At the end what do you think happened the Cube did Voyager just leave it there that is an offel lot off very advanced and even deadly technolagy to just be floating in space for anyone to get . Why did they not use it the Borg were not coming for it as it was defective to them Voyager should have docked in it and used its slipstream drive to get home espicially as seven new how too use all the systems . What do you,s think .

Borg propulsion technology is protected by a protocol that damages the transwarp coil beyond repair when a Borg vessel becomes critically damaged.

Why shouldn't voyager leave it floating? If the borg find it, they will reabsorb it and one more cube didn't give them THAT much more of a tactical advantage. If another race finds it, they may find tech that helps them fight off the borg.

Besides with voyager limited on torpedoes, mines, and such, why waste resources blowing up a derelict?

thats right, most of the borg technology is worthless after a ship is damaged severely like that. Seven may have activated a self destruct even though we didn't see it at the end of the episode.

borg dont have slipstream,they have a mutch slower transwarp drive

Transwarp is actually faster. Transwarp crossed from delta to alpha in minutes. Slipstream took hours.
Also, I believe whereas slipstream is generated and controlled by the ship, the transwarp conduits are merely accessed by the ships and are maintained externally.

There are two type of transwarps. One is the conduits, which are more like artificial wormholes than a propulsion system, and then there's transwarp drive, which is slower than slipstream drive velocities.

That's sometimes the problem with Trek, too many unanswered questions. What about the ships docked inside the Cube was there any tech that could be salvaged, or did the Borg already strip them down?

If you can read this it means I've got something to work on here.

Probably. The argument is that writers should have followed this up in a later episode or the producers answer by other mediums (such as event reference within the ep, franchises, books, DVD extras etc...)
