Haha right on. I'm from Garuda. But yeah it could totally be Al'taieu (Sea) as well. Ro'Maeve, Ru'Aun, and Al'taieu were all built by the Zilart after all. Same with the crags, Delkfutt's Tower, etc. The architecture is unmistakable. I totally love it though.

Ohoho that's it isn't it? The Dyson Sphere was built by the Zilart. By Altana, it all makes sense now.

Ehm... that would be the most uninspired Origin story for the Borg I can imagine.
There are zero connections. Transwarp is a technology like every other. Only a few species are advanced enough to field it.
Was the Federation created by the Borg because they have Transwarp, too? Nonsense.

Neural ciruitry? There isn't only one species in existence with that tech. So again, no argument to be found here.

And no assimilated Voth?

There are no hints at all.

Try clearing cookies, just PerfectWorld cookies and should be now fixed.

Apparently this been reported over a year that sites ceased to function correctly after a while, clearing returns normal functionality.

And this is why I will never, ever install ARC, they cannot even get a website to work right.

None of that species exist anymore, they all were forcefully assimilated into the first collective.
What novel did that come from? I would love to read about the Borg's origins.

There's a good half dozen or so different Borg origin stories according to the novels, comics, and a game or two. Most of them are pretty silly, in my opinion, especially the recent Destiny series with their deus ex machina of an ending.

That particular origin story comes from the manga books, however. It's from the story "Side Effects" in the Shinsei Shinsei volume. Each story in the handful of manga volumes turned out were usually done by a different author and artist, some of Star Trek renown, and are worth looking into for the unique independent tales.


As far as Borg origin stories go, I'll go with the more mysterious insinuation that the Borg are loosely related to V'ger through a common "ancestry," some ancient machine race out there in the great, black deep (also insinuated in the relatively recent Nero backstory comics). This does not count the Shatnerverse origin story of V'ger being rebuilt BY the Borg or the Legacy game's origin story of the Borg being created as probes by V'ger.
