First Contact is known for being one of the best Trek movies if not the best Trek movie ever created. I remember when I was only 7 watching it for the first time.....it scared the living hell out of me. I couldn't sleep for a weeks without thinking some Borg was coming in and assimilating me. When I got older I started to realize something....its 90210 in space. Its essentially about a woman being rejected by a man and is out for revenge against him. The Borg Queen was head over heals for Picard during his stint in the Collective during TNG and wanted him as her equal or should I say possibly lover. Seems like Picard has that effect on women even ones as dark and scary as the Queen of Borg. So think about this, once Picard rejected the Queens advances...she wants to hit him where it hurts, and for Picard that's history and space exploration. What better way to take revenge on a man like Picard, destroy the one thing he loves just as much as the Enterprise. I mean you already robbed him of his invulnerability we saw in early TNG, you broke the man, now you break his soul, which she almost did. That is until she banged Data and tried to turn one his best friends against him, the very man who literally broke Picard out of the Borg Cube. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and considering the great lengths of planning it must have taken, the Queen was very angry.
Funny the Borg always talk about perfection and the need to surpass the confines of humanity, when in fact the Queen is far more human then she realizes and that means just as imperfect as those she assimilates.
In my opinion the very antithesis of an SJW Mary Sue movie, yet the Queen is a very strong and likable female character.
