Re: V'Ger origins: Borg or not?
Since their dogmas don't come close to matching up (V'Ger was to see all it can see, learn all it can learn and return that information to the creator, whilst the Borg seek to achieve dominance and perfection through the assimilation of other species and their technology) I'd say that the two have nothing to do with one another.
Exactly. The Borg could not have cared less who created them. (Assuming they even remembered which species was their original.) They only cared about themselves. V'Ger was always driven by the directive to serve its creator.
