>and lucifer is definitly right , they just ment those specific phasers.

>then why is it contantly showing up with the borg if it was just those specific weapons? And BTW, it is not just with energy weapons that we have seen this with either. In Unimatrix Zero, when koroth attacks the drones that invaded UZ he was able to take out two out of three, but the third one dodge his attacks, clearly showing that they also adapt to fighting styles as well as when Janeway entered the fight a moment later she was able to use koroths weapon to take out the last drone without any problem.

if they did not mean those specific phasers then they would have adapted to federation phasers in like the first episode when the borg apear and they wouldnt be able to use the phasers every other episode later like they do .

this is actually something that i have put some thought into, and have discused with other fans. in the end we agreed that this is because the borg do not keep a perticular adaptation on their drones at all times. We theorized that if they don't come into contact with a perticular weapon, in this case phasers, for a given amount of time they store the adaptation into whatever consists of a primary computer for them, which they can access at any time they come into contact with that weapon.


this is why every time the borg come up against Starfleet, they have to readapt to a weapon. onr reason for this is posibly becuase the internal processors are unable to store large amounts of data in them, hense the need for speciallty drones (medical, tactical, ect...).


hopefully you understand that, now can you explain it to me.

this method would seem icnredibly well... stupid , it would be a lot simpler to store the data on a cube , which in theory they should ahve more then of space and just send it to the drones when they need it , i would understand them not doing this for every species , but when the major playors like the federation are racking up hundreds if not thousands or hundreds of thousands of kills with there phasors it would seem only logical to do this.


ps question to the floor , do most people use science or startreck lure to answer questions?

or they could store the stuff on the cube as well. THe point is, despite how stupid it sounds to you, this seems to be the way that the borg do things, as it does explain why it usually does take 1-12 drones to adapt.

It depends on the question that is being asked. but most of the time i realy on trek canon to answer questions, or base my answers off of trek canon, as i have already shown.
