Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

But the real culprit is Star Trek First Contact.
I don't agree. Voyager encountered the Borg so incredibly often, that it made them look weak. Look at how massive the Cubes were in First Contact and in The Best of Both Worlds; they dwarf the cubes in Voyager. This makes them a much less threatening enemy in my opinion in VOY. Then Voyager goes on to destroy entire groups of Borg ships without getting a scratch, while in TNG one cube took out 40 starships and in FC one cube is back to being very threatening to large amounts of ships. 8472 also didn't help the Borg in being that powerful race that was supposed to exemplify why humans were naive in exploring the galaxy. Instead this species easily destroyed the Borg, making them look weak. This is just my opinion though, so feel free to rip me apart.
I never got the whole notion of humans being naive exploring the galaxy. I think it's more naive to think that by just staying home on Earth that somehow makes us safe. Sure there are dangers; by wandering into space you let other species know about you, but I think I'd rather know what's out there then wait for the baddies to just drop in on us a la Independence Day.
