Re: What would be the Borg Queen's designation?

She gave her name on screen. She literally self-identifies as "the Borg." As in, "I am the Borg." Her name is the name of an entire species.
Or rather, the Borg is the entire species, and the Queen is merely its central coordinating node. When she speaks, it's the entire collective mind that's speaking, simply focused through that particular body. Which is why the Queen can't be killed. Destroy the Queen, and the Collective is incapacitated for a bit, but it simply plugs in a new Queen component and restores full function.
I always thought of her as the personification of the Borg Collective. I just thought she might have a designation other than "I am the Borg". Though the biblical connotations of "I AM" just hit me now.
