  • The Borg ship had been adrift for five years. If the environmental system had been left on, the dead Borg would have decomposed. The dead Borg were still intact, which means the environmental system was off; however, Tuvok, Torres, and the rest of the away team board the Borg ship without any protective or breathing apparatus.

 

Trivia: 47-reference: when the colonists telepathically contact Chakotay in his shuttle, they tell him to transport to module 47 omega on the Borg cube.

 

"Unhappy with a new treaty, Federation colonists along the Cardassian border have banded together. Calling themselves 'The Maquis' they continue to fight the Cardassians.Some consider them heroes, but to the governments of the Federation and Cardassia, they are outlaws."
