As explained in my previous post. Some implants are internally replicated by the nanoprobes as part of the assimilation process. During Picard's nightmare in First Contact, he recalled an implant breaking through his face. When Voyager passed close enough to the Raven for Seven to be affected by its 'distress signal', the nanoprobes in her blood began internally replicating new implants. One was seen breaking through her hand/wrist, and when the Doctor reviewed the biodata from her transport, he commented about the amount of hardware which had 're-grown'. That is why the baby(s) in question had implants, not because they were 'born with them'.

In the biological sense to create a united community, not in a "WE ARE THE BORG. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE..." manner...

They needed the alcoves to recharge/regulate/maintain their cybernetic systems, it was hardly a 'recruitment drive'...

I'll have to review this episode before commenting further upon it...

Maybe so, but that does not mean that they need to be euthanized.

Her neural pathways had been restructured, so it is true that the processes of her thoughts were no longer the same as an unassimilated Human, but that is not the same as programming. Her demeanor was learned behavior, nothing more. Again, if the Collective actually possessed the power to take over her motor functions, they would have done so, but they did not, instead, the Borg Queen could only intimidate and coerce her, in situations where non-compliance would have been illogical and likely resulted in forcible re-assimilation into the Collective, something Seven had come to dread, not welcome.

In addition to the technological immune system, the collective 'energy' of the Collective allowed for rapid biological regeneration, like the Quickening (which is why I believe that nanoprobes would be able to adapt to the Quickening and assimilate an immortal Human)

It's definitely an interesting proposal, and one I cannot truly refute...

I wonder who would win in a fight between Kirk and Buck...
