1)Transport an away team to the Borg vessel with nuclear device. 2)Arm the explosive. 3)Transport away and detonate by remote or wait for the timer (presumably set to a very short delay).
Poof: no more Borg ship. Seriously, it's already been shown that the Borg ignore intruders until they become an immediate threat. By the time they figure out what you're up to, it's too late for them.
You do realize that a 3 kilogram photon torpedo warhead is just as powerful as most present day nuclear weapons in terms of energy released. 1 photon torpedo is about the equivalent of 65 megatons of TNT. The largest atmospheric test that I know of was was Soviet Tsar Bomba which was 50 megatons.
Yeah Lol...But personally, i'd rather carry a full load of transphasic torpedoes, plus voyagers armor.
If that doesnt succeed, then just grab the ball point pen nearest to you and start stabbing the borg in the kidneys.

That'll work fine for one or two cubes, but the Borg are fully capable of blocking transporter signals when they deem them to be a threat. And that's assuming that their internal sensors don't detect the presence of a high-yield warhead being placed aboard their ship and respond accordingly...
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

Agreed. I think the Borg would likely deem a warhead/bomb in the middle of their ship to be a worthwhile threat. Not to mention that was tried before in a Voyager episode [where they used the Borg as a plot line yet again] when they beamed a photon torpedo onto an Interceptor. The Borg were trying to defuse it but ran out of time. My guess is, next time they'd either know how to do it quickly and defuse it in time, or simple block it/beam it out and prevent it remaining on the ship.
The only real issue with a matter/antimatter reaction is that as much as 50% of that energy won't do anything because that energy is carried off as neutrinos which pass through normal matter almost completely undisturbed. Of course that still leaves you with at least 32.5 megatons of energy that still can be used.
