Borg alcoves were a technology used by the Borg for the maintenance of drones in a process designated regeneration.

An alcove provided a drone with all the energy and sustenance it requires to maintain its biological and mechanical components. Alcoves also provide a direct link with the collective allowing a drone to download the latest data as it regenerates. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion", "Drone", et al.)

The Starfleet conspiracy discovered by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D in 2370 stored an alcove, and a Borg drone, in its secret facility on, or near, Earth. (TNG comic: "An Inconvenient Truth")
