Borg cubes are a funny thing in this game. Their role is close to being a stereotypical support role with emphasis in shield-stripping torpedoes, tractor beams, and low damage, but with the quirk of being able to soak damage. The Tactical Cube fills the role of what we'd normally expect from a normal cube based on the show.

Alone, they really don't pose a threat aside from the wow-factor of losing all your shields and the huge warp core breach damage. When accompanies by other ships, they are devastating due to their ability to keep you locked down without shields while other Borg ships pound on you.
