Re: Do the Borg do research ?

Aside from being weapons platforms, I think Borg cube ships are also de facto research platforms--they go around looking for stuff to assimilate, and then conduct scans to see if their biological and/or technological distinctiveness can be added to the Collective.

If some previous society had been working on some highly advanced project prior to being assimilated by the Borg, then that knowledge would be passed onto the Collective and further work on the project would be continued there via the hive mind, IMO.
