no they did not create the borg. heres my theory. at one time there was a race they developed naoprobes to heal wounds and the nano probers became inteligent and started asimulating the population
|actuly the Q are afraid of the borg. and the borg queen tells data in first contact that the borg were once like humans and if the borg were created by someone in the Q cotinuim the rest wouldve eliminated the borg along time ago|
from the star trek voyager episode Q2 when Q tells his son we don't want to tick of the borg
Hrm, let's see. A single Q can end existance as the universe knows it with a thought, and they are scared of one metal clad pu$$y race because why? The only fear they have are the fears that they will come into breech with Q continum policy and get a slap on the wrist because of it...
PS- Also, power wise, it is not really feasable to compare the Q to the Orii. The ancients in Star Gate are maybe one step up from the Wormhole Aliens in Deep Space 9 only because they don't live... in a HOLE, heh. I know Voyager went a long way in trying to humanize the Q but I suspect any difference of opinion in the Q continum is only allowed to foster some soft of amusement for them.
|lets get this strat the Q did not create the borg. The borg were once carbon based life form. The borg Queen in star trek first contact even admitted to being like humans once.|
Even though I doubt Q, any other Q, or the Q Continuum actually created the Borg (this is just a what if?) your statement doesn't prove anything!! Those could've been false memories implanted into them to make them believe they're a real race when they might not be.
|Ok if the Q created the borg and thats one big if it would certainly goin with their m.o.The continum have a fascination with humans on a whole and their drive to better themseves ,i wouldnt be unlike the Q to test that drive with an ultimate enemy like the borG.I repeat again this is only a slim posibility,one that i highly doubt.|
Though the Q are omnipotent, they seem to be guided by their own rules, one of which appears to forbid too much tinkering with lifeforms in the galaxy. They may not be allowed to wipe out an entire species or create one - though I agree that they are certainly capable of doing either - without bringing down judgment by their fellow Q.
I fully believe that Q is capable of making real situations and real beings, however, he is limited by the boundaries imposed by his fellow Q. This may be why Picard referred to Q's "illusions" in "QWho?" as intimating that what Q creates is not real. We know that Q is able to and has created real situations. But I do not believe he created the Borg.
The Borg are just one of the ST universe's "naturally-evolving" species that Q was aware of and decided to use to teach a lesson to Picard. The Q do not fear the Borg, they simply follow their own rules of engagement and sending the Borg off on a quest to upset the balance of the galaxy may be one of them. In "Q2", Q's line was "Don't provoke the Borg" which, implies that the Continuum has established guidelines regarding the use of the Borg. Q2 suddenly thrust three Borg cubes into battle with U.S.S. Voyager which would have had repercussions that Continuum would rather not deal with.
