Enterprise-E in the Delta Quadrant: Beat up like Voyager?
If it was the Enterprise-E under the command of Picard and they were thrown into the Delta Quadrant, would they beat up like Voyager or would the fare better. Take into account the Enterprise-E was designed with fighting the Borg and Dominion in mind.

Picard experienced his "crisis" and got over it in Contact. That was pretty much his only "real" weakness: The Borg.
Also, the Enterprise E is more advanced than Voyager. It was launched in 2372 and Voyager launched in 2371. Enterprise E was the most advanced federation star-ship when it was launched which means, by default, it was more advanced than Voyager.
On top of that, by Nemesis, Enterprise E had be retro-fitted not once but twice: once before the events in Insurrection and once before the events in Nemesis.
True but im sure Voyager fans could argue that Voyager also had a few considerable upgrades in the Delta Quadrant including some borg technology integrated into the ship, so the ship with better technology could be argued.
But either way my point was in a combat situation Voyager was far behind the Enterprise E. Voyager never was a battle ship. In fact even the Enterprise -D was far more heavily armed than Voyager.
Unless of course you count the last episode with Voyager's ablative hull armour from the future, in which case Voyager would probably tromp over the whole of starfleet Lol
Just referring to the launch dates relative to the thread.
I was also pointing out that the ship was upgraded twice since it was created. So do we use the launch version or the "current" version? If we use the current version, it is MUCH larger and has far more weaponry than Voyager when Voyager first started.
If we use the absolute most upgraded version of voyager then Voyager has that uber ablative hull plating that could take a beat down, with ease, from multiple borg cubes.
Indeed. That version of voyager could one shot multiple Borg Cubes. It has been so long that I don't remember them adapting to weapons. Did they adapt?
But, yeah, basically, that version could probably take on multiple federation ships, at once.
They adapted to the futuristic cloaking device and ablative generator armour within a very short period of time.
They were also one-shotted by quantum torpedoes but adapted quickly which then rendered them useless...Photon torpedoes did extensive damage to a cube during the 1st encounter with the Borg but mere hours later they had absolutely no effect whatsoever.
Stands to reason they would adapt to transphasic weapons...The only reason we never saw this happen is because they were only used in the very last episode of Voyager towards the end.
I was being a smartass. I could have sworn the cube adpated to them or one of the commanding officers on the bridge said "two shots" or something. Then, they all focused on that "weak spot" and blowded it up.
You know, I may be thinking of the Voyager episode "scorpion".
Nah in First Contact all the Starfleet ship weapons were clearly having an affect on the Borg ship.. That inlcudes the Photons and the Quantums.
Federation were a lot tougher at this point than they were at the time of the First borg attack.
They now had Defiant and Soverign class war vessels for front line defence.. Galaxy class upgraded to War Galaxy.. Plus Akira class defence vessels. Plus I think all Starfleet Starships were upgraded to some degree.
