Re: [First Contact] Question about the Borg

The Borg's behavior at any given moment is generally driven by the specific needs of the scene/episode/movie's plot rather than by a hard set of rules - generally if they're trying to set an eerie tone you have Borg wandering around ignoring the crew; if they're creating a sense of danger/urgency/action, you have Borg running around attacking our heroes on sight.

And there's nothing wrong with that approach. I recall JMS saying in an interview that he was often asked technical questions about how fast the spaceships in Babylon 5 could travel. His answer was always that "they move at the speed of plot"; that is to say, they'll get there as fast as the plot needs them to.
