Re: I liked the Borg more before the Borg Queen and Q before Voyager.

A. Full agreement re. Borg.

B. I could never stand Q. He's smarmy; plus an omnipotent character makes any decisions and actions by mere humans ultimately moot.

C. Back to Borg - in real life, Roddenberry talked about the possibility of our evolving into a social organism with a collective, greater mind (the internet, anyone?) in Yvonne Fern's Gene Roddenberry: The Last Conversation (U. of Cal. Press, 1994). He is actually ok with the possibility, but acknowledges they had to make such a concept scary for commercial t.v.
