Could you take Voyager?

Imagine you're the baddie, imagine that kathy is your dread foe, and imagine that you want to take that ship, and use it for your own devices...

How are you going to do it?

Oh.

"You" can be anyone, but the "You" you chose to be does limit your options and resources while planning this undertaking, because you have to admit that there's a marvellous disparagement between what the Hirogen bring to the table compared to say the Think Tank or the Malon, or even a Maquis popular uprising.

I'm going to assume for this hypothetical scenario that the deflector dish is disabled?

I'm a Q. I snap my fingers, and it's done. No muss, no fuss (except from Janeway, of course).

Re: Could you take Voyager?

But what does a Q need with a starship?

Now let's see...if I wanted to take over Voyage, who would I be? Ah, I know. I'd be Scorpius and use my skills at cunning manipulation and devious planning to remove the ship from Janeway's control and use it for my devious purposes, namely attempting to capture and modify Borg technology to use against my enemy the Scarrans.

Hey, you did say I could be anybody. But if I was limited to Trek characters, I'd choose someone with a similar amount of Magnificent Bastardry. Probably Garak. Yep, definitely Garak.

Why shouldn't Q have a starship if he/she/it wants one? Not everything is about need, y'know. Sometimes it's just because somebody wants a new toy.

Or maybe Q asked Kathy nicely to do something and she said no. So the answer was to take over the ship and promise to give it back after she complies with the request.

Re: Could you take Voyager?

Get within transporter range, then use my transporter to beam things into or out of the Voyager crews' heads.

Then salvage the ship for parts and materials because I don't like its appearance.

Re: Could you take Voyager?

I'm a tribble hiding in Naomi Wildman's pile of stuffed toys, under the Flotter doll. Everyone has to go into stasis because of a radiation thingie to which I am immune. The Doctor only hangs out in the stasis pod bay, the sick bay and bridge (where he plays Captain Doctor while swiveling in Janeway's chair).

By the time everyone wakes up every last bit of the ship is stuffed to capacity with tribbles. They can't stop us in time, everyone suffocates to death.

Re: Could you take Voyager?

And what have the Tribbles been eating? Have they somehow learned to work the replicators? 'Cause whatever's in the aeroponics bay or the kitchen wouldn't be enough...

They are eating each other. But they are still outbreeding their own cannibalism.

Re: Could you take Voyager?

the Borg Queen could have done it had she employed a shred of logic in their dealings.

Just transmit a message through the collective-"send five or six Borg Cubes and surround Voyager. Take her intact. Send Janeway to me so that we can posture and pout at each other."

That's impossible! Swiveling captain's chairs fell out of fashion Between NX-74205 and NCC-74656.

You can't see Kathryn ordering the the ship to routinely spin on it's axis now and then to counterfeit her missing swivel?

If a Malon were to try and take Voyager, he or she would probably be some sort of deranged eco-terrorist dedicated to destroying Malon corporate society. Voyager's technology can safely neutralize the by-products of Malon energy generation, or even provide the means to replace their current industrial base entirely. But of course the whole point is that the Malon reject alternatives because their economy depends upon the waste tankers as integral to its structure. The Malon government might destroy Voyager, but it's too dangerous to take intact. Someone might use it to clean things up, and then (so the Malon will plead) mothers to little tankermens' children will be saying "I know you wanted to go to college and have regular meals and all, but daddy hasn't got a job anymore, thanks to the environmentalists".

I'd be some sort of radical hippie Malon who wants to bring down the system and destroy the economy so as to save the environment. Not Malon Prime's environment, which is fine, but someone elses. Because Mother Zogg is the only one the Zoggians have. My band of desperate radicals - let's call them Green'n'Clean or something - would aim to hijack Voyager and bring its advanced technology to our secret environmentally-friendly base, before transmitting all the schematics and data back to our comrades in arms on Malon Prime. Then the detoxifying shall begin. It will be... radical.

Don't ask me how we're going to hijack the ship.
