Found with dispatch on an abbreviated version of the typical DDRAMS/NJSQ caching excursion. Our targets, today, were to nab some of the SPACE2081 caches prior to attending the SPACE2081: Series Party And Conclusion Event (http://coord.info/GC67BFV), along with a couple of neato challenge caches. This is the first of our sorties that resulted in a brush up against John Law, Old Bill, the Boys in Blue, the Cops, Rollers, Po-Po, Five-O, the Fuzz. But, that's another log. Here, we made quick work of this most interesting multi. The borg have always been my favorite villains. Certainly, I have been assimilated into the Geocaching Collective. NJSQ had a long conversation about the Borg Queen during our finding of this cache. He expressed a distaste for her. I, on the other hand, extolled her supreme awesomeness!

The Borg Queen was a humanoid female of Species 125. In accordance with the Borg pursuit of perfection, a blending of the organic and synthetic, very little of her original humanoid form remained. Her face and upper torso were organic while the rest of her body, including her skull and spinal cord, were synthetic. Because of her disembodiment she saw herself as the epitome of perfection. The Queen had her own chambers within the Borg Unicomplex from which she could oversee and control the Borg via the command interface. Whether she had her own ship or not is unknown, but she used different Borg vessels to travel, such as a Borg cube, sphere, or diamond. When her physical presence was not necessary her organic part resided above this chamber while her synthetic parts were stored below it, under the floor. If she desired to do so, both could be brought together, and in doing so, created a humanoid form for herself.

The Borg Queen was assimilated to the Collective around the age of 7-8, and was already present in 2354. The Queen defined herself as: "I am the beginning, the end, the one who is many. I am the Borg." Although this suggested she was an individual within the Collective, while addressing Borg drones as "my drones", she was not an individual. The purpose of the Queen was to bring order to chaos.

Which, of course, is our purpose in finding the cache -- one of many.

The cube at the posted coords earns this cache a favorite point.

Thanks for bringing me here.

ddrams and I decided to attend the SPACE2081 event and to celebrate we planned to pick up as many SPACE2081 caches as we could. We usually do full days of caching but family commitments curtailed our time to just an afternoon of fun. Still, we got some quality caches and had a great time.

After getting a softball SPACE2081 cache, we decided to tackel this one. We parked fairly close to the parking coords and made our way over. Luckily, I have found a cache like Stage 1 before so we made quick work of it. Off to face the real borg, I had a sense of what we might face. ddrams began negotiations with the Borg but resistence was futile. I took the opportunity to navigate my shuttle craft into the proper alignment and the Borg were defeated! We gathered our clue from their memory banks and replaced everything as found. Thanks for the multi!

I exited my shuttle at a nearby space park and walked to stage one, prepared to engage the enemy cube that I saw when passing by. Turns out it was just a training model. I was thrown for a loop until my tricorder settled down and when I decided that nothing was going to electrocute me, I had the coords.

At stage 2 I had a glorious battle with the real Borg in bitter winds. In the end I was able to send a message for the Borg to "sleep" and disable their defenses and retrieve the code word and sign the log.

Replaced/reset everything, good to go for next person. Gets a fav for location/items used for Space theme. Most enjoyable.
