A unimatrix, plural unimatrices and unimatrixes, was an organizational structure within the Borg Collective. Unimatrix was also a type of shielding technology used by Starfleet. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion, Part II", "Extreme Risk", STO - Crossfire mission: "Borg Deep Space Incursions")


The unimatrix subdivsion included regions of space, specific cohorts of Borg drones, and space stations known as unicomplex. The drone cohort would be subdivided further into a trimatrix. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion, Part II", "Unimatrix Zero", STO - Crossfire mission: "Borg Deep Space Incursions")

The spatial unimatrices could be broken down into spatial grids. The area inside a grid could be specified as octants. The Borg would also use the designation Matrix for regions of space. (VOY episodes: "Dark Frontier", "Drone", "Infinite Regress", "Scorpion, Part II")


In 2375, Lieutenant Commander Tuvok of the Federation starship USS Voyager designed unimatrix shielding used in the ship's multispatial probe and the first Flyer-class heavy shuttle. (VOY episode: "Extreme Risk")

In 2376, a group of drones who regained their individuality temporarily while regenerating formed a insurrectionist group known as Unimatrix Zero. Thanks to the assistance they received from Voyager, the Borg were plunged into a brief civil war. (VOY episode: "Unimatrix Zero")

In 2409, Unimatrix 0047 was tasked by the Collective with the subjugation of local space in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Its fleets were led by command ships. (STO mission: "Borg Deep Space Incursions")

In the same year, Unimatrix 0047 suborned two of its command ships to Unimatrix 8472, located in fluidic space. (STO mission: "Fluid Dynamics")
