I swear Anwar, you are more repetitive than a broken record. You keep saying that BUT WHAT IS YOUR PROOF?
The Borg are clearly far more advanced than the Federation, and have assimilated countless species at least as advanced as them over millenia. To think NONE of them thought of a viral attack is pure idiocy, and the fact the Borg still exist are proof such attacks don't work. Also we saw that when Hugh's own "infection" spread the Borg simply cut off that Cube.

Picard should have done the right thing and released that virus. He and his entire crew believed the virus would have worked, so IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THE VIRUS WOULD HAVE REALLY WORKED OR NOT!
Sure it would, at that point the Borg weren't that interested in the Alpha Quadrant otherwise they'd have kept attacking with more than one Cube. That they didn't showed they had more pressing concerns elsewhere (or just didn't care). By launching their virus, all the Feds would do it provoke them into caring and launching a REAL attack to wipe out the Feds once and for all.

Secondly, IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU "ANTAGONIZE" THE BORG OR NOT, IF THEY WANT TO SEND A THOUSAND CUBES TO ASSIMILATE THE FEDERATION, THEY WILL DO IT REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE DO TO THEM! Picard did a foolish thing when he let Hugh go. Once again, Picard displayed total moral cowardice.
They won't want to send a 1000 Cubes until the targets make themselves worth it, and this virus would have done that. At least if they hold off on attacking it gives the Feds more time to develop better weapons and ships to fight with. By NOT provoking them you're giving yourself more time to prepare for when they WILL.
