A bug that involved Romulan Liberated Borg captains and their skills once they chose an ally
V'ger was actually linked to the Borg by the Great Bird of the Galaxy himself. Roddenberry implied a connection in an interview IIRC regarding TNG and the episode 'QWho'. It's obvious STO has paid homage to this with the sector block Red Alert events. EDIT- Although it is possible Roddenberry was joking in that interview.
Remember TMP was pretty vague about it. Spock had a brief mind-meld, it's entirely possible he only got a fraction of V'ger's history or only parts of it could be interpreted. A planet full of 'living machines' could easily be interpreted as a planet full of Borg. We don't know, because we never see it for ourselves.
To address the OP, I don't think Q or the Continuum had anything to do with the formation of the Borg. But it is one of Star Trek's biggest mysteries. Among many, really.
