Were the Borg just a rebrand of the Crystaline Entity?

Both fill the same role as a force of nature that replaces colonies with craters. Both are too foreign for communication. Then as soon as the Crystaline Entity gets blowed up, Lore goes to chill with the Borg instead.

Nah, planet destroying forces of nature exist throughout Trek. From the Doomsday Machine to V'Ger to Species 8472.

The Borg WERE a reimagiation of the aliens from TNG Conspiracy. The Crystalline Entity comes back in a later TNG episode (season 5 or 6 I think).

Man, made it all the way through DS9. What a journey. Truly the pinnacle of 90's science fiction. But it seemed kinda rushed in the end - the Dominion War was wrapped up pretty nicely, but then there was the crazy stuff with the pa' wraiths at the end that seemed to blow over in like 5 minutes.

Also, why does Sisko come back like a year later in the expanded Star Trek lore? Looking at Memory Beta always makes me laugh and cry.

otherwise not too in2 the political intrigue, it gets a little repetitive and TNG had better trippy, self-contained episodes. It has the best characters tho imo

After looking through the board, I am surprised that nobody has mentioned the whole "NX-01 showing up in the new Beyond Trailer" I mean, I know it's the JJverse and we don't like to acknowledge it as being an actual thing, but I refuse to believe that I am the only one of us getting at least a demi-chub from seeing the old girl show up after 11 years. They did establish that the JJverse splits from the main Trek timeline after ENT, so everything that happened is still canon.

Alright. So i've been slamming beers and resin all night so here's a thread.

An important part of trek has always been how it tackles contemporary issues and sort of steers viewers moral compasses.

TOS discussed race and gender issues often with the occasional cold war discussion.

TNG and DS9 delved more into geopolitical conflicts, rape, aids, addiction and a ton of stuff

So I guess what I'm getting at is: What contemporary issues should the 2017 Trek touch on? And are we as viewers too used to that sort of thing and would we repulse at the slightest bit of preachyness? Can we trust modern day tv people to be smart about their allegories or have they never been smart about that type of thing and over time those type of episodes seem smarter than they actually were at the time? Should they even worry about it?

But they got on anyway. Which is how it works in reality. O'Brien is from Southern Ireland and while they hate the English (not so much the Scots or Welsh) they're too busy hating the traitorous northern prossies to focus on well.. anything at all. The Northern Irish always sound that annoyed though. They just do. It's their accent.

I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Great Link, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the Federation, and I have over 300 confirmed forms. I am trained in espionage warfare and I’m the top changeling in the entire Dominion. You are nothing to me but just another solid. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in this Quadrant, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over subspace? Think again, solid. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across DS9 and your warp signature is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, humanoid. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, solid. I can be anything, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred forms, and that’s just with my bare liquid. Not only am I extensively trained in shapeshifting combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Jem'Hadar and I will use them to their full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the galaxy, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking communications. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn humanoid. I will shit Founder fluid all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, solid.
