Incursion is a Holoprogram
 
Am now sure of this

largely because BORG surrendered

thus I am counting this as a holographic simulation NOT a mission (thus anyone damaged in it can consider themself still a living person)

I NEARLY deleted a character just now then I realised

Borg SURRENDERING?

Borg Sabotaging at all

Borg at all

got to be a simulation

Why would the Borg surrendering cause you to almost delete a character?

I'm with you on this one.

I said in another thread that I felt it out-of-character for the Borg to fart around sabotaging when they are famous for assmiliation. Another poster pointed out that they could be sabotaging prior to, or to faciliate, assimilation, but not convinced - their method of sabotage IS assimilation. The don't beam aboard and break things - they assimilate them. Starbase 82 (from Infected Space) being an excellent in-game example.

The Borg's presence, and out of character actions, in Incursion ARE best explained away by it being a holoprogram.

My guy got assimilated

now the two characters who have suffered this fate in MISSIONS were deleted
this one gets to live because borg DON'T surrender

What mission are you talking about?

EDIT: Nevermind - you're talking about the Starbase Incursion repeatable.

I don't see Borg surrendering, you're right there.

The Borg sabotaging is reasonably common though, see the Enterprise episode and I'm sure some of Voyager.

Yeah its an ENT episode is called "Regeneration" there is a part where it looks like the Borg start assimilating the Enterprise but the Borg components later screw with the ships power and weapons systems when they start fighting the Borg vessel.

The Borg don't surrender though. The drones have no mind of their own and are completely expendable. Entire fleets of cubes are completely expendable. The only part of the collective that is not expendable is the Queen, and I don't think even she would surrender either.

The STO Borg obviously have evolved from the original Borg we saw in the shows, The game even sais that itself.

Surrendering Borg, though... a bit of a stretch.

lol here comes sollvax making up more ridiculous things

The borg should not be doing that should they really.:)
