  1. I really liked Species 8472, too. Something like them hadn’t appeared on the show till then (if you disregard the TNG episode with the proto-Moya that bonded with the betazoid man). Having an interest in biotechnology, it was fascinating to see the away team scanning a part of the alien ship and saying something to the effect of: “I’m reading a large concentration of peptide here. This structure behaves similarly to a nervous system. Could be their equivalent of a computer network.”

    The writers put a good amount of thought into this new adversary. As you said, they represent the opposite of the Borg. Rather than seeking perfection through the incorporation of machines, they chose to tweak and retweak their biology. And just like the Borg, they were ruined later on! But more on that in its proper time.
