If any ship is boarded by the Borg, initiate self-destruct protocols and head to escape pods! Hold them back as far as you can!

All ships, volley 4!

(They’re just going to keep shooting, you know)

Dude, I’m Janeway. I have to self-destruct at some point.

Anyhoo…

Fire torpedoes 1 and 2 now!

Oh, great, the Scientologists came to fight.

How do those 21st-century retrofits still work? I thought they were obsolete by the time they mass-produced the NX-class.

Well, actually, Captain-

Rotate phaser frequencies and fire at will. Arm torpedo bays 1 and 2.

Mr Paris, engage a flyby maneuver. Fire all torpedos when the cube is in their firing arc.

Captain, there’s a spatial anomaly 5 km starboard. I’m getting life signs from inside – one human, one unknown. Should I attempt to hail?

Hail them, Ensign.

Unknown vessel, this is the Federation starship Voyager. You are in a high-risk area. Identify yourself.

Doctor… you are currently positioned a few km from a subspace multiverse tear which has connected several alternate universes to this one. The Borg, a semi-cybernetic race from this reality, is trying to access it in order to infect the other universes. We have assembled fleets from several universes, but the Borg are still gaining ground. Your ship appears to be… rather small, Doctor. Do you have any weaponry at your disposal?

Thank you, Doctor. We don’t have much time.

…Oh, and Doctor… you may want to know that before the fleet was assembled, a ship identifying itself as Dalek came through your tear. Should we be aware of anything?

Come in, Voyager. This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-E.

We have received several distress signals from your area, in addition to the enormous disturbance created by the presence of the Borg, and we have alerted Starfleet Command. Several ships are on their way here to provide additional assistance. In the meantime, we’ll have to make due with what we have. We are awaiting orders.

It’s time to end this, once and for all. Let’s blow these robotic bastards back to the bloody stone ages.

We’ve got Caldari and Minmitar fleets in a temporary alliance, Federation, The Normandy battleships commanded by Shepherd and his crew, C.A.T.S., Dogfort, Undead, Imperial Star Destroyers, Spiderman, The Grotan Collective, Touhou, a bunch of Mexicans, a male hypnotist with a god complex that looks like a woman and may possible be homosexual, Alchemists, Vogons (useless), robotics russians, germans, australians, texans, frenchmen, and New Yorkians, as well as android flame thrower robots, also with bombs on legs, Diamond Sword and Blood Eagle pathfinders, Star Fox and his wingmen, Jebediah Kerman, Xenu, The Imperial Guard (not affiliated with the Imperial Star Destroyers), Religious fanatics…

and now time lords.

And we’re all fighting the Borg.

Understood Enterprise. We received a transmission from Command earlier, but were not aware you were a part of the taskforce.

I know this is a difficult subject for you, Captain, but it’s good to have Locutus on our side this time.

Be aware that we have encountered several alternate reality fleets that are helping us defend the tear. A humanoid of unknown race identifying himself as the Doctor is attempting to close the tear, but he is unarmed. We need to defend him at all costs; I think he may be the only one who can possibly fix this.

Doctor: …Hold on. Did you just say Dalek? …Well, that’s bad news. They may go after your opponents, but they’ll go after you afterwards. Any alliances they make are only temporary, and in the interest of self-survival. They are my worst and deadliest enemies, and they must be destroyed!

Understood, Captain Janeway. We will defend this “Doctor” with our lives. The lines have been drawn.

And I believe I should have you know that Locutus of Borg was annihilated years ago. I am, and always shall be, Jean-Luc Picard of Earth. I’ll take that to their monstrous queen when I see her in Hell.

Mr. LeForge! Divert all additional energy to the shields! We must hold this position as long as possible!

Aye, Captain, I’ll give all this ship’s got!

No, Doctor. You don’t understand. The Borg got to them before we could warn them. they were immediately boarded and assimilated. Any technological superiority they may have held is now known by the Borg. Is there anything we need to know about?

Captain, are you sure this Doctor knows what he’s doing?! Has he ever even faced the Borg? My ship is going to be destroyed defending him! I must know his plan!

Captain, like I said, these are all ships from alternate universes. Until Starfleet arrives, we are the only ones with combat experience against them.

As for the rest of your question, something tells me that this Doctor is more useful than he lets on.

Doctor: So, these Borg creatures… are you saying they defeated the Daleks? and acquired their technology? That is abd news – Dalekanium is resistant to most firearms, and Daleks are typically shielded. The best thing to do is to go for the eyestalk, to blind them.

I’ll take your word for it. As long as he can engineer a solution quickly, I’ll be satisfied.

That’s not going to do us any good, Doctor. the Borg will simply adapt it to their humanoid drones. Is there any other weakness? Energy weapons? Gravitons?

I’m transmitting frequencies for the Enterprise, commanded by Captain Picard. He has experience with the Borg and his ship has extensive scientific capabilities. He wants to see how he can help you.

Doctor: Energy weapons will have some chance of getting through Dalek shields, yes. The more powerful, the better. Energy weapons will not have problems with Dalekanium from my experience, so I fail to see how this “adaptation” would help much.

Diamond Sword Pathfinder: Just know that once this is over, the conflict will resume. [mutters “butcher” quietly]

All ships of the fleet: if you have energy-based weapons, concentrate fire with them.

Any ships without energy weapons: Contact Enterprise and Voyager, we will attempt to attach some makeshift phaser weapons. We are contacting Command now to have them bring more.

Go ahead, it’s worth a chance. All ships, be aware: a planet killer is being fired. Encrypted firing arc schematics are being transmitted.

We’ll all fire in unison. That should take a huge hit on the Cube. Everyone has to aim their fire on the exact same spot for this to work.
