Two questions occur right away. First, it's only coop if you as the Borg player aren't really trying to win. Otherwise, you're just getting ready to beat up some new players. So are you playing as DM or are you actually playing to win?

Second, Janeway with Voyager? That's not just sub-optimal, that's horrible. Both the ship and the captain generate Aux's on a ship that can't maneuver terribly well.

Also sounds a little complicated. A beginner will be trying to divide his attention to the very complex scenario and the game. Of course people are different. If you have the right group they'll probably have fun but use another captain than Janeway or give her a different ship.

Swap the Bio Neral Circuitry and replace it with Chekov (3pt, white moves remove auxillary) and Disobey Orders (2pt elite talent) for a bit more fun.

My 50pt Voyager for fun premade games runs those and Transphasic Torpedoes and it gives the player a ton of flexibility and options for very little cards.
