. . .This means that any and all measures to nullify this advantage of the borg should be routinely taken - up to and including suicide pills for all command level personnel. . .
Suicide pills would have been useless in this situation though. A Borg materialized right next to Picard and immediately incapcitated him, there was no time to take one. And with no pockets in the uniforms, I don't know where he could have kept it. His boot heel maybe.

He definitely should have had one for the commando mission in "Chain of Command."

If nothing else, the communicator badges should have been equipped to self-detonate (perhaps even remotely) for such scenarios.
I'm thinking of self-termination pills that can't be stopped by someone merely preventing you from reaching to your pocket - spy-fiction features numerous examples (such as a tooth containing an undetectable substance, etc).
