If the borg were ever done in a steampunk universe

"Pardon, gentlepersons...a moment of your time? Allow us to introduce ourselves...we are the Borg. No...no relation to the Icelandic singer, I assure you.

If you would be so kind, please lower your shields and surrender your ships into our care...perhaps just past afternoon tea, if that's acceptable. With your kind observance, we will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your enlightened, but yet somewhat...if you'll pardon the expression...'excitable' culture will adapt to service us.

Oh, and for the record, kind gentle sirs...resistance is futile, and we assure you that we are quite capable in this endeavour, so you mightn't go to very much bother with defence preparations and other such nonsensical behaviour. Sincerely, your humble servants--The Borg, Esquire."

I laughed very hard.
