Re: The Borg and the Matrix

Not sure I understand the question? Unimatrix Zero is a byproduct of the Borg as explained in Voyager. So yeah, there is a connection.

Re: The Borg and the Matrix

I think the OP is asking if Unimatrix Zero and the Matrix (as in Keanu Reeves, Neo, Trinity etc) are connected.

I always thought The Matrix would be best viewed as a sequel to the Terminator movies...

Surely no one is quite so stupid as to be asking that?

No, the question is, are the Borg connected to "The Matrix,"
Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in the movie Commando.

(let off some warp plasma Bennet ...)

Re: The Borg and the Matrix

Woops, I phrased the question wrong. What I meant to say is is the Q continuum connected to unimatrix zero?

Re: The Borg and the Matrix

I think the Unimatrix zero is like a dream...resulting from some brain activities resulting in some brain waves being created...

Re: The Borg and the Matrix

I'm thinking that Q syphens off and drains the nural psychic energy that is being deprived the Borg and that energy is being used to create unimatrix zero and the Q continuum.

Re: The Borg and the Matrix

That could be a possibility... The brain is such a mysterous organ and with Borg advanced technologies...I supposed anything is possible.

The queen said it was something in the brain wave frequency...when she was trying to isolate it. I guess all the people had the same frequency when they were regenerating that caused it.

The Q consider the Borg a toy; a play thing. They throw the Borg at other entities and see what happens.
