With a few exceptions, Borg drones are usually named
X of Y, where X and Y are numbers. But what does that mean? I am especially interested in understanding what the latter part implies.
- Does the "of Y" part always refer to other drones, or to something else (Like: 4 of 6 meaning "4th drone of ship 6")
- How are the drones in the same number pool (Say, the other 8 people sharing the surname "of Nine") "related"? Do they work on the same stuff, or are they also more closely connected? I think I remember a Voyager episode where they were forming some kind of subcollective, but I can't remember if this was the norm or not
- Are these individual designations? Given the sheer amount of borg drones, I would expect names more in the ballpark of "50.312 of 101.2342", yet the names we see all are one-digit integers.
Since I am pretty sure (I might be wrong though) that the naming is not addressed in any of the series or movies, I would also accept explanations from novels or games.
