We are one, not single, far different from the rest

We can regenerate from battles in a sort of nest

We can adapt, assimilate, use it for the best;

We live in this galaxy, but in a quadrant, far far away

So can you guess this place I stay? And what I am that I say?

If you're so smart, who was taken away from us and reunited back at their original home?

You are

The Borg, from Star Trek

We are one, not single, far different from the rest

The Borg are a collective entity. Usually, a single Borg drone has no true sense of self.

We can regenerate from battles in a sort of nest

Borg ships are large cubes, which contain repair stations that look like alcoves in a hive. The mechanical parts of Borg can easily be fixed and enhanced after being damaged.

We can adapt, assimilate, use it for the best;

The Borg mission is to assimilate all organic life into their collective.

We live in this galaxy, but in a quadrant, far far away

The Borg originate from somewhere in the Delta quadrant.

So can you guess this place I stay? And what I am that I say?

You are from the Delta quadrant, and are either in the Borg mothership or in a traveling Borg cube. You are Locutus and you speak for the Borg.

If you're so smart, who was taken away from us and reunited back at their original home?

If it's not Locutus (Picard), Data, or Hugh, then you are probably referring to Seven of Nine. She was actively rescued from the Borg by the Federation, and was returned back to her original home in the Alpha Quadrant.

  • $\begingroup$ Nice work, but I had a different answer for "If you're so smart, who was taken away, and sent back home from my people, just to stay?". I'll accept this answer, since that was pretty much extra. $\endgroup$ – IMustBeSomeone Dec 23 '16 at 21:52
  • $\begingroup$ You're still incorrect on the last one. I think you'll get it soon :) $\endgroup$ – IMustBeSomeone Dec 23 '16 at 21:55
  • $\begingroup$ @IMustBeSomeone I modified my answer after your latest edit. $\endgroup$ – MikeQ Dec 23 '16 at 22:34
  • $\begingroup$ You could say it's Hugh, but that's not who I'm looking for. I editing the question once again to make it fairly clear. $\endgroup$ – IMustBeSomeone Dec 23 '16 at 22:40
  • $\begingroup$ @IMustBeSomeone Yes, that is much more specific. Fourth time's the charm. $\endgroup$ – MikeQ Dec 23 '16 at 22:44

You are

the Borg from Star Trek.

We are one, not single, far different from the rest

The Borg is a collective made of many individuals sharing a single consciousness, hence indeed 'We are one" while also "not single". They are the only humanoids portrayed on Star Trek that have this trait, so are different from the rest.

We can regenerate from battles in a sort of nest

We see Borg do this exactly.

We can adapt, assimilate, use it for the best;

The Borg famously assimilate other species, incorporating their best features and distinctiveness into themselves to further improve themselves.

We live in this galaxy, but in a quadrant, far far away

The Borg are from the Delta Quadrant, part of our galaxy but very distant from Earth.

So can you guess this place I stay? And what I am that I say?

Not sure what you're looking for with "this place I stay"; perhaps you're looking for either Delta Quadrant or a Borg Cube. And of course already have said what you are.

If you're so smart, who was taken away, and sent back home from my people, just to stay?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard was captured by the Borg (taken away) and for a time was Locutus, of Borg. He was eventually returned to the Enterprise and deBorgified.
You may also be talking about Hugh, a Borg who was rescued from a crashed ship and taken aboard the Enterprise for a time, forcibly disconnected from the Collective. Eventually, Hugh was returned to his crashed ship and rejoined the Borg.
