I understand what you're saying, what gets me is those people you say would view Picard unfavourably don't understand what he went through.
Was it Picard's fault he got assimilated?

From their POV, yeah it was. And to a degree, they might be right.

48 were mobilized.
Where does that figure come from?
Hanson says over subspace what sounds to me more like 48 than 40. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's not a gimme as far as language goes!

The Enterprise apparently did no recovery operations and there were no life signs when they reached the battle site, so the survivors were likly picked up by whatever ships were left.
And one might think they went on some sort of doomsday mode, deciding not to go to the nearby Earth because that was a lost cause already, nor to answer any hails because the Borg might track them down.
Agreed, but the fact that there were no life signs in the area (That one I did hear right! Lol) indicates that the survivors however many there were had left the scene of battle, also had any survivors been within transporter range, it's likely that Riker would have ordered them to swoop in fast beam them up quickly and move on.
Many thanks to Nerys Myk for my awesome avatar!

Re: A Wolf 359?

Well remember, Hansen (I'm thinking that's the right Admiral) said the Klingons were sending ships. So it's likely that the Klingons got late to the fight and scooped up some survivors, along with whatever surviving starships did as well. Then, as Voyager informed up, we know some captives were taken and shipped back to the Delta Quad. So it's very likely that it's was a combination of the three things that lead to the area being vacant when the 1701-D rolled up on the scene.

Here's a ghastly thought, how many people in those escape-pods committed suicide upon when they saw the battle doing south, thinking they were going to be assimilated.

Probably not many - Picard was the first one they knew of being assimilated and that appeared like a special case. I can't see Starfleet equipping escape pods with suicide pills either. More likely after First Contact events.

I'm not sure Klingons could have scooped up the survivors. They'd have gone straight after the cube to fight it - and would have been destroyed. So if Sisko had been picked up by them, he would be dead. It's unlikely they couldn't catch up with the cube as the Enterprise did so and made no mention of overtaking support ships.
