could the origin of the borg be tied in somehow (creatively) with the original series episode "The Lights of Zetar"? Were they 100% certain they destroyed them in the compression chamber or just drove them out into another time/space dimension? It IS Star Trek after all with all the time warp travels and such. (just a seed of thought)

    Borg origins have not been explained in canon. Have you tried the post-Nemesis books though? There is a great trilogy 'Star Trek: Destiny' that you may find interesting. – NKCampbell Jan 18 '18 at 18:50
  • I recall the lights being driven out by pressure, but I don't remember anything about them being thought 'destroyed.' Memory Alpha's article indicates: "The aliens are successfully driven out of her body. ... The Zetarians did not further attack the Enterprise." – K-H-W Jan 18 '18 at 19:38

    “just a seed of thought” — unfortunately, the button says “Ask question”, not “Plant seed of thought”. – Paul D. Waite Jan 18 '18 at 20:21
