Once the Borg drones adapt, the storm troopers wouldn't stand a chance

well the storm troopers kill a few drones. THen the drones adapt. The drones assimilate all the stormtroopers. Then we have a new type of drone.

Storm trooper carbines and heavy weapons lack the frequency cohesion that the Drones depend upon for adaptation purposes, and they have access to slugthrower weapons like flechette launchers and rocket/grenade launchers.  They also carry thermal detonators.  

The Borg Drones, limited to melee combat and moving at half a kilometer per hour, will never catch the Storm Troopers, who need merely fire upon them while slowly walking backwards until they are all dead.

The Borg would adapt and assimilate.

And I see someone completely ignores prior posting...

I read the other posts; I just put my opinion. IF they can't adapt, though, does that mean they can't assimilate?

As I stated, the Storm Trooper weapons, by their nature, present a problem for the Borg. They adapt to the fequency of the phasers via a shielding mechanism, likely by tunin ghtier frequency to be 180 out from it. A plasma weapon like an E-11 blaster, by its very nature, lacks that cohesion to adapt to. It's likely they could 'adapt' to a degree, and mitigate the damage to a degree, but the Stormies can counter that by cranking up the power on their guns. They've also got access to KE weapons that the Borg have no defense against.  

Hampering them further is that the Borg have no ranged attack capacity. They have to get up and make melee contact with the enemy.  Couple with their slow movement speed (they're called space zombies or techno zombies for a reason), and you've got a defending gunner's wet dream. If, by some happenstance, a Storm Trooper is 'probed' his comrades, being sociopathic bastards to the last, will promptly gun him down without a second thought.

Ok, ok, I read it. I know they'd totally win, but in space they'd totally loose to a Borg ship. Stormtroopers come from a movie series where almost all the technologies are better than ST, anyway.

Depends on the ship.  Turbo Lasers are not actually lasers (visible beam, noticeable, gigaton level KE punch, lack of lenses in the firing mechanism, slower than C speed, etc) and operate like blasters with a much heavier punch.

Yt-3000 freighter, yeah, that loses unless it can run. ISD? Hope you've got a fleet at your back. You'll need it.  

And Star Trek is not always more primitive than Wars. Their medical technology, for example, is about on par with one another.

Medical, yes, and maybe holos and replicators/transporters, but almost everything else, I think, though with speed it's hard to tell since they don't measure in Warp like Trek. In Wars they've also explored almost all of their galaxy, unlike Trek. The Enterprise would probably loose miserably to any type of war ship in Wars.

I think it was once stated that warp 9.9 is equal to about 26,000 times the speed of light. A class I hyperdrive enables Venator assault ships to pull about 53,000,000 times the speed of light.   The tradeoff is that Hyperdrive isn't as tactically flexible as Warp (you can't use it to manuever about in battle as easily) and there are also severe problems if your failsafes don't kick in and stop you (the planet that was the birthplace of the Invisible Hand (flagship of the separatist fleet), was obliterated when a Venator's failsafes, either by accident or deliberate sabotage by her Clone crew, failed to engage and she smashed into the world).

Thanks, I'm pretty rusty with SW facts. It was my obsession before Trek, and I used wookieepedia all the time for everything.

If a dozen Ewoks can wipe out the Stormtroopers, an equal number of Borg will have no problem.
