Anyone interested in a "Borg Ship Recognition Manual"?

Granted, only 7 different Borg ships have actually appeared onscreen with a couple of more implied, but I've always been intrigued by what people could come up with in trying to imagine different Borg ships down through the ages.

Eh, I was kind of disappointed when they started making new Borg ships. The cube was cool. And I thought the sphere in FC was a neat way to expand on Borg vessel designs, but I really wish they had stopped there.

I put a Borg Hypercube in the Alien Spotlight comic, since they were Borg from the future.

But, in general, I prefer the mathematical elegance of simply the Cube and the Sphere. (Although, after seeing the Borg Sphere in the movie footage, my friends and I started calling the film "Star Trek: First TicTac.")

No. It would be boring.

Maybe we could have Borg ship blueprints, and maybe *they* would finally show us where the bowling alley is.

Personally, I thought the diamond was pretty cool too.

As for the book, I'm sorry but I really don't think that would work. If are going to be doing something like this you need more than 3 or four types of ships.

Make it a kids book and have the Borg Queen teach young drones about different shapes.

I think a book about identifying Borg ships is a great idea. In fact, I threw together some concept art for it:


Can you spot the Borg cube?

Okay, this book, I'd buy!

(But only if it's canon.)
