# 1 Why no liberated Borg costume?
01-29-2010, 07:52 PM
The Borg bridge officer has a "borg" costume instead of the standard Starfleet uniform, so why no Borg costume for liberated Borg captains?

Agreed and Signed. Liberated borg should have the option to look like a full borg drone IMO. Would help us stand out rather then a small eye patch and a wire.

don't care much about standing out, but the full borg suite looks nicer than the fed uniforms. would love to have it as an option for my captain.

# 6 Borg Outfits ...
02-01-2010, 03:23 PM
For everyone here saying that they want a Borg uniform /outfit for their Liberated Borg character, I have just one question. Have none of you seen what the Ground Armor looks like on your Borg? While it might not be an official Bridge Officer/Captain Uniform, but it certainly is a uniform that your Liberated Borg can wear to look more 'Borg-ish'. There are some (combat armors) that even have that metallic sheen on them too and could be used to make your character look more 'future-ish' too (ala the queen Borg from First Contact).

Are these -alternative- uniforms "Bridge Officer" authorized? Not sure.

What I find odd though, is while everyone here seems to think it's cool to have been Liberated from the Collective (which it is); is that you think the Federation would allow or want you to keep looking like a Borg when you command a Star ship. I agree with other posters that say the whole point of being Liberated from the Collective is to regain your humanity. How can you do that when you look more Borg, than human (Jean-Luc Picard had much of the armor removed save for the stuff that couldn't be taken out without killing him. 7of9 still had a -lot- of Borg hardware -in- her, just not a lot of visible stuff save for the eye-plate and hand armor. Remember when her Cortical Node started to go?). The whole point of being "Liberated" is so that you can go back to your life before you became a mindless drone.

Now, this isn't to say that when I made my Liberated Borg character; I went all Human and removed his implants. Mine has a massive faceplate (which yes, I think would have been cooler if it looked like 7of9's or the Borg children from Voyager), that I thought would make my character easily recognizable as Borg while still wearing the Star Fleet uniform (Which I think looks pretty awesome!). However, I'm always reminded that my character is 'Borg' when I'm on the ground wearing my combat armor. So much so that I've considered not wearing the ground armor because I just don't like that look.

Just food for thought.

Yeah i actually dislike the amount of implants you can have, i would prefer a simple one like 7 of 9, we are meant to be liberated, to me that means we try to escape our borg past and getting rid of as many of the implants as possible.

Not to mention that i am appaled that you can only have implants in your head. No hand implant with assimilation tubes like seven's.
