Yeah, Marco had that in mind when he signed me on to write the Borg story (I believe he said that VOYAGER had "done them to death" or something to that effect). That was why I took a different approach, going for the whole dread feeling rather than an epic space opera with big battles, etc.
Glad you enjoyed the writing style, though. I have a couple of original sci-fi noirs, if you want to check those out. The first is HAMMERJACK
, and there's a sequel called PRODIGAL
--both are pretty dark, which is pretty de rigueur for me (God knows why--I'm such a happy guy!).
