Borg Cube models

This is a list of various toys, models, ornaments, and other products based on the Borg Cube, and Borg Tactical Cube. First seen in the first ever Borg episode, Q Who, the Cube is perhaps the most recognisable icon of the Borg Collective. Its simple geometric silhouette belays the incredibly intricate detailing of the hull, which has resulted in mixed results when recreating the design in the various forms listed below.

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives comic omnibuses

The Gold Key Archives is a series of Star Trek comic omnibuses published by IDW Publishing from 2014 onwards. Each hardcover book collects six issues from the first ever series of Star Trek comics, originally published by Gold Key Comics from 1967 to 1979.

The Gold Key Comics have previously been printed in omnibus books, by Golden Press in the 1970s, as Enterprise Logs, and Checker Books' The Key Collection, in the 2000s - Neither series managed to reprint the entire run. What sets the Gold Key Archives apart from both previous efforts is the substantial remastering of the artwork, replacing previously quite drab reproductions with vibrant, clean, and crisp new colouring.

Each book features new cover artwork by Michael Stribling, and new introductory texts from a variety of contemporary Star Trek comics experts. Some volumes also feature short biographies of the original creators.
