I think could Section 31 been reason for why the Borg never dare attack UFP in full force.


Let look at the facts TNG in I, Borg suggest at least in thoery Pircard put end Borg colluctive. Even though it is possible plan would not work in pratice all likehood Queturn Borg destory that plan. That may even be the Quarn Borg job to protect colluctive some simple take advance weakness like that. Section 31 without question had greater resourse and been research ways to destory Borg all together perhaps even had the able.


Let face Section 31 neary wipe the founders out in 4 years time.  Kind allow Dominion get only so far when come to destory the UFP. Even possible they reason Dominion fail just want the UFP get more militery able so allow two side kill each other insure UFP vicotry boi attack.


UFP had the techology to destory Borg seem found unethical for some reason. Section 31 have no ethic issue with it and might preven the UFP doing it. So UFP keep be toes came deal with Borg. Possible that also explain why basic no one know about the Borg on TNG Enterpise. Section 31 hid all evidnece of it.

I think the Borg never attack the Federation full force is because they don't need to. Durring the battle of Wolf359, the Borg saw that it would take the Federation almost all of their ships to fight off just one Borg cube. If the Borg wanted to take over the Federation they just need to send like five cubes and the federation is toast.


But if you think about it, what does the Federaion have to offer the Borg? None of the Federation's technology is better, so it wouldn't add to their perfection, which is what the Borg are all about. And since they had already assimilated Picard they know everything he knows.


So there's really no reason for the Borg to go after the Federation

I agree with the above poster that there's no reason why assasimilating the Federation would be the Borg's top priority, but I've never understood why they didn't send two cubes in First Contact. If they barely stopped one cube they'd have no chance against two, it's a tiny increase in resourses and assures success. Seems like the logical choice.

They did attack the UFP massively in 2381, in David Mack's trilogy Destiny. 63 billion lives were lost in the Federation (and its allies?).

In Star Terk TNG Paralles it kind sound like Riker state were UFP nearly defeat by the Borg kind sounds some kind full scale invasion. Lead another question why Borg only deploy full scale invasion after they assimalate Earth.


Why after Borg assimlate few outpost along the Neutral Zone, assimlate USS Raven, USS Tombaugh only after contact USS Enterpise D they start invasion into UFP space. Only After the Borg successful assimlate Earth did do full send fleet Borg cubes. Riker statement Borg are everwere suggestion that Borg did full scale invasion.  So forgive me better way asking question why Borg need assimlate Earth first before doing full scale invasion into UFP terrioiry.  Special one the miltiery effect assimlate Earth limited. Since UFP shipyards, place train starfleet cedets and so forth though out UFP terriory.  


 Forgive me real question I should ask is why Borg need assimalate Earth before they do full scale assulate into UFP teriroiry.


As for saying UFP not threat Borg colluctive in pratice pretty big threat to them.


USS Enterpise D successful design way destory entire Borg collective. Janeway used boiligical attack destory Borg collective.

This is another thing I've always wondered. I'm not an expert on the layout of the Star Trek galaxy, but it seems to me like most of the planets in the Federation would be further "out" (or closer to the other side of the galaxy) than Earth. So why didn't we see the Borg attacking Betezed, the Bolians, or Vulcan before Earth like with the Dominion on Ds9? The Borg basically had to pass by lots of potential species just to get to Earth in The Best of Both Worlds, which also alerted the Federation that they were coming in advance. I know Earth is the capital, but it's not like humans "biological and technological distinctiveness" is inherently better than Vulcans or Andorians. I know the obvious answer here is that it was just more dramatic to have them attacking Earth, but it still didn't quite make sense to me.

Before Borg assimlate Pircard did even seem interest in Earth. It kind like what ever reason they had start straignt heading to Earth had to do Pircard. Means some information that they get from Pircard made them make that call. Also had do why Borg choose full scale invasion into UFP space after they assimlate Earth is another question unknown.  Star Terk TNG Paralles want into anything could happen does happen in some timeline one those timeline Riker openly stated the Borg everywere and UFP for the must part  was destory.

Interesting thought- that Picard's assimilation was directly responsible.

Well the Borg going straignt path to Earth until assimlate Pircard they also did ask escort section 001 to being assimalating. there demands were first only Pircard.
