We've seen several examples of their Queen and she always appears to be of the same species. What species is that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


In VOY: "Dark Frontier", the Borg Queen states that she comes from Species 125, a species that is presumably (given their low numbered designation) one of the earliest species assimilated by the Borg and possibly now extinct:

QUEEN: We all originated from lesser species. I myself came from species one two five, but that's irrelevant now. We are Borg.

The (non-canon) Computer game "Star Trek : Legacy" suggests that the Borg favour this species because "the females...displayed a mental prowess enabling them to sift through thousands of thoughts and bring order to chaos"

    Interesting. Is species 125 known by any name other than the Borg designation? Species 5618: Human, Species 3259: Vulcan, etc. – Morgan Jun 7 '14 at 20:36
  • @morgan - Nope, not that I'm aware of. – Valorum Jun 7 '14 at 20:39
  • I prefer the Star Trek Manga origin - Side Effects... it's rather badass – 22nd Century Fza Jun 8 '14 at 8:57
