The Borg probe was a type of manned probe starship used by the Borg Collective in the 24th century. The craft had an elongated shape. It was armed with beam weapons that made it an equal match to a Starfleet Intrepid-class starship in terms of firepower. In addition to a crew of Borg drones, the ship was also equipped with robotic auto-regeneration units. The probe had transwarp drive capability with the use of transwarp coils.
In mid-2375, the USS Voyager encountered a Borg probe that had diverted course to intercept and assimilate them. After exchanging fire with the probe, the crew of the Voyager attempted to disable the probe by beaming a photon torpedo aboard, while the probe was remodulating and regenerating its deflector shield matrix. However, the torpedo detonated near the power matrix and destroyed the ship. There were no survivors. Captain Janeway subsequently ordered her crew to conduct a salvage operation on the debris.
