My fascination with [BO] has proven a lot more prominent here on forum, than my -- at times equally great! -- love for, e.g., [Kli] and [Fed] .
And certainly, the Borg are more difficult to play.
For the record: recently, this -- finally -- happened (even in a 2e kind-of-way!)... and during that adventure,
I decided that I must create this-here resource/reference chart for myself. Hopefully other people have use for it, too!

*: 14d="Tier-0", highest relative power level within our play group; approximates META -- but without the broken strategies -- of the final Traditional Decipher-state of the game.
**: 24d="Tier-1", less powerful than "T0", due to limited card pool resources -- not all Traditional cards available in abundance in multiples.

Alphabetical list of all (Traditional) [Bor] drones.
(For easy reference of their designation, in conjunction with their respective tasks. :borg: )

It has already been proposed in the past, and as far as I know is already a WIP, to allow for the drone functions to appear in their name, and thus make the deck builder and search engine a bit more non-borg friendly. 8)

[Univ] Eight of Fifteen (antitoxin drone)
[Univ] Eight of Nineteen (assault drone)
[Univ] Eighteen of Nineteen (astrogation drone)

Fifth (Mezoti drone)
First (hostile drone)
[Univ] Five of Eleven (cyber drone)
[Univ] Four of Eleven (guard drone)
Four of Nine (heuristics drone, P'Chan)
[Univ] Nine of Eleven (interlink drone)
[Univ] Nine of Fifteen (isotope drone)
[Univ] Nine of Seventeen (multiplexor drone)
[Univ] Nine of Twelve (network drone)
[Univ] One of Eleven (procurement drone)
Second (Icheb drone)

I always thought it was neat that putting drones in alphabetical order of their name also put them in alphabetical order of their function.

I imagine it's a headache for Design these days though trying to squeeze drones into certain places on the alphabet.

Yes to both.

I personally didn't realize that's how drone naming worked until 2015, which shows how much attention I pay.

I mainly noticed it because I used to sort all personnel of an affiliation by name in my binders, an with all the Borg together in alphabetical order, it pops right out that they're also in another alphabetical order.

If I sorted then like I do now (All of Premiere, all of AU, etc. all the way through Enterprise Collection), it may not have stood out as much.

Complete aside: if folks haven't read "How To" (the new book from the guy who draws xkcd), it is worth checking out. There is an entire chapter that's an interview with Chris Hadfield (Canadian astronaut and test pilot), that is simply the author throwing ever more improbable questions about "could you fly a plan if X" being answered with disturbingly matter of fact answers. :D

Wait, how? Didn't you and Paddy make the Borg in Broken Bow? They follow the scheme faithfully.

(It'd be wild if you just lucked into it somehow. :) )
