Assimilation tubules were a pair of flexible needle-like devices that extended from the wrists or fingers of Borg drones. These tubules initiated the assimilation process by injecting Borg nanoprobes into a victim's bloodstream, and were capable of penetrating any armor or energy shielding known to the Federation. Assimilation tubules also allowed drones to interface with technology.
