We know that Seven of Nine had dreams, but she wasn't fully Borg. I'm curious whether anything in the canon answers the question of whether Borgs dream while regenerating.

    we know there were a whole group of borg drones that would enter some "dreamworld" were they would be individuals again. i cant remeber if that was the result of something voyager did or if voyager used that against the borg.

    @Himarm - You're referring to Unimatrix Zero; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unimatrix_Zero. It was created by a group of drones who happened to be resistant to Borg mind control when dreaming.

    Suggestion for a new question title: Do Borg dream of assimilated sheep?

1 Answer 1


It depends on what you mean by dream, and who you want to include as Borg.

From the TV shows, it would seem that your regular Borg drone would not dream in the sense of what you or I would dream - they are always part of the collective, and even when regenerating they are sensitive to the voices of the other Borg speaking in unison.

We do see some irregular cases, though - Borg that become separated from the collective, like the Unimatrix Zero Borgs, or Seven of Nine. And we certainly see Seven dreaming in at least a couple of episodes.

  • I was referring to Borg Drones that are still fully incorporated into the Collective. Seven wasn't fully Borg, and I don't think the Unimatrix Zero Borgs were, either.

    @T-1000 - the unimatrix zero Borgs were fully incorporated (originally), until the humans interfered with a virus that separated them from the collective. The Borg queen was quite explicit as far as losing voices in that episode. Commented Oct 20, 2014 at 22:53
