Re: Do the Borg do research ?

I suppose the Borg would do well at theoretical research and modeling. Experimental research wouldn't be their thing, except by trial-and-error, the way their drones are thrown at a problem until one or more make a breakthrough (such as determining the frequency of a phaser and which shield nutation to use by seeing which ones die).

It occurs to me that their Omega molecule research may have only been a massive computer model, and that seeing it "stabilize" in the model made the Collective think it could be harnessed in reality.
