Transporter Room 3
Worf: There are no life sign readings.
O'Brien: I've laid in the coordinates which should set you down in the least damaged section of the Borg Ship.
Riker: Set phasers on stun. Be ready to increase power if we need it. Energize. (The away team materializes in the Borg Cube.) I wonder why they don’t react to us or why the Enterprise didn’t read any life signs especially with this many of them.
DATA: Perhaps because this ship was scanned for individual life signs. Apparently when they are in these slots, they become part of the whole and no longer read as separate life forms.
Picard: Go ahead, Number One.
PICARD: Go ahead, Number One.
Riker (Over the com): Our readings were incorrect. The Borg crew survived. (Back on the Cube.) They appear to be in some kind of stasis.
PICARD [OC]: Explain.
Riker: There are slots along the wall, kind of like compartments. There are 2 Borg in each one.
Riker: There are slots along the wall kind of like compartments. There are 2 Borg in each one.
DATA: Captain, I would theorise that the Borg are somehow interconnected through these slots and are working collectively.
Riker: We’re going to try to access their main computer.
(Data steps into a slot - or alcove)
DATA: Commander, I believe each slot is designed for a specific Borg. Here is where the connection is made.
Riker: Like a juggernaut, it could begin moving at any moment.
DATA: The technology required to achieve this biological and artificial interface is far beyond our capabilities. There are many advantages.
Riker: Speed being the most obvious. This ship literally just thinks what it wants and then it happens.
(A Borg walks past them, taking no notice)
Riker; They either don’t see us or don’t see us as a threat.
PICARD: Transporter Chief.
