Re: V'Ger origins: Borg or not?
A Voyager probe, designed in the 1970's, would have seemed about as sophisticated as a toaster to a planet full of intelligent machines. Why they would have "adopted" it and built a massive ship to send it back home never made any sense to me.
Anyway, I don't see any connection between Vger and the Borg.
The human adventure is just beginning.
Don't try to be a great man, just be a man, and let history make its own judgments.
