Why Star Trek canon is cooler than Star Wars and Doctor Who.

 Hey Trekkers Spacerguy here. Remember our Borg buddies in 2373 Star Trek First Contact? History records Jean Luc Picard's USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E racing after the Borg Queens time travelling sphere to protect the timeline in the Alpha Quadrant. Pesky Borgs wanted to assimilate earth in the past 2063 so Picard had to act fast.

Picard pursues the Time Sphere into the Vortex to stop the damage!

The Borg Queen realized after Wolf 359 war with Federation and Worf's tough little ship spelt game over! 40 ships whooped the automatons real good didn't they? lol However a number of drones including the Borg Queen played by Alice Krige didn't give up, remember the Borg don't feel pity, they don't negotiate and will never surrender. 

I am the Borg Queen. You Will Obey Me!

Resist and You WILL be Assimilated! 


 The pure magnificence of the Borg's stratagem took us on a joyride because by the time Picard blew the sphere to bits the fun was just beginning. So how did our Borg buddies escape through a temporal vortex and turn earths happy ball of beings into cyborgs? 

STAR TREK, Star Wars or Doctor Who -
decide now Trekkers and Trekkies

I am Jean Luc Picard how can this be happening to me?


The USS Enterprise-E crew soon discover Earth assimilation in a past timeline has occurred. Is it too late? Eradicating this point in time is critical! but Picards sovereign class starship is right where the Queens big plan takes shape. Heck even Data joins in the fun and why not eh? When more reinforcements from the Delta Quadrant arrives construction of the Interplexing Beacon hails more Borg buddies from the Delta quadrant, at least thats the idea!


Captain, I believe I am feeling... anxiety. It is an intriguing sensation


Borg drone passion for network transwarp conduits and technology took over "Captain Ahab's" ship in the 24th century. Lets face it, Picard wanted revenge,  I mean how would you feel about being experimented with cybernetic devices throughout your body and then we have the ultimate showdown between Picard and and Worf on the Enterprise-E bridge.

WORF: With all due respect, sir, ...I believe you are allowing your personal experience with the Borg to influence your judgement. PICARD: You're afraid. You want to destroy the ship and run away. You coward. WORF: If you were any other man I would kill you where you stand.



Long story short trekkers, The Queen hadn't counted on Dr Zefram Cochrane revolutionary space travel with the invention of the warp drive or Mr Worf blowing the Enterprise-E beacon to smithereens! 


Is Resistance always futile?  Worf stopped himself from killing Picard. Why?

What did Picard say to Mr Worf on the bridge of the Enterprise-E which enraged the Klingon?

1. You're a coward now get off my bridge.

2. Your afraid, you want to destroy the ship and run away, you coward

3. Fight hand to hand but go down with the ship Mr Worf, thats an order!


LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, MY TREKKER FRIENDS.

Cyborg Arnie

C is for Cyborg but what are they? A cyborg is a living being or partly humanoid robot with cybernetic devices implanted throughout their bodies. The Borg Picard "Locutus" and Seven of Nine aka "Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One" became walking talking pieces of hardware in Star Trek.

Going back, early science fiction had few memorable leading cyborgs, androids or robots if any. Instead we had creatures like Frankenstein and Herman from the Munsters with mad scientists switching their brains out.



Cyborgs, Androids and robots have unique qualities. My personal favorite is the classic cyborg "T-800" Cyberdyne Model played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator. In simple Sci-Fi terms these guys are killer cyborgs disguised with a skin of living flesh covering an indestructible exo-skeleton. Whats terrifyingly insane about the "T800" Cyborg is its ability to look human and pass as one of us!

The upcoming Terminator 5 directed by Alan Taylor hits movie theatres in July. Arnie is returning as an aging Soldier of War starring in "Terminator: Genisys," He's Back!


Who do you think would win in a fight, Arnie's Genisys Terminator "T800" or Star Trek's Android Commander Data?

Which A.I. lifeforms strikes the most terror into your human heart?  Will you be back to see Arnie's Terminator 5?
