    It's a reference to the game show Match Game.

    Fannie Flagg was an actress who was on it.

    Talk about a blast from the past!

    At least 30% of the DQ

    No more than 28% surely?

    Seriously though is there really such a thing as Borg space? Do they actually claim a volume as their territory which borders someone else's?

    I tend to see them as more nomadic given their propulsion tech and apparent ubiquitous nature.

    Maybe the Borg moved. Species 8472 tore up their old home pretty good.

    Does "Galactic Cluster Three" refer to a cluster of galaxies, which would thus be outside our galaxy, or to a galactic cluster or open cluster, one of many thousands of star clusters within the disc of our galaxy?

    My interpretation was always that Borg space was "the" dividing line or main power in the DQ.

    My suspicion is they controlled at least a substantial percentage of the DQ-anywhere from say 15% to 40%.

    Not half of it but a lot.

    This is shown in both Voyager and the novels.

    I like the spiderweb idea. Not a contiguous portion of the quadrant but pockets connected by strands like cracks or veins

    Astronomically speaking, groups of galaxies are called "Galaxy Clusters," with designations of Poor/Rich. So, '7 would have to been referring to a star cluster in the Milky Way. As for the size of Borg space I would inclined to believe that given the age and advancement of the Borg, they would have to spread galaxy-wide but concentrated in the Delta quadrant.

    Furthermore, Borg conduits are point-to-point and only created under specific conditions. They cannot be randomly generated or created at will.

    I wonder how many species the Borg had to assimilate in order to develop those transwarp conduits.

    The way the Borg operate is pretty unusual to begin with; they just randomly send a single Cube to assimilate Earth, instead of using a fleet to conquer everything on their way. They may want to assimilate the Galaxy. but they sure aren't in any rush to do it.

    So no, I don't think they have a contiguous territory. Based on what we've seen with Earth, they just send cubes over to random and sometimes far-flung planets one at a time until they succeed in assimilating one.

    I think the Borg don't assimilate every race in the galaxy on purpose. The quickest way for them to achieve technological perfection would be to let some races go, advance for a while, then assimilate later when they reach a certain level of advancement. Sort of the reverse of why the Wraith on STARGATE ATLANTIS cull human planets... when they reach a certain level of advancement, they are the first targets.

    I think your right, Farscape One. There are many Worlds that have not been assimilated by the Borg, even in Borg space. The Borg seem to be somewhat selective. It's even stated in their mantra: "We will add your technological and biological distinctiveness to our own."

    My opinion is that the Borg seek biological perfection through technological means. We see very little of Borg activity attempting to assimilate technologically sentient species, such as Data or 'The Caretaker.'

    I'd think the Borg not sending but one ship is a consequence of both budgetary constraints and the need for the heroes to have an actual chance(plot constraints).

    In the destiny novels they launch a full scale invasion. Something like 7,000 cubes.

    Kinda like going to 24th century Earth then traveling back in time, as opposed to traveling back in time first Then traveling to Earth. Give the heroes a chance.

    It definitely explains why the Kazon were never assimilated. Seven said it herself... "Why add what will detract from perfection?"

    I think The Borg have their own area of space but also have other distant regions also under their control! In between those areas of space are different races maybe not so eager to draw attention to themselves in case a cube comes a calling!
