A lot of Trek battles seem, sometimes, to have no rhyme or reason to them. Now, I LOVED First Contact, but I really wanted to know WHY that spot on the cube was a weak point, what mechanism was still connecting Picard to the Collective, etc.
Actually, J.M. Dillard's novelization reveals that Picard heard from the Borg that they were diverting all emergency power to that section.

Or...something like that.

It was just that they were damaged the most there.
