Re: FC plothole? Why didn't the Borg create the vortex in the Delta Q?
Do we know for sure that they stopped at Wolf 359 to attack the fleet or if the fleet engaged them first (highly likely), causing the Borg to take care of the situation?
As far as Mars is concerned, I'm more on the side of seeing that not as an engagement, but more the Borg doing a test of their fire control system. They stopped to fight there the same way I stop when I step on an ant walking down the street.
