Re: Anti-Borg technology and tactics

You forget that if Enterprise had fired it BEFORE they assimilated Picard, it probably would have worked.
Nope - the point is that Starfleet has nothing that could overwhelm the Borg adaptation ability by sheer force alone. The search for a weapon that works even after assimilation is futile.

You'd think they would have tried that by now
What situation so far would have called for that? The Borg aren't exactly losing or anything.

There are limits to the amount of energy a ship/cube can produce thus how strong the shields can be...
...And we have discovered that the Federation cannot reach those limits.

We don't know if it is because they just can't build bombs that are big enough - or because they don't know how to deliver such bombs. The backstage story of the three smallish spacecraft that tried to approach the Cube near Mars in "BoBW" was that they were flying bombs. Well, didn't work...
