do the borg put on their pants one leg at a time, or do they have some kind of efficiency boosting pants applying rig? something about the entire cube moving in sync, but still needing to balance on one leg, seems very cute to me.

re: what if the borg. . .

@ryan My intuition says that if they have "pants" they come in the form of a million small plate components that are more or less permanently applied, but in-demand parts can be salvaged from nonfunctioning units.

However, if the borg felt they needed to wear *jeans*, they would probably stochastically distribute who put left leg on versus who put right leg on as to prevent undue stress on the inertial dampeners from all the borg leaning in the same direction simultaneously.

There would be no high-efficiency pants solution until the second or third time all borg had to put jeans on.

@ryan like Wallace and Gromit's trouser chute?

@KevinMarks during the Battle of Sector 001 the borg reach Sol and travel back in time to 2063, where they could triviallu acquire terrestrial broadcasts of 1993s Wallace and Gromit: the Wrong Trousers.

so it's possible they not only have a trouser chute, but that they got the idea from the source!

@ryan
They don't wear pants. Those are their legs.
