I <3 the Borg
I have heard of the Borg. I had not, until this week, seen them in my Star Trek Voyager. Yes, it is mine.
Initial reaction: they are cool. Scary. Ominous. Imposing. Powerful. I like them as an enemy. Much, much better than the Videan’s or the Kazon’s, which is what the Delta Quadrant has thrown at us so far. Also, I have to say that for a race of robotic beings on sci-fi television, I prefer the Borg to Stargate’s Replicators. There was something not threatening about the Replicators. They were more like bugs than a scary race. Perhaps the Borg are more frightening because they assimilate humans. The Replicators just make more, and more, and more, and more of themselves…until Sam Carter finds a way to disrupt their communication field.
Note: The introduction of the Borg means that we get to meet Seven of Nine very soon. 🙂
