Re: Borg vs kenetic weapons

I tried to reason that Picard could kill the Borg with a tommy gun because the bullets themselves were holographic, in that they were energy bolts that the Borg had not yet encountered (really, the idea of using forcefields and photons as holographic but lethal bullets was a novel one by the writers). I would think that, had a few more drones entered, their personal shields would have stopped the bullet fire, having adapted to the holographic matrix pattern or something equally technobabbly.

As for swords and other physical weapons: I dunno.
