I'm sorry to interrupt your usual reading, but we have installed this special recruiting message in all journals.
Have you ever thought of joining the Borg?
Yes, I know we've had a bad press, and our invasion of Earth and the battle of Wolf 359 was rather hasty.
We're just asking for a chance to put our past problems behind us, wipe the slate clean and start again.
Here are all the wonderful advantages you will receive as a new drone on a Borg Cube.
FREE cybernetic implants!
Your own customised choice of designation within a specified group. If you want to be Sixteen Of 25, it's yours!
You have the chance to fly in an advanced state-of-the-art Borg Cube with transwarp technology. Far superior than anything else around today.
If you are a member of a race we haven't assimilated before, then you get extra-special VIP treatment. You will be looked after especially by myself, so we can 'get to know you'.
If you are on your own, think of all the friends you'll be making! Millions of voices all in the Collective waiting to meet you and be part of them. Where else can you get such universal friendship?
There have been a few troublemakers around; we need your help to get them out of the way so we can enjoy Borg dominat...I mean harmony. Species 8472 will not be friends with us.
Can you help us wipe them out?
Don't dismiss this lightly. Think about it. Talk to your family and ask them to come along. We do a special 'family assimilation' session. Lots of fun for all!
Thank you for your time and patience; if after this, you're still not quite sure, just remember the company motto.
Resistance Is Futile.
