# 1 Armek of Borg

We all know (hopefully) that Locutus of Borg comes from the Latin verb loqui, which means to speak. Technically, Locutus means "spoke" but the writers meant for Locutus of Borg to mean The Speaker of Borg.

Having said that, is Armek a word in some other language that means something?

Interresting... It should be noted though that Locustus was meant to speak to humanity for the Borg. Therefore, a word meaning "to speak," taken from what is a root language in many earth cultures makes sense.

Is this Armek of Borg part of the invasion of Defera? If so, we could assume that the word is derivative of a similar language root in Deferi civilization.

Just my two unrefined dilithium units worth...

Ah... I haven't done any of those missions. My gameplay is extremely limited so I stick to solo play for the most part...

Thank you for clarifying...

To me, Armek was a rewording of "A Mech". After the guy is a tank. :p

You could still be onto something here, as Armek is an assimilated Klingon General. The name Armek may have some signifigance to the Klingons.

I think it's significance is more earth bound. I can't find its origin, but just to name a few Armeks that turned up in a search:

-DC comic character
-C-canon model of shield generator in the Star Wars universe (seen in SWG and several novels)
-A number of companies use the name, top result on Google is a chemical pump manufacturer
-A rap group in Massachusetts
