The Borg

Post#1 » Thu Apr 06, 2006 6:52 pm

Post ideas about ships for the Borg Race. This should be used in helping Zap and Bane come up with a new shiplist. Post Ideas about exceptable race advantages too

Nothing this ship does cannot be done better by the B200 or Iron Slave.
Up to tech3, add 3 torps and this becomes better.
Consider this the Borg Pyramid.

B41___________2__1__4__-__-____8___35__270____70___40__20___6__15
NB41__________4__1__2__-__4__773___96__378____90__273__91__91_184

Same problem with this ship, B200 or Iron Slave does the job better.
So, up to tech4, drop 2 beams, add 4 torps.
Consider this the Borg Diamond.

Quietus CC____7__4__6__-__6_1746__576__756___192__546_183_183_366

For 20 less minerals, the cost of the weapons added, buy a Firecloud.
We now have a Borg Sphere.
This could serve as a front for Annihilations or Biocides.

Ok, now that those guys are updated...
I think I need to talk to someone about finding pics of:
A Borg Pyramid, Diamond & Sphere.
:?

I'll be needing a pic of each type so that I can edit the three borg
pics in resource.pln.

I may look at them in Starfleet Command 3.
See if they're sufficiently detailed for me to work up pics.
The borg fleet will look borgish!

I'll get back to you and thanks.

Any luck?
Yes, good & bad.
Diamond was done a long time ago... it went with my crash
a few weeks ago.

:(

8 bays on the biocide as opposed to 10?
Nah.

One thing I really like about PList is no super carriers in the borg fleet.

IMHO the FC should be down graded to 4 beam, 2 torp, lower mass and lower cargo. As it is, it's too hard to kill and doesn't require a lot of protection. This is, strategically speaking, an important move. Force the Borg to rethink leaving them out in the open. I know the hive is going to hate that idea.

Leave the Borg alone,

apart from the freighters/alchemy ships everyone else has, the borg really only need the 2 cubes, firecloud and probe. This is the reason the firecloud needs some firepower and needs to die in battle and not be captured.

The rest of the ships unique to the borg are uselass unless some addon gives them an ability.

If you really want to change on of the borg ships, change the B222 so it has 1 beam and 7 torps like the Thor..... so i can send it in first against those disgusting Rushes :wink:
