Iconography: heavily armed soldiers/officers walking around dark 'assimilated' corridors confronting near-unstoppable alien menaces. Thematics: the 'Queen' who controls the hive.
The design for the Borg Queen was heavily influenced by a similar character from the Michael Jackson 3-D film Captain EO. In that movie, Anjelica Huston played the villainous Supreme Leader, who descended from the ceiling using long cables, much like the Borg Queen does in this movie.

During the 1989 premiere of the TV series Quantum Leap episode "Genesis" (part 1), the Roy Orbison song "Ooby Dooby" is heard on a record player during a patio BBQ scene near the end of the episode. That same song is heard here playing on a juke box about 29 minutes into the movie and again at the end of the movie during a bar scene which is set partly outdoors. Interestingly, both plot lines involve time travel and an outdoor social activity during which "Ooby Dooby" is playing in the background.
