Right now melee against the Borg matches canon EXACTLY. They don't adapt to it, they just overpower it.
Any melee weapon should cut through them.
Unless you want to program in that only Vulcans, Klingons, etc races which are stronger then humans can easily melee one to death. That'd actually only count for hand to hand.
Though, it wouldn't be universally applied. Like my one custom race is strong enough to throw somebody flying like the Augments do.
But yeah, somebody wielding a sword, Bat'leth, or Lirpa should just carve them up.
I mean, the borg might be able to adapt to holographic bullets, but still, HOW would you adapt to a bullet? Randomly and on the move grow entire new armor plates?
