Borg Cube - Assimilation

The Borg are driven to assimilate worlds, stripping them of resources and technology to fuel their unending drive for perfection. During a Borg Cube’s activation it will Engage Player Starships in Space Combat, Execute a Command Card, and finally, it will attempt to Assimilate any Developed System the Cube orbits. This counts as a Planetary Invasion, however the Borg are interested in taking control of the planet, they will scour it bare and use those resources to construct a Borg Spire, and in turn a new Borg Cube.   The Borg Cube starts the Invasion with nine Attack Dice. Just as in a Space Combat, the defender will get a First Strike attack against the Cube. The System being Assimilated rolls a die for each Structure on the world. Each successful hit will damage the Cube; moving a die to t ...

Borg Cube - Movement

The merciless intelligence driving the Borg is constantly looking to perfect their biological and technological superiority by assimilating other species and technologies. These directives are represented in the Borg Assimilation game expansion with the Borg Command deck.   During the Borg game turn each player, in turn order, will pick a Borg Cube in play to activate. First the Cube will Engage Player Ships in Space Combat. Then, if the Cube is victorious, the player will draw and execute a Borg Command Card for the Cube. Finally, if the Cube is in orbit of a Developed System after it executes the direction of the Command Card, it will attempt to assimilate the world. After that, the player will place a Borg Activation Token on the Cube to show that it has been activated and then the next player w ...

Borg Cube - Space Combat

A Borg Cube is one of the most formidable challenges players can face in Gale Force Nine’s Borg Assimilation Game Expansion. Confrontation with one of these engines of destruction is inevitable. Caught unprepared, a battle with the Borg can be devastating. When one civilization brings the full weight of their fleets to bear or teams with a rival civilization to confront a Cube, the Borg can be defeated, but often at great cost. A Space Battle against a Borg Cube is similar to a battle between players with a few key differences. On the Borg turn, each player will choose a Borg Cube in play to activate. The Cube’s first action will be to initiate a Space Battle with every Starship in the same and adjacent Sectors. In this way, two or more different players can find themselves battling the Borg together. ...

Borg Assimilation Exploration Cards

While there are many wonders to discover in space, the cosmos also holds threats and dangers; the Borg Assimilation Game Expansion adds up to 20 new Exploration Cards to your games. Brave explorers may encounter Borg Cubes, worlds under siege by the Borg, worlds already consumed by the Borg and other encounters with these mysterious invaders. One of the most direct ways that the Borg can manifest in the game is to encounter a Borg Cube while exploring a new planetary system; The Borg Cube Crisis simply places a Borg Cube in the System. Thankfully, the Borg Cube won’t take notice of the explorer’s vessel yet. However, even if there are no Borg in play, the Borg are always dealt a Turn Order Card in the Initiative Stage, so there if the explorer’s turn is before the Borg turn, the Cube will react to the presence of the intruding vessel during the ...
