From Star Trek Timelines

The Borg as potential allies, members of your Federation? A threat unlike any you've ever faced, indeed.
~ Q
A Borg fleet has just dropped out of warp in the Alpha Quadrant... or dropped out of time. These could be Borg from the future, with technology we have no defense against. Our only hope is a swift and severe response.
~ Admiral William T. Riker

  • Admiral William T. Riker: "All vessels are ordered to converge on the Borg fleet's location and engage before they can make their next move. Any questions, Captain?"
  • Choice A: Acknowledge and follow orders. [Support Federation]
    • Captain: "Understood. We'll set course immediately."
    • Admiral William T. Riker: "Very good. Riker out."
  • Choice B: Question being the aggressor. [Support Borg]
    • Captain: "Shouldn't we wait and see if the Borg pose a threat before we fire?"
    • Admiral William T. Riker: "I'll wait and see for the Romulans, the Klingons, the Ferengi, the Dominion... but when it comes to the Borg, I've learned to shoot first."
  • Choice C: Wonder what the Borg are up to. [Support Borg]
    • Captain: ""
    • Admiral William T. Riker: "The Borg have had their chance at diplomacy, Captain. We may be explorers, but we're defenders too. Defend the Federation.
Mission Introduction
Rapid Response The line must be drawn here. The Borg must know that whether their arrival was an accident or not, their presence in the Alpha Quadrant will not be tolerated. – Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Into the Lion's Den The Borg will not engage unless they view you as a threat. Unfortunately, boarding their ship may be the very thing that tips that balance. Use extreme caution. – Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Kicking the Nest Even devoting a few moments to speaking with you, instead of controlling the Collective... it was too much. The drones of this ship are now acting on their own power. But I have no doubt you will escape them. – Borg Queen
Bearing Up
Scatter Thine Enemies You value your individuality. Know that now you act as any drone might, mindlessly following the orders of your superiors. Destroy me, and destroy the last vestige of what makes you human. – Borg Queen
