A Janeway Locutus would be the scariest of all.

Sisko had no personal knowledge of the ENT-D crew, so he'd be less effective than was Picard.

If the Borg cube was up against the USS Saratoga, assimilating first officer Sisko might have made a difference there.

Otherwise, Sisko is just another meat puppet Borg slave.

The Sisko would have assimilated the Collective with the sheer power of his badassness.

Re: Wonder How Formidable a Sisko Locutus Would Be?

In an alternate universe depicted in one of the novels, Sisko was assimilated at Wolf 359, and yet still managed to become the Emissary, even as a Borg.

Because he's just that badass.

Any particular reason why the Borg would want the first officer of such a small ship?

When Picard was taken, the Borg took the time to explain to him why - he was the captain of the most powerful ship Starfleet had, and thus, he would be their spokesman for the assimilation of humanity.

Given the Borg's own experiences with time travel, it's possible that they would be aware of Sisko's future exploits within the Federation.

That never made any sense to me. Why wouldn't the Borg just come in and assimilate the crap out of everyone? Why did they need a spokesman? What did the Borg plan to speak about? Maybe try to convince people that being assimilated really wasn't so bad after all?

Its possible the Borg did this with others. There's the initial contact (TNG 'The Neutral Zone'), threat assessment (TNG 'Q Who') and then assimilation (TNG 'The Best of Both Worlds, Part One').

Or it could just be how they handled spacefarin' races that could put up a defense, since Picard's tactical knowledge was put to use to get all the way to Earth.

The Borg traveled backward in time, not forward.

If they ever assimilated Sisko they would immediately realize they should send more than one cube at a time.
