Re: Dalek vs Borg

I'm going to have to go with the Daleks.

to paraphrase them

"We would defeat the Borg with one Dalek."

Re: Dalek vs Borg

It would start out as a draw, but like Species 8472, the Borg can't think creatively, All they want to do is inject nanoprobes etc. While the Daleks assume they are superior to all life (much like 8472) the Borg want to consume what ever tech they can.
It will be a fight at first, but the Borg will simply keep throwing drones at the Daleks and losing them. The Daleks will win by default. IMHO

Re: Dalek vs Borg

Isn't the thing about Daleks that they have never faced a credible foe, because the Doctor makes sure mankind never changes, never evolves, and never develops anything better than a 5.56mm assault rifle till the day the universe winds down? In contrast, the Borg have already faced basically every conceivable kind of foe, plus a few inconceivable ones, and persevered.

Thus, while the "infantry" in both camps wears supposedly impenetrable armor, the armor of the Borg is orders of magnitude better nevertheless. Of course, the Daleks have a very powerful anti-personnel raygun, but the Borg are accustomed to rayguns of all sorts. Funnily enough, they don't have a characteristic raygun of their own, so it remains a mystery how a Borg Drone would actually attack a Dalek warrior...

But speaking of adapting, the Daleks supposedly already know how to deal with Cybermen, while no encounter between the Borg and squat little single-person hovertanks has been reported yet.

Well you can't kill a god, though in Dalek terms I think the devil would be more apt to describe the Doctor.

Well the Doctor can get enemies to run away/back down at the mere mention of his bname.

Borg: "We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile."
Dalek: "We will exterminate you! Exterminate! Exterminate!"
Borg: "Extermination is irrelevant."
Dalek: "You are irrelevant!"

The Daleks totally win this fight.

FTFY.

Daleks for the win. The Borg are too well-rounded, rational and lacking in ambition, something that the universe-threatening Daleks certainly aren't. Maybe in another several thousand years...
