    How weird: I'm seeing messages I wrote 17 years ago, before Google Groups even existed. It must have assimilated some other discussion group I was part of. Good times.

    Besides, Seven said in a log entry in "Hope and Fear" that Quantum Slipstream technology was similar to the transwarp drive used by the Borg. The Borg have the
    ability to travel throughout the galaxy very quickly, so while they would assimilate QS tech, they hardly need it for anything. Remember, they still assimilate simple warp-capable shuttles ("Dark Frontier" -- the Collective voice
    said "Warp signature detected...prepare for assimilation...relevant technology...engage tractor pulse.") but obviously the Borg aren't going to limit
    themselves to warp drive.

    It was unlikely that he had a self-destruct device aboard; his stated purpose
    was to make sure that Voyager's crew would be assimilated without any way to
    escape; to have a self-destruct device at all would invite the Voyager crew to
    use it to get out of that fate.
    Besides, they assimilated the rest of Artutis' people..._SOMEONE_ knew
    how the QS drive worked.
