But as far as the novel continuity is concerned, they have only the origin given here.
It's interesting that you bring that up, because now I'm wondering.
Do the Mirror Universe Borg (discussed in another thread here
) share that origin? I'm not finished with Lost Souls
yet, but I can't imagine how the origin Dave describes would even work
in the MU.
So it occurs to me. Maybe they're refugees from another universe? And because they are, they're even more
degraded, if such a thing is possible. (I'm thinking they could be the Borg equivalent of the "Real Time" Cybermen -- stripped down and almost feral.)
I dunno. Just speculamating.
