I recently laid paws on the Borg Fan Collective DVD set and well been watching that. While watching I wonder what the Borg might be like if they'd taken a different route. I'll write up a lil codex entry for this rendition of the Borg and then info on the individual here. Oh and the two outfits to the right are his more Professional Outfit and some Armor I whipped up.
The Borg are a humanoid race hailing from the Delta Quadrant. The specifics of their origin are not widely known and have become lost even to the Collective itself. Upon first glance one might notice irregular features under their skin. This is the visible indication of the Borg's extensive sub-dermal cybernetics. Beneath their skin is an intracate network of cybernetic implants and augmentation. Even their blood which carries swarms of nanites that repair, maintain, and construct new implants. Beyond this the Borg have also genetically augmented themselves as well taking in the best traits of the species they have encountered. They heal rapidly, are stronger, smarter and have generally better senses then most. All of these traits further augmented by their cybernetics. As far as reproduction the Borg are no longer body breeders and indeed possess no gender. All Borg produce a reproductive cell which is capable of bonding with any other and bonding cross species. These cells are introduced into a Growth chamber and an offspring is grown to an infant state, then birthed to be raised by it's parents. Borg Offspring typically take about as long as human ones to mature. Education wise each child incrementally learns and gains more knowledge from the Collective as the child matures. This rate of learning rapidly accelerates once the child reaches an age at which it can ask questions. Virtually any question the child can ask the Borg can answer though even they at times must answer "We don't know." Culturally the Borg are unique in that they possess no government as we would understand. While each Borg maintains it's own identity, sense of self, and personality it is also a part of the Borg Collective Consciousness. Members have described it as analogous to a many voices singing the same song while beneath that the same voice carry out many different conversations. This allows every Borg to participate in decision making directly. Only when every Borg is in agreement will the matter be settled and the corresponding action taken. Because of their cybernetic and genetically augmented nature this can be achieved in seconds in most cases. The Borg are quick to adapt to a given situation rapidly switching tactics depending on those they come into contact with. This adaptive nature has seen the Borg as mediators and some of the best scholars one could imagine. Borg can be found in all sorts of professions. From Astrophysicist, to artist, who legal bounty hunter. Beyond this the Borg take to heard a motto expressed by humanity. Their long term goal is to become "Optimized Life" To this end they search out the galaxy and explore making contact with new species from which they learn and procure genetic sampling. Often times this occurs in the form of trade. The Borg providing a service for the race in question.
