Borg Queen's Lament by Inker-guy Borg Queen's Lament by Inker-guy
This piece has been in my mind for some time now. I'm a big trekkie and my particular favorite enemy in Trek has always been the Borg. Love those guys :D

But it got me wondering about the queen. During her conversion to what she becomes does she ever think back to her previous life? Was she an artist who misses the ability to create? A mother who can't hold her children? Lots of questions. So when I did this piece I wanted to capture that moment right before individuality becomes lost.

I used a modeling photo for the queen herself and alot of the original design work from John Eave's designs. Personally the original design of the queen is what we should have gotten It's just so awesomely creepy :D
