Assimilate this

Do you think the Borg could assimilate the Sheliak or Excalbians?

I'd like to see them try it on a Medusan first.

Re: Assimilate this

Excalbians, sure, why not? Nanoprobes might like silicon-based lifeforms, too.

Sheliak, no, don't think so. Their lawyers would never allow assimilation. They'd keep the Borg tied up in courts for decades.

Must you give a sarcastic answer to all of my questions?

I think the Borg would subscribe Shakespeare in regards to lawyers.

"First thing we'll do is assimilate all the lawyers".

Is it necessary to create a thread about this?

I want to see the Borg try and assimilate a Giant Space Jellyfish from "Encounter at Farpoint"

I don't know, maybe try to compare the physiologies of Excalbians and Sheliak with physiologies of species the Borg have assimilated, or likely have assimilated. You did a good job speaking about the Excalbians.

Of course not. Though I found it interesting. Was it necessary for you to create your threads?

I've never started a thread. If I did, however, I wouldn't pick a dubious topic and get defensive when people joked about it.

Ok, fine. I just think that topics like this are more interesting than "Who's your favorite captain?," but maybe you disagree.

Constant joking is annoying.

No argument here, but the joking would happen less often if you didn't respond to it.
