I've read the three volumes... and disliked it.
Not only are there things that are not quite correct, the author turned the Borg into a heap of failures.
I think I'll stick to the first explanations of their origins...
Thank you though, despite I disliked the story, it was not written in a bad way.
Good amusement, but IMHO complete non-canonical....
Each to their own, I guess.
How are the Borg "a heap of failures" though? They destroyed almost half of Starfleet, hundreds of planets, killed 64 billion people... it was only a miracle that saved Earth.
