For those of us who are into Star Trek or at least have a basic familiarity with it, of the available options, who is your favorite enemy/antagonist?
Who would you choose to fight? For me, I'd have to say the Borg. The Klingons are good fighters (and seem like they'd be fun to drink with) and could be useful against the Borg. The Q aren't much for fighting, just antagonizing people. And they'd make the fight against the Borg too easy. The Borg could probably be defeated by our "primitive" metallic rounds, as they don't seem terribly affected by energy-based weapons.

Okay, I know I am late to the party but I love the Trek, so are you ready here it go:
The Borg are the scariest out of the ones you have listed. I could have picked E, I know, but I didn't because of those you listed, I think they are the ones who pose the most clear and present threat (so to speak, you know what I mean). I CRIED when they Borg'd Picard. I was like OH GOD GIVE HIM BACK and then they did and he was Locutus and I. Was. HORRIFIED. Plus they made Picard freak out and he broke his little ships, and for real, f*ck the Borg all day, forever. And it's like you said, they are like zombies only worse- they are zombies with lasers and lasers make everything worse, including and not limited to sharks. They are awful and they are coming AND WE WILL ALL BE ASSIMILATED. But you know, I had *never* thought of just shooting them with regular guns. I bet that WOULD work, I bet it's hard to assimilate hot lead, comin atcha! (Do they have force fields? I thought they had force fields. If they have force fields maybe we could "splode 'em.)
Okay, but if you really want to know who creeped me the righteous f*ck out, hang on because I'm about to kick old school. Remember Plato's Stepchildren and Charlie X? THOSE guys scared me, even when I was a kid. Charlie was the scariest to me, I think- he was a little psychotic child with the rushing hormones of a teenager and the power of thought made manifest. YIKES, amirite? And Plato's Stepchildren... I feel like they were all nuts because they had lived so long and done it all and could do anyting they wanted, and they made Spock cry. Sure they ended up being relatively easy to undo because McCoy found that stuff in their blood and then replicated it and Alexander (the little guy) got all God-like and saved the crew until Kirk caught up. But, you know, what if they had figured out a way to negate that negation and went on a traveling mind-control rampage?1
