they'd inject modified nanoprobes to kill them the same way they (7of9 Voyager) took out species 8472

In Star Trek Armada there was a level where you were a Borg cube and had to set up a base and assimilate a Vorta cloning facility... I tried to send 2 cubes to take it and the Jem'Hadar made a kamikaze run and took out both cubes and only ended up losing 5 or 6 ships in the process. Then they sent a fleet in to wipe out my base, they lost most of the fleet but I was crippled until new dominion ships were built to come finish me off... on the second try I built a massive fleet before facing the dominion... would the Borg get a 2nd chance if they encountered the dominion?


Elim Garak: Remember: it's not just Tain we're looking for. The Maryland, the Proxima, the Sarajevo, Starfleet ships that have been lost in the Gamma Quadrant for years; and their crews - brave soldiers, warriors of the Federation unaccounted for... We owe it to them to do everything in our power to find them and bring them home. It's the honorable thing to do. Worf: You use that word, but you have no idea what it means. Elim Garak: Maybe not. But you do.

Thats hard. Neither the borg or the Jem'Hadar care if they die. I would have to say the dominion, though, mstly because of the founders abilities.

Well the founders could probably change them selves in to some kind of dumb animal or one of those borgies or inanimate object and then there would never be any kind of interest there. Heck it can turn it self in to a nanoPand or a pile of them if it wanted to. Nuf said.

The Jem'Hadr have their edged hand to hand weapons, and we've seen how the Borg reacted to hand weapons in First Contact (hard to adapt to your arm being chopped off). The Founders could "become" Borg drones by stealing parts from the left over bodies after the Jem'Hadr had chopped some up. The Vorta would be useless, except to die. The Drones would probably adapt to the Jem'Hadr shrouding pretty quickly, but they don't really need it that much. Both breed so quickly, they wouldn't run out of troops too soon.

"What would happen if the Dominion met the Borg?"


The Borg would suddenly have a huge army of genetically-altered cloned drones.

Close call, but the Dominion might have a slight advantage.


The Borg seem partial to assimilating humanoids (8472 had them running scared), I don't know why, but for some reason, I have this gut feeling the Borg wouldn't want to assimilate Jem Hadar, sorta like the Kazon.


The borg don't seem to put too much effort into protecting their hive-brain achilles heel. Whenever someone wants to be strategic (No one does strategy like the Dominion)in taking them on, that's usually what they go for. Think the biggest weakness is that they're more or less predictable. The thing is, I bet if they could hold off the Dominion long enough, they'd adapt and suddenly massacre them.

however in Unimatrix Zero we see the borg addapt to fighting styles, so it is hard to say what would happen there. if anything the Jem'Hadar's ability to shroud themselves would tip the scales in their favor, at least for a time.
