Re: A Theoretical Physics Question
But it wasn't why it was designed that way. The reason why the plan worked was because Riker knew the Borg would ignore the saucer, based on the knowledge of what the saucer was when extracted from Picard. Riker was using it in a way that wasn't intended by the designers.
The Borg wouldn't ignore the saucer a second time and they wouldn't ignore the sub-components of something like the Prometheus
