Question for David Mack: How/why did you choose the planets/species the Borg annihilated?
I based my account of the destruction of systems and planets on a circular expansion away from the center of the Azure Nebula, as depicted in Geoffrey Mandel's reference book Star Trek: Star Charts
Which, admittedly, is imperfect, since that's a 2-D projection of 3-D star positions. For instance, in the map, Acamar and Barolia (the first two systems hit in the invasion) look very close together, but they're actually a hundred light-years apart. But that's okay, since it stands to reason that the Borg's invasion strategy would've been a little more complex than just expanding in a sphere.
