "intimidating" rather than "resistance is futile". Because resistance, in this case, is a balanced game. Sure, it's got the abilit y to regenerate AND the ability to initiate transwarp portals on command, but it's also balanced to the stock A2 fairly well. It's not as impossible as Wolf 359, but not over as fast as Scorpion, Part I. That's the best way I can describe it. It's powerful without being a 'god ship'. And it's easy on your computer, so you don't have to worry about it assimilating your operating speed while it assimiliates all your base.

Everything you love about the Borg, or love to blow up, is yours in this cube. And best of all, it uses a stock model to do the job! And download Curtis' Borg texture upgrade to truly enjoy it!

So until the day when someone comes up with One Very Devastatingly "Resistance Is Futile" Borg Cube, this one does the trick REALLLLY nicely. Download it now and find out for yourself!
