Re: Borg adaptation ability

The thing is, the Borg would still adapt no matter WHAT weapon you're using. If you suddenly switch to slugthrowers in the middle of the fight, then the next wave of drones that comes after you are the ones with thick armor plating and heavy kinetic barriers that your bullets can't easily penetrate. In that case you either switch to phasers and hope the reinforced drones can't shake that off too, or you find a NEW way to kill them and wait for them to adapt again.

Or, if you have the misfortune of being in TNG, your only option is to [tech] your phaser's [tech] so that it's effective again.
