In their search for species worthy of assimilation, the Borg encountered a non-humanoid species called the Undine, also know by their Borg designation as Species 8472. The Borg send multiple ships into their realm, the fluidic space, in year 2373.
However, Species 8472 proved immune to assimilation and the invasion of their realm provoked a war; according to Seven of Nine, Species 8472 was the first species to offer "true resistance to the Borg" in their long history. With their superior biological technology, Species 8472 pushed back the Borg and launched a counter-invasion of the galaxy, annihilating at least one Unimatrix, billion of Borg drones, hundred of ships and even entire planets.
