Brave words. I've heard them before, from thousands of species across thousands of worlds, since long before you were created. But, now they are
... all Borg :D

probably because they haven't reverse-engineered Borg tech, even though the Gallade-C was one of the late testers, its still very good against Borg...Tholians though....

The Impact of this day, stretched across every Borg story that came after it, and always will. Especially if you read the books; they carry everything on, and it is worth reading trust me, they attack again, in force, and wipe out planets, no prisoners :S And this is why the Borg are scary.

I always considered the Borg to be a force of nature. Okay, I added some spiritual/religious themes to my Polarisverse, then again, after DS9, who cares :D Anyway, in my interpretation, the Borg is the personification of entropy, it was, is and will be. Yes, you can wipe it out, do a Caeliar on them, but in a time, maybe a decade, maybe a millenium, the Borg will be back.

Yeah, got fragged by Andorian terrorists.

Nayy, Sir, I refuse to accept this new wave of Trek books. Worf having his upteenth woman, Picard and Beverly having a son (how the frag? They are around 80 by the time of those books!), Riker captaining a flying zoo, Ezri Dax of all people getting a transwarp ship... bleedin' hell no! And don't get me started on Vanguard! That took a bigger dump on the spirit of TOS then Abrams ever could.

Sorry, fan rant, I just had to bitch a bit... :D

That Miranda never stood a chance. Tactical Cubes are nothing to take on without at least a sovereign class or two deus ex machinas in your pocket. (Being friends with Q never hurts, just as an added bonus)

I love their shape though. Makes me glad they upgraded them to the Shikar class in STO. On that note EXETER CLASS FTW.

Yupp, Sisko's USS Saratoga.

That was the Saratoga, which was Benjamin Sisko's assigned vessel (he was the XO). Saratoga got a fatal 'direct hit' just moments after the Excelsior-class Melbourne got torn apart. It's in the opening of DS9's pilot story, "Emissary".

That sequence, where the surviving crew and civilians of Saratoga are struggling to abandon ship before the warp-core blows, really emphasises the panic and despair in ways that the Enterprise-D, arriving at the battle site and finding all the dead starships adrift, could not.
