Star Trek Fan Collective: Borg (Some Spoilage May Occur)

There's a series of these out there - this one is a collection of the most "important" Borg episodes of the various Star Trek series. I thought I'd take a look at them and report on what I find.

I always liked the Borg as enemies, similar as they are to those other favorites of mine, the Cybermen. I thought they got a bit overused, particularly during the Voyager years, where I felt they made the transition from "An enemy so deadly that one of their ships was a threat to all of the Federation" to "A bunch of feebs who were regularly being outwitted in the heart of their own territory by Mrs. Columbo".

Anyway, I'll go through the collection story by story, and see what I can see.

Still laughing at this, because truth is the funniest thing of all.
In the Voyager story "Unity" the ship encounters a planet of people who were formerly Borg-linked, some of who want to reestablish a group consciousness. I thought the outcome was awful: it's really a story in which the bad guys win.
Yeah, I wasn't wild about that particular story - maybe no one else was, either, and that's why it wasn't included in the collection.
Maybe it was Ensign Mopee'ed.
