Borg Borg Cube

The Borg Cube fills one of the central roles of the Borg Collective. They are well armed battleships with many capabilities such as tractor beams, subsystem targeting and sensor jamming. They usually travel alone, or sometimes accompanied by Probes and/or Spheres.

The Cube is heavily armed and very durable. The best advantage a player has over this vessel is speed. The Cube is slow, like all battleships, so you can usually strike the same shield many times until you have weakened it. Then the Cube is very vulnerable to Quantum or Tricobalt torpedoes. Even the death throes of a Cube can be dangerous; being too close to one when it explodes can severely damage most starships, if not destroy them outright.

Missions encountered[]

The interior of a damaged Borg cube


  • The combination of Tractor Beam, Borg Shield Neutralizer, Boarding Party, Torpedo: High Yield and the large Death Explosion make this ship exceptionally dangerous for a Battleship. As such, many groups prefer to kill them before engaging any accompanying ships like Spheres or Probes, even if they have greater numbers. This makes it one of the few enemies in STO where the "weakest foe first" targeting rule does not apply.
