Borg Invasion Notes:
There are no Red Alert button pop ups in the Eta Eridani, Gamma Orionis, Pelia sector blocks or the exploration clusters/nebulas.
The Borg will invade every sector block at random intervals on a per instance basis. Look for a Red Alert? button on the lower right side of your screen.
When a Red Alert button pops up in a sector block instance, you have seven minutes to get to that sector block before the button vanishes.
The Borg that invade all sector blocks but the Orellius and Zeta Andromedae sector blocks are set to level 45 and everyone that is under level 45 will be bolstered to that level once inside the map.
Any player above level 45 that enters any Borg Red Alert map aside from those in the Orellius and Zeta Andromedae sector blocks will be bolstered down to level 45.
The Borg that invade the Zeta Andromedae sector block are level 51. Players will only be bolstered to level 45.
The Borg that invade the Orellius sector block are level 53. Players will only be bolstered to level 45.
The Borg enemy in the invasion Deep Space Encounters have no drops but give 5 times XP for kills. This bonus XP stacks with one xp boost and the QXP weekend if its running.
Players are offered a mission to receive a 15 minute XP boost upon entering the zone.
There are a significant number of accolades associated with this event.
There is a daily mission associated with the mission in each sector block, which means 11 daily missions in all. The reward for this daily is either a level appropriate random item or a dilithium container.

Is it random? When I had only one left, I also only had one sector veteran accolade left (for completing just one event in that sector, not the 200). I completed the one in that sector, and also got my final Unimatrix accolade.
