Resistance is futile; you will listen to this episode as Eugenia and Gerri talk Borg. Are they the best villains ever come up with in a Sci Fi show? Whilst this species (if you can call them that), first came to our attention with the first appearance of Q and proved to Starfleet that there were some nasty surprises out there in the big bad Universe! So, where did they come from? There are many different ideas to where the originated, including, nano technology, to the integration of V’ger and Ilia and many more! If you want to find out more visit Memory Beta (A Star Trek Wiki) at http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Borg_history. Is the Borg one of the scariest baddies ever thought, what with assimilation, adaption, and their hive mind as the main weapons? One of the most iconic scenes in Sci Fi happened when Jonathan Frakes directed First Contact, who was not amazed as the Queen was constructed before our eyes? Then we turn to ST: Voyager when 7of 9, comes to us as the sexy Borg and we learn so much more about their ways! Then along comes the Borg children and one of those is whom Eugenia and Gerri interview in this episode. Manu Intiraymi, known as Icheb, the child who was made into a weapon by his people talks Borg and Star Trek. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scotty from First Contact Conventions for the opportunity to interview Manu.
