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

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
