Where did that "VīGer and the Borg are somehow connected"-notion originate anyway?
Iīm not sure I remember this correctly...but was it brought up for the first time in a DVD commentary? Something Roddenberry said?
Roddenberry did make a comment about V'ger being the origin of the Borg. Though, his comment may have been a joke. I believe that's the origin of the idea, but it's possible the speculation may have started before he made the comment.
