Actually, Q yelled at his son never to provoke the Borg when Q Jr. did exactly that to Voyager.

When Q himself "threw the Borg" at the Enterprise D it was only because he was acting out after Picard rejected him.

I'm a Commodore now. It gives me access to a vast amount of too much knowledge.

Woops, I phrased the question wrong. What I meant to say is is the Q continuum connected to unimatrix zero?
Yes, it is. In the same way that the Pacific ocean is connected to the Internet.

Re: The Borg and the Matrix

they keep these threads open for us to dig up and fall into again,, I think if the unimatrix was related the blue pill matrix and if captain Kirk was still in the nexus then my program is running fine.., yeah program running fine. but if, the unimatrix is related to the red pill then we are in trouble, right? Maybe we can just wake-up in a different kind of matrix or not.

I really believe that if Picard or Riker had just cast aside their prudishness and given Q one single night of unbridled passion and drunkenness, the Federation would have been a better place.
