The Battle of Sector 001 is a term often applied to the Borg incursion of 2373, in which a single Borg cube penetrated Federation space from the coreward Typhon Sector and fought a running battle to Earth in an attempt to assimilate the Federation capital. The cube was eventually destroyed in orbit of Earth thanks to the intervention of Federation Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-E; surprisingly, the cube launched a Borg sphere that then attempted to alter history by preventing first contact between Humans and Vulcans in 2063, but this too was thwarted by Picard and his crew. (TNG movie: Star Trek: First Contact)
During the Battle of Sector 001, several ships were targeted for assimilation by the cube. At least one of them was the USS Budapest, whose captain and several of whose bridge crew members were assimilated. Lt. Samuel Bowers was amongst the security forces called upon to fight the invading Borg drones through the use of the TR-116. (DS9 novel: Lesser Evil)
