Default Questions for Ritual. Borg Boss? Borg Boots? Do they look like borg?

First off...No criticism intended.

Borg Boss? What ever happened to the Queen?

Borg wearing boots???? Thats a first... From the Borgs first appearence in 1988 to present date in every Star Trek episode, game, toy action figure, comic book etc... the Borg have never worn boots. Why in EF2?

Not that I work with ritual but I bet I can answer your questions

1)Remeber, the queen has been cut off from most of the collective, this drone may have taken over and become King of the sphere, otherwise she could have direct control over him and is simply using his body.

2) Go back and watch First Contact again, one of the drones steps out of his alcove and you can see very plainly that he has boots. What else do you think they'd where? Teletubby tennis shoes? [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Ahhh... your correct Nurbs. I remember she was destroyed in that movie, Picard snapped her neck in-two after the flesh melted away.

In the movie... watching now...I see mechanical toes and servoes in what sort of appears to be boots...but they are not boots.

Teletubby tennis shoes would look alright [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

You can't think in 3 dimensions when talking about the Borg Queen.

It's all "exoplating" generated by their implants. So, yeah, I have issues with the over exaturated boots, also the gauntlets. They remind me more of Robocop in the screenshot.

Ritual, please don't take this too harsh. You're doing a great job. I mean this only in the most constructive way. Maybe you should tone them down, a bit. And make them match the rest of the suit. Also the Borg skin (flesh) needs to be more mottled. Borg implants are known to cause skin irritation. And they're fresh out of analgesic cream. Hey, just a buttinsky suggestion.

Heheh, you silly humans, you all think in such 3 Dimensional terms..... p.

The Borg Queen is ever present, she is the collective and therefore exists whereever the collective exists . They've shown that several times on Voyager.

Also, re-watch the last episode of Voyager, that Borg queen was destroyed while the sphere was chasing Voyager.
