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

I think the concept of the queen was completely unnecessary.
I preferred the original Borg where there was no leader of any kind (nothing but a Collective).
Choosing a representative in BoBW was a special circumstance in preparation for mass assimilation, nothing more.

Voyager did good with the Borg in 'Scorpion'.
Enterprise as well in 'Regeneration' - hence why all 3 episodes were great.

Mind you, I enjoyed the episodes with the Queen, but I did feel she weakened the Borg.
It introduced a flaw.
Furthermore, the range of emotions she portrayed was 'too Human' if you ask me.

Though this is hardly Voyager's fault.
It only went along with what TNG did.
We are who we choose to be but also have predefined aspects of our personalities we are born with, and make art that defines us.
