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

Again, Sci, your analogy isn't particularly applicable here, because we already know for a fact that the Borg Collective does give numerical and verbal designators to its component drones -- Third of Five, Seven of Nine, and so forth. That might be implausible for the reason you cite, but it's an established fact of the universe. So it makes perfect sense in context to assume that the Queen also has a similar designation.

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

A related question: Did Locutus have a separate designation in the Collective, or was "Locutus" sufficient for their internal matters, too? I'm thinking it was, because in Descent, one of the Borg referred to him that way. In which case, maybe "Queen" is all the designation she needs for their purposes, too.
