Re: What caused the Romulan isolation?

In VOY ‘Hunters’ we get a startling bit of information concerning the stations making up this sensor network. KIM: Commander, if my sensors are right, that station is using a quantum singularity as it's power source. PARIS: A black hole? KIM: It's a tiny one, probably about a centimetr...

Funny, but seen it before and I'm pretty sure those answers are not real. If they were real, it's highly unlikely any answer would have a sequel (the "come naked" joke.)

I can't read the language that site is in, but as for the obelisks -- they are some remnants / artifacts of a super-advanced civilization. Contact with them has the effect of transferring advanced knowledge or power. It made the apes warlike to eventually evolve into men. It made humans able to tran...

Uh, not everyone has maximum experience, efficiency and strategy. Even Average can be hard if you don't do things properly. Personally I still play on Hard because I'm STILL learning things even after many games.

I don't know, Q's statement about Guinan not being what she appears to be seems pretty definitive. More than that - the "dealings" she had with the Q were 100 years BEFORE she encountered the Nexus. That pretty much proves that the Nexus isn't the reason for Q's statement, even if it could have also...

Ha, I just don't see Guinan or any El-Aurian having that kind of power. I see it more as a Q-counterspell. Their entire planet couldn't stop the Borg invasion. Nor could they apparently see it coming, and flee in advance. I read an interesting theory just now -- Guinan (and presumably Soren) have sp...

Yes but since the Federation is 4000-8000LY wide, that kind of difference is expected. They weren't at Starbase 185 when they were flung. 8) Starbase 185... must be a lonely place. Just sitting out there at the edge of the Federation... waiting for the Borg to attack. :lol: (Someone should write a n...

Haha. I can just imagine El-Aurian Borg facing down Q and stoically holding their fingers up. :lol: Anyway, we haven't seen El-Aurians use any overt powers other than defensive or perceptive ones: Guinan - senses changes in timeline (TNG - Yesterday's Enterprise), senses Q's presence (TNG - Q Who), ...

geon - interesting. Perhaps the Federation is 8000LY long and 4000LY wide? Anyway, if I use 6000LY as an intermediate radius, that gives about 1.4% of the Alpha quadrant. Incidentally, inside a 1.4% area of a quadrant there could be maybe 300 million stars. Not many life-supporting planets out there...

I guess "the other side of the galaxy" is a pretty open-ended phrase, considering that the Delta quadrant borders the Beta quadrant, and that according to the graphic shown, Voyager was somewhat close to the border of the Beta quadrant by then - say maybe 20% of a quadrant away from the border. Stil...

I looked up some info about the theorized shape of the Milky Way. There doesn't seem to be agreement on it. Many say it has 6 spiral arms and a somewhat barred center, others think it's irregular "like a warped vinyl record" but their theories as to the cause are the usual stupidity - dark matter of...

Definitely feudal, I'd say feudal oligarchy. Warring houses, some of which have seats on the high council.

Movies suck for a lot of reasons. I don't think piracy is high on the list. More than ever, movies compete with each other with flashy visuals and CGI. That costs money. The only way to be sure they will get their money back is to make a "sure thing." That sure thing is usually sure crap. Same with ...

Interesting graphic of the transwarp hubs from VOY ‘Endgame’. Seven mentioned in the episode that there were 6 hubs in the Galaxy…….only 4 are shown in this graphic (if the blue dots do represent hubs). What happened to the other 2?? The motion graphic starts where Voyager ...
