A collection of nations with a single government, apparently a unified military (if anyone can recall other Federation members fielding their own military I'll retract the point, but I'm pretty sure it was 100% starfleet), and one head of state.

The federation would be the USA in that analogy - yes you can see how technically it was meant to be a collection of self governing nations, but for everyone outside it (and many people inside it) it's just one country.

Because they behave more like their ancestors, their evolutionary past, not like the federation that thinks 'Oh we have evolved so much in 2k years' while they haven't, they are still in the evolutionary sense cave-men. The Klingons embrace their past and can better anticipate other beings, HOWEVER this influences their society which is expressed as build-in mechanisms that leaves their society brittle for internal conflict.

I could give you a mundane answer based on the realities of production like everyone else. I prefer a fantastical explanation based on canon and science. My theory revolves around Janeway's use of Borg trans-warp conduits to go back in time and basically undo everything. Some scientists believe the future can have an effect on the past. This gives us a convenient cop-out for anything that doesn't make sense.

It seems really weird that the federation could best the Borg in so many occasions, I mean the Borg (should be) incredibly powerful, adaptive and invincible.. Why couldn't the Borg just crush the federation, they had many occasions to succeed?

I think I remember reading about a script proposal for "Best of Both Worlds" that one of their plans to beat the Borg was to link Data into the ships computer where he could out-Borg the Borg. Data would essentially be able to remodulate shields and weapons adapting faster than the Borg could which turned him into the focal point of Borg attention. Idea was scrapped but parts were reused for First Contact where it was hinted that the real reason is that the Borg wanted to assimilate Data, not stop First Contact.

That would have been bad-ass.

I've got to admit something: as much as I liked Picard, the thought of Captain Riker and First Officer Shelby continuing on was a future I was eager to accept.


d28af7 No.3052

isnt it pretty much humanity which is the deus ex machina in every star trek plot?

thats why TOS is basically kirk fucking alines all the time, his human love ie his penis fixes all their problems all the time

the borg believe themselves to be perfect but the morality that is sold in star trek is that they have sacrificed their humanity (or humandoidity). in pursuit of creating the perfect organism they have compromised their spirit and their ingenuity, they are overspecialised.

borg replicate for the sake of replicating, humans persists for the sake of the higher good and so are willing to adapt to difficult circumstances and then ultimately their will overcomes the borgs blind endeavour. thinking it about the borg even do that whole thing where they ignore people if they arent high enough on their argo list.


211c17 No.3056

>>3052

The Borg don't replicate just for the sake of replicating, they want to add anything useful to enhance the overall super being. The threat, as it was originally before it got nerfed and pozzed, was this thing keeps growing more and more powerful while it spreads as it absorbs every civilization's advantages into itself. Eventually it'd swallow all life in the universe.

In reality however I think a collective consciousness such as that at some point would seek evolution rather than expansion. After awhile assimilation wouldn't offer much further advancement since the tech an cultures they'd run across would be similar to what it already encountered. It'd seek out the more advanced life forms in Star Trek, energy beings, Q, shit like that and try to find a way to assimilate it or become more like it.

Wasn't it alleged that the 29th Century Collective no longer assimilates races, instead it takes their DNA and uses it to grow new drones?

All very true. I've never thought of the "safeness" of the writing being my objection to VOY, but there it is. Paris, the probationary rebel without a cause, ends up having safety-scissors edginess of uncle Jesse from Full House. And that's just the flavor of the series for whatever reason.

Borg, Talaxian, Amdoriam. Klingon, Orion, Ferengi, and Cardassian but I'm not recognizing the one that the Andorian is clinging to in the first picture.

Also, the fuck is this shit? Most of these are Federation member races and they are all trying to have some sort of American/Japanese what? That's not a meal nor a party and in the second image it looks as if the Klingon had raided some disgusting fridge or some shit.

>Whoa those instructions seem complicated

Not really, it's only there to help the most vicious of mouthbreathers install it or if you were retarded enough to get Windows 10. It's basically first two boxes ticked from install typically if you want to just play vanilla.

>What can you do in it?

You can conquer the galaxy via conquest or diplomacy playing the 5 major Alpha Quadrant powers. Use espionage and sabotage to gain leverage over opponents, even introduce biological weapons into someone's ecosystem killing millions and blame someone else for it. You can also build a subspace graviton field and make Bajor pay for it.

>How do the Federation play?

Like an attention whoring creepy girlfriend who wants to be everyone's friend. If you go to war with too many races your people will likely rebel. Ships focus more on defence and all rounded. Uses Diplomacy to gain power over a lot of Minor Races by making them become Members.

>How do the Klingons play?

Viking raiders. If you aren't fighting or make peace your people will get pissed off and likely rebel. That said they are surprisingly capable at diplomacy and will often have more warlike Minor Species waiting round the corner to join them. Have some very good fast and hard hitting ships plus their non-combat ships have weapons. A few of their ships also have cloaks.

Robots like the one you posted that resemble humanoids are worthless in Trek, unless they're on Data's level of intelligence, in which case they would be androids, not robots. Think about it. Need something built in a hurry? Replicate it. Need some heavy lifting done? Transport it or use one of those gravity hand-trucks. Need to calculate something in a hurry? Ask the computer. Hostile forces are boarding the ship? Throw up some force-fields or grab a phaser. A slow, clunky robot wouldn't be much use against enemy boarding parties anyway.

Basically, any need a crew may have for a robot is already built into the ship. In rare cases where the built in tools of the ship aren't applicable, something new can be replicated, jury-rigged, or even be temporarily fabricated by a set of holo-emitters. The only robots that the Federation does use are non-humanoid, such as robotic arms that help assemble new star ships. So any kind of humanoid robot in Star Trek would just be obsolete.

I don't get it, why do we need the rest of it? This looks completely sufficient to fulfill the mission. Not weighed down by worthless crew quarters. Improved agility and higher power to weapons and shields ratio in combat scenarios. Why would anyone leave Starbase with a paperweight saucer section attached?

Because Starfleet vessels are ships of peace :^)

Seriously though they are long range explorers, without crew comforts they would be worthless.

Exactly, they want spacious crew quarters, ice cream bars, recreational facilities, and to bring their families with them as they venture out into certain and probably lethal danger.

When they want a dedicated warship you get pic related, which seems to be just the saucer section with some bits bolted on :^)

The battle bridge of the Enterprise-D was way better than the one in the saucer section.
