Versus

The Daleks...

Who would win do you think?

Would the Borg assimilate the Daleks... or would the Daleks exterminate the Borg?

Interesting question. I want to say the Borg but the Daleks sound pretty formidable as well. I shall have to think about this more....

Seriously... While the Borg and Dalek were fighting it out, the Replicators would come in and take over.

Anyone who watched SG-1 knows the replicators...

If I had a choice... I wanna have 7of9 come in and tell me "Resistance is futile"... :hehehehe:

The cybermen would be so weak against the Borg lol.

The borg would come in with their shields and just take them out. The Daleks on the other hand... their armour is so powerful

Its a tough one. Then again I suppose the replicators could come in and just eat both the Borg and the Daleks.

if I was to go with the question as it was posed originally... Borg over the Dalek.
They have superior technology, and are relentless in their assimilation of entire planets... the hive mind and the shared knowledge / stolen technology of their kind would make them way more powerful.

*nods*


Then the replicators would come and eat them. :lol:

Sorry Toby, my man... Didnt mean to replicate your thread...

But when it comes to relentless and overwhelming little machines from outer space...the replicators get my vote as A#1 nasties in the galaxy. *nods*

I vote for the Borg. They're hard-core. They'd probably even eat the replicators for lunch with a side of potato salad.

The Borg would win for sure! They can 'adapt' to anything the daleks wanna throw at them. Although the replicators are pretty hardcore too.

Of course, it's going to be the Borg.

You know what I always wondered? How come all the Borg designations are usually numbers, while Picard's is 'Locutus'? This especially confused me in the episode where the NG crew rescue a bord they later named Hugh, and Picard insists, while testing Hugh's loyalty to the crew, that 'Hugh' is 'Not a Borg designation'. Then how come 'Locutus' is? *confuzzled*

If I remember correctly (and it has been quite a while), wasn't Captain Picard supposed to be some super-important Borg? Maybe the few important Borgs have names (Locutus, the Borg Queen, etc.) while all the others have numbers. Don't really know, though.

Daleks no contest! They would turn time and space against the Borg - having far more experience in such matters. Remember, the Daleks were virtual new comers to using time and space a weapon, and the Timelords were harden veterans (in a manner of speaker :uhhuhuh: of cause, those familiar with Doctor Who mytho will understand what I mean) but the Daleks gave them a run for their money.

The Borg have what, travelled through time a couple of times? BOOM! Time Paradox, Borg never existed.

In the ancient Dalek language Borg means Prison Bitch.

The Borg. From all of the 10 minutes that I've seen of Doctor Who, I can tell that the fancy upside down garbage cans were pathetic enemies.

Daleks, i agree with infinate grey on this one, being a hardened Dr Who fan, i have seen the way they deal with any race.

The borg need the collective to work, seporate them from thier ship and they are usless, seporate a dalek from thier ship and they become raging mechanical monsters who cause mayhem.

EXTERMINATE!!!!:hahugh:

Wait a minute...once a Borg is off the ship, does it no longer have access to the hive mind?

I agree, the Replicators would just use the Daleks and the Borg to replicate more of them, afterall, both the Dalek's and the Borg, are made of technology and metal, they'd be like an all-you-can-eat buffet!.

No, the Borg are made of metal, so, the Replicators could easily eat the Borg, and replicate more of themselves!.

*scratches head*

I was puzzled by that too. I've watched enough Voyager to know the Borgs are still affected by hives whether they are on a Borg ship or not (ex. 7 just about went bonkers once due to a tampered piece of Borg equipment which had been planted by an alien race intent on killing the Borg off)

Incidentally, I found an article describing several instances of Borg that had some sense of self and names as designations - http://www.startrek.com/startrek/view/features/documentaries/article/4955.html

I think the Borg's intellectual superiority might be their downfall. They have depth. They have religion. There is a purpose behind their obssesion for assimilation. They have been known to negotiate...
Daleks have no aim or thought other than to survive and to exterminate all other races. They might just be re-inforced pepper pots but they have the heart of Ridley Scott's "Alien" and a wealth of time and space warping technology behind them.

They gave him a name because they thought it would make us more comfortable to talk to someone with a more personal identity. Thus letting us be assimilated easier. Which of course failed.

They are always connected to the hive mind, think of it as a really big wireless network that can reach across galaxies :)

As to the original question, I'm not sure who would win but I'm fairly sure that the Borg would not assimilate the Daleks as they would be seen as an inferior bit of technology compared to them.

I mean really, they are little more than guns that have wheels and can think.

Actually on further thought, Borg would win. They have that adaptive technique with shielding so eventually they would be able to block anything the Daleks threw at them.

Some of you people need to brush up on your Dalek history.. .seriously :hehehe:

This is according to the hubby. Because the Borg and the Daleks both need other races to continue their species they`re weaker and have weaknesses wheas the replicators only need metal to survive making them the alfa male of this prison.

I say the Daleks but that`s just `cause they`re nifty!

Infinite Grey

Daleks do not "need" other races - but have used them in the past.

I'm not sure I want to know how Dalek's reproduce.

ROFL!!!

And thanks for the article too. It's really interesting. The names were something that always confused me! My dad is a massive Trekkie so I spent most of my formative years watching Picard, Janeway and Sisko's adventures in space...

One of the few perks of my dad's illness is that he can now watch the same episodes over and over, because he never remembers what happened the first time around! We always laugh about that.

He also loves Stargate. The Replicators scare me. _inabox_ For some reason he even watches Enterprise *shudders* The only good thing about Enterprise is Porthos. Space beagle FTW!
