Re: 'Dark Frontier' Where the Borg went wrong?

^ When you're in close proximity to an enemy, you're in a much better position to learn how to accurately and efficiently deal with that enemy. If the Borg had remained the unstoppable force they were portrayed as being in TNG, even with Voyager learning from each encounter with them, we would've ended up with a virtual stalemate and things would have gotten very stale, story- wise, very quickly.

Re: the Defiant, it might've been designed with the purpose of fighting the Borg in mind, but, IIRC, it didn't fare too well in its one encounter with them.
