Star Trek: The Next Generation - Hive
In the 29th century the Borg have assimilated the entire galaxy without really know if it was worth doing. A spark of what's left of Jean-Luc Picard awakens in Locutus and knows what must be done, starting 500 years in the past. In the 24th century, Picard is on vacation with Vash when he hears the collective calling. Returning to Starfleet Command, he learns that the Borg are massing and need to speak with Locutus of Borg. The Borg Queen brings news of a new threat, Species 1881, the Voldranaii. Failing to assimilate them, the Borg now find themselves on the run from a Voldranaii fleet with superior technology and a desire to exterminate all potential threats, including humans. The Queen sends her ambassador, Seven of Nine, to meet with Picard. In the 29th century, Locutus resurrects Data to help kill the Queen.

Variant covers include a David Messina Famous Borg in History cover and a copy signed by Brannon Braga.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Hive
Locutus needs Data's help to destroy the Borg Queen. First order of business is to execute the Queen's Sentinel, a monstrous drone that is Seven of Nine. 503 years in the past, Picard recruits Annika Hansen to return to the collective as a Federation spy. Three years later, Seven of Nine, the Queen's ambassador, assures Starfleet that the Voldranaii threat is real. Starfleet and the Borg make plans to intercept the Voldranaii fleet. Worf and a team of Vulcan commandos board a Voldranaii ship to retrieve biological samples of the aliens. Examining the DNA data sent by Worf's team, Seven learns that the Voldranaii were engineered by Borg nanoprobes. The Queen transmits the Sentinel protocol to Seven who becomes something monstrous. 500 years later, Data kills Seven. Locutus won’t let anyone stand in his way. 500 years in the past, Picard confronts the Queen's Sentinel.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Hive
Data has gone back in time 500 years with a weaponized nano-virus programmed into his neural net. He convinces Picard that the virus can destroy the Borg within hours. To deliver the weapon, Picard must allow himself to be assimilated by the Borg Queen. He asks Seven for assistance. Picard, Data and Seven beam aboard the flagship of the Borg armada. The Borg Queen welcomes Locutus with a passionate injection of nanoprobes while Seven injects Picard with her own nanoprobe filters to conceal the nano-virus from the Queen. The Borg Queen is reduced to a puddle of green goo and the collective begins dying. While the Enterprise stalls for time, Seven attempts to free as many Borg from the collective as she can. Ultimately, Seven saves thousands, but at the cost of her own life. The Borg survivors are given a new colony of their own and Picard is alone with his thoughts at last.

The retailer incentive cover by David Messina was cancelled.
