In canon, Borg also instantly incapacitate people with a single nanoprobe attack.

....I think we're better off with what we've got.

currently they can lead to character deletion (and nano probes only work if you do not have counter assimilation nanites )

already tried that....Chuck and Bruce said it wasnt worth their time....and Q is to lazy to head to DIZ XD


as for the +15 to weapons....the rep sets have that. doing Hard missions at DIZ gives borg ground weapons (at Mark 10 should be Mk 11 or Mk 12 especially since its LEVEL CAP...pretty stupid IMO)

I'm serious about this. Also, melee weapons ignore shields. This makes them super effective against heavy tactical and elite drones. If nothing else, they are dilithium sinks. They were purchasable before, they should be again.

We can see that you're serious, but making melee weapons specifically against the borg just raises the question: why.

You can craft amazing melee weapons, you can get good melee from episodes, you can craft them from doff missions.

There is already numerous ways to obtain melee weapons which are effective against everything. Why lose a DMG or CtrH or CrtD to replace it with a borg proc. It simply does not pay off. A rookie may use it a few times, but the minute he/she get his/her hands on a melee with good stats they'll see the borg melee weapon was a waste of cash.

Borg inspired kits would be interesting though.
