Re: Borg plz

There are no Captain Mary T Sue Kirk novels featuring the Borg.

The Borg battle in Rogue Saucer was cool, even though it was a simulation. A realistic one though.

Borg Stories I Liked:
Engines of Destiny by Gene DeWeese
"The Beginning" in Strange New Worlds VI by Annie Reed
Homecoming by Christie Golden (although I don't count this as a "Borg Book")
The Farther Shore by Christie Golden (part two of Homecoming above, I don't consider this a true "Borg Book" either)
Thanks, I'll check them out.

Why don't you count those two as Borg books?

I read a bit of spoiler about Before Dishonor and Seven of Nine becoming "Seven of One" and wondered if I'd been redirected to fanfiction.net instead.
Homecoming and The Farther Shore are more about Voyager's return to Earth than the (horrendously bad) Borg threat they encounter there. There's a lot about the (lame) Miral Paris prophecy and some (fairly bad) hologram rights stuff.

And it's Seven of the One.

Re: Borg plz

I liked Resistance and Before Dishonour. The former being a borg attack and the latter being the reprecussions from it. And then Greater Than The Sum being the reprecussions from the reprecussions.

Re: Borg plz

I wouldn't discount Before Dishonor as a novel, I'm fully aware I'm one of its few supporters on here, but I do think it's a decent novel.

Without giving away much. As HappyDayRiot said it is the first two Voyager books set after their return to the Alpha Quadrant and is more about them coming home and coping with that. However even the part of it that involves Borg technology and that threat is not The Borg (from the Delta Quadrant, that has been a threat to SF for many years). It is a misguided Admiral in Starfleet who is trying to use that technology for very bad things.

WHAT?!?!? Before Dishonor was far from just being the repercussions of the previous book. And it in fact did have quite a large Borg attack of its own. Larger, IMO, than any other Borg attack we've seen to date.

"puts flame retarded underwear on"

I liked Before Dishonour, I read the second half of the novel in one sitting, I know it's not prefect (what is) although I'm sure this is purely coincidental and not Karma's doing because I liked it, but I did spend a few days in the hands of the NHS after

National Health Service - the reason that allegedly Brits don't have to have health insurance. (We just get MRSA, C Difficile etc)

cheers for that (there's no embarrassed face)

And KRAD, as already stated, the NHS stands for the National Health Service, luckily I came with out any hospital acquired infection and the nurses were on the whole pretty cute, but it wasn't a barrel of laughs either.

But it wouldn't have happened had the events of Resistance not happened. Like how had Q not introduced the borg to the enterprise, Wolf 359 wouldn't have happened.

And yes, i liked Before Dishonor, despite it's comical nature, half-arsed mutiny and a pirate-type character similar to Xyon. I liked it.
