The playable Borg would be depicted worse than the pansified Romulans.

That would be embarrassing.

Interesting.

Yeah, that's definitely residual sleepiness talking.

Yeah sorry it wont ever happen. Cubes have size issues (Already ships in game that are far too large...) And if you go by canon we really shouldnt even have this much borg tech installed on our ships. (Way too easy for the borg to tap into it during fights, 1 of the reasons voyager removed all its borg upgrades after the fight with the undine was over)

Also im sure someone in a CBS office is screaming no no no no no at his phone

It would make a good special event mission where your character is temporarily assimilated to gain up to date insight/intel regarding borg ship dispositions or something but just wouldn't be practical for this style of game, not sure it should be a multi player only mission, interesting concept though.

In the past I've seen several surveys regarding desired ships. Star Trek Online from it's beginning has always been a work in progress. So to add a ship whose dynamics haven't been created yet isn't out the question if the concept is sound and players register genuine interest...

<tl;dr>
people seem to forget the borg race is nothing more then hundreds of races forced to serve the queens voice over a subspace interplexing beacon, there is no free choice or free will, you do as expected from the queen or you get deactivated and taken apart for useful devices that other borg may need. now it wouldnt matter what type of vehicles you had open at this point, you are just a tool for the queens use without the choice.

however the hugh playable/borg renegade faction (axum/korok). if they came together then cubes are automatically off the cards, the biggest thing to take into account is its size, having 10-15 player cubes on sector space would block everything, doesnt matter how the boff layout goes or whatever, it would have to be no bigger then a sphere in size, which is usually powerful enough by itself, in player hands it could be devastating.

Because it's from the Mirror Universe. And because it's from there it's not necro.
