Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future was a dystopian science fiction television series that aired in North America for only one season (1987-1988), and which had J. Michael Straczynski as its head writer.
The primary antagonist was "Lord Dread". From Wikipedia:
With the new opportunities offered by the human-machine combination, [Dr. Lyman] Taggart becomes obsessed with the precision and "perfection" of machines and convinces himself that merging human consciousness with mechanical bodies is the next step in human evolution. OverMind [a supercomputer] achieves self-awareness and shares Taggart's beliefs as they take over Bio-Mech armies throughout the world and attack humanity in a conflict known as the Metal Wars.
Here is Lord Dread, as he appeared in the series:
Now, here is a typical Borg from Star Trek:
The Borg first appeared in 1989 (in "Q Who"), two years after Lord Dread and his Bio-Mech army were introduced in Captain Power.
Given the similarity between Lord Dread and the Borg in both appearance and goals, is there any evidence that Lord Dread was an inspiration for the Borg in Star Trek?
