It'd be worth sticking around to watch Neelix get decapitated while the doctor begs Janeway through comms not to destroy his holoemitter.

Sure they did. They scanned Ethan Phillips, detected he was a hologram, then threw him across the room. Clearly holograms provoke violent reactions from the Borg.
Or maybe Ethan Phillips provokes violent reactions from the Borg

It was probably just because of his mustache.

Is that from the novelization? In the movie, the two Drones merely disrupt the hologram with the laser-pointer beams, but the scene ends there and cuts to Picard confronting the holo-gangsters.

37 seconds in, Ethan Phillips gets thrown across the room. True, we don't actually see the Borg do it, but he was last seen with the two drones, so they are therefore the likeliest suspects.

In 'Dark Frontier' we can see a Borg hologram of a human male during a conversation between Seven and the Borg Queen.
Wasn't that just an 'informational graphic'?

The programming used is, in essence, basic.
Holograms where programmed in BASIC?

Yeah, it's basically a photo from an encyclopedia upgraded to the 24th century. It doesn't move or interact with anyone. And it's wearing swimming trunks for modesty.

What changed between Best of Both Worlds and First Contact in regards to Data being "useless" to being important!

I think their opinion is that holograms technological distinctiveness will be added to their own. Resistance is futile.

Didn't they need Data to unlock the ships computer or something? My guess is the Queen was just playing him.
