Seems simple enough of a versus scenario. Who wins in single combat? The Cylons or the Borg?

I'm assuming you mean the Cylons from nBSG.

Toasters for the win.

This would be an interesting match.  The Cylons don't have any energy based weapons for the borg to adapt to and the borg cube has sheer mass and stronger weapons.

Standard Cubes are easily damaged before they adapt and the weapons on the Cylon ship are easily capable of wiping out cities.

Going for the Cylons on this one due to the borgs lack of strategy.

Oh well if we must again.

Cylon's to win in first round, before the Borg ship is blown up it sends a data to the central net. Then all Brog ship from then on will cook the tin cans :cool:

When has a Borg vessel ever shown this ability? On the flip side, we know for sure the Cylons have this capability through resurrection.

That doesn't really say much. Little Boy destroyed a city, and it had a yield under 20 kilotons.

You mean like the Borg Queen?

True but they should be able to do sufficent damage to eventually destroy the cube.  And since they have no direct energy weapons the borg can't adapt.  The Borg still have the advantage of being much larger, but have no real heavy anti ship weapons I am aware of.

Visual evidence suggests that frequency-based weapons actually pose a greater threat to the Borg than non-frequency-based weapons. Right from the beginning, we see phasers punching holes into Borg cubes while torpedoes produce no noticable damage. ("Q Who?") In the next major encounter, phasers still did more appreciable damage than torpedoes, with the exception of quantum torpedoes. ("First Contact.") Indeed, the fact that it's frequency-based weapons that they are concerned with adapting to indicates that non-frequency-based weapons might not be as great a threat as you might think. Add to that that the Cylon weapons, while capable of killing off most people in a city, yet do minimal damage to the structures of those same cities (overall), indicate lower yields.

All the borg adaptation seems to rely on adapting to a frequency. ¿The reason the non frequency weapons seem to do minimal damage is the sheer mass of the thing and the fact that starfleet torpedoes are not shaped to direct most of the explosive force into the target.
