The Borg are an alien group that appear as recurring antagonists in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are cybernetic organisms linked in a hive mind called "the Collective". The Borg co-opt the technology and knowledge of other alien species to the Collective through the process of " assimilation ": forcibly transforming individual beings into "drones" by injecting nanoprobes into their bodies and surgically augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg's ultimate goal is "achieving perfection". Aside from being recurring antagonists in the Next Generation television series, they are depicted as the main threat in the film Star Trek: First Contact.

Star Trek and the Taming of the Borg
The Star Trek series is in pretty dire straits right now. With the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise, it is the first time for a long while that there hasn't been a Star Trek series on television. While it's generally debatable at what point the Star Trek universe took a turn for the worse, it is obvious that Trekkies are eager to revisit the final frontier.
The Borg were a pseudo-species of cybernetic humanoids , or cyborgs , from the Delta Quadrant known as drones. No single individual truly existed within the Borg Collective with the possible exception of the Borg Queen , as all Borg were linked into a hive mind which connected all of them and allowed information from every drone who had been brought into the collective to be shared. Their ultimate goal was the attainment of 'perfection' through the forcible assimilation of diverse sentient species, technologies, and knowledge which would be added and absorbed into the hive mind. As a result, the Borg were among the most powerful and feared entities in the galaxy, without really being a true species at all. The physiology of each Borg drone varied according to the species from which it was assimilated.
