Awesome, a true Borg, from before they were even The Borg My namesake character was originally written as a Borg Specialist who studied under Magnus Hansen during his freshman year at the Academy (which would have been the year before the Raven departed for their investigations and eventual fate in the Delta Quadrant) so if you ever feel like writing about him examining Azera's pod, feel free to do so, here's a link to his bio in case you ever need to refer to it... I think the canon gives you a lot of freedom, as chances are, the true origins of the Borg will likely never be explored in canon, you you don't need to worry too much about new canon contradicting your writing
That is an amazingly detailed background! I haven't finished reading it all yet, but it's very well-written so far. And I may take you up on that offer! There are all kinds of story elements that are hard to write about from Azera's perspective, and having Marcus Kane, a Borg specialist who's been studying them since the Hansens' days, uncovering the truth and presenting it to Starfleet Command would be really fun to write.

Thanks - I'm glad you like it! She just hit commander in the middle of the Devidian arc, so a new log should be coming once those pesky time ghosts are taken care of, hopefully sometime this weekend.
