So I picked this series up- the first Star Trek novels I've read in decades- and am really dissapointed in the evolution of the Borg as portrayed in that series. Regardless of that though, it left me wondering, since I'm a newb to STO really, how much does STO stick to the EU fluff?
I know that the events in Destiny predate the events in STO by a few decades, so the whole Borg invasion that wiped out several worlds, and killed billions, technically already happened in the timeline, but is there any mention of it? I'm just curious, I know the books came out in '08 and the game in '10, so if the Devs were sticking with any of the literary material, it was available to them.
Just curious more than anything... And who else thought they were kind of horrible books? I'm not 100% finished. I have a bit in the last one to go, but man some of the directions they are taking the characters and the Races are just a bit ridiculous.
