The new mission assimilation SUCKS!!!!!!! When you beam down to the borg cube it says THEY SHOULDNT ATTACK YOU UNLESS YOU SHOOT THEM!!!! Then I opened a door, a group of borg beam down and attack us. Then ALL OTHER BORG START ATTACKING YOU AND THEN WHEN YOU DIE AND RESPAWN THE BORG STAY THERE MEANING YOU CANNOT GO PAST THAT AREA WITHOUT HAVING TO FIGHT DOZENS OF BORG!!!!!
I do not see how you did it without opening any doors, I checked every corridor and did not find the right device.
You're right, because the correct transporter is actually behind a door, one that will beam in Borg who will immediately aggro you. If you look at the map, it should almost be obvious where you need to go.
(Though I always thought that was a bit cheesy, to have a maze in a game where you have a map/mini-map...)
My suggestion: set your BOs on passive and either "park" them someplace safe while you explore, or just keep moving/sprinting. Remember, Borg don't run. :p
I have to say that Assimilated actually felt... "right". It — and the other missions on the story-arc — clearly showed proper use of STAR TREK assets, although placing Borg Link Nodes behind closed doors definitely means you're not there for a pleasant stroll in a Borg Cube.
I'm not sure yet if it's possible to go through Assimilation without dying, but it still feels right difficulty-wise as it's situated between Collateral Damage and Infected on the annoyance scale — not counting bugs, of course.
