resistance is futile by zilla774 resistance is futile by zilla774
Of all the obvious subjects for a zilla style makeover, lets face it, the Borg have got to be way up that list.

I'm not a huge Star Trek fan really, but I do love the Borg. They are the best thing to come out of that Universe for sure... apart from KHAAAAANNNNN!!!! obviously ;)

There's not much that you need to do to the borg to get them really working well, because it's such a great look to start with. But I figured that if it was me, I'd grunge it up, give them the whole rotted zombie look and that would really help add to the mix. So as if the Borg aren't evil enough, I've made them MOAR evil.

I wasn't going to leave the smile on the left borg, but I kinda like how creepy it is, so it stayed.

More eviller Borg??? How the hell does that work?
This is actually the second star trek thing I've come across today, so I feel rather geeky for getting all giddy, but man, this deserves it.
Awesome pic, I love the way you did this, they really do look much more evil. <3

you know i like your style cause its very similar to mine (no offense), but i think you are focusing too much on the heads and portraits. So mostly your backgrounds are single color things.
I believe if you focus on a detailed background (which I believe that you can make a really good job) I think your works will have a new level.
Still good work.

... What Tribbles do not count as one of the best things to come out of Star Trek.

anywho I do so love your version of the Borg, the way the mechanical bits look like they're growing out of the skin. *Thumbs Up*

Yep I agree. Very interesting and creepy take. You're getting a :+fav: from another Trekker here! :)

One suggestion: A nice red laser sensor type thing would liven it up even more! :D

The borg are awesome....but I love this picture because the creepiness of the smile makes this picture hot in a really odd way.

The Borg is awesome! Definitely my favorite "bad Guy" in any of the Star Treks.
