The Borg having a queen destroyed the central premise of the Borg. They were the ultimate decentralisation, the ultimate destruction of the ego. The mere idea of personal identity was fundamentally disruptive to their society.

Then that idea got tossed out the window for them to become shitty space ants. Space ants have been done better. Impersonal, incomprehensible, totalitarian cyborgs hadn't.

I am of two minds on this, on the one hand I agree that the redcon of the original concept of the borg was disappointing, on the other hand I really liked the performances delivered by the Borg queen.
