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

If they had actually gotten there in time, seen the Cube do this, and just sit there and watch?

Yes, yes they would be.

When the Borg start assimilating the Enterprise E in First Contact, Picard and crew are escaping into a Jeffries tube. During this scene, a crewman yells out to Picard for help, as he is being assimilated. Picard moves closer to this crewman and shoots him dead with a phaser something Lilly gives him hell over later on
Mercy killing is better than nothing. If Picard had just turned around and run off without doing anything, then this would count.

PICARD: "They invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back."
That quote made no sense, since we never saw or heard of any Borg attacks where the Feds fell back or ran off.
