Well among other things that confuse me, we should by all rights be able to have multi- factions.... So why only Klingon and Fed? Why can't we start out as.... Fed. Klingon, Romulan, Borg, or some of those other Factions out there?

There is room for them on the map.

Species 8472 was the Borg designation for the Undine.

The Borg would make for a really lousy faction.

If you truly believe in the ethos and philosophy of the Borg, you would essentially not be able to make any independent combat decisions / customisation / choices in general. There would also be no story as all you're doing is either destroy or assimilate. How very droll.

Also, a player as the supreme leader of a faction? You're kidding, right? I guess you're a glutton for punishment as someone who wants to get killed time and time again in "Into the Hive".

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots

of the six major Factions, Some of which already exist (the Factions beinng Federation, Klingon Empire, Romulan Star Empire, Cardassian Union, The Dominion, and The Borg Collective), I see the borg as least likely if not out and out impossible to be added to the game.

The Borg are not a faction in the traditional sense, They are meant to be a force of Nature. There is no rank/command structure. You are either THE Queen, or a drone. I just don't see it possible to be a member of the Borg Collective, and be it accurate to the IP. It would just be taking things way to far to fit in the structure of the game, that I feel most people will not like it, as you wouldn't really be a borg.

Keep crowing, Your Majesty...

I have one cannon loaded with tribbles, and one loaded with snowballs. AND I'm not afraid to use them.
I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

Well..... From Wiki.... I got this.


Borg Queen


Prior to the movie Star Trek: First Contact, the Borg exhibit no hierarchical command structure, instead using a structure similar in principle to the internet with no control center and distributed processing. First Contact introduced the Borg Queen (she is not named as such in the film but is referred to as the Borg Queen during the credits). The Queen is played by Alice Krige, who reprised the role in the Star Trek: Voyager series (except for the two-part episodes "Dark Frontier" and "Unimatrix Zero", in which Susanna Thompson was in the role). The Borg Queen is the focal point within the Borg collective consciousness and a unique drone within the collective, who originates from Species 125, that brings "order to chaos", referring to herself as "we" and "I" interchangeably. In First Contact the Queen's dialogue suggests she is an expression of the Borg Collective's overall intelligence; not a controller but the avatar of the entire Collective as an individual. The introduction of the Borg Queen radically changed the canon understanding of the Borg function; some fans consider the Borg queen "nothing more than an illogical plot device" designed to make for "good theater."[9]
Alice Krige as the Borg Queen in First Contact

In First Contact, the Borg Queen is seen as apparently present during Picard's former assimilation at the start as flashbacks in Picard's mind, and was believed destroyed along with that Borg cube years earlier. Here, she instead directs her attentions to Data. After he is captured by her drones, she tries to tempt him to join her by playing on his desire to be more human. She claims that she desires a semi-independent non-Borg being as an intellectual companion. This Queen is partially destroyed when her organic components are liquefied as a result of Data rupturing one of the Enterprise's warp core plasma coolant conduits. Picard finishes her off by breaking her spinal column with his own hands. The Queen is also destroyed in the Voyager episode "Endgame".

In the Star Trek: The Experience attraction The Borg Invasion 4-D, the Borg Queen re-appears after Voyager returns to the Alpha Quadrant, but as Admiral Janeway attempts to kill her, she activates a transporter, allowing herself to survive.

In the Star Trek: Voyager relaunch novels, the Borg Queen is not a single, irreplaceable entity, but the product of a program called "The Royal Protocol" that shares its name with a Starfleet document outlining requirements when dealing with foreign royalty. This program is used to create a Borg Queen from any female Borg, commanding the technology within her to alter and adapt to the Protocol's specifications. In the relaunch novels, one of the leaders of Starfleet Intelligence gets her hands on The Royal Protocol and, with the use of an Emergency Medical Hologram, turns herself into a new kind of Borg Queen who cares about and loves her drones.

Alternatively, in the game Star Trek: Legacy, bonus content unlockable throughout the course of the game offers further information on the role of the queen. It is suggested that the females of a particular species have a natural ability to filter and control the immense 'traffic' of thought present in the collective consciousness of the Borg. These females, in a sense, serve as regulators or signal boosters even assisting in maintaining the complete consciousness over the thousands of lightyears of Borg space. This also presents the possibility of multiple queens, which would be a suitable explanation for why, on more than one occasion, a Starfleet officer has 'killed the queen.' In the illustration accompanying the explanation, all the females distinctly resemble the queen portrayed on screen.

In the Mirror Universe story "The Worst of Both Worlds" by Greg Cox, the Borg are led by a King (and travel in ships shaped like diamonds, not cubes).
