Re: I, Borg and Descent

I like "I, Borg" and I think "Descent" had a promising follow-up that quickly went downhill. I also think the Borg queen is an okay idea that's not always been used effectively, and that's led many fans to have an unclear idea of exactly what she's supposed to be in relation to the rest of the Collective. I think of the queen (or queens, assuming there's more than one at a time, which seems logical to me as a redundancy factor) as being what she implied in FC, a sort of locus to control the drones. A nexus that provides structure to the Collective, because the drones lack the will to do so on their own.
