# 1 Borg Faction
11-14-2012, 11:15 PM
Ok so i keed seeing ppl in chat say they wany borg ships. So i started thinking....
We started out with Fed (for the Fed fadtion) and Klink (for the Klink faction) ships. Then we got Ferengi, Cardassian and Dominion ships, but NO Romulan ships. So I am thinking that we will never get a Ferengi, Cardassion or Dominion faction because it would not be right to have the enemy faction in your ship. So that is why we have yet to get a Romulan lockbox. Because we are destined to get the long waited and desired Romulan faction. Soooo back to my opening topic. To those who want the Borg ship. I have a wonderous idea. What if (since the Lifetime subs are Borg) the Borg faction was a Lifer perk?? I mean how could it not be. If they made the Borg faction for everyone, the lifers who paid 300 bucks, will be punched in the face. So what a perfect idea??? By the way, this all came from a NON-lifer

No.

The Borg have no individuality or free will. Playing as an actual Borg would be that you log in and watch the character do things as directed by the Collective with no control in what your character does. I'd rather not.

Not this dead horse again. I second the "No." as another lifer. Motion to veto this suggestion is carried.

Does this mean that if we get a Borg faction Cryptic would have to ban anyone in that faction for botting?

The queen gives the orders. She does not controld them that deep to the point of you just watching the screen.

I can't wait to experience the Borg Social Zone
Those of us who see things for what they are need to get it through our heads that no matter how much we rant about it, THEY WON'T CHANGE!. We can either live with it, or we can go find some other game to play until it too embraces the same tactics. The reality is, STO is what it is, and it will not be anything else, no matter how much some of us may want it to be...

The Borg are not individuals. So you have to stand there and watch the screen until the rest of your group logs in. You can't be 1 of 1. And you don't get to pick your number. So you will be 142 of 178. And if only 177 of you are logged in, you have to wait until 63 of 178 logs in but he's too busy offline. So you can't play. THAT IS THE BORG FACTION FOR YOU.
