But why is the gender identity always female?
The only reason I could ever come up with was the "perfection" of the arrangement of the chromosomes in the female gene.

But then one has to wonder do all females of all alian races have this arrangement? Well no because not all Terrian species have the odd pairing of chromosomes ending in a male.

In birds, the opposite is true: the male is the homogameticsex, having two Z chromosomes (ZZ), and the female (hen) is hetergametics, having one Z and one W chromosome (ZW).

I see no reason that there wouldn't have been Borg Kings. Maybe we only saw Queens.

Well there's no king in bee hives either.

Well yes there is but he only serves one purpose and quickly dies afterward.
