Selfish Thoughts

Star Trek: Alien Spotlight: Borg

Star Trek: Alien Spotlight: Borg

Genre: Licensed, Sci-fi

Since their introduction on TV’s Star Trek: the Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, the cyber-humanoid Borg have become the most feared alien forces in the universe. The Borg do not simply enslave or destroy, they assimilate, violently turning each victim into one of their own, controlled by the Collective’s hive-mind. Despite the fact that “resistance is futile,” the Borg are not inherently evil. Their goal is to eradicate imperfection among sentient life-forms, and the best way to achieve that goal—at least to their perfect way of thinking—is through assimilation.

In this spotlight story, Captain Picard faces a new Borg offensive—an energy wave from the future rewriting History in the Borg’s favor. How do you fight something that changes your own actions?  As an assimilation survivor, Picard knows the Borg can be beaten, but fears they’ll never be stopped—and their voices in his mind are a constant reminder!
