Replace "Borg" with "retroactive contnuity" and there you go:

Replace "retroactive continuity" with "Walmart."

They invade our space and we fall back.
They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back.

Even though Kirk was drinking with the Klingons and making diplomatic small talk with them at the end of TFF, he still didn't trust their species, hadn't forgotten their previous actions, nor forgave them for the murder of his son at the hands of one of their officers.

Re: Your own personal continuity

My personal continuities:

1. Star Trek original/Animated series universe
2. TMP universe (where universe #1 may have been an over-dramatized version of some of the same events)
3. Bennett/Meyer universe (for fun imagine episodes of the original series with the crew wearing the maroon Hornblower uniforms)
4. Berman universe (TNG/DS9/VOY)
5. Abrams universe (I think ENT works better as a prequel to this than the Bermanverse)

Michael Jan Friedman's Starfleet: Year 1 is how it happened.

Many other Starfleet ships have personnel specially trained and equipped for dangerous away missions, instead of sending the entire senior staff plus cannon fodder.

I feel that Captain Kirk wasn't just the commander of the transport vessel that took investigation teams to destinations, he was the overall mission commander.

He was leading the missions.

So he went down, with the best science officer, the best medical doctor available, sometime some specialist and a few "bodyguards."

If Kirk were killed, Sulu would take the ship to the closest starbase and acquire a new commander, who would also lead missions down on to planets.

Kirk wasn't just a bus driver.

Had an idea like that years ago: The command crew, most of whom serve as department heads, are themselves the ship's primary exploration team. Their departments and the crew as a whole serve as support staff and physical auxiliaries, but the command crew are the main "astronauts" intended to do the most important planetside work.

It doesn't make military sense, of course; but hey, neither does plenty on Trek anyway.

The NX-01 didn't go to Kronos in Broken Bow, but a distant Klingon outpost where the Chancellor happened to be visiting.

Re: Your own personal continuity

The original 3 seasons of Star Trek exist in it's own universe.

Everything else exists, more or less, in the same universe. The original is still my fave, but there's just no way to reconcile the style with everything else. It's especially noticeable in TMP, Relics, TaT.

The JJverse is it's own universe, as it should've been.

Re: Your own personal continuity

Another personal continuity is that Star Trek Nemesis never happened. While I like to think Riker did Captain the USS Titan, but Data did not die.

All of Trekdom takes place in the imagination of an autistic boy living in Boston named Tommy Westphall. The Enterprise as we know it only exists inside a plastic snowglobe in his bedroom.

If it's any consolation, in the novels and comics he gets better.

On DS9, the Defiant interior is much smaller than it seems owing to the use of wide angle lens.
