I'd love to witness Kirk trying to hit on the Borg Queen and turn her away from her "evil" ways then, during the throes of their passion, to have her assimilate him.
With "assimilation tube" as a metaphor, wouldn't it be Kirk that assimilates the Borg Queen?


There are so many things I could say to that, but could be a little overwhelming for those of a nervous disposition

Re: Kirk vs. the Borg

I'd actually like to see this happen in the next JJ movie. With today's special effects and make up budgets. A creepy reboot of the Borg. Since Kirk's the only captain not to face them in canon, it's about time he got his chance.

That's up for debate. Some believe the scene in Generations where Kirk and company are rescuing Guinan and the other Elurians, was directly after the Borg's assimilation of Eluria. If that's true, Kirk would have indirectly dealt with the Borg right before he "died".

But then why did Q have to port the Enterprise D all over the galaxy to meet the Borg for the first time? They couldn't have been that far.
Guinan appearing in Generations like that never made much sense to me but I'm happy to ignore that. I still like Generations because of all the TNG movies it captured the mood of the series the best.

Maybe the Borg's focus was elsewhere during Generations and Q's gift was a head start of things to come. I wish I could find that thread, they bring up some interesting points (even though I was on the side of the Borg came much later).

Kirk successfully talked Landru, the Nomad probe, and the M5 computer into committing suicide, I think applying his verbal Kirk-Jitsu skills to The Borg would achieve the same result.

Re: Kirk vs. the Borg

Well, he couldn't talk them down. he'd start with a speech and get injected himself--maybe by the Borg Queen, who would laugh at him as being easy. Kirk would meet his match from the lady from GHOST STORY.

Re: Kirk vs. the Borg

The more I think about it, Kirk is unbeatable and I think he knows it. Mid-injection, Spock would mind-fu-meld her, making her remove the nanos from Kirk, and make all the Borg return home (thanks to a concoction Bones whipped up multiplying his Vulcan abilities of course).

Kirk has a cheat code activated or something.

Re: Kirk vs. the Borg

The Borg Queen is utterly seduced by Kirk but mid-assimilation she realizes everything she wanted in him is disappearing and she voluntarily reverses the process.

Re: Kirk vs. the Borg

I'm up for a Kirk vs. the Borg flick. Sounds like more fun than beating the Klingon dead horse for the 1,111,111th time.

Classic Kirk vs Borg: Kirk convinces them the only way to truly assimilate us is to become individuals.

NuKirk vs Borg: Kirk beams in and shoots everyone. He has a new unadaptable kind of phaser or something.

Re: Kirk vs. the Borg

But can't we just assimilate NuKirk just a leeeetle bit first so he evolves into the kind of man who makes passionate speeches about being an individual?

Kirk is the Chuck Norris of the Star Trek universe. The Borg couldn't assimilate him. If anything, Kirk will assimilate the Borg.

With with Superwarp and Supertransporters, Superphasers would be next to defeat an enemy like the Borg--probably something like the I-Mod from Elite Force, only with ridiculous move parts.
