Gene Roddenberry's Universe Research
- The Borg is one of the many races in the Star Trek universe. However, they aren't their own separate species but rather an amalgamation of beings subjugated and assimilated into what is known as The Borg Collective.
- They are stripped of free will and connected to a hive mind. Within the ranks of The Borg the idea of 'the individual' non-existent, save for the Borg Queen and a select few chosen to serve as emissaries. All others are known as Drones. These Borg lack names, unique behaviors, and are essentially the cannon fodder that are used for menial labor and combat.
- The Borg seek constant 'perfection' by attempting to forcibly assimilate all sentient races the Collective comes in contact with. Through the vast amounts of knowledge and technology they have absorbed, they have become one of the most powerful and terrifying entities in the known universe.

- Work in progress
