They might surrender if their link to the collective was severed by the damage your team had inflicted I suppose so although it's a stretch it's not implausible really.

As for the sabotage it could simply be them adapting their tactics. It was part of the Borg Queen's plan in Voyager to get Seven to develop a way of infecting humanity with nanites that would adapt the species over generations. Not really that far stretch of the imagination to believe they are conducting some raid of this sort to infect local supplies on a smaller scale.

Why would you do that? Your character could found a club with Picard, Seven of Nine, Icheb, Janeway, Tuvok, Torres and Hugh. You could even print t-shirts. "The Borg assimilated me and all I got was this lousy t-shirt."

sollvax has the belief that Borg are zombies, you can't ever be unassimilated and that he has "counter assimilation nanites" in his head so if he does get infected by a borg he dies...

that's why he deletes characters that get assimilated

he explained this through his usual barely coherent crazy ramblings in another thread

Allow me to be very clear on this point, and mind you this is only my personal observation.

You are certainly within your rights to roleplay this game to the point that you would consider a character "lost" if they ever once got assimilated. It seems extreme to me, but I won't criticize you for that.

However, the choice to delete them is yours and yours alone. No other player, and not Cryptic, forces you to do that or is to blame for that decision.

I get the feeling that you are unhappy that you can't force the game and other players to fit into your worldview. If I'm right about that, I'm sorry you feel that way.

Play the way you want, but please don't expect the rest of us to conform or agree. When all is said and done, this is only a game and we'd like to just enjoy the entertainment.

For the record, I agree... having the Borg show up in this particular scenario isn't very consistent. With all of the other races in the game who might try to sabotage a starbase and who might surrender, I don't see why the Borg need to be included in this.

If pretending that it's a holoprogram simulation helps you enjoy it, then I'm glad you found a way to enjoy it.

It does take place on Holodeck, after all.

Although, what does that make it if you play it on Tribble...

I've read a lot of Sollvax's posts now and I have to ask...

Do we know for a fact that Sollvax isn't actually a cleverly renamed SuperLink?

The posts are almost identical - difficult to read/understand and always with a my-way-or-the-highway vibe to them.

Seriously, anyone ever seen them together? We may be looking at a Clark Kent/Superman scenario here.

I don't understand the complaint.

Obviously the Borg are looking for relics of their third dynasty we stole from worlds that they decided to retreat from since the primitive cultures there overthrew their overseer.

Perfectly consistent Borg behaviour.

Anyone "stalking" me with a liberated borg risks having his/her implants removed and Prune juice applied to the wounds (it has powerful curative properties if you are klingon according to Michael Dorn in an interview some years ago)

I have noticed a couple of other odd behaviours in this simulation as well
Including "flying" Gorn
and a Sab spawned approximately 2/3rds of the way into a crate

Wow you become assimilated in Incursion, might have to go try it out. Didn't it help Picard fight the Borg in First Contact, when he could hear them and target the correct system to destroy the cube?
