** Also, the use of physical force required to make these work against the Borg are is considerate. Worf is able to make it work with his sword and an improvised club, and one of those is in the vacuum of space with no air resistance, and only that with considerable effort, and has is an expert in close-quarters combat. Data makes it work because he is physically faster and stronger than the Borg, and even he is overwhelmed. Most Starfleet officers don't have Worf's training or discipline or Data's strength/speed, and even then, the Borg are heavily armored. In fact several crewmen are shown trying to copy Worf and are quickly overwhelmed.

** The first reason being the shear number of Borg in any given area. Even if a group of officers could huddle while staging an attack, we've seen it only takes a pin prick to begin assimilation. The second reason in relation to using a polearm, those are claustrophobically narrow hallways with all the Borg tech being superimposed on the walls. Good luck trying to swing a Borg cat around. What's more, one would hardly want to speculate the possibility of Borg simply adapting to melee combat and what that would entail.

** Also the fact that this would make it the ''third'' ship lost under Picard's command. Given the circumstances, it likely wouldn't be held against him, but even so. Third time is the charm.

*** Confirmed. We see several times on DS9 that Worf keeps his Mek'leth in his baldric at all times when on away missions, or if combat is expected.

* In the trailer, Data recites the Borg catchphrase, "Resisitance is futile," but [[ItsPronouncedTroPay places the emphasis on the first syllable of "futile."]] Not only did this hint to the audience that [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil Data didn't join the collective,]] it's a MeaningfulEcho of when Polaski mispronounced Data's name in a similar fashion on the show. Data didn't simply mock the Borg, he emphasized that they were never compatible.

*** According to the novel ''Rogue'', the ''Enterprise'' lost nearly two hundred--one-quarter of her crew. Including those who were assimilated and then died with the queen.

* Speaking of Replicators and physical weapons being more difficult for the Borg to adapt to, why not replicate polearms - a ranged, physical weapon that's easy to use with limited training - and use those to fight the Borg?

*** Or, you know, it could actually be sequestered in his baldric sash (only moving it to his spacesuit during the spacewalk scene since melee combat was expected). The premiere episode of ''StarTrekEnterprise'' has the Klingon who crash-lands on Earth withdraw a blade from his sash. Klingons being the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race]] of the franchise, it's quite plausible.
