Re: Should the Borg be the villain in Trek 3?

The original concept of the borg was inherently limited - with them, you can only do a battlestar galactica story (defeat after defeat with no happy ending - depressing/boring) or you can show them being defeated AKA having significant chinks in their armour.

And if you want to use the borg as more than a monolithic/simplistic antagonist fit for only a few horror-themed episodes, you will have to explore what makes the borg tick and how they tick - meaning, you will have to lose their hitchcockian unknowability.
