This Borg vs Dominion Thingy

Has anyone ever asked: Who would win in a hand to hand fight between a Drone and Jem Warrior (say a 1st or 2nd)

I could watch the Jems beat the stuffings out of a Drone all night

No, I don't think anyone has ever done a versus thread before, especially concerning the Borg or Jem'Hadar.

Re: This Borg vs Dominion Thingy

in physical combat I think the Jem'Hadar win it easily. They're genetically bred for it, while the Borg's technical additions give them a lot of vulnerabilities on their body. Also, the Borg collective doesn't value individual drones, so there's no reason to make them great fighters.

On a larger level though, the Borg win for their superior technology and ability to adapt.

Maybe, but I bet it would be the Mother of all Battles!

The Borg often seem so unwieldy... the Jem'hadar would win easily.

I agree. Still, I'd like to see it. I hate the (overused) Borg

One drone vs one Jem'Hadar? There's not even a question. The Borg don't really seem to bother protecting themselves against weapons that aren't energy based.

I'm sort of surprised the Borg don't use phaser implants.

Borg all the way. It wouldn't even come down to hand to hand because as soon as the Borg ships adapt to the dominion technology it would be all over.

Re: This Borg vs Dominion Thingy

Dominion vs TNG Borg, Borg.

Dominion vs Voyager Borg, that's a closer fight.

I think the Borg would eventually win, but it'd take a very long time, and the founders would get away. But they'd probably send only one cube at a time, and they'd probably be able to handle the first cube.

I can imagine, in the long run, the founders just kinda sacrificing all their subjects and most of their Gem'Hadar and just escaping to another galaxy.

Depends on the type of Borg.

If it's the normal Collective Drone, then maybe the Jem'Hadar could win.

If it was against one of the "Descent" Borg who have good reflexes and actually use their disruptor weapons? I'd bet on the Borg.

We did see that in "Descent," with the individual Borg.

At the start of the fight, there's one Borg and one Jem'Hadar.
At the end of the fight, there are 2 Borg.

Not if they shrouded and were beamed over...
