Your opinion regarding the paradox means nothing by comparison to Picard/Data/crew/Starfleet's opinion.
Why? Because you know practically nothing regarding borg tech, as opposed to them.
I know plenty, and that they never would have allowed the program to disrupt more than one Cube. It was destined to fail.
You know plenty?
Then, by all means, do share some of your encyclopedic knowledge:

How can one generate effectively gravitational and antigravitational fields?
How can one generate subspace transmissions the borg use to link the drones into the hive mind?

Someone like you surely knows these trek tech rudiments.
And don't be afraid to go into details, Anwar.

If you don't even know this, you thinking you know anything of substance (beyond WILD, UNSUPPORTED SPECULATIONS) about tech as complex as the borg's is just ridiculous.

What matters is that PICARD WAS CONVINCED THE PARADOX WILL WORK. He DECIDED TO SACRIFICE BILLIONS so that he can delude himself that he's always moral.
In his subjective forum, PICARD INTENDED TO CONDEMN TO DEATH BILLIONS, when he WAS CERTAIN HE COULD SAVE THEM ALL, Anwar.
And that no one ever considered that the program might fail or be ineffective is a failing of the episode for some forced "moral quandry". Picard SHOULDN'T have been so convinced, it was just bad writing. Nechavev shouldn't have been such a militant fool to think it was foolproof either.
Bad writing? Maybe. But, Anwar, Picard - being a fictional character, created by the scenarists - IS this bad writing. If the script depicted him as a creep willing to sacrifice BILLIONS as long as he could fool himself that he fanatically followed his sacroant, rigid rules, THEN HE IS THIS CREEP.

It's time to get pass denial to acceptance, Anwar. Alternatively, you can continue making a fool of yourself on this board.
