>captain, Borg cube detected in our sector. we're the only ship in range sir.

>ensign plot a collision course for the borg cube. maximum warp on my mark. the relativistic effects of us ramming it with out mas will surely destroy it. ladies and gentlemen it's be an honor serving with you. mark

ez pz. especialy consideirng the ship is going to be destroyed trying to fight the borg cube conventionally any way.

seems the borg weren't all that powerful at all. wouldn't last a day against the klingons for example, considering how many of them would be willing to do kamikaze tactics as described above.

General Nit-Picking Thread

In Voyager season 1 episode 1 there's a fire in sickbay, why didn't the computer erect a forcefield to suffocate the fire like in that TNG episode with the Irish http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Up_The_Long_Ladder_(episode) ?

See title. Now I know Voyager is often overshadowed by the other series, notably DS9 and TNG, but it still beats Discovery by a long shot.

Anyone else think that the writers shouldn't have had the Vidiians obtain a cure to the phage? IMO they should have set them up to attempt to invade Qo'nos in the alpha quadrant after discovering that Klingons have immunity to the phage. Voyager would have to take responsibly of accidentally introducing the Klingons to the Vidiians (the latter who are infamous for their organ-harvesting practices). It could be neat to watch the Klingons face the threat of having their entire race harvested in a similar way in which the Borg attempted to assimilate Earth.

Aaaaaaaaaaah Mr Morden! Tell me, why do your employers refuse a Babylon 5 thread?

Captain Picard Returns?

Looks like Picard is returning in a brand new Star Trek series. However, isn't he old as FUCK right now? He's 78 and could literally die any minute. I don't see this series going very far. Plus, with the latest introduction of the pozzed Odyssey series, it's safe to say that any new St series will be pozzed as well. After all Picard is just another Trump-hating celebrity who would agree to anything that involves subverting the science fiction we all love with some queer revisionism.

Now that /strek/ hates TNG, how do you feel about TOS

Does the original series still hold up or are you guys going to hate it too?

Similarities of Vulcans and Romulans

So I recently finished rewatching Amok Time, and I recall hearing Spock explain to Kirk that the pon farr is part of an ancient tradition that comes even before the time of Surak. This got me wondering about the Romulans, whom we know left Vulcan during the Time of Awakening. Is it possible that the Romulans still wrestle with the pon farr, and that they might retain some of the same Vulcan traditions for dealing with it? What else do the Romulans and Vulcans continue to share in common with one another, in terms of culture and tradition, if anything at all?

Lewd Trek

I thought I would start a general porn dump thread, but some of these lewds are so hilarious I feel this is going to turn into a thinly veiled comedy thread.

2019 Summer Infinity Cup

GREETINGS /strek/

The Infinity Cup is returning once again, and 8chan's boards will be fighting it out on the pitch to claim divegrass supremacy. As a board that has participated in the Cup at one point or another in its history, you are invited to the reveal stream for 2019 Summer edition of the Cup. On Saturday June 22nd, at 3 PM EDT/7 PM UTC, on cytu.be/r/8cup I'll be giving you guys an early look at the Cup's 5th edition, which will include revamped aesthetics, team stadiums and other quality of life improvements I've figured out how to do in PES 17. Hopefully this will get anons back on board with the Cup, considering it has struggled mightily since its 2nd incarnation.

So how is it going to go down? I'll be staging a couple of exhibition matches between teams using their rosters from the last Cup, and we'll shitpost our merry way through the stream. Once the stream ends, entries will be open for the Cup, and boards can start putting together/editing their rosters and kits. Entries will close in early July, the field will be determined, and the Group Draw will take place approximately a week before the Cup kicks off in August. I'm also hoping to possibly introduce managers for the Cup, although I'm still working out the details to keep this from devolving into a namefag dick measuring contest. I hope you all will tune in, and in case you aren't caught up on your board's history, I've provided some links below to get you caught up:
