Borg plz

Are there any Borg novels that don't read like crappy fanfiction with Captain Mary Sue T. Kirk?

Or is Vendetta the only other Borg novel that's ever been written?

Well, wait about two months, and I have this strange suspicion you won't be complaining anymore.

Borg Stories I Liked:
Engines of Destiny by Gene DeWeese
"The Beginning" in Strange New Worlds VI by Annie Reed
Homecoming by Christie Golden (although I don't count this as a "Borg Book")
The Farther Shore by Christie Golden (part two of Homecoming above, I don't consider this a true "Borg Book" either)

Borg Stories I thought were average:
TNG: Resistance by JM Dillard
"Forgotten Light" in Strange New Worlds VII by Frederick Kim
"The Worst of Both Worlds" in Mirror Universe: Glass Empires by Greg Cox (mirror universe Borg)

Borg Story I didn't like:
TNG: Before Dishonor by Peter David (this is actually a followup to Vendetta, so I'm told -- I haven't actually read Vendetta)

Thanks, I'll check them out.

Why don't you count those two as Borg books?

I read a bit of spoiler about Before Dishonor and Seven of Nine becoming "Seven of One" and wondered if I'd been redirected to fanfiction.net instead.

Re: Borg plz

William Shatner's "The Return" was pretty good, as far as the Borg were concerned. A lot of creepy Borg stuff in there (this was the era before Voyager - even before "First Contact").

This is a lie. There are plenty of other Borg novels, which have been listed elsewhere in the thread.

And I know you know that, Dayton3, because you started a thread to review one of them.

^ Then I retract the statement. The sarcasm wasn't obvious, and unlike your namesake, you don't have a reputation for it.

Re: Borg plz

Well before making this thread, the only two novels I'd known about with the Borg in them were Vendetta and that one where Kirk gets resurrected as some Super-Locutus Drone!Sue.

Re: Borg plz

'Fraid so.

I did enjoy the TNG/X-Men crossover book though, that's the only other Star Trek novel I've ever read.

Re: Borg plz

Gosh, are you saying you didn't like that book where Kirk came back from the dead and flew a ship to the Delta Quadrant and landed on the Borg homeworld and pulled a lever on it that blew it up?
