Chasing comets by thefirstfleet Chasing comets by thefirstfleet
"Captains log, stardate 50893.5. The moment I have dreaded for nearly six years has finally arrived. The Borg, our most lethal enemy have begun an invasion of the Federation, and this time, even with our upgraded tactical systems, there may be no stopping them."

Maurice Hurley (creator of the Borg) had something more in mind with the attacks the Romulans complained about in "The Neutral Zone". Hurley had meant for this episode to comprise part of a trilogy in which the Borg would be formally introduced. The opening episode of the second season further explored matters, including a possible alliance between the Federation and the Romulan Empire to counter the new threat. Such plans, however, were ruined by the writer's guild strike of that year. As such, the Borg's introduction had to wait until "Q Who".

And the Borg was to be connected to the parasites of "Consipracy".

:) An insectoid race, yes, but the parasites vanished without a follow up. What's funny is that an actual conspiracy of Star Fleet officers was Hurley's initial idea, but Roddenberry objected to such an idea (it was later visited by that one DS-9 episode).

The problem in "First Contact" is the Borg - and more specifically, with the introduction of a "Borg Queen." The reason why the Borg are so frightening in :The Next Generation" was not merely because they were powerful, but because they were so incredibly alien: they were a race in which no individuals exist. The Borg are not a "hive of drones" who are ruled by a "queen"; they are a single mind spread throughout billions upon billions of bodies. A single Borg is not akin to a drone in a hive, which has an individual nature but which is oppressed in a rigid hierarchy; rather, it is akin to a cell in an organism - it has no free, meaningful, or distinct existence beyond the larger body. There is no head or "ruler" of the Borg, any more than there is a single cell in your body that governs what you do. What makes the Borg's outlook on the rest of the universe so disturbing is that they cannot comprehend individuality, and thus individual lives are utterly insignificant to them... they take life without compunction because to the Borg, they aren't really taking lives - killing a human is like scraping a cell off someone's skin, an inconsequential act. The Borg are a truly alien species with a completely alien mindset - a rare gem in mainstream sci-fi.

Couldn't agree more. I guess continuing the original concept of the Borg was too much for the writers.

LOL. Funny you should mention it. My thought after seeing the last season of BSG (which was postponed quite a long time due to a writer's guild strike): you asked for better pay while you serve us this kind of crap?

With the exception of Ronald D. Moore (whom I'm not his biggest fan), Rick Berman and his lapdog, Brannon Braga (whose face is the kind I like to punch), really boil my piss. Trekkies blame J.J. Abrams for ruining Star Trek, but it was these two who conducted the whole ensemble.

I've had a thought, Instead of the Enterprise Entering in the Docked Configuration only the Stardrive flies in thus solving the Separation issue for the Battle, and the Borg, Like in the original Script set up the Hive in the Environmental Control room since Engineering would have been too cramped.:shrug: like I said, just a thought.

It would make for a good shot when the Enterprise Crosses in between the Sun and the Phoenix.

Indeed. The Galaxy Class should never have been destroyed in Generations. She looks good here as she would in First Contact.

I like this scene better with the Enterprise-D. I find that the Sovereign class looks too much like a cross between the Excelsior and Constitution Class on steroids.

I like it, but I prefer the Galaxy class as "the" TNG Enterprise. It was treated badly by Brannon and Braga and I think it deserved more, not to be killed off after 7 years.

Indeed. That was a downright shameful thing to do, and alienated some fans. Me for sure. It took me a LONG while to come back to Trek, and the bad taste of killing off the 'D' still hasn't fully left, and I'd really like to see at least that part of 'Generations' retconned.

Yes it should. But, if the Big-D *has* to die, then by god, it should do so against a worthy opponent! How 'bout, say, a Vorcha Cruiser sound?

Much better, or like I proposed on another comment to one of :iconthefirsfleet:'s pictures, the idea of Soran having had a crazed army of followers and Picard or Riker manages to trap them on the stardrive section to kill them when it blows up and then using the saucer section to literally run Soran down when Picard and Kirk manage to trap him out in the open where he'll be an easy target to be run over by the saucer section as it slides out.
