Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

How could you have sidestepped this bollocks as well?

Were you in a "relationship" with someone who made you waste too much time watching Greys Anatomy?

Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

I have been very busy watching all of Stargate, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe. This has taken me rather a long time.. finally took a break to watch some shows actually made this decade.

Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

I saw 12 episodes of the Secret Circle yesterday.

I think I'm sprouting a tiny little vagina.

I bet you've seen every episode of Charmed.

I'm right, aren't I.

Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

recently.

Got through the lot of it "again" in a couple weeks, about 6 months ago.

But I haven't bothered with the season 9 comic books.

So a question presents itself to the masses who inhabit this particular board-

how would YOU have written the Borg to be better than they were portrayed on VOY.

Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

Show a couple episodes where Voyager has to run away.

(Janeway said in an episode that she was sick of running away and hiding, but we never saw it.)

Or an episode where they're on silent running hiding in an ocean as a Borg convoy passes by very slowly.

Sheridan spent years running from the Shadows.

O'Niel couldn't do Jack (Look! It's a Pun!) against the Goul'd or the Ori in the beginning.

Obviously not invincible, the Borg are still a vastly superior technological species with the fire power and man power to dwarf anything Kathryn can muster but she treated them like bullies on a school yard, rather than bullies invading Poland.

Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

Borg storylines it would have been wonderful to see:

1. Chakotay is assimilated and never returns.

2. The Doctor grows breasts on Neelix and he becomes wet nurse to the borg baby. One episode devoted to Naomi's sibling rivalry issues that this creates.

3. Have 7 remain bald and damp looking for half a season. Deal with the crew's fear of her.

Oh, have a crewman ask to be assimilated, or at least up graded.

"i want to be stronger and faster and smarter, and you can make all those things and more... Otherwise Janeway is going to get me killed like half my friends form the lower decks... Could I have one of those personal forcefields? That would be amazing... Please, I don't want to die."

Re: Why do people keep saying Voyager weakened the Borg?

I think a knowledge addict might very well want to get assimilated. You're plugged into the biggest database ever.

Key word, addict. You just HAVE TO KNOW what it will be like and in the end you have no conditions left.

Just have the 8472 kill all of them, while the Borg kill nearly all the 8472 at the same time, reducing both to minor forces that are little threat to anyone. Then focus on how the destruction of the Collective and spread of the 8472's tech affects the DQ's balance of power.

XD the people who hated the show wanted the tough Intrepid class to be assimilated or Destroyed or even the Borg Queen slapping Janeway in Dark Frontier/Unimatrix 0.
