Different from the novelverse, yes... but rather similar to the alternate timelines I alluded to in Watching the Clock, futures where the events of Destiny never occurred. Make of that what you will...
Are you now saying/implying that Braga does infact read the novels?
Huh? Of course not, why would you think that? It's hardly unusual for different creators working in the same universe to arrive at similar ideas -- in fact, it's pretty much unavoidable. And it's not as if "the Borg eventually conquer the whole galaxy" is a difficult idea to come up with. I'm just suggesting that, while of course this comic is offering a separate interpretation than the novelverse does, the reader could choose to interpret it as an alternate timeline following the precedent that's already been laid out in the prose. Although, of course, I haven't read the comic yet so I don't know for sure whether that could work.
