    Just an idle bit of nonsense here but hey boredom loves silliness.

    In the show Star Trek, what if the borg managed to assimilate the Q?
    The borg goal is perfection and with the knowledge and wisdom of the Q I wonder what sort of story that would make. Instantly the universe is borg? The borg realise that perfection is impossible and suddenly are free?

    Please share your nonsense hypothesis with me smile

    Marmite is the only thing I would have to go back to England for if I couldn't find it where I am. It is the ultimate in food.

    The Borg would become the Q.

    There may have been an episode involving the Borg and the Q. Not sure, only caught bits and pieces from time to time. Wasnt really a fan. Interesting thought though! LOL

      Hey Wayne, you would be correct. There was an episode of Star Trek with Q and the Borg. The "Q" or at least one of them, purposely setup the Enterprise to fail against the Borg, so as to give Picard a glimpse of the future.

      I am a fan of Star Trek, but I'm not a die-hard fan. I enjoyed the original and the next generation. But, that's as far as I go. I was never into the other spin-offs.

      With that said- Hey Kirsten, with the incorporation of the human being within Borg's mainstream, they would, at a later stage of evolving, figure out that the human section would have to go, except for the "mind/brain". The "Q" would never lose a battle against the Borg in the first place. It just wouldn't ever happen.

      Just a thought. wink big_smile

    Interesting thought process marmite and star trek. I like both, but sorry kirsten I can't think of anything witty to say.  Your mind is far wittier than mine.

    Set your phasers to full...and blast that obnoxious "Q" being first time he humanized. End of Problem...on both counts. I never could stand the "Q". The borg...look too stupid to be a real problem...other than for TV world. They remind me of the old "Mummy" movies where you would be screaming to the lady "Just Run!". If they would only run...end of problem...but the people always try to walk away from the Mummy...and inevitably...they trip and fall. Man...I hate that!

      However, the Borg were able to travel at speeds faster than any Federation ship in the Galaxy.
