Seven lived until around June 2001, when she ceased to exist except in reruns.

The problem is, which books? Only the ones you've read? There are TONS of contradictions in the books versus later episodes and movies. How do you reconcile all that? Books will incorporate details from earlier movies and episodes, it does NOT work in reverse. Why is that?

The books are interesting and many of them would make superior episodes if brought to the screen, however I prefer to see them as what if scenarios rather than canon.

As for Seven's longevity, if she kept the implants and hence obviously an alcove to regenerate and the doctor was always kept close at hand to fix any issues I reckon she'd live considerably longer than she would have done if she'd never been assimilated.

I presume after all Borg technology was removed her lifespan would return to normal human expectations.

The books that have been released after the series end supposedly are canon. They are refered to as "continuing stories" and keep the same plots and characters in each book.

Also, all of the events from "Countdown" involving the TNG crew were done in a way that can be explained in the future continuing novels. As of right now, the novels are set in a time period approx 1 1/2 years after Nemesis. The events in countdown take place 8 years after Nemesis, so that leaves 6 1/2 years of more story telling time!

Hard to say but she human so if she become a officer and return to space she could die on an away mission or she could die of old age.

Borg life spans are likely greater than shorter. The Borg were in pursuit of perfection which is why they enchanced the human for with cybernetics. If the point is to enchance then the greatest medical knowledge assimilated would be put to use for the survival of the drone. Drones had personal shields which is a protection to extend life in hazardous situations.

I don't think it's a leap that the would live longer.
Intresting note. One of th Ideas for Star Trek ENTERPRISE was to intro the Borg Queen as a human that had yet to be assimilated. That's more than 300 years.

Ants who have workers instead of drones have queens that live 29 years in captivity in comparison the Queen could likely live a thousands as most worker live only a few months.

Ants aren't drones. They're workers.
Remember to maintain a population with a high death rate there must be a high birth rate.
The birth of a Drone is assimilation but if the Borg don't assimilate they don't grow so a drone must live a long time as compared to an ant worker

Seven isn't a drone anymore, so the question doesn't apply. She is fully human, with no trace of Borg techno in her....

And, she is Annika now. Kind of sad...even though she is still alive, seeing Seven go away makes me go "awwwww".
