Species 874 was an unknown species that was encountered by the Borg. Although the Borg attempted to assimilate the species, they chose death over assimilation, an act that disappointed the Borg Queen. From that event, she believed that changes in the Borg Collective's approaches were required, as the loss of even one useful species was not the best outcome. (Star Trek novel: Engines of Destiny)
