Re: Borg vs kenetic weapons

It has always seemed to me that a weapon that utilizes energy as ammunition (phasers, disrupters, etc) would be easier to disperse with shields, which are also just structured energy, than weapons that drive a mass (swords, pistols, railguns, etc). Against those, the strength of physical armor would become much more important. For the Borg to adapt to energy weapons merely requires them to adjust the frequency and power used in their personal shields. The only way for them to adapt to mass-driven weapons is to improve the physical armor worn by each drone - and there is probably more of a limit to what each drone can be outfitted with in that regard.
