Re: What are your thoughts on Gary Whitta's "Origins of the Borg" scri

There were some oddities that would have been edited out I'm sure, like the newly awakened ancient borg alien dude saying, "well if you guys say that I'm safe.." to Janeway and the Doctor. Aliens, women and serious starfleet people don't use words like "guys", only male buddies like Tom and Harry and Julian and Miles use words like "guys".

Language in Star Trek is oddly priggish and when it's not it's making a point about how relaxed and friendly the speakers are.

"Damnit Spock. God damnit!" Kirk ST:V
