This seems like a perfect opportunity for me to cross-post my summary of the amazing "Hive" comic that's included in that Bundle from the Dumbest Moments in Comics thread.
It's the 29th Century, The Borg have assimilated the entire galaxy, with the last remnants of resistance having been wiped out a century earlier. Locutus, sitting on his floating throne, has realised that it's all actually a bit shit really so decides to do something about it, so he flies off (Oh yeah, Locutus can fly now) to a room where he's rebuilt Data in order to put things right.
Meanwhile in the 24th Century Picard is busy boning Vash when he realises The Borg are coming back, so he heads back to the Enterprise and off to Starfleet, where a damaged Borg armada appears and asks for help to defeat a new enemy from another dimension that the Borg cannot defeat or assimilate and that isn't Species 8472.
Turns out Seven of Nine went back to the Borg as a spy and let herself get re-assimilated but with an implant in her brain to keep her individuality, and now she's back on the Enterprise to help out.
Meanwhile, back in the future, Locutus and Borg Data are off to kill the Borg Queen, but first they have to get through Seven of Nine who is now the Scorpion King, presumably because she defeated The Rock in an episode of Voyager,
Fortunately they're able to beat her when Locutus rips one of her legs off while Data just strangles her to death.
Meanwhile, back in the present, to everyone's surprise the whole thing was a Borg trap and they actually created the alien race as a trap. At this point Seven of Nine sprouts spider legs from her sides,
Meanwhile, in the future Data and Locutus encounter the Queen in her new Bikini power armour,
Fortunately Locutus and Data can create Iron Man suits from the walls for themselves using their Magneto powers,
So after a battle, the Queen rips Locutus in half, Data stabs her, then Locutus rips her head off to send Borg Data back in time.
So the crew take the Enterprise into the Borg Armada, beam aboard the Queen's ship and Picard lets the Queen try to re-assimilate him. Fortunately Seven of Nine is now naked and living inside of Picard's head and protects him, causing the Queen to overload.
Seven then transports as many Borg survivors as she can to the Enterprise before the whole thing explodes and Seven dies back aboard the Enterprise.
To thank her for her efforts the Borg she rescued are given a colony of their own with possibly the shittest holographic statue of Seven of Nine that could anyone could possibly make,
You will be shocked to learn that it was written by Brannon Braga.
