Species 5618: Human


It is not explicitly stated how these designations were assigned, though it is generally assumed that they were simply incremental, each newly encountered species getting a number one higher than the previous. This mostly holds up when comparing numbers to probable first contact dates or vicinity to Borg space, though some anomalies exist, most notably the Alpha Quadrant species Ferengi having an unusual low number of 180. Numbers appear to have been assigned at first contact, and don't seem to have been reused even after the whole species was assimilated.


In Christie Golden's Seven of Nine novel, several more designations were listed:

  • Species 13: Tuktak
  • Species 407: Lennli
  • Species 1811
  • Species 2822
  • Species 3105: Rhawn
  • Species 4774: Skedan

In Kirsten Beyer's Unworthy novel, four more designations were revealed:

  • Species 433: Greech
  • Species 912: Dulaph
  • Species 1629: Irsk
  • Species 6649: Neyser

In Star Trek: Armada, a Species 9341 was mentioned.

A screensaver that was released featuring pictures of the Star Trek: Voyager crew and Borg screen displays lists three further species:

In Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force, Seven of Nine mentions Species 1567, which was engaged in a long range war. They used automated gunships called dreadnoughts in order to defeat their enemy. One of them was transported to the "Forge" where a mission took place in the game.
