Was the family of seven of nine the first humans to be assimilated in the 2350s? Was it because of them that the Borg first learnt about humanity?


Chronologically, no. The first humans assimilated by Borg were crew members of Picard's Enterprise-E on April 5, 2063 ("Star Trek: First Contact"); after the Borg jumped back in time to prevent First Contact between Vulcans and Humans as a result of Cochrane's first Warp flight, and Enterprise followed the Borg Sphere to prevent that.

Next incident was from the same time discrepancy - in 2153, the remains of Borg Sphere that Enterprise destroyed were found and thawed out Borg assimilated the research team

The next one was 2356 assimilation of the Raven, with Hansen family aboard.

    Time travel. It gives me a headache... :P – a CVn Dec 26 '12 at 19:46
  • I agree. A headache indeed. Logically without this time travel. It seems that the Hansens were the first human victims. – The Byzantine Dec 26 '12 at 22:34
  • Except technically the out-o- canon writings indicate the first Borg were HUMANS. This implies non-canonically, of course, Star Trek: Destiny, Book 3 Lost Souls, where one Caeliar merged with two Humans to form the first Borg, and the Kindir were the first species assimilated after that. Curse you writers! – Thaddeus Howze Dec 27 '12 at 19:50
