The year is 2391. An abandoned, damaged Borg sphere dated from the Species 8472 War has been found spat out of a wormhole in the middle of nowhere: filled with 3,000 dormant drones in need of a home. While Starfleet wants to know how it got there, its ally, the Liberated Borg Cooperation's Reclamation Project, has the experience and knowledge to help get the six-month investigation (and reclamation) job done. When Starfleet's project lead is master engineer Geordi La Forge, what could go wrong when his Reclamation Project co-manager is Executive Director Hugh: the same xB of Liberated Borg renown?
A mystery in three acts, this story is explores what the Borg Collective's reaped actions could sew throughout the galaxy. It's also an exercise in worldbuilding: what a former Borg (xB) society could be, and what a people created in the celebration of transhumanism might look like. Most of all, Through the Eye of a Needle is a love story about healing through reconnection in unlikely places, exploration of the self, and irrepressible inspiration.
