Re: Borg designations = ranks?
I started thinking about this a few weeks ago, because of "Survival Instinct", which I've not seen in years, and maybe only once. She has the highest number (7), and bosses the others around until they start regaining their individuality. It suggests there were an 8 and 9 in the group originally, with perhaps higher authority than she.
