My favorite retcon for that is that Lore's ship was the minelayer.

I don't know... get the A-Team and MacGyver together on that problem, and I think they could make it happen.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

My uncle's truck was a real bomb.

no, the thingy from Descent that the individualists flew
Are we allowed to call that the Liberator-class now?

I mean, it's not like the canon is going to be using it anytime soon.

Fine by me, although I described the Liberator as just having a similar design to that ship rather than being the same. Related in the same way that, say, the Galaxy and Nebula classes are.

Re: Anyone interested in a "Borg Ship Recognition Manual"?

To answer the original question, NO, from a creative stand point it's pretty rubbish (I never understood why the Borg had it's own subsection section in the alien ships section in the Star Trek Fact Files a few years back) from a marketing standpoint it's equally as rubbish given that non fiction trek books struggle to make large enough sales and I fail to think of a desent way to actually sell the concept, plus I'm sure all the information on Borg ship designs can be found either online, or in books, so, if you really want this resourse at your disposal, print off all the relivant pieces, but it in a binder or something similar and bobs your uncle, you'll have it.

Because people would have complained if one major alien power had been left out?
