This has now acquired an official name "Before Dishonor" (which David has kinda used as a title before - see Death Before Dishonor). 15:21, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Is the excerpt in Resistance the same one as the Magazine? The one in the magazine has Janeway talking with a certain famous Starfleet captain. --8of5 05:12, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
That's the one. – Turtletrekker 07:07, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

"Resitance" tells us that all Borg are male until made female in the form of the Queen. "Before Dishonor" states that this is not only a wrong idea, but also a stupid idea. Which will we call cannon? --AT2Howell 19:26, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Simple question, if all Borg are males what does that make seven of nine then? As well as sevens mother and all of the other Borg females that have been seen throughout Star Trek? Besides, the Borg reproduce. You see that they reproduce in an episode of TNG/Voyager and Seven of nine also says in an episode of Voyager that the Borg reproduce. This decision that all Borg are males is not canon, and the author should have done his research properly it seems. Lord Yaksha 12:41, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
Actually Seven says I don't understand. The Borg assimilate. They do not reproduce in this fashion. --mko 23:29, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
How do we tell J.M. Dillard this? – 20:19, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

One of Seven's fellow drones in the episode Survival Instinct was also female.--Emperorkalan 02:26, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Yep, there are many canon and non-canon female drones. However functionally a drone is sexless, it doesn't matter whether the original person was male or female once they are assimilated they are just another drone, with the exception of the queen who as we learnt in Resistance is specially resequenced to make her a female of quite specific appearance. --8of5 21:10, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

i have read the book, it was excellent, and i read it very quickly so probably missed out on or forgot a few details, i plan to read it again soon :) Perhaps when drones are created they are all male, but obviously assimilated ones can be any sex? And the book wasn't exactly canon, so we must respect any non-canon features or information in it. Tresmius 14:40, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

TNG novel: Greater Than the Sum explains all of this. It's almost as if Christopher L. Bennett read this page. Strange... – AT2Howell 03:07, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Removed Review Edit

A stinker.

Characters both familiar and new act in a completely uncharacteristic manner. It is as though the author has never seen Patrick Stewart's portrayal of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
