The fact that you seem to think EPtE actually doing something = borg getting an uberbuff is adorable.
I also played other NPC missions, like Defense Contract, to get my daily allotment of Duterium surplus. You should see how much those Cardi NPCs got buffed damage wise. In less than 3 seconds, I lost over 30% of my hull while my shields were up. Also, for the first time in ages, I failed to defend all 3 posts (1 of them blew up without me even realizing it until after the mission was done). Granted, the difficulty level is set at Elite. However, their damage got boosted so much, the firs tank is reported to suffer heavy damage pretty much within 5 seconds of the NPC showing up, before I could even started to open fire.
So perhaps, it would be wiser for you to get your facts right and actually play and see the difference yourself than patronizing others with those remarks. There is speed and damage buff, not just the Borg.
