But then you have the strange oddity that apparentally assimilating Earth the day before Cochrane's warp flight as considered a viable option by the Collective, despite Earth of 2063 having worse technology than the Kazon
In that case, the Borg probably decided to go proactive and wipe out the Federation before it could ever exist.
I had thought I heard a line of dialog to this effect when I saw the film (every time I did so). The idea being that if the Borg eliminate Earth from becoming part of the Federation, while simultaneously establishing a foothold in the Alpha Quadrant, every encounter from Q Who onward is one the Borg will win, no matter what.
