Notes

One of the increasing number of Borg vessels known to the Federation which do not conform to the standard cube shape, the yacht was encountered by Voyager in 2375 when Seven of Nine was recaptured by the collective. It is apparently some form of command vessel; the only example encountered was used as a flagship by the Borg queen during the assimilation of Species 10026. The vessel is rather smaller than a Borg cube, and is presumably less well armed and defended. It is known that the yacht has shields and carries at least one tractor beam emitter, and has at least one assimilation chamber on board.

The yacht encountered by Voyager in 2375 was destroyed when Voyager collapsed a transwarp conduit whilst it was inside.3

Comments

First seen in Voyager's "Dark Frontier", we know virtually nothing about the yacht. It seems to be for the personal use of the Borg queen, which makes little sense given the nature of the Borg. But then very little about Voyager's Borg episodes makes sense...

The Borg present me with a special problem these days. My usual procedure is to invent a full set of specs for any Federation vessel, since the Daystrom Institute would certainly know this information. For alien ships I'm content to pepper the specs with unknowns, since the real Institute would not necessarily know this information. With the Borg, we have a rather irritating mixture of the two. On the one hand, the Borg are very alien and very distant from the Federation so we can put unknowns in easily enough. On the other hand, Seven of Nine has a vast store of knowledge on the Borg. Then again, this may be out of date since she left the collective several years ago. Then again, she has been back since then so might have got an update. Or might not. And of course, there's no way to know how much of Seven's information has been sent back to Starfleet, if any.

So basically, there's just no way to know how much the real DITL would know about Borg ships. In this case, I've leaned heavily towards the unknowns.
