I'd also recommend Q & A
and Before Dishonor
. While it is disconnected from the Borg story it does introduce one recurring and one new regular (or recurring we don't know how long the character will be around yet) character. It's also a really fun Q adventure that ties most of his appearances together into one big story.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
