While hardcore Trekkers may not find a lot of new material in Star Trek Collective: Borg, newcomers experiencing 16 action-packed, fan-selected episodes of the Federation's greatest villains may have to prepare to be assimilated. All the episodes have been previously released on DVD, but there are new text commentaries on three of the episodes, and the per-disc price is significantly less expensive than the full-season Trek sets. It's a great entry point for novices, or for budget-minded fans.

The episodes are presented in Stardate order, which means starting with Enterprise, the latest series but also the earliest in chronological order. In "Regeneration," an exploration team finds a pair of apparently dead humanoid-mechanical hybrids that turn out to be members of the Borg, a nearly invincible race whose simple goal is to absorb--"assimilate"--every individual organism it encounters into its collective being. Because the Borg has the ability to adapt itself to resist any threat, resistance is futile. Shift ahead to The Next Generation and a visit by the quirky god Q turns out to have deadly implications when, in a pouty mood, he throws the Enterprise into their first encounter with the Borg. That's followed by the classic two-part cliffhanger (bridging seasons 3 and 4) "The Best of Both Worlds," in which Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) is assimilated into the Borg and a frustrated Commander Riker (Jonathan Frakes) has to make a fateful decision. "I, Borg" attempts to give the Borg a humanized aspect, and the two-parter "Descent" has some interesting developments for Data (Brent Spiner). Skip Deep Space Nine in favor of Voyager, the series in which Captain Janeway's (Kate Mulgrew) ship is stranded far from home in the Delta Quadrant. That happens to be home turf for the Borg, so they had a number of run-ins. The first two-parter (which bridged seasons 3 and 4) is "Scorpion," which introduces the Borg's nemesis, Species 8472. By the time of "Drone," the ship had its first Borg crew member, the sexy Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), but her loyalties are tempted by the Borg Queen (Susanna Thompson) in the double-length "Dark Frontier." In the "Unimatrix Zero" two-parter, which bridged seasons 6 and 7, Seven discovers an idyllic haven for members of the Collective that the Queen is determined to find and destroy. That eventually leads to an ultimate confrontation with the Queen (now played by Alice Krige, repeating her role from Star Trek: First Contact) in the series finale, "Endgame." --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars STAR TREK AT ITS BEST!!! Feb. 13 2006
Format:DVD
I have just read about this boxset on the official Star Trek website and I have to say, I am very excited by it. Unfortunately for me, I live in Ireland and I haven't heard news of a region 2 release of this boxset yet, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will be so.
So what do we have here...?
Put simply, this is Star Trek at its best!!! The Borg are the most terrifying sci-fi creation ever envisioned. Unlike most alien threats that want to kill you, eat you, wipe out all of humanity, the Borg want to assimulate you! This means all your sense of individuality being erased and your mind linked to the Borgs hive mind, its Collective. You are then their pawn and they won't hesitate in using you to wipe out all your species.
So what do you get on your four DVD's?
Disc 1:
Star Trek Enterprise - Regeneration
Humanities very first encounter (time-line wise) with the Borg. The scientists who find the Borg are like children playing with an atomic bomb!!! They have no idea how deadly a foe is in their mysts... And when the Borg activate... Get ready for fear the likes of which you have never experienced before...
Star Trek TNG - Q-Who
This was really the very first Borg episode that was shown to viewers and it sets the Borg up very nicely for future encounters.
Star Trek TNG - Best of Both Worlds Parts 1 and 2
Prepare to grip the edge of your seat in total terror as the Borg invade Federation Space. This is real epic stuff and will have you scared witless with fear. One scene in particular, the assimulation of Captain Picard, will blow your mind when you see it!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Turning-point in SF Television Aug. 8 2012
By delia ruhe TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this collection back in 2006, and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to take *Star Trek* seriously as a ground-breaking science fiction television event. It needs to be brought out in BluRay. From the orthodox posthuman perspective, it's politically incorrect, of course, as the Borg is represented as unreconstructed evil. Yet the Borg is a warning to all those technophiles who long for a technologically determined future.

Indeed, what the Borg teaches us is that jumping from the frying pan into the fire -- from biological determinism to technological determinism '-- is the ultimate hubris. We may be a terminal species in that Homo sapiens has reached the end of its biological evolution, but that also means we have choices '-- not many choices, but we do have some. We need to learn to walk that fine line between technophobia and technophilia.

Those who believe it's our destiny to discover a technological fix for our every problem will want to study this collection to see one possible direction that might lead us. I think this message was missed by all those adolescent males who turned off their brains to ogle Seven of Nine''s foam rubber bosom while watching *Voyager*. To those young men, ten years older and wiser than when *Voyager* was still in its first run, I recommend this collection -- and to everyone else who values science fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resist this? You must be kidding! Nov. 3 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Borg are the best of the worst...I became hooked from the very first encounter (Earth-time) with "Q-Who?" (aired on 05-08-1989). This is a rare and unearthly collection, a wonderful look into the world of the Universe's most "perfect beings." It's a good set. It's lovely to revisit the tell-tale glance of "Hugh" as he is beamed back to the collective, the clever reparte between Data and his brother Lorn, and the literally beautiful machinations of "7-of-9"...watch it...and prepare to be assimilated. Resistance is futile!

3.0 out of 5 stars satisfied but not astounded July 22 2006
By Dr Doom
Format:DVD
OK, I know I am going to get flack for this, but I found myself wanting for more. I feel like Paramount has again pulled a fast one on the collectors of Star Trek merchandise. I found that hey, these were episodes of what I came to get but things like a flashy menu and some sort of "behind the scenes" featurette would have made this a really good series to purchase. I can live with it but I think it really needed improvement before this was released.
