New Game Term: "Assimilate"
"Assimilate(d)" is a text-saving mechanic (a la "download") rather than a keyword. When a player assimilates a card, they take command of it. Unless otherwise specified an assimilated card's location does not change.

When a player assimilates a personnel or ship, it becomes an affiliation matching one of their headquarters missions (if they command multiple headquarters, they pick one of the eligible affiliations).

When a player assimilates an event, it is moved it to their core.

Example
[Int] Unrelenting
When your opponent plays an interrupt, place your assimilated personnel that they own on their ship to prevent that interrupt. They assimilate that personnel.
Order - Assimilate an opponent's personnel present with your assimilated personnel that he or she owns.
Errata'd Cards
The text of these cards is edited to refer to assimilating/assimilated cards, as appropriate.

The Borg-themed cards might also gain an "Assimilation" keyword, as appropriate.
