Which doesn't match up with the "Swarm" Guinan mentioned. Guinan said "Swarm", not "single ship". Nothing in Q Who? implied that one Cube was their total force, otherwise the end of BOBW would have them mentioning that they've destroyed the Borg's totality and not just one ship. If the only core trait an enemy has is that they've been stupidly overpowered, they're still a lamely thought out enemy. You said you'd be dissatisfied if you either had them run into a world they ruled or a world they raped. So both choices dissatisfy you. History vindicates me saying what they'd expect. Which doesn't fit how they were portrayed in TNG as an unstoppable force with an insatiable hunger to conquer and assimilate everything around them. How can they be taken seriously if they couldn't even conquer their homeland? You just can't win.
