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

It's like I said, the Borg HAD to be powered down for use in VOY since otherwise the show would be over in 1 minute or so.

VOY wasn't allowed to create it's own nemesis race (like TNG had with the Romulans/Borg/Cardassians or DS9 with the Dominion), so they had to fall back on existing ones. The Borg were the only ones that qualified for VOY's situation and since no one would've tuned in for a story of VOY dealing with alien refugees fleeing the Borg they had to have them square off with the Borg themselves.

Thus, the power-down.
