Star Trek Borg Walkthrough



    by Richard Lawson

    This walkthru will get you to the ending of Star Trek: Borg in the most

    efficient way possible. However, part of the fun of this game is to try

    the alternate paths. Despite the fact that they end badly for you, it's

    still fun, especially hearing John De Lancie taunt you along the way. A

    lot of the solutions to the puzzles are obtained by going down a path

    that fails - such as the Borg command console code and the hypo spray

    sequence. Q, however, always gives you another chance, and snaps you

    back to a place where you can try again. I encourage you to try

    different things and see where they lead you.

    Okay, long intro, Q appears, and offers you a choice. Grab the phaser.

    Now to the Righteous, where you take over the body of Sprint. Click on

    the phaser; you'll shoot the Borg. More stuff happens, and Ensign

    Targus tries to drag the Borg off the bridge. The Borg revives and

    grabs Targus in one hand and accesses a panel with the other. Fire the

    phaser at the panel the Borg is accessing. This time it's dead.

    Now to isolate the security console. You see four squares in front of

    you. Click on the fourth square (the one on the far right), then the

    third square (this procedure is outlined in the tricorder Q gave you).

    Now to the elevator. This is tricky. The code to computer core control

    is 150619. Click on the "1" and wait for the screen to freeze. Then

    *quickly* click on 5, 0, 6, 1, 9. You only have a short time to do this

    before the puzzle times out and you go to the wrong branch. Oh, and

    going to the wrong branch leads to a fairly humorous encounter with Q.

    After getting to computer core control, you're confronted with an

    unknown Borg device. There are lots of things you can do, but the right

    answer is to do nothing... don't click anywhere, just wait for the scene

    to continue on its own. Now, time to go Borg hunting.

    Your father offers you a choice of hands. Go ahead and choose one -

    you'll always lose, but it leads to some nice scenes where you get

    Borgified while Q stands over you, taunting you. There are a few ways

    to go down this path, all leading to the destruction of the Righteous.

    Eventually Q will put you back where you have to choose one of your

    father's hands.

    The correct answer is to click on your father's chin. You'll knock him

    out. While he's laying on the floor, click on his phaser. Then wait

    until you turn the phaser over and a round button is revealed on the

    bottom of the handle. Click on it. More scenes where your father kills

    the Borg and you acquire its implant.

    You have a few ways to try and access the implant. The correct answer

    is to click on Ensign Targus's neural interface - the round thing on her

    forehead. After putting it on her, you're confronted with a choice of

    what to do once it starts taking over her mind. Simply click on the

    implant. Q will grab your hand and ask you if you're sure. He's just

    trying to throw you off. When you replay the scene, click on the

    implant again. You've just saved Ensign Targus.

    Now, to the Borg ship. There are many, many different paths you can

    take here. They're fun to try. Again, what follows is the quickest way

    to the end - although you miss some fun scenes along the way.

    Okay, here come some Borg - do nothing, just let them pass. Next you

    come to a Borg command console, where you have four large circles along

    the top of the console. Click on the first circle, then the third

    circle twice, then the fourth circle, then the second circle twice.

    (Repeating) The correct sequence is: 1 3 3 4 2 2.

    You've accessed the override code (remember it: 61330). Now you need

    another implant. Here comes a Borg. Wait for Targus to step in front

    of you, then click on her arm. That's right, you need a living Borg.

    Your father hands you a hypo. You'll see three tiny circles along the

    top of the hypo. Click on the first circle, then the third circle

    twice, then the first circle again. (Repeating) The correct sequence is

    1 3 3 1.

    Now, to find a Borg. The first one to come along isn't quite a Borg.

    Do nothing to the Q-Borg (unless you want to scan it with your

    tricorder). Wait for the next Borg to come along. Click on your own

    hand - the one not holding the hypo. You get Borgified.

    Incidentally, my favorite "failed" scene happens when you enter the

    wrong sequence into the hypo spray and then inject yourself.

    Okay, to the end. First, a bit of fun. You get into a conversation

    with your father and Q. A targeting circle appears over Q. Wait for it

    to move below his belt, then click on it. I didn't know a Q had, er,

    that kind of an anatomy.

    Now, for the final puzzle, and this one had me tearing my hair out for

    two days figuring it out. A Borg has accessed Ops, and you have to try

    and stop it. Notice the thick lines along the bottom of the screen. A

    lighted circle will appear and stop at the center of one of those

    lines. Click on it.

    A collection of circular symbols will appear on the screen. Does the

    layout look familiar? Kinda looks like a telephone keypad, eh? In

    fact, it's the Borg equivalent. It's numbered like this:

    1 2 3

    4 5 6

    7 8 9


    Remember the override code? Click on the circles in this sequence: 6 1

    3 3 0. On to the happy ending.

    Again, though, lots of the fun of this games is in trying different

    things. You can get Borgified a dozen different ways, and the ship can

    get blown up lots of different times - it's actually a pretty cool

    sequence. Also, the tricorder Q gave you has lots of information, as

    told by Q. He interjects some dry witticisms. My favorite one is what

    he has to say about Vulcans.

    Hope you enjoyed the game!
