An Earth research team uncovers wreckage and drones from the Borg sphere that attempted to stop Zephram Cochrane's warp flight nearly 100 years ago. The Borg regenerate, assimilate the team, modify their transport and flee Earth. Enterprise answers a distress call too late, rescues "survivors," and Phlox is injected with assimilation nanoprobes. Enterprise catches the transport and Archer must determine whether or not to try to salvage the personnel or stop the Borg efforts before they are out of control. Written by

At the end, the Borg sent a subspace message aimed for the delta quadrant and that it would take approximately 200 years for the message to be received. Taking the distance to Borg space (70,000 LY or so based on Voyager), this implies that messages traveling in subspace travel about 350 times the speed of light. In the season 1 TNG episode...Where No Man Has Gone Before...Data says it will take 51 years, 10 months, 9 weeks, 16 days (which is a different way of saying 52 years, 1 week, and 6 days...or 52.038 years) for a subspace message to reach Starfleet, which is approximately 2.7 million LY away. This would calculate messages traveling in subspace as going 51,885.51 times the speed of light. See more
The technology could assert itself at any moment. I don't know what will happen if it does. I underestimated these nanoprobes once. I don't intend to make the same mistake twice.
