From a blast from a heavy turbolaser.

a blast that can't even destroy a comparable ship at close range even when the shields are down?

revenge of the sith, a new hope, jedi etc.

it takes multiple hits to destory enemy ships, the same metals that can't even stand up to asteroid/starfighter impacts.

1. The armor appears to contain the blast; there are many sources where a turbolaser would hit a target such as a Star Wars skyscraper and the building would burst into flames, such as in a cutscene in KOTOR (the cutscenes are pretty much canon although the gameplay isn't, and that was from a turbolaser thousands of years less advanced than, say, LOTF turbolasers). Remember how tall those buildings were in AOTC? They were HUGE.

2. How do you know that the ships weren't shielded?

the metal is strong enough to contain that kind of energy, but can't survive meteor/statrfighter impacts?

they were shielded when they were hit and destroyed? that just makes it worse.

if you mean during the firefights, in ROTS we saw actual blasts hit cruisers that weren't shielded and they weren't destroyed.

I don't think they've ever been able to not assimilate tech. The only trouble they had was with Species 8472 but that was because of their crazy immune system. Those guys never call in sick.

It only occurred to me just this instant that they were defeated when the Voyager crew created the technological equivalent of AIDS torpedoes.

The Empire's scale might prove the largest challenge for the Borg. In a straight military confrontation with all the Cubes vs all the Star Destroyers the Borg would probably win.

Remember that the Borg are stated to be "thousands of centuries" old. Its more or less assumed they originated within the Milky Way, specifically the Delta Quadrant. Given that it has taken them so long to assimilate only a small portion of the Galaxy (they haven't even completely subjugated their home Quadrant) I think its ludicrous to say they could completely dominate the Empire.

They work slowly for the most part and someone like Palpatine would be able to devise a plan to defeat the Borg before the Empire would get overrun.

The new origin from the books wasn't bad. I wish they'd use that.

It had Jagermeister and Absinthe along with 2 other things which were yellow and green although I can't remember what they were.

Topped with a slice of lime sprinkled with brown sugar and soaked in Absinthe and then set on fire.

Blow out the flame....down the shot....bite the lime....get drunk.
