The Lyrics

The big Las Vegas Star Trek convention kicks off 08/01/18, and I though I would use the occasion to finish up yet another piece of Star Trek filk. Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
There comes a time
When you hear a certain call
When your world is first detected by us
We will scan your people
Oh, and determine if you're worth our time
To conquer or destroy

We will go on
Forever and a day
Come along, be linked to everyone else
You'll be a part of our great big family
We are one, but we all obey the queen

We are the Borg
We are relentless
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
It's the way we're living
And it makes sense to us
To make ourselves a better life by taking yours

Oh, and we won't be stopped
So receive our nanoprobes
Then your lives will have purpose and worth
We'll give you upgrades like better eyes and arms
And soon you will be droning on and on

We are the Borg
We are not Swedish
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
Most our ships are cubic
We don't appreciate
That many other species say that makes us squares

Individuals are very weak and small
But when you join with us you'll soon be standing tall
Well, well, well, well you will realize
Oh, that we are invincible
For we are a Voltron of love (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

We are the Borg
We are communal
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
And we have a motto
"e pluribus unum"
How can you argue with a sentiment like that

We are the Borg
We have attachments
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
If we're low on power
Our alcoves charge us up
You'd think by now we would have made them wireless

We are the Borg
We are adaptive
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
And we take what's useful
From your technology
In hopes that we can finally fix our Keurig 2

We are the Borg
We wear prosthetics
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
You will quickly learn that
Perfection is our goal
And that is why we all are chic and beautiful

We are the Borg
We work together
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
In the Borg collective
We're happy and content
'Cause anyone who isn't gets crushed like a bug

We are the Borg
We're part organic
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
And we all have numbers
Like "six of twenty-one"
Except for babies who get fractions while they grow

We are the Borg
We never hurry
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
And we're moving slowly
'Cause at the central core
Our neural interfaces run on Apple II's

We are the Borg
Give us Locutus
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
You might say we're crazy
But we think it's ok
To hear a bunch of different voices in our heads

We are the Borg
We don't like Janeway
We are the ones who will assimilate all other species
And some say we started
When V'ger did it's thing
But others think that we were made by Elon Musk

Great, but the Borg got their butts kicked by Species 8472! 555!

Criticism is futile

It's not criticism, just a comment and a factual one at that. The Borg were not invincible.

Great one. Now I'm picturing Michael Jackson as a Borg singing this one.
