This is what Morrison said as a prediction to Moore's response:
 

They’re designed to be told over and over again. If you were an Aboriginal kid or a tribal shaman, that’s what you’d do, you’d participate in the recycling of old stories, the ‘revamping’ of characters and scenarios, the explaining away of plot holes. Some to the job with more skill than others, but if you work with Marvel, DC or other companies’ pulp fiction characters, you’re basically repainting pictures of the ancestors on cave walls.

 
Now I don't know about everyone else, but to me that sounds like the lamest, most piss poor way of saying "I can't really come up with genuinely original ideas anymore so I'm just going to copy someone else's idea."
 
Leave Watchmen alone.

@AtPhantom:   Power fluctuations could really mean anything.  Considering the self repairing nature of Borg Cubes they simply could have been redirecting power from different sections to others to enhance repairs.  After all Data didn't say their power was failing or anything like that, we can only speculate how much damage is implied by "fluctuations."
 
In any event, I still say a dozen drones transported onto a Star Destroyer would quickly lead to Borg run Star Destroyers, and after that all parties involved, Federation included, would soon be having a bad day.

" @AtPhantom said:

"Come on. The Borg are not invincible. First contact showed that if you shovel enough fire power into a cube, it goes down just like any other, and Imperial ships have a lot more dakka than any ST fleet to date. "

To be fair, Picard's link told them where to fire to pull off a win and even then it required the entire fleet (What was left of it) firing at the same spot to destroy the cube.  If the Enterprize E hadn't shown up Earth would have likely been assimilated.  Those Cubes are rediculous capable of function with a crapton of damage. "
All good points.  And even if a cube was taken down First Contact also showed us that it's not as simple as just destroying their ships.  The Borg are highly adaptive and wouldn't have trouble finding a means to get onto Imperial ships, and once that happens it's not hard to imagine what would happen.

@Freefa11: 
Actually Species 8472 are not technologically superior to the Borg.  They're biologically superior, which also includes their ships.  There is no reason to assume the Borg would have any trouble at all assimilating Star Wars tech since it is actually technologically based.  In fact it's quite the opposite since the Borg mostly likely advanced to where they are by assimilating tech from civilizations more advanced then them and then conquering them.  The reason we've never seen them assimilate anyone more advanced is because they've already done it a long time ago.

@Kinasin: 
 Federation vs Empire:
The Federation would have a lot of trouble at first, but you have to remember winning a war is about a hell of a lot more than technology.  Often times it's just as much about politics and the truth is the Empire is politically unstable and weak.  Most of the planets they control would jump at the first chance to join the Federation against the Empire, and if the Empire couldn't defeat the Rebellion on their own they certainly couldn't defeat a rebellion backed by the Federation.
 
Universe vs Universe as a whole:
Even barring the ridiculous argument of all powerful beings it's incredibly hard to call as there are so many unknown factors, but I think as soon as the Borg got their hands on some Star Wars tech things instantly become very bad for the Empire, the Rebellion, and who ever else.

agreed; I Loved season 1 and liked season 2-everything from that point on outright sucked.  The series should have ended after season 1 with Peter and Sylar's deaths-  instant poetry.     "
agreed

I agree with Moore completely.  What DC is trying to do is totally a corporate, money making move and nothing more.  They've made as much money off the Watchmen as they can (as it currently is) and now they want to try and milk it for more.  
 
The Watchmen is one of my all time favorite comics, and while a part of me would love to see a sequel or prequel, in my gut I know the Watchmen story is complete.  Anything more in addition to it would only degrade the integrity of the original story.
 
I think Moore should get props for standing up for his convictions, and not just looking to make money.

If your into tech related stuff "Iron Man: Extremis" is a great story arc.  If your looking for something with a classic superhero feel "All Star Superman" is a good read.  You may also want to consider "Ultimate Spider-Man" not to be confused with "Ultimate Comics Spider-Man."  I would definitely describe it as light and satisfying.
