Out right assimilating the earth would seem to be a bad idea. Better to threaten them, thus spurring them to develop new technology. Which you then assimilate from time to time. In essence farming the civilization.
I like this idea. The initial Borg incursions generated technological growth resulting in new weapons and defensive measures, perhaps only sending a single Cube to Earth every couple of years is their way of farming the Federation...
