The idea that it was built to fight the Borg comes from Peter David's novels Vendetta and Before Dishonor. They retconned Spock's line to mean it left our galaxy and flew around part of it and re-entered - the rationale being that a machine that feeds on planets wouldn't find any fuel in the intergalactic void and so would never manage the journey.
