Emblem of the Borg.

A Borg drone was an assimilated individual within the Borg Collective. Drones originated of numerous species the Borg had assimilated. Upon assimilation a drone would typically lose it's hair a take on a paler grey/green skin complexion.

Overview

When under control of the Collective's hive mind drones would act single minded in their goals and focus on their assigned task above anything else. Anything that they did not consider a threat would be ignored, however once something has been identified as hostile drones would work to assimilate or or otherwise eliminate the threat. (TNG episode: "The Best of Both Worlds")

Not all drones were created to an equal specification and some were designed for a specific task, specialised drones included medical repair drones and tactical Drone. (VOY episode: "Dark Frontier")

Starfleet R & D believed that a group of five Borg drones were enough to produce their own group mind. (TOS novel: The Return)

The Starfleet conspiracy discovered by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D in 2370 stored a Borg drone, and Borg alcove, in it's secret facility on, or near, Earth. (TNG comic: "An Inconvenient Truth")

A Borg drone is an assimilated being within the Borg Collective. These beings are enhanced through the use of Borg technology, connecting them to the hive mind and stripping away any individuality.

Types

There are several types of Borg drone, each with various technology and augmentations depending on their function in the collective, although many do look very similar.

Labor

Labor or "Worker" drones are the most common type of Borg and they perform the majority of the tasks on a vessel or complex, as well as beginning the assimilation process when facing other lifeforms. They are equiped with standard drone enhancements and technologies.

Transport

Transport drones are assigned to move cargo and objects, including life-forms awaiting assimilation from one location to another. They are equiped with standard drone enhancements and technologies.

Maintenance

Maintenance drones are assigned to perform repairs and maintenace on Borg structures or recently assimilated vessels. Aside from standard drone enhancements and technologies, the Maintenance drone also has one mech arm for engineering tasks and increased body armor for work in hostile conditions.

Tactical

Tactical drones are assigned to combat operations, assualts and situations where heavy force is needed to assimilate a resistant species. Aside from standard drone enhancements and technologies, the Tactical drone also has a heavy disruptor mech arm as well as a shoulder armature with beam weapon energy and emitters. This type of drone also employs heavy armour and shielding.

Assimilation

Assimilation drones make up a smaller portion of the Borg population and are assigned for the sole purpose of assimilating other lifeforms into the collective. Usually confined to cyber-conversion chambers, these drones are sometimes dispatched on the field along with Tactical and Transport drones for on-site augmentation. Along with standard drone enhancements and technologies, the Assimilation drone has two, long mech arms with precision tools and needles for their specialised tasks.

Medical

Medical Repair drones are grouped with a single Labor drone (for protection). Their assignment is to repair damaged drones or dismantle them if needed. Medical drones can also heal biological lifeforms in the event they are injured before assimilation. Along with standard drone enhancements and technologies, the Medical drone has a mech arm for healing.

Heavy Tactical

A Heavy Tactical Drone

These Borg, otherwise known as Advanced Borg Drones are a recent development and are used only in very dangerous and challenging tactical assualts. The first batch of these giant drones were developed from what appears to be assimilated Klingon-like species, but with vast muscular enhancements and full body armour. Along with standard drone enhancements and technologies, this type of Borg has an extremely powerful disruptor mech arm which can fire on multiple targets with accuracy as well as a rapid-stream electron wielder, which can painfully disintergrate targets.

Queen

The mysterious and unique Borg Queen drones are the specialised figure-heads of the Borg Collective, possibly the "leaders".
