    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?

    Ahhhhhhhhh...you are kidding me right, attacking another country is no justifiable, unless it is a just cause for self defense.

      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.

    They really don't have to assimilate other species. They are aware how to breed amongst themselves and could assimilate technology without harming other races. They would just have to do things differently, adapt.

    According to Einstein, we are the Borg, far more interested in acquiring new technology than in expanding our humanity to keep existing technology in check. Every new discovery in science has people is a room somewhere asking "How do we make a weapon out of this first?" when we need to start asking, "How can this benefit humanity right now?" Adapt to survive.

      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"?

    They would have a right to life if they stayed in a specific zone and left everyone else alone.
    It is their taking over of other species, the ultimate invasion, that is their crime.

      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?
