Species 1429 was an unknown species that was encountered by the Borg. Before the encounter, this species was renowned for their technological prowess; the Borg Queen considered that the other worlds she had carefully prepared as unknowing research and development locations were now useless to her and the resources used were a waste. From 1429, she gained the time travel technology that she utilized aboard the Borg sphere that traveled back in time; however, the device malfunctioned - where she had set it to take her only a few days in the past, it returned her several centuries. After this, the Queen decided that she would only utilize it in an extreme emergency, as to prevent further malfunctions. (Star Trek novel: Engines of Destiny)
