Re: Do the Borg do research ?

The thing might be, no matter how much research the Borg do, it can never rival the yield from assimilation. After all, every assimilation victim is doing research, too - perhaps with lesser resources, but that doesn't matter because X assimilees have X ideas while the Borg Collective can only ever have one.

Thus, indigenous Borg research is derided and dismissed: it's quite on par with the Federation's, or perhaps ten or a thousand times better, but is not a significant element in the total research effort of the Collective.
