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

Originally, the idea was that the Borg were just one species that willingly turned itself into an organic/technology hybrid unified as one mind and that they went around searching for new technologies they could use for themselves (destroying the origin of said technology in the process, making it more unique?).

This got retconned by TNG itself so that they went around assimilating entire species as well as their technology, so it's a case of changed premise.

Frankly, both were a bit too nebulous and the whole Borg concept could've used some pre-planning if they intended them to be anything more than a one-shot foe.
