Borg colony scooping
 
What do you think the borg do with the colonies and cities they haul out of planets?
Do they just convert all that matter to add to their cubes?
Or are they just incinerated craters from torpedoes or whatever that they fire at the planets.
(Yes I searched a few pages, this doesn't seem to have been asked...as a thread anyways.)

I'd wager it depends entirely on what was there before. If there's a chance for something new or useful to be added to the collective, it will be assimilated - depending on the current needs of the collective, something as simple as more drones might be a sufficient reason.

If it's just the same old stuff they've encountered before and it puts up some resistance (futile as it may be)? Pewpew.

I always just assumed that they transmuted the matter to fit their needs and added the matter to the cube in question.

They probably take what they need and destroyed and/or added the rest to there collective matter

Scooped? I figured the Borg just yanked the entire colony with their tractor beams.

^I don't think he was implying they used a gigantic shovel.

So that's how the Borg Spheres are made?

Well, That Giant Shovel looks Quite effective but the ice cream scoop pre shapes the materials.

I always assumed they just destroyed the colonies after assimilating the colonists.
