Comic #3482

1 Cybe: Greetings. We are the Cybe. You will be assimilated, if you don't mind.
2 Paris: That's... very polite of you. I expected something a bit more...
3 Iki Piki: Ruthless.
4 Cybe: Oh, no, we assimilated the Ruth last month. They were a very polite species.

As a collective intelligence, or hive mind, the Cybe naturally use the plural first person pronoun, even if only one of them is present.

Oh, and yes, presumably at some point in the past they've assimilated someone who spoke English. This point was never addressed in Star Trek.
