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

I suppose the message was delivered better in "Descent", even though they never ONCE outright say "This ship is weaker than a Borg Cube"?

Was it delivered better in "Dark Frontier" even though they never once outright say "The Probe is weaker than a Cube"?

The implicit message that the ships were weaker was delivered "better" in those episodes because, in those cases, it existed. Those ships WERE intended from day one TO be lesser than cubes. Not so with the cubes in VOY. When you concoct the "message" where it didn't exist, that falls purely into the realm of fanwank.

Tell me, what is it you want exactly from the show in regards to them taking on a Tactical Cube that doesn't end with them being spineless cowards? "We found some alien tech that will temporarily make our weapons stronger"? "Q agreed to destroy the Cube for us"? "We have a super-teleport machine that we'll use to teleport the Borg Cube into a black hole"?
I've completely lost track of what your point is. What are you asking and why?
