  1. The Borg do not seek to better all life forms, they seek perfection in themselves. Races which have nothing to further them to perfection are ignored. If the Borg were trying to bring perfection to all, wouldn't they have assimilated the Kazon?
  2. Isn't that essentially repeating mj's statement?
  3. Technically, it was a duplication, not an alternate universe. Who's to say that the surviving Voyager wasn't the copy, and Kim the real one?
  4. The episode cards also say that the tachyon beams were from the Enterprise (either F or G), though it said earlier on the same card that it was the three Picards who sent out the beam. It then says that they were rescued by Riker on the Enterprise. But, all three Enterprises were needed to enter the anomaly and collapse it.
  5. According to the episode cards released by Paramount, all sets and costumes from TOS were reconstructions. It says they couldn't find all of the materials, so they had to find "often costly" replacements.
  6. In the two-part "Gambitt" episodes, it was established that an officer's command codes were immediately locked out to prevent any chance of them being used. In the episode where Data was summoned to his father, he changed Picard's command code. So, any numbers the Borg might know are completely useless, be it because the ship they are for was destroyed or captured with the assimilation of the officers, or because the codes will have been changed immediately.
  7. The Borg are not based solely on exploration and assimilation, as evidenced by their research into the Omega Particle. Their exploratory and assimilation focuses tend to be all that most other races see, however. This does not mean that, because the other races do not see what the Borg are up to, they are not up to anything. The Borg territory is not a hollow shell filled with empty planets, ringed with cubes bent on assimilation.
  8. Odo already had his appearance mapped out by the time he met Kira.
  9. Odo modeled himself after the Bajoran scientist who found and studied him. Most Founders appear largely androgynous. Who knows about the female.
  10. I'm not certain what you mean, nurturing is something hunter-gatherers do. Hunting and gathering are not male activities, they are done by the entire family group. To say that one sex does both hunting and gathering is inaccurate. A gatherer does not have the time to hunt, and a hunter does not have the energy to gather. This was not in a scientific journal because it has too many assumptions and inaccuracies to get past even one lenient reviewer.
  11. At least she didn't go as far as Cpt. Braxton.
  12. I can see why this isn't in a peer-reviewed journal. When they did their 'research', why didn't they look at contemporary hunter-gatherer societies? If they had, they wouldn't have said that men were the hunter-gathers and women were child-rearers. In hunter-gatherer societies, men tend to hunt while women gather. This means that women provide the bulk of day-to-day nutrition as the men don't always hunt and are not always successful when they do. In modern hunter-gatherer societies, both sexes raise children. They're confusing childhood gender training with genetics. Boys show higher spatial awareness because they get Legos, girls don't because they get dolls. I have good spatial skills for that reason, as I got the building toys as well as dolls. Genetics are not responsible for today's gender roles.
  13. If I remember my timeline correctly, the Hansens didn't go looking for the Borg until after the Enterprise encountered them. The Borg are presumed to be responsible for the lost colonies along the Neutral Zone, but at the time the Hansens left to follow a cube, that was not known. What causes you to place her assimilation so far back? Edit: Also, I believe the subspace signal the Borg attempted to send using the Enterprise deflector dish was stopped when Worf, Hawke, and Picard disconnected and destroyed the apparatus.
  14. Mice have been successfully put into a state of near suspended animation, read more at BBC News | Science/Nature | Mice put in 'suspended animation'
  15. I didn't like McDuff. He didn't belong there.
