Well, with the Death Star there is the matter of the small thermal exhaust port right below the main port. I guess it depends on how good the Borg are at bullseyeing Whomp Rats.
Or how many T-16's they have.

The Death Star I superlaser was unable to hit a target the size of a Borg Cube, so the Cube would have forever and a day to take it apart.
That assumes that the Death Star didn`t get lucky and just strike the Borg cube first as the Borg were saying `We are the Borg; you will be assimilated; Resistance is futile (I`m betting that the Death Star superlaser has an adjustable range and line of fire in all arcs and doesn`t only just shoot straight.)

The Borg would adapt eventually, but they'd never survive the first hit from the Death Star.

Multiple cubes? The Borg.
THIS.

Speaking of your name, Dan, I`d like to see the next Star Trek film skip a hundred years and just have Kirk & Co. handle the Borg right then and there in the 23rd century. Anybody with me on this?

Can the force stop assimilation?
I doubt it. It takes high doses of radiation to destroy Borg nanoprobes, and the Force is...not exactly that.
Kes was mentally able to destroy a nano probe. Can the force do the same? Plus there is force regeneration. Could they just destroy the effected cells and regenerate what's lost?

Re: Who would prevail in an armed conflict?

Beam over and disable the weapon first? Approach from the opposite side? I'm surprised by some of these responses. Seems some people watched a very different version of Star Trek than the one I've seen. One where the Borg have something resembling intelligence or common sense.

How did this version of First Contact play out? I'm guessing it was a short movie.

Interesting thing about the Borg hive mind -- has it ever been established that it's *purely* technological? Could some element come from telepathic species that they've assimilated and incorporated into the collective and passed on to the drones? It'd be neat, but ultimately it's just a brain fart on my part -- I don't think it would matter either way if the Borg fought the Empire. And I would think telepathy would be a biological distinctiveness worthy of the Borg.

Unlikely.
