I actually figured Lobo would simply grab Wolverine's lunging arm, then smash him against the ground, where Wolverine would explode in a fleshy mess due to the force.



The Death Star would just blow up the Borg Cube with it's plant destroying laser.

Pfft.
More likely Lobo would gut him, like a fish.

Borg Cube would get spanked. Fast.
But they'd get some survivors off into the Death Star, whereupon they'd convert it into the Death Borg Cubtar

If the Death Star doesn't destroy the Borg cube in one shot before any scouts are beamed over, they lose. The whole fight rests solely on that. We all know that the Imperial military lacks the neccessary innovation and resourcefulness to defeat any more than one or two drones. With a station so large, at least a dozen drones would be beamed over.

My original answer was that the Borg Cube was right fucked. There were two situations, however, where I could conceive of the opposite.

1. There are actually two cubes in close proximity and one manages to adapt to the imperial lasers with that thing that masquerades as technology, but obviously isn't, what with its wanton disregard for sensibility or physics.

2. The Borg assimilate some manner of Bothan, and use its information to construct some horrible self-guided, Bothan-cloaked death torpedo of death which promptly exploits the Death Star's weak-point-ex-machina.

That was, however, until I saw this:

And the transporters had actually not occurred to me. There is a good deal of merit to that argument, the Imperials have proven themselves efficient, not creative, in any event that they've proven themselves at all. And borg adaptability being what it is, I would give them doom after their blasters ran out.

However, I'm reasonably sure that, if the cube were destroyed, the borg drones on the station would shut down. I seem to recall that they cannot operate independently of some node on their ship that keeps them connected to the collective, or some manner of deus ex machina like that. However, could the cube circumvent its destruction in some way, then.

There's also the disadvantage that the Death Star has to pivot to bring it's beam to bear on the Borg Cube. If they can approach from the backside, they might have a chance, as the Cube itself is pretty well armed, and the Death Star only only those surface turrets that function only at very close range.

Okay, here's one with a twist.

Punisher vs Batman, not direct combat but a criminal catching/killing contest. Both have an hour to mop up as many thugs as possible. To keep everything even, no allies, and no major villains running interference.

EDIT- Also, Borg Cube wins easily. Wont take long for them to find out about the exhaust port. Then it's a matter of sending kamikazes.

Borg Cube vs Death Star= Death Star victory.
Why?

1 Come from Behind) The Death Star requires one shot to win. even if the Cube "came from behind," as it were it would still take the Borg time to take down the Imperial stormtroopers scattered throughout The DS (Oh my God, did I just say that?)

2 Bothan Spy shizz) Unless the Borg have developed some kind of Starfighter (Which I doubt they have seeing as this is its first encounter with Imperial tech) The Borg Cube would still be obliterated by the (sigh) DS in a matter of seconds. Not to mention the close range turrets intercepting the missle

3 2 Cubes) Oh yeah? Well then... IMPERIAL NAVY FUCK-CLUSTER

I speac god Inglish

The only place I can recall ever seeing Borg fighters is from the PSX(PlayStation1) console video game wherein you have to fight against them with your own little fighter craft.

They were annoying.

Punisher would beat Batman in a villain catching/killing contest simply due to the fact that while Batman can readily defeat any normal thug, the Punisher would walk mass murder them all in order to win the contest. Via grenades and C4 and rocket launchers to the jail cells.

Because he's the Punisher.

Okay, here's one.

Matt Murdock(Daredevil) vs Phoenix Wright in a fight, and then a trial where they must implicate the other person in starting it.

In the Borg Cube vs. Death Star fight, another thing that's being overlooked is tractor beams. Both possess them, but the Borg can adapt to the Empire's beam while the Empire can't do the same. This gives greater merit to the "come from behind" approach.

Still, the war with Species 8472 showed that the Borg are complete suck in dealing with planetkiller weaponry if they don't have time to properly react. However, the Borg's adaptive abilities don't just end at technology. A Borg scanning wave would probably detect the Death Star's primary weapon before the Empire could get a chance to fire it, prompting the cube to adapt strategically to overcome it.

I say the fight goes down like this. Cube comes out of warp, scans the Death Star, notes the weapon, detects that it's about to fire, and accesses its collective memory (which still includes the entire lifetime record of Jean-Luc Picard up to the year 2366). The best strategy would be a quick jump to warp for a split second as the Death Star fires, instantaneously putting the cube behind the DS where it locks on a tractor beam, immobilizing the Imperial battle station and allowing drones to beam aboard and begin assimilation.

Quick and easy.
