Threats linger around every corner...
They assimilate your technology and use it against you - and they don't even need to because they're already more advanced than you. They have cloaking technology, but they don't need it. When they come for you, you will see them coming. All the while, they don’t stop.
One Borg learns something, they all learn it. When they take you, they ALL know your secrets. Each drone has their own shielding. You get ONE SHOT to take out a drone before the others adapt, before the fallen drone hits the floor. Each drone can be equipped with weaponry, but they don't need to. They can take you without engaging you in infantry combat. They can lose a massive percentage of their drone population in a planetary assimilation and actually end up with MORE drones than they started out with by using YOUR people to run their ships. Once again, they don't stop.
They are relentless. When one goes after you, they ALL go after you. And they just want YOU. And when the Borg Cube comes to get you, ALL the Borg on the Cube wants to get YOU. Then they will take YOU. And use YOU to take someone else. They don't care about turning you against your own people. Because they assimilate children. And as always, they don't stop.
They broke the powerful Federation fleet in just one battle. It took two years to rebuild it. They broke Earth's defences and entered orbit of the planet. Then they did it again just six years later. They attacked both Earth and Romulan outposts along the Neutral Zone border, because they CAN fight wars on two fronts at once. They forced enemies to become allies, then they killed them. Star system Wolf 359 is now unnavigable because of the Federation debris. But time after time, they just don’t stop.
They don't care about politics, religion or ideals. They just want you. They don't even have diplomats. They don't open a dialogue. They just want you. They are an enemy to 100 percent of the universe. They don't need allies. They just want you. They don't ask. They assimilate. They don't enquire. They assimilate. They don't learn. They assimilate. They just want you. And they don't stop.
Their technology is as advanced as the most advanced enemy they ever fought. They can lose 80 percent of their vessel and still maintain 100 percent of ship operations. When they find you, they tell you not to resist. They are so powerful they expect you not to resist. They don't UNDERSTAND it when you resist. Then they kill you. They add your biological and technological distinctiveness to their own. And do you know what?
They do it time and again – they don't stop.
Over fifteen years since the last known Borg invasion of the Alpha quadrant, the Federation’s most deadly enemy is back with a vengeance and anger never seen before. Gone are the days of single ship assimilation forces. The species of the Alpha quadrant have resisted for too long and now, a decade after the crew of the USS Voyager were thought to have destroyed the Borg in their own domain thanks to a neurolytic pathogen from the future, the Borg are back. And like always, they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal – only this time, their goal is different – they will settle for nothing but the total assimilation of the entire Alpha quadrant.
For the crew of the Nogura, many light-years from the safety of Federation reinforcements and located in an isolated, desolate region of space called ‘The Wastelands’, the first sign of trouble comes in the form of a flotilla of Alrakis Pact vessels that have gone missing. Why? None of the crew knows. They will soon become embroiled in a fierce battle for survival which will result in them coming face to face with their most feared enemy…

Major Keil walked into the observation lounge on the Nogura, noticing she was one of the first ones there.
That was probably because she'd bypassed the stop at sickbay like it had been "strongly advised" she do, but there hadn't been time. As soon as all her birds and pilots…
