Re: If "classic" Trek had introduced the Borg...

I don't know, but what comes to mind for me immediately is Theiss's design for the spacesuits used in "The Tholian Web." He used various colors of metallic fabric to cover cut-out shapes (perhaps of styrofoam or light wood, I don't know) along with findings to represent controls, connectors and other techie elements along with piping/cording wrapped in the same materials to simulate hoses and cabling. It was a dramatic and inspired use of fairly conventional costuming materials to suggest technological designs.
