We Are The Borg. You Will Be Assimilated.

I am a super huge Star Trek fan. I watch old episodes of Star Trek Voyager almost every night before I go to sleep. This article is a tribute to everyone’s favorite cybernetic life form: The Borg.

My favorite Borg quote is, “”We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.”

For those that are not familiar with the Borg, they are part organic and part artificial beings. They assimilate almost everyone they come in contact with. In other words, they absorb them into the Borg which is a mass consciousness and they become efficient drones who do not even remember their old life. For all you true Borg fans, I know this explanation is oversimplified, but it is so true that life as one knows it is over once assimilated.

As part of the borg, you become a small part of a whole (the collective), and lose all sense of individuality. Every once in a while, someone is “rescued” from the Borg and they relearn how to be an individual. This once happened with a group of children left behind by the Borg, and it also happened with my favorite Star Trek character: 7 of 9 (a Borg designation or name)

This is the very beautiful, very intelligent, and very efficient 7 of 9 -

According to http://www.startrek-voyager.info/j.html, “Their main goal is to find perfection by assimilating more species and technology but they only assimilate what they think is relevant biological or technological traits. The Borg are un-emotional but efficient and can only grow in numbers by assimilation.”

You can learn all about the Borg by clicking here and reading this informative article on StarTrek.com.

Here are two great videos so you can get your Borg fix for the day –
