Default Borg V Daleks

Who would win out of a battle between the Borg and the Daleks from Doctor Who. I think it would be a close fought thing, but the Borg might just have the edge.

If you look at the history of the Cybermen, I think Borg are very similar. Hmmmm...

I'd also have to say the Borg have the edge, unless, that is, the Daleks turn to Davros to come up with a way to defeat them. Then it's all over for the Borg and the universe will tremble with fear every time anyone sees a salt shaker.

The Daleks would win IMO. They have faster ships, better personal shields and time travel. Plus they beat the Time Lords - the most powerful race of any sci-fi universe I've watched/read/listened to.

Have to agree - The Daleks would win plungers down.

Unless they were Classic Who Daleks, and the Borg install stairs in their cubes...

I think it would be a tie. The Daleks aren't stoppable, yet the Borg just adapt to the extermination beam.

But if the Borg assimilated a delek they would gain all of their technology which would give them the edge.

Note on post 3 - the Borg also have time travel

It depends which Daleks you're talking about. They've evolved a lot over the centuries. The current ones are able to stand up to the Time Lords themselves, so they'd definitely give the Borg a run for their money I think.

The latest Daleks also have force fields which are a bit reminiscent of the Borg ones, so assimilating one might be a problem. Aside from that, they're just radioactive blobs inside, so the Borg would probably only be interested in the armor/shell.

It's a good question, really. I can see it ending in a giant stale mate. Or possibly they'd resort to using time as a 'weapon' and pre-emptive strike each other before they'd even risen to power, probably resulting in the mutual destruction of both, much like the Time War in Doctor Who itself.
