As far as i know optics of the Assimilated set apply not unly to Federation and Klingon ships, but to ships belonging to different factions as well (you can see it by using a Ferengi holo emitter while having the Assimilated set equipped).

In my opinion NPC Borg ships encountered in game could consist not only of native Borg ships but also from assimilated ships belonging to other species. This would increase the variety of Borg (and the diversity of Borg related encounters) with probably not much effort, since ship models with corresponding optical modifications already exist.

What do you think about this?

Doesn't sound like a bad idea at all.

I support the OP's suggestion and what Revo added.

I like the idea. Would be interesting to fight against an assimilated Keldon which calls in its Photonic Fleet or an assimilated Breen Crusier with SNB, or... well there are many good encounters possible. But in the end it has to fit in the story.

The borg feel you encounter thousands of times repeatedly. Identical ship types applying identical tactics.

Got a few little ideas:

- Borg "Diamond" as a Science Vessel/Cruiser of some sort. (Worked in Armada and SFC3, could certainly work here)

- Borg "Pyramid", akin to what was featured in SFC3, as an alternative to Probes.

- Borg "Interceptor" Probe as an Escort.

By all means it should not be a common thing.
Maybe in a future Borg mission in Gamma Orionis.


Really should add assimilated ships to the Foundry at least.
Contained so it wont hurt the overall conformity of the Borg while letting us see some variation if we choose to.
