Do you believe that the Borg, from Star Trek, have the right to life?


As you know, the Borg from Star Trek, are the cyborg creatures who go around saying: "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated." They have to assimilate other species---biologically and technologically---to survive. Is it possible to untangle who they are from what they do? If a Borg attacks a planet, in preparation to assimilate its sentient species, along with their technology; and the Federation helps the planet under Borg attack, are the Federation interfering with the rights of the Borg?

    Besarien. How's it going? To tell the truth, I did not know that the Borg do not absolutely have to assimilate other species; I thought they did. Tell me: Do you think the fact that they choose to do what they need not do makes them "evil"?

    Let's me ask you this: Aren't the Borg as much a process (assimilation), as they are a species of BEING? If so, how do you untangle the two?

    Hi peter565! How's it going? I guess I was asking us to utilize both fantasy and reality in tackling the question. I was asking this with the assumption that the Borg must assimilate other species to survive, to live.
