2153 Edit

Human/Tarkalean drones Edit

These Borg drones were assimilated in 2153 by two Borg drones from the 24th century which traveled back in time where their sphere was destroyed in Earth orbit. They were Human members of the Arctic Archaeology Team and Tarkaleans from a Tarkalean freighter.

Some drones were aboard the assimilated and upgraded transport Arctic One where the away team of Enterprise NX-01, Captain Jonathan Archer and Lieutenant Malcolm Reed, fought against them to place charges in their warp engine. Four other drones boarded Enterprise where they met a security detachment in a corridor. They transported back aboard Arctic One shortly before the transport was destroyed by Enterprise. (ENT: "Regeneration")

As always, only a handful of stuntmen and actors were used to portray the Borg in this episode. They appeared multiple times as "different" drones.


2356 Edit

Raven attackers Edit

These two Borg drones assimilated Erin, Magnus, and Annika Hansen in 2356 aboard the USS Raven.

In 2374, Seven of Nine experienced a flashback reminding her of this situation and the assimilation while aboard the crash-landed wreckage of the Raven on a moon in B'omar space in the Delta Quadrant. (VOY: "The Raven")

The two background actors filmed their scenes on Monday 28 July 1997 on Paramount Stage 16 and are listed as "Clean Borg A" and "Clean Borg B" on the call sheet.

2365 Edit

Male drone 1 Edit

Borg drone 1 2365

A Borg drone

This Borg drone was the first drone seen by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D. He transported directly into main engineering and studied the computer graphics.

Lieutenant Geordi La Forge called for the security and Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Worf joined them in main engineering. The drone did not react when Picard tried to make contact and was damaged by Worf when it tried to deactivate the ship's energy systems.

The second Borg drone which appeared when this drone was damaged took several pieces of technology from it and then the drone disappeared. (TNG: "Q Who")

This Borg was played by stunt actor Tim Trella who received no credit for his appearance.
It was the first Borg drone ever seen on Star Trek.
In the Star Trek Customizable Card Game, this drone was identified as an "observation drone".


Male drone 2 Edit

Borg drone 2 2365

A Borg drone

This Borg drone was the second Borg ever encountered by the crew of the Enterprise-D.

Worf tried to damage this drone, too, but was unable because of the shieldings the Borg activated. He transported aboard the ship when Lieutenant Worf damaged the first drone. After finishing the adjustments and collecting information he took pieces of technology from the first drone and transported back aboard the Borg cube. (TNG: "Q Who")

This Borg was played by stuntman David Fisher.
It is the second drone ever seen on Star Trek.
In the Star Trek Customizable Card Game, this drone was identified as a "reinforcement drone".


Drones Edit

These seven Borg drones, included one who was female before she was assimilated. They were the first drones the away team of the USS Enterprise-D encountered on a Borg cube in 2365.

Commander Riker was confounded that these drones did not react when the away team beamed on board the Borg cube. (TNG: "Q Who")

This Borg was played by background actress Mary Donatelli who received no credit for this appearance. She was one of the few female drones seen.
All six male drones were played by unknown actors.
The drones seen on the interior shots of the Borg cube were part of the matte painting.


Infant drone Edit

Borg Infant 2365

A Borg infant

This Borg infant was discovered by William T. Riker in what appeared to him to be a nursery. Riker described his interpretation of the Borg assimilation process, based on his observations of the infant, as: "from the looks of it the Borg are born as biological lifeform. Almost immediately after birth they begin getting artificial implants. They have apparently developed the technology to link artificial intelligence directly into a humanoid brain." (TNG: "Q Who")

This infant was portrayed by Sam Klatman, son of Carol Eisner, who received no credit for this appearance.


2368 Edit

Sphere drone Edit

Jonathan Breck, Survival Instinct

A dying Borg

This Borg drone was fatally injured following the crash of a Borg sphere on Planet 1865-Alpha in 2368. Seven of Nine wanted to help it, but it died in front of her. (VOY: "Survival Instinct")

This Borg was played by Jonathan Breck.


Scout ship drones 1 Edit

Four Borg corpses were found dead after a Borg scout ship crashed inside the Argolis Cluster in 2368, where it was discovered by personnel from the USS Enterprise. The lone surviving drone, Hugh, was rescued by the away team. They were later dismantled by two other drones. (TNG: "I Borg")

The Borg corpses were portrayed by background performers who received no credit for their appearance.
Even though no designations were put with these drones, they are obviously First of Five, Second of Five, Fourth of Five, and Fifth of Five, based solely on the fact that Hugh's name in the collective was Third of Five.


Scout ship drones 2 Edit

These two Borg drones from a Borg scout ship linked with Hugh who was the lone survivor of a crash of another scout ship, after he was beamed to the site of the crash by the Enterprise-D who had originally rescued him. They dismantled the dead drones and beamed back on their ship. (TNG: "I Borg")

The two Borg drones were played background performers who received no credit for their appearance.
The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives the first Borg's name as Six of Thirteen.


2369/70 Edit

Diversion drone Edit

Diverting Borg drone

A Borg drone

This Borg drone transported alongside Crosis on board the Enterprise-D to divert the crew and let the Borg ship escape through the transwarp conduit. It was damaged and killed by Lieutenant Worf, after it killed Crewman Franklin. (TNG: "Descent")

This Borg drone was played by stunt coordinator Dennis Madalone who received no credit for his performance.


Lore's experiments Edit

These two crippled Borg drones were victims of Lore's experiments in 2369. They were among the Borg who followed Hugh and remained in their hiding place, in the tunnel system under the Borg compound. Lore's experiments caused major brain damages. (TNG: "Descent, Part II")

Both Borg were played by background performers who received no credit for their appearance.
These two "crippled Borg" were described in the script as "They are horribly twisted and misshapen, as if by nerve damage. One is constantly wracked by small tremors; the other has only one arm."
Craig Reed, who played the male drone, is in fact, a real life amputee.


Lore's followers Edit

These Borg drones were among the rogue Borg drones led by Lore in 2369. They've settled on an unnamed planet in a Borg compound and were influenced by Lore who tried to built a "new race" and supported them after their disconnection from the Borg mind. A few of them were not satisfied with Lore's decisions and joined an underground group, led by the well known Borg Hugh. When Captain Picard, Deanna Troi, and Geordi La Forge were held prisoners by Lore's Borg, Commander Riker and Lieutenant Worf got help from Hugh's group and rescued their crewmembers. After the brawl in the Borg compound, Data deactivated Lore and the Borg followed Hugh. (TNG: "Descent", "Descent, Part II")

All Borg were played by background performers who received no credit for their appearance.
According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion only eleven background performers were used (limited by the available wardrobe) in "Descent". Although many Borg appear on screen in the final scenes, they were multiplied using split-screen overlays and blue screen shots. The eleven performers are J. Aldrin, Pam Blackwell, Steven Boz, Carl David Burks, Debra Dilley, Gary Hunter, H. McLaughlin, M. Rotter, Adrian Tafoya, Mary Thompson, and Rogan Wilde.
Several Borg costumes were sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay, including the costumes of Rogan Wilde [1], Adrian Tafoya [2], and an unknown actor [3].

Borg body pile as constructed by Dan Curry
In the "Red Alert: Amazing Visual Effects" special feature on disc 7 of the VOY Season 3 DVD release, effects supervisor Dan Curry revealed that the Borg body pile was actually constructed out of several Borg action figures he acquired from the CBS Consumer Products licensing department. He cut up the toys with a Dremel tool and constructed them into the pile. Curry complimented the sculptor of the toys for his accuracy, since he was able to have close-up shots of the faces taken, without having to modify them.


Species 8472 casualties Edit

These damaged Borg drones were encountered by the crew of the USS Voyager in a debris field of fifteen Borg cubes after they were destroyed by a Species 8472 bio-ship. They were all damaged following the contact with the alien and tried to repair the damage and another Borg was trying to assimilate a bio-ship, plunging in its assimilation tubules, to no effect. Two of the drones were killed by a member of Species 8472 shortly before Harry Kim was attacked, too. (VOY: "Scorpion")

2373/74 Edit

7 of 9's associates Edit

In 2373, a number of Borg drones were encountered by the crew of the Voyager during the Borg battle with Species 8472.

After Captain Kathryn Janeway formed an alliance with the Borg to defeat Species 8472, she and Tuvok were led by two Borg drones to the center of the cube, where the drones attempted to fit them with neural transceivers. Due to Janeway's threat to end the alliance immediatly, the neural tranceivers were removed and one drone was attempted to speak for the collective, Seven of Nine.

The Borg cube on which they traveled came under attack by a Species 8472 bio-ship and was destroyed while protecting the Voyager but not before Seven of Nine and six other drones were beamed into cargo bay 2 aboard the Voyager.

When the drones tried to take over the ship, they were blown out into space at order of Commander Chakotay. Seven of Nine was not harmed as she was working in a Jefferies tube to gain control over Deflector Control to open a quantum singularity into fluidic space. (VOY: "Scorpion", "Scorpion, Part II")

The first four actors filmed their scenes between Tuesday 3 June 1997 and Thursday 5 June 1997 on Paramount Stage 9 and 16 while the other two actors only worked on Thursday 5 June 1997 on Paramount Stage 16, the cargo bay 2 set.
The call sheets also feature the note for the set dressing, "Borg Dummies". To fill in the background, prop mannequins were placed in the Borg alcoves. They were previously used in Star Trek: First Contact and were later sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [4] [5]


2375 Edit

Borg sphere drones Edit

These two Borg drones tried to stop One when it beamed aboard their Borg sphere. They were deactivated by One's multi-spatial force field and destroyed when One navigated the sphere into a proto-nebula. (VOY: "Drone")


Borg probe drones Edit

These Borg drones manned a Borg probe the USS Voyager encountered in 2375. The drones died when a modified photon torpedo detonated near the power core. (VOY: "Dark Frontier")

These drones were played by background performers who received no credit for their appearance.


Operation Fort Knox drones Edit

These Borg drones worked on the Borg sphere the Voyager chose as target for their operation Fort Knox in 2375. Like in their simulation Captain Janeway, Tuvok, Harry Kim, and Seven of Nine experienced the same situation until Seven decided to stay aboard the Sphere and rejoin the Collective. (VOY: "Dark Frontier")

All Borg drones were played by background and stunt performers who received no credit for their appearance.


2376/77 Edit

Borg Queen's drones Edit

These two Borg drones assisted the Borg Queen in Unimatrix 01 in 2376/77. They've guarded Four of Twelve and later dismantled him to extract his cortical array. They were also present and guarded the Queen when an errant drone tried to attack her and while a hologram of Captain Janeway was projected. (VOY: "Unimatrix Zero", "Unimatrix Zero, Part II")

Both drones were played by regular background actors who received no credit for their appearance.


Invading drones Edit

These Borg drones were sent into Unimatrix Zero by the Borg Queen to re-assimilate all drones who shared individuality in this place. The inhabitants of Unimatrix Zero tried to resist them and fought against them with traps and weapons such as the Klingon bat'leth. Captain Kathryn Janeway herself defeated a drone by attacking it. (VOY: "Unimatrix Zero", "Unimatrix Zero, Part II")

These drones were played by stunt performers and background actors who received no credit for their appearance.

This Borg was played by an unknown actor.


Junior's drones Edit

These three Borg drones beamed aboard the bridge of the Voyager after the shields failed. Because of Q's tediousness he created this scenario. One of the drones was shot by Tuvok, the second one attacked Captain Janeway and the third one tried to assimilate Commander Chakotay. They were stopped and transported away by Q, who was angry about his son's behavior and told him not to provoke the Borg. (VOY: "Q2")

All three background performers received no credit for their appearance.


2378 Edit

Borg Queen's guards Edit

Three Borg, Endgame

Three Borg drones

These three Borg drones guarded the Borg Queen in 2378 at Unimatrix 01 in the Delta Quadrant. They were present when Admiral Kathryn Janeway was transported aboard the complex and they died like the Borg Queen because of a virus Admiral Janeway infected the Borg Queen with. (VOY: "Endgame")

These three drones were played by unknown performers.
According to the IMDb, Craig Appel portrayed one of these drones. This has yet to be verified.


Voice of the Borg Edit

The voice of the Borg was the collective voice of a Borg cube or Borg sphere which represented the Borg and their claims.

In 2153, the voice from aboard the assimilated transport Arctic One informed the crew of Enterprise NX-01 that "You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile." (ENT: "Regeneration")

In 2365, the voice of the Borg informed the Enterprise-D, under Captain Jean-Luc Picard, that they had analyzed the ship's defensive capabilities as being "unable to withstand us" and that any attempt at self-defense would be "punished." (TNG: "Q Who")

A year later, the voice of the Borg spoke to Picard and ordered him to transport aboard their ship. Later, before his assimilation into the Collective, Picard argued with the voice of the Borg on behalf of humanity, but was told that his arguments were "irrelevant." (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds")

The voice of the Borg addressed Starfleet's defense force in the Typhon sector prior to their time-travel incursion in 2373. (Star Trek: First Contact)

While attempting to assimilate Species 8472 in late 2373, the voice of the Borg was cut off by the aliens' retaliatory fire, resulting in the destruction of two Borg cubes. (VOY: "Scorpion")

Another voice of the Borg later informed the USS Voyager that the crew and ship will be assimilated. It further negotiated with Captain Janeway on forming an alliance against Species 8472. (VOY: "Scorpion")

The voice of the Borg also negotiated with Janeway and Tuvok again when Janeway threatened to terminate the alliance because of the neural transceivers she and Tuvok should connect to the Collective. The voice later informed Seven of Nine and the other drones aboard Voyager that the war against Species 8472 would end in defeat and ordered the drones to take over Voyager's deflector. (VOY: "Scorpion, Part II")

The voice of the Borg also spoke to Seven of Nine in her flashbacks and hallucinations in 2374 regarding her own assimilation. (VOY: "The Raven")

When Arturis landed in the Borg region after he used his quantum slipstream drive and Captain Kathryn Janeway and Seven of Nine were beamed aboard the Voyager, several Borg cubes welcomed him. The Borg voice informed him that he would be assimilated. (VOY: "Hope and Fear")

In 2378, the voice of the Borg informed the Borg Queen about the intruding USS Voyager into the nebula, where a Borg transwarp hub was situated. (VOY: "Endgame")

The voice of the Borg was a computer-synchronized voice stream, made up from several voices.
The voice heard in "Q Who" was composed from the voices of Maurice Hurley, Rob Bowman, and Bowman's assistant. In the other episodes, it was provided by unknown performers.
The voice heard in Star Trek: First Contact was provided by actor Jeff Coopwood.
