- This article refers to the assimilated Borg as a species. You may instead be looking for the playable liberated Borg or the Borg Collective faction.
 Physical appearance
Borg are a cybernetic life-form. Mostly humanoid species have been assimilated, thus almost all Borg Drones have a humanoid appearance. Roughly half of a victim's organic body is replaced by cybernetic implants and nano-technology during assimilation. Since the Borg deem aesthetics to be irrelevant, these implants may very well disfigure and mutilate the subject. During the 24th and 25th century the assimilation process has evolved quickly, leading to ever more extreme forms of replacing host organs and limbs with prosthesis'.
 Adaptation and Remodulation
- When fighting the Borg in ground combat, it is critical to have some way of overcoming their adaptations. This is most easily achieved by possessing a Frequency Remodulator, which can be obtained for free from ship replicators in the inventory. More advanced players may be able to use a Fractal Remodulator, or the final set bonuses from the M.A.C.O, Omega Force, or Honor Guard ground item sets.
- Upcoming changes to adaptation: 
- Adaptation is handled separately for each player, so there is no need to worry about the damage type employed by other players: 
- Borg drones that manage to close to within melee range of a player may attempt to use Assimilation Nanites on them; players who fall below 25% health while under the effects of this will be assimilated and turned into drones themselves. During this state, the player is unable to control their character, who will proceed to attack any nearby friendly players or NPC's until they are defeated. This fate can be averted by the timely use of Immunosupport Nanite Injectors or the Medical Nanite Cloud ability. Vascular Regenerator (Available on Medic and Physician Science Kits) can also be used to remove the nanites.
