The Cyberleader - he's both ruthless and sadistic. Indeed, although he has emotions of a sort, he has no empathy, not even with his own troops. In fact this is what seperates the Borg from the Cybermen more than anything else. The Collective has a shared consciousness and a shared experience, whereas each Cyberman is a prisoner in his own exo plating.

Hugh on the other hand has an endearing need for friendship and a quite understandable - given the Borg's state of being - terror of lonliness. He also looks quite beautiful. I'd happily go on a date with either of them however.

I think having Borg implants is taking body piercing a bit too far!

By the way, the Borg may be connected to each other, but they apparently have no free will or feelings... so what exactly is it that they're connected to? Just instructions and data and stuff?

Hugh and Seven both refer to hearing the voices of all the other drones and are distressed when they are severed from them. In 'Unimatrix Zero', the Borg Queen tells an unwilling child drone that she can sense the presence of her own assimilated parents. It's never explicitly stated what all those voices are saying, but we do know the Collective assimlates everything from an individual. All the drones must 'hear' whatever is taken from each new addition and given how voracious their expansion is, the flow of fresh information could be ceaseless. It's probable that the downloaded information can be accessed at any time. More tantalisingly, it may simply never stop. To be a Borg drone might be like watching every film in the world simultaneously and on an endless loop, but with new films added every few seconds. Perhaps the Borg are not so much emotionless as obsessively internalized, the voices in their heads giving them - for want of a better word - an autistic relationship with the physical world.

It's likely that the sense of being a part of something so vast as the Collective provides an overwhelming sense of security BTW, even if the connection is not an emotional one. It's also noticable that Seven and Hugh, assimilated as children, struggle with their restored humanity, whereas those assimilated as adults such as Picard throw it off more easily.
