Well then, I guess this mod, like most of the other Star Trek mods and games, will fall short of whatever expectations and/or hopes people who have watched Star Trek their entire lives hope for it. Gentlemen, I am ashamed to call this a Star Trek mod, when in all actuality it is only the future of the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie, that is to say, an action flick in the clothing of one of the greatest scifi genres in history. I shall therefore call it crap and anyone who asks me about it, shall be told the same.
...wow. I have to say that your comment is extremely hurtful and ignorant. You obviously have no idea what our limitations are in regards to fitting Star Trek into the Sins engine, not to mention the thousands of man hours we've put into the work so far. This statement alone makes your character evident, but I would assume you don't treat people like this face-to face. That would surely lead to a lonely and bitter lifestyle... I suppose all I can ask is that you not use the internet as some kind of mask and treat us with the same respect you treat people in your daily life.
In regards to your argument, I feel like you have a point somewhat, but you've stopped a few yards short of the finish line. It's true that the Federation funneled a massive amount of time and resources into developing technology that could defend them against the borg; however, the nature of the collective is to adapt and assimilate. Sure, transphasic torpedoes may have taken out cubes in a single volley during the Voyager finale, and that may have only continued for another couple dozen or even hundreds of cubes. Based on everything we've been given, we know that the borg are willing to sacrifice ships and drones in order to even have the opportunity to experience unfamiliar advanced technology. Those experiences then lead to analyses and finally to adaptation to assimilation. (Not to mention those torpedoes were from 25 years into the future.)
On the flip side of the coin, you say the Federation is proven in Star Trek lore to be able to match the collective, and you state it as an absolute. I'm confused about where this information came from. Surely you aren't referring to "Best of Both Worlds". Federation technology didn't destroy that cube; through Locutus, Data simply instituted a basic regeneration cycle which lead to a systems-wide overload. Not to mention the massacre of Wolf 359. That's like dredging up memories of the Alamo or Little Big Horn.
You couldn't possibly have been referring to "Descent", either. That borg ship overpowered the Enterprise easily, which was only able to survive by use of its new metaphasic shielding while hiding inside a star's corona. Again, Federation technology didn't destroy the vessel, but did help to protect the Enterprise by allowing it to evade a direct conflict. Due to the shear ingenuity of the crew, technology was adapted in a pinch. I say that's progress, but far from any that could remotely be considered battle-worthy.
First Contact is the first time that we see a borg cube destroyed by Federation weapons, but note that they were all targeted on coordinates Picard knew about due to his connection to the collective. Prior to the Enterprise's arrival, the cube had already overcome one unseen fleet (read: destroyed or plowed through with survivors continuing on to Earth as well) and then made it's way to sector 001 where a second fleet had inflicted only minimal damage. Phaser's and photons clearly weren't doing the trick. I'd say the quantum torpedoes, which were known at the time to only exist on board the Defiant and Enterprise, did the trick (especially after the sphere was taken out by a measly four torpedoes).
Then we jump over to the Delta Quadrant and see how Voyager is dealing with the borg. Did they ever destroy a single cube? They destroyed a probe by beaming a torpedo casing on board, which means they still didn't overcome the ship in a fire fight. Though the borg were de-mystified (thus the waning fear felt by the audience), Voyager was still easily out-classed as well, even after their guest 29th century drone enhanced their defensive systems. Jump to the finale, now. The sphere containing Voyager emerges from the transwarp conduit and is bombarded by weapons from some of the most advanced ships in the fleet (Prometheus and Defiant classes). No damage was done to the sphere. No damage!
So, in conclusion, only one cube has ever been destroyed by Starfleet weapons in direct confrontation. One!!! Plus a tiny scout sphere that had no shields after traveling through a temporal wake. The collective has THOUSANDS of cubes and TRILLIONS of drones at it's disposal. How can anyone possibly even imagine that the borg could be defeated by the Federation if they focused a significant amount of resources on conquering the human race?
Now, considering assimilation. Voyage had the perfect defense againt the borg in the finale. The ablative hull armor was practically impenetrable...until they assimilated the knowledge. Bam! Defense advantage gone. That's all it takes for the borg to overcome a technological disadvantage. One ship of Stafleet officers is all it would take.
What I'm trying to say is that the Borg Collective is relentless, adaptable, and efficient. Make no mistake about it. They will not be stopped by the Federation alone if they come in full force. Even if Starfleet could develop some kind of new superweapon to overcome a cube, how long would it last before it's technology is assimilated?
Now, with that said, I suggest you read some of the TNG 8th season reboot novels. Six of them are devoted entirely to the borg. Three involve a renegade group of drones, and the Destiny trilogy actually explores an all-out invasion of the Federation and it's neighbors. Even with the help of transphasic torpedoes, the hopeless situation seems like a crushing weight to our heroes and the Federation at large. I won't spoil the ending if you haven't read them yet, but it also supports my arguments.
So, I suppose the point everyone has been trying to make is that these Borg are as true to the real deal (in relative terms, naturally) as they're going to get. No amount of tantrums is going to change that. Either you like it or you don't, but don't expect anyone on the mod team to let it bother them one way or the other.
