Borg Cubes present an omni-directional threat to opposing forces.  They are fully optimized to engage in combat from any direction, and any facing can act as a primary weapons battery.  Weapon systems include beam weapons (possibly lasers or some type of [[phaser]] equivalent), [[tractor beam]]s that immobilize enemy ships and drain their [[shield]]s, and shield-draining pulse weapons.

Defensively, Borg ships are quite [[adaptation|adaptable]], able to neutralize many [[frequency]]-based weapons with apparently trivial effort.  The exact mechanism by which they neutralize [[photon torpedo|photon torpedoes]] is still unclear, but it may involve shielding interplay between the weapon and the Cube.  Borg ships are still vulnerable to superior firepower, and technologically inferior forces can still inflict damage on a cube with sufficient numbers.  For example, despite using weapons which the Borg had had ample opportunity to study and neutralize, a Federation fleet still managed to destroy a cube in ''[[Star Trek: First Contact]]''.

A Borg cube is capable of defeating a fleet of 40 Federation starships without sustaining any significant damage in return ([[TNG]] "Best of Both Worlds"), but a fleet of hundreds of starhips is capable of inflicting heavy damage (''[[Star Trek: First Contact]]'').
