    I'm going with the Borg - they can adapt and assimilate anything (with an crappy enough/no immune system, for those who will hold up Species 8472 as an counter-argument. Sure, Terminators might take one or two out ... but by the time they get to the third, the personal shielding has kicked in and the Borg just assimilate, add the Terminator technological distinctiveness to their own. :dontknow:

    Any thoughts?

    Yes, they can assimilate organic and inorganic material; in fact, when they capture a new spaceship, standard procedure is for them to assimilate it (see USS Raven.)

    I'd go for Borg. Star Trek > Terminator any day in my book. Weren't Species 8272 defeated by humans anyhow? Who in turn Borg surpass, so it's not really that simple.

    An entire race (arguably more than just one race) against a single cyborg assassin? Please. That wouldn't even be a fair fight.

    Species 8472 could resist assimilation because their immune system destroyed the nanoprobes before they can get to work. However, the Borg and Voyager's crew worked together (:eek3:) to modify nanoprobes to kill Species 8472 and deliver them in weapon-form.

    How about a single Borg cube against an equivalent number of Terminators?

    Depends, are we talking Arnie, or the full range of Terminators?

    Do Borg personal shields work against physical objects?

    Full range and yes, they do.

    I've got to say, I can only vaguely remember that war. It's been far too long, although I'll stick with Borg regardless. :tongue:

    How the **** would the Voth own them both? The Borg have already assimilated the Voth - they know the secrets, the Voth can't even hide from them because the Borg will have developed counter-technology.

    Assimilating a few doesn't make them auto immune. Q even states that the voth could potentially take down the Borg although I don't remember when as I have not watched in ages.

    I'm biased though

    No, but it means they have the knowledge already to defeat them. Q's opinions are dubious, though, because they have the power to alter the 'rules' - it would be like the Krenim making predictions.

    It was in a novel, Strange New Worlds, so not even canon - it was a fan theory.
