As it is, thanks to the trailer, we all know the Borg are coming...they may already be here when we start playing.
It would have been much cooler to have a surprise visit from the Borg a while after game release. Give the players a chance to explore the galaxy, buildup resources, become familiar with the game and its mechanics and then have a colony or two vanish off the face of a world, sparking the tell-tale sign of impending disaster.
Well, then again, it is kind of unnerving to know simply that they definitely are coming; we just don't know when or where. You could still be on a mission to transport an ambassador or something when all of a sudden a transwarp corridor opens up on top of you and a Cube starts tearing you apart.
