So, were the Borg ever officially destroyed? What really happened to them?

They lost one of their transwarp hubs and a unicomplex.

But since the Borg Queen can return, I doubt they have destroyed that ability, so another Borg Queen should have taken over.

BTW, their transwarp hubs look like stars that have been modified or something. Any ideas?

The Borg are still there just hanging out in the Delta Quadrant. Just beacuse they havent been talked about in some time dosent mean that they have been destroyed. Remember that the Borg controll lots of space and recorses, the loss of one unicomplex and transwarp hub is not going to destroy them.

I don't really know but there should have been aknock on effect which would have damaged the entire collective but lets face it... They will adapt

Considering there's such a thing as a 29th Century Borg as seen in VOY: "One", I doubt the Borg are fully destroyed. Crippled yes, but not destroyed. With the demise of the Queen, no doubt another replacement from her species would have succeeded her. We could assume that the new Queen's first goal is to regenerate the collective; repair whatever damage was down, and send ships to re-construct the transwarp hub. With regards to the loss of the Unicomplex; If I'm not mistaken, it was called a Primary Unicomplex. One could assume that there's such a thing as a Secondary Complex that would take over operations until the reconstruction of another Primary Unicomplex. In conclusion, I would say that the Borg would be very quiet for the next several years, but within time, I'd imagine the Borg would make a comeback. Whether other races would take this opportunity to finish off the Borg for good is another matter.

I'd imagine that having adapted to armour and technology from the future they're now massively more deadly and busy making war with some of the more deadly species that they didn't have so much of a chance against before. Give them a few years worth of warmongering in the Delta quadrant and they'll probably come and lay the smack-down on the federation.

Yeah, I highly doubt that the Borg were entirely destroyed, although several things from games/series/voyager made it appear so...

Also some vague director and such comments made like First Contact being the movie where they destroy the Borg and such...riiiight..:D

The Borg have gotta be pissed at Janeway, no doubt about that, so much chaos because of her... I can see another attack on the Federation & Earth.

Well there are several problems that face us. First off, just because VOY shows them in the 29th century at some point doesn't really tell us much. The problem with time travel episodes is that causality just flies right out the window. This is actually complicated even more by the very last episode of VOY since the events of that episode weren't supposed to happen till Janeway went back in time. This begs the question as to whether or not the Borg in the 29th century follows the original timeline or if it follows the one that Admiral Janeway set into motion, or if it's even dependent on that at all.

However, I will say that I think it's probably safe to say that the Borg are still out there. If we only took the events of First Contact into consideration then it's likely that the Borg would have ceased to exist after the destruction of the Borg Queen. However, VOY changed things and brings up even more questions. Because now we have to ask whether or not there is actually more than one hive mind out there, or do the borg simply replace the queen once disconnected.

I personally would go for the former where there are actually multiple hive minds since there are plenty of examples of groups of Borg not being able to function once disconnected from the hive mind.

Anything is possible in the Star Trek Universe. For all we know, the Queen is like Mr. Daniels from ENT. Once killed, her past takes over and carries to live on. Or perhaps another member of the Queen's species takes over upon her demise. We just don't know. Without communications from the Queen, Borg ships operate independantly due to their vinculums(sp?). Considering that the Queen died, each Borg ship would have a mind of its own, thus multiple hive minds throughout the collective, but I would assume the ships would operate with the former Queen's original intentions... assimilate all worthy species.
