Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

The Borg cube was the primary starship class of the Borg Collective's fleet. Borg cubes are designed as a combined weapons platform and factory. Their main purpose was for destroying the military capacity of a species and assimilate the survivors into the Collective. Starfleet designated these ships as dreadnoughts. In the first few years after the were first encountered by the Federation, they were also known simply as a "Borg vessel." (Star Trek Encyclopedia, ST:CCG: First Contact, ST roleplay module: Starships, TNG video game: Echoes From the Past)

Overview

Borg Cubes were not constructed as such, but grown, in their own way being a lifeform within the collective. Prior to 2380 no Cube had ever been created outside the Delta Quadrant. Cubes could vary in size, but were typically large vessels; several kilometres in each dimension, up to the size of a small planet in exceptional circumstances. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor)

Features

Like all Borg vessels, Borg Cubes operated in a completely decentralized manner with no bridge or engineering but duplicated systems all over the Cube so that theoretically even if as much as eighty percent of a Cube were destroyed it could continue to operate. In fact, Cubes did not even have a single unified hull but instead feature multiple forcefield projectors which are able to extend and contain the atmosphere in a Cube as necessary. The internal pressure aboard a Borg Cube was two kilopascals above what would be normal on a Federation starship, humidity was an average 92 percent, and temperature was at 39.1° Celsius. (TNG reference: The Collector's Edition #32; TNG movie: First Contact)

A Cube's decentralized systems included extensive weaponry; 36 programmable weapons arrays capable of producing phaser beams and torpedoes, 12 focused neutron beams capable of cutting through starships' hulls and 24 tractor beam emitters. Cubes are also equipped with 240 sensor arrays and a variety of propulsion systems, impulse engines, multiple warp field conduits capable of propelling the Cube in any direction at a cruising speed of warp 8 and top speed of warp 9.99 and multiple transwarp coils allowing the cube to enter and traverse the Borg's transwarp network. Earlier estimates by the Federation hinted at at least warp speeds of 9.9, allowing the vessels to travel 7,000 light years in one calendar year. (TNG reference: The Collector's Edition #32, TNG video game: Echoes From the Past)

The cubes also had an "unknown projection field" which was capable of blocking Starfleet transporters. (TNG video game: Echoes From the Past)

By 2377 the Collective had developed a way to join eight cubes together to form a single large vehicle called a Fusion cube. (TNG video game: Armada II)

Layout

Notable locations within a cube included a primary subprocessing matrix as well as an assimilation chamber. (VOY video game: Elite Force (game))

History

The collective began to use Cubes shortly after its creation and the Cube soon became the symbolic and feared icon of the collective. (ST short story: "The Beginning"; et al.)

In 2367 a single Cube was able to defeat a fleet of 39 Federation starships (TNG episode: "The Best of Both Worlds")

A Borg Cube came through the Bajoran wormhole in 2369. Fortunately, the wormhole was undergoing subspace compression at the time and destroyed the Cube. (DS9 novel: The Siege)

A unusual hybrid starship encountered by the USS Enterprise-D in 2370 included components from a Borg Cube. (TNG comic: "Strategy")

In 2380 remnants of the shattered Collective in the Alpha Quadrant created a massive new Cube, and grew a new Queen to command it on a mission to destroy humanity. This Cube was initially disabled, and the Queen destroyed by the crew of USS Enterprise-E. Unfortunately, the Cube was not as dead as it seemed, struggling for the survival of the collective it developed beyond anything any Cube had achieved before and independently planned to restore the collective. It assimilated Kathryn Janeway and made her its new Queen. It then prepared to attack Earth, absorbing, rather than the less efficient assimilation, anything that got in its way and anything it required. It very nearly succeeded, growing to a huge size and incredible power but was stopped by the efforts of the Enterprise crew and Seven of Nine. (TNG novels: Resistance, Before Dishonor)

Later, in 2381, several cubes launched bliztkrieg attacks into Federation space. This was deemed to be the starting point of the 2381 Borg Invasion. During the invasion, several cubes were destroyed by Federation and Klingon forces using Transphasic Torpedoes. Eventually, however, the Borg were able to adapt to the torpedoes and sent a force of 7000 cubes through the subspace tunnels in the Azure Nebula and into the Alpha Quadrant. Once there, the Borg armada decimated the allied fleet assembled at the nebula, leaving only USS Voyager intact.
