Re: What's your favorite Borg origin tale? *potential spoilers*

That being said, the only thing I thought was kinda cheesy about the Destiny version was the origin of the actual name "Borg."
Actually that's one of my favorite bits about it. The Borg having a human origin helps explain the otherwise contrived coincidence of a race of alien cyborgs just happening to have a name that sounds like part of the word "cyborg." I used to figure it was a name Magnus Hansen coined for them and that Guinan had come across at some point, but there were a lot of Delta Quadrant races in VGR that called them that too.
I really wanted to mention that in my post, but my copy wasn't at hand and I didn't want to botch the quote. It was awesome.
