What did/does the Borg say to the kazon whenever they cross paths?

    Usually they say... "We are the Borg. We will assimilate your biological and technological distinctiveness. Your culture will adapt to serve us. Resistance is futile."

    In the case of undesirable races like the kazon, the only true comment above is "We are the Borg" the rest of that mantra is inapplicable to the Kazon... Because the Borg are just not into them.

    If they're also not worth the cost of a torpedo, could this be the basis for a friendly relationship between the Borg and the Kazon?

    Or would the Borg still try to keep some distance "We are the Borg. Go away. Please. Just leave us alone. You're boring and you smell. Buggering off would be appreciated. Now. Why won't you just leave us alone?"

    Have you ever seen The Cable Guy?

    They'd probably just 'Swat' them like we'd swat a fly, and be done with them.

    So when the Borg say nothing... You don't think that the Kazon are going to trash talk them from the rear view mirror?

    Borg don't eat.

    It's direct electrochemical stimulus via regeneration.

    Borg babies really really don't eat.

    They're stuck in maturation chambers.

    The Kazon are completely useles.

    And still not worth a torpedo.

    Imagine Peppie La Pew and that balck cat with the white paint stripe along it's spine.

    Caretaker probably spent years swatting them.

    And like cockroaches they kept reclaiming Ocampa.

    HA!

    Pilot fish.

    The Borg have to have extremely valuable waste products that they can't be bothered dealing with. Extremely, extremely Valuable to a low tech species 6 or 7 hundred years behind the Borg like the Kazon are.

    Are the Borg ecologically friendly?

    This makes the Kazon a pretty sweet ride through Borg dominated space. I wonder how many non-Kazon would have to be on board for them to bother stopping.

    What always surprised me is the Borg going after single passenger crafts, like that guy in Hope and Fear.

    Well, he did kill Laura Palmer.

    Though more seriously, he was the last item left free in their collection.

    Remember the difficulty in getting that last baseball-card to finish your set?

    The Borg really need to get with the times and hit up ebay.

    And I guess the camouflage abilities of his ship may have caught their interest.

    And he knew 4000 languages.

    Though they only knew English, even when we saw them assimilating alien races.

    That's an interesting question?

    Is there a Borg Language or do all the drones know all the languages of all the assimilated species ipso facto all drones speak whatever language which they are most comfortable with...

    Which means that they no need of Universal translators.

    They would only have universal translators as a pleasantry to the nearly assimilated, if at all.

    Most nearly assimilated species would of course have their own universal translators but this still raises some curious points.

    And many of those races, like our own, could have over 100 languages, dialects, and subtongues.
