Ah. I see what you mean.

Well, the definition might not be entirely textbook - they call it a hivemind, as they're in hives, and it's a mind thing.
It's more like they've got telepathic linkages within each hive, centering on the Royal in command. In some respects, it can act like the internet, in others it's something that can be used to compel or to send individuals or groups into hibernation. Mental connections that are intrinsic to them.

A hivemind or a puppet mind? A hive mind is what the Borg used to be before they introduced the queen: All act as a single individual with no one individual controlling all.

A puppet mind is basically what people think is a hive mind: One entity with free will controlling all the others.
