I actually disagree, yes expansion is their primary objective, but their collecting and synthesizing of the technology and scientific knowledge in the drive of "perfection" could very well have a purpose.

They're trying to become god or something close. It wouldn't be the first time that a species transcended into godhood, though you get the impression that this was the work of hundreds of thousands of years and probably a lot of dumb luck in other cases.

The Borg have decided that the most efficient means to accomplish this is to do away with individuality and pool all resources they can accumulate. It seems to be working, its estimated that the Borg have existed as a collective for less than a thousand years and already they've expanded in terms of science and technology beyond almost any other power in that short time. They could be on track to rival the Q continuum in only a few more centuries at that rate of expansion.

I suspect that is why Q introduced the Federation to the Borg to begin with, it was part of a scheme to pit the other super powers of the galaxy against them, because when the Borg are in a position of power on par with the Q, somehow I don't think they're going to stop expanding, they don't know anything else and the Q are aware of this.

Q even warns his son against provoking the Borg, they've probably gone to great lengths to prevent the Borg from becoming aware of them. It wouldn't suprise me if the Borg were already capable of indirectly harming the continuum and had some rudimentary defense against the Q's powers.

Or maybe the Q are the result of the Borg, once they attained godhood their collective fractured into assorted entities which became the Q.

Fuck I dunno I'm very high right now

I think it's an assessment of Star Trek's assorted "Power Trios."

The DS9 one is a little hard to pin down, but that's just because DS9 had a lot of great pairings and group moments, it again breaks the formula. It had the best duos since Kirk/Spock though. Ben and Dax, Ben and Jake, Odo and Quark, O'Brien and Bashir, Bashir and Garak... all of them worked great with each other.

I think you're onto something

but it's more like

Generic Slut/ Philosopher / Logician

that's the combo that makes star trek STAR TRAK

TOS is spot on, TNG is spot on, VOY is close.. I'd say Kes&Seven / Chipotle&sometimesNeelix / Tuvok&Seven

But in DS9 Quark is the philosopher FOR SURE, Dax is the Logician, but who is the slut?? Julian probably, cause he's bi as fuck or maybe even Kira because reasons

Enterprise had no strong philosopher, and they merged the slut and the logician (which VOY did to some degree as well, but Tuvok was also logical as fuck) and that's why enterprise was shit. Also because their theme song was made of dicks and singsong. And also because the whole idea was we see the bridge between the modern world and trek but that idea was betrayed in episode 1&2, the time shuffle boogalloo where we invalidate what Word and Picard said about first contact with the Klingons for no good reason and also have transporters and phasers because fuck you that's why

TNG eschews the triad formula in favor of pairs.
Picard and Data.
Picard and Riker.
Picard and Crusher.
Riker and Troi.
Data and Geordi
Data and Yar

In fact all the TNG+ (including Enterprise) series do that for the most part. Even the AbramsTrek made it more of a Kirk and Spock Bromance than the Kick/Spock/McCoy triad it is supposed to be.

It's clear that the Dominion would use rape as a shock tactic, especially against telepaths.

It seems like the Dominion's MO is more to conquer and then allow some autonomy, so raping the population would not foster that kind of relationship. Plus, do the Jem Hadar even have...parts?

Now, the Klingons I could see using rape as a tactic. The Romulans have some evidence. The Commander who fathered Sela could be said to have coerced Sela's mother into sex which is a kind of soft rape.

I fucking love Kai Winn. I used to hate her, because she's so passive-bitchy and witty, but I've grown to love her. The final straw was Episode 25 of Season 5, where she meets with Weyoun (the Vorta played by Jeffrey Combs), and after a very polite discussion, grabs his ear to understand his character, and then declares that they are nothing alike.

Post characters that you initially disliked but came to appreciate. Gul Dukat, Garak, Tasha Yar, both of TNG's doctors, and Captain Krazy Janeway are all characters I've grown to like.
