So how did Riker and crew defeat the Borg in that reality? Did everything happen exactly as portrayed except Picard did not survive the destruction of the Cube; or Picard was able to resist long enough for the Deflector Dish weapon to work.
I would like to think that everything happened as it did in BoBW except that Picard did not survive the destruction of the cube.
What other ideas are out there?
That's what I always thought too, things proceeded mostly according to our universe's BOBW, but they were somehow unable to rescue him.
