    So I was thinking about that ST:TOS episode and started wondering what would happen if a Borg Cube ran into one of those Doomsday Machines?

    Doomsday Machine specs:

    neutronium hull (indestructible)
    no crew, just an automated weapon
    a pure anti-proton beam weapon
    infinite fuel supply by "ingesting planets"
    serverely disrupts subspace where ever it goes.

    Borg Cube specs:

    most people know what they can do. ;)

    Since the Doomsday Machine can't be assimilated or destroyed by attacking it's hull and it can defend itself with a very powerfull beam weapon or just swallow up its enemy, will the Borg figure out how to stop it, like Kirk did?

    Which one would you bet on to win?

    Yea, the borg would win. They'd realize that detonating antimatter blasts into the thing would destroy it, and then they'd own it in the face.

    Besides, the borg could never lose, because they can just warp-10 their asses away.

    They'd probably just leave it alone if it wouldn't be useful to them.

    The answer is obvious, all we have to do is use a macbook to upload a virus to the mothership, thus disabling thier shields and saving all mankind.

    I got mine so long ago the cover has fallen off. I have 'Vendetta' written on the glue in marker. I have no idea where it is though, I don't see it on my shelf of ST:TNG books.

    BTW: Peter David rocks.

    V'ger or the Whale Probe
