Wouldn't it have been logical...

...for the bad guys of DS9 to have been the Borg?
Sisko has a very personal grudge against the Borg, what with them killing his wife and all, they still could've had the Cardies but the Borg would've added even more drama to the show.
I loved how DS9 turned out and it actually didn't need the Borg but wouldn't it have been - logical?

I figured they would make an ep where they find a Borg cube or sphere or something in the Gamma Quadrant. They made an ep for Enterprise, and considering Ira Steven Behr came up with the Borg idea, and one of the executive producer of DS9, you.would think they would.

Too obvious - and it would be too much like Picard's grudge.

I would have liked it once. But especially with voy, it would have been too much to milk them in ds9. A gamma quadrant encounter would have been cool. Jem hadar v borg with the defiant in the middle, but the borg were mainly interested in humanity in the alpha and beta it would seem.

There are a few possibilites for a Borg episode on DS9:

1. Another invasion of Earth. (well the Borg considered that in the VOY episode Dark Frontier)
2. A Borg vessel turns up in the Gamma Quadrant. (possibly)

However knowing the Borg if they ventured into the Gamma Quadrant they would have inevitably found the Dominion. And shortly after that there were would be a massive Borg attack on the Dominion. But if that happened the Dominion wouldn't have attacked the Federation.

Guilty as charged: fan fic writer. Go to Ad Astra and search for the author Ln X or the series DS9: a continuation. My fan fic stories are on that site.

That would have been a good way to end the war, introduce the dominion to the borg. The borg find the founders to be superior to humanoids and then concentrate their efforts there.

Shape-shifting drones would be pretty useful, I imagine.

It would have been wiser, in my professional opinion, to put a Borg episode in DS9 than to put one in ENT as they did. Again I say that there was no need for a Borg episode in DS9 as its a fab show without it... but there was no need for a Borg episode in ENT either... and it would simply have made more sense and more drama in DS9.

I liked the Enterprise Borg ep, but I always wanted to see a Borg meet Dominion ep, it would have made an interesting twist. Start the ep with a debris field of Jem'Hadar ships, with a cube flying through, and end the ep with the.Dominion finally destroying it. Somewhere in the middle Odo goes rouge to save his people, the Defiant has to save him, but find out they didn't need saving, so Odo's effort was pointless, and a big disappointment for him. Sounds like a good one, huh?

The borg are gone now. You want a borg movie with ds9 characters- make Destiny a movie and get mr david mack some royalties.

Let's not get carried away now, a book wouldn't do it justice, my whole idea is from a debris field that looked amazing in HD in my head. Without the HD, it would be lousy. Unless...

Sorry, dude, this would take place before Jadzia dies. Probably season 3 or 4.
