Transwarp Technology

"No wormhole nearby? Make your own!"

This department specializes in the development and study of more efficient ways to generate, maintain and utilize Transwarp Conduits. Although it is a relatively new department, already The Collective has managed to incorporate many of our doctoral candidate's ideas into our newer vessel designs.

	Department Chair:  350 of 396 (Okudas)
	     Vessel ID #:  BV-2000NX
	BORG-NET Address:  350@BV_2000NX.borg.org

Stellar Cartography

"Maps are irrelevant."

This department specializes in the mapping and cartographic publishing of the various sectors within the Delta Quadrant. As more of our vessels venture into other regions of the Galaxy (Alpha, Beta & Gamma Quadrants), more information will be compiled and distributed. It is interesting to note that in our exploration of the Alpha Quadrant, we have encountered several vessels which have significantly mapped regions belonging to such inferior species as the Ferengi, Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians and various members of what is known as the United Federation of Planets. Scout vessels have been dispatched to the Alpha Quadrant to collect more information.

Cybernetic Engineering

"Medical Experimentation? Nah...we call it 'Progress'."

This department specializes in testing new cybernetic implant technologies and the implementation of a positronic neural-net is part of many BORG theses. Begun by "The One" (Stardate 46982.1) on Borg Vessel 18253, its ultimate purpose is to establish a technological background whereby all BORG can become completely artificial life-forms.

	Department Chair:  The One (Lore)
	     Vessel ID #:  BV-18253
	BORG-NET Address:  001@BV_18253.borg.org
			   (No longer active - as of 46983.6)

  Asst. Department Chair:  Crosis
	     Vessel ID #:  BV-18253
	BORG-NET Address:  434@BV_18253.borg.org

Bionics

"We can rebuild him. We have the technology."

This department specializes in the study and testing of how combining cybernetic hardware with biological organisms varies as a function of time, age, gender and species. In the past, many inferior species found assimilation into The Collective both painful and difficult. However, it is hoped that through our study of how bionic-implantation techniques have improved, we can better serve the galaxy's inhabitants by improving their quality of life.

	Department Chair:  Locutus - (retired)
	     Vessel ID #:  NCC-1701-D
	BORG-NET Address:  (No longer connected)

  Asst.	Department Chair:  205 of 42208
	     Vessel ID #:  BV-0007
	BORG-NET Address:  205@BV-0007.borg.org

Materials Science & Engineering

"If you build a better mousetrap..."

This department specializes in the research & development of more durable materials (alloys, polymers, etc), for use in assimilation, propulsion, vessel design, etc. In conjuction with the Subspace Physics Department (not listed here), we play a key role in the development of "cutting-beam" technology.

	Department Chair:  340 of 396 (Sternbach)
	     Vessel ID #:  BV-2000NX
	BORG-NET Address:  340@BV_2000NX.borg.org

Systems Engineering

"Working harder to serve you better."

This department specializes in the study of BORG production networks & processes (transportation of consumables, energy transfer & production, information distribution, etc.) and how their relative efficiency (or lack thereof) effect vessel operation. This department is one of several that are vital to The Collective's ability to function as a whole.

	Department Chair:  891 of 4068
	     Vessel ID #:  BV-5745
	BORG-NET Address:  891@BV-5745.borg.org

The 3rd of 5 (Hugh) Center for Individualist Studies

"E Pluribus Unum!" - "One Among Many!"

You're kidding, right? Oh please, like we really have time to create an entire department for a rogue member and his quaint little delusions. Dang Starfleet contaminants. 8(

	Department Chair:  3rd of 5 (Hugh)
	     Vessel ID #:  SC-2067, BV-18253
	BORG-NET Address:  131@SC_2067.borg.org

Operations Management

"We Bring Order To Chaos"

Our most popular department of late introduces the participant to the many facets of Collective Operation. Communications, Heirarchical Command Structure, even Training of new "assimilatees" is addressed in the course work. Enrollment in this department is a must for anyone planning to specialize in the other aspects of the Collective.

	BORG-NET Address:  001@BV_112296.borg.org
