Star Trek: Borg is an interactive full-motion video game set in a first-person viewpoint. You play as a cadet who lost his father in a previous encounter with the Borg. You are given the opportunity to head back in time and change history. Throughout the game you can select from several options, with most leading to bad outcomes, but not requiring you to restart the game.

Choosing Your Mission

After the introduction, you will be given a choice by Q. There are three possible options:

  • Select the phaser
  • Select the luggage (game over)
  • Do nothing repeatedly (game over)

USS Righteous

You will be transported through space and time to arrive on the USS Righteous. After watching the events unfold badly the first time, Q will let you take over the body of Sprint, and you can choose from different items again:

  • Select the phaser
  • Select the scanner (you get to try again)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again)

The Borg will arise and get a hold of Targus:

  • Shoot the panel the Borg is accessing
  • Shoot the Borg (you get to try again)
  • Shoot Targus (you get to try again)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again)

When you are called to the security console, there are 4 modules available:

  • Remove the 4th module, then the 3rd module
  • Select any other modules (you get to try again)

After this you will end up in the elevator:

  • Enter code 150619
  • Enter any other code or do nothing (you get to try again - you will eventually end up at the right place anyway after a number of failed attempts)

Once the Borg device is detected, there are several options to proceed:

  • Do nothing
  • Try to remove the device (you get to try again)
  • Use the tool on the left (game over)
  • Use the tool on the right (game over)

After heading off with Furlong, he will ask you to pick a hand:

  • Punch him in the face
  • Do nothing (you get to try again after a long scene)
  • Choose either hand (you get to try again after a long scene)

While Furlong is on the ground:

  • Examine his phaser, then press the round button when you turn it over
  • Examine his phaser, but don't do anything with it (you get to try again)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again)

When you are examining the Borg implant, you have lots of different options:

  • Select Targus' neural implant
  • Select the tricorder (you get to try again)
  • Select the Borg implant (you get to try again)
  • Select the console (you get to try again)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again)

After attaching the Borg implant, Targus will be in trouble:

  • Remove the Borg implant (you need to do this twice for it to work)
  • Use the phaser (you get to try again)
  • Use the hypospray (you get to try again)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again)

You will be in a pain trance. After you awaken, you will set out with Furlong and Targus.

Borg Cube

You will arrive on the Borg Cube. When 2 Borg are coming down the corridor:

  • Do nothing
  • Shoot the Borg (you get to try again after a long scene)

Once you reach the Borg console, you are presented with 4 circular buttons (with other smaller symbols below). If you number them 1-4 from left to right:

  • Press 1, 3, 3, 4, 2, 2
  • Press any other sequence (you get to try again, from the start of the Borg Cube)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again, from the start of the Borg Cube)

Another Borg will start heading toward you:

  • Wait for Targus to come close, then grab her arm
  • Shoot the Borg (you get to try again after a long scene)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again after a long scene)

After Furlong gives you the hypospray:

  • Press the small silver buttons: left, right, right, left
  • Press any other sequence (you will eventually fail later on)
  • Do nothing (you will eventually fail later on)

A Borg will walk past and you realize that it is Q:

  • Do nothing
  • Use the hypospray on his neck (you get to try again after playing out other scenes)

Another Borg will walk past:

  • Use the hypospray on your hand, having pressed the correct buttons earlier
  • Use the hypospray on your hand, without pressing the correct buttons earlier (you get to try again, from receiving the hypospray)
  • Use the hypospray on his neck (you get to try again, from receiving the hypospray)
  • Do nothing (you get to try again)

USS Righteous

You will end up returning to the USS Righteous. There will now be a scene where Q is making jokes about you and stopping Furlong from talking about his son:

  • Push him in the chest
  • Kick him in the groin
  • Slap him in the face

Finally, you will access a Borg drone:

  • Press the small green circle at the bottom of the screen when it stops in the middle
