Borg transwarp network
The Borg transwarp network in the 24th century was a vast series of transwarp conduits spanning the entire Milky Way Galaxy. The conduits in the network were connected by 6 transwarp hubs, and were supported by a series of interspatial manifolds, which were protected by shielding regulated from the central nexus by the Borg Queen herself. The network maintained thousands of exit apertures in all four quadrants, allowing the Collective to deploy vessels almost anywhere in the galaxy within minutes, giving the Borg a decisive strategic advantage.
The transwarp network was destroyed in 2378 when Kathryn Janeway's counterpart from 2404 was able to infect the Queen with a neurolytic pathogen, an act which interfered with the Queen's ability to regulate the shielding protecting the interspatial manifolds. This in turn allowed the crew of the USS Voyager to fire a series of transphasic torpedoes, destroying the manifolds and causing the network to collapse. (VOY: "Endgame")
Federation transwarp network
In the alternate 2259, the Federation had an experimental trans warp network in the Alpha Quadrant. The network, resembling a triangle, had three points resembling hollow yellow-bordered pentagons. One of the routes was a corridor. This network was labeled on a map depicting a section of the Alpha Quadrant. This map was seen on a powerwall in the offices of Admirals Christopher Pike and Alexander Marcus at Starfleet Headquarters. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
