Janeway every day and twice on Sundays. I'd even lie there through one of her self-righteous lectures.

Would you rather try learning to operate a Jem'Hadar warship or a Klingon bird-of-prey?

A bird-of-prey. I like the way it banks and turns.

Would you rather design the next Klingon ship, Dominion ship, Cardassian ship, or Romulan ship?

A Klingon ship --they seem more creative in their different designs. And they are weapons oriented--it would seem more fun to design one of theirs.



As a single ship in a battle against five Jem Hadar 'bug' ships would you rather have...

A powerful Romulan ship with a working cloak but weaker shields, but can escape (they cant see through the cloak).

A Galaxy Class ship that can hit multiple targets in any direction, improved phasers, but weaker shields (no shield enhancements).

A Defiant class ship with powerful phasers, tough shields but can only fire in one direction and has no cloak and can only go at impulse?

The Romulan ship. The Galaxy Class can take their shots but is a kamikaze away from destruction and the Defiant can only take so much, five ship might be one too many. I'll go the covert route.

Would you rather accept the blame for the despicable act you caused in starfleet or cover it up, knowing no one can trace it to you?

Cover it up. I have no conscience.

Would you rather be on a planet and be hit by a photon torpedoe or a crashing ship??

Re: Would you rather?

If I'm on a planet and a photon torpedo hits me directly, I'm a goner. If I'm on a ship that's going to crash, I think I have slightly better odds of getting out alive, depending in the circumstances. I'll take the ship.

If you were trapped alone in a drifting shuttlepod, waiting to be rescued, would you rather pin your hopes of rescue on Riker, Chakotay or Trip?

Trip. I think he tries the hardest when it comes to saving someone who isn't senior staff. Though if I were senior staff, I'd pick Riker.

Would you rather, as a Q, "trial" Picard, Sisko, Janeway, Archer, or Kirk in an task of your choosing?

Re: Would you rather?

To the best of my knowledge, Archer's the only one in the list not "tested" by a Q (if you count Trelane, with Kirk). So--let's try out the new.

Would you rather work with Sisko on his solar-sail ship, or Tom Paris on the Delta Flyer?

With Paris. Zooming around in the Delta Flyer sounds fun.

After being released by the Borg you gain control of a cube's distribution node. Would you rather free all the aliens on the cube or make them your hive?

Free them. Being part of a collective sounds awful.

If you had to live permanently on the base/vehicle of one show, would you rather live out your years on the TNG Enterprise, the DS9 station, or the Abramsverse Enterprise?

I would choose DS9, but it was just too damned risky and tense there. The Cardassians, The Klingon attack, the Dominion threatening to come through it at any moment...

I don't know enough about the Abram's universe yet to make a solid opinion.

The Enterprise, because it was made for comfort, and relatively quiet, but just enough adventure to be cool.

If you could see a Trek character get slobbering, obnoxious, clothes-throwing-off drunk at a party, would you rather see it be-

Captain Janeway
Dr. Crusher
T'Pol
Worf
Lt.Uhura
Spock

I'll say T'pol, I cant help but feel she would be hilarious once her TRUE feelings were laid out.

"Yo Trip, you are fuh-iiiine baybeh....Jonny, stop looking at my ass on the bridge when I scan for lifesigns....wooo!" *collapses*


At university, you have to sit through a weekly, 3-hour lecture for the entire semester but you get to pick what it is....

1. Data: Fascinating Nebulae - Their composition.
2. Janeway: Ethics & Morality
3. Troi: Empathizing with others.
4. T'pol: Drug Addiction
5. Keiko: Botany
6. Chakoty: Native Belief Systems.

Which do you choose?

Re: Would you rather?

Data and the nebulae. I'd listen to lectures on nebulae anyway.

For a 12-hour day of filming, would you rather wear 24th-century Klingon, Ferengi, Cardassian, or Jem'Hadar makeup? Assume you have a small part with a few lines but the script requires you to be on set most of the day.

A Klingon, just to be a Klingon. Though, acting-wise, I'd make a crappy Klingon.

Would you rather be a main character for an episode of any series where you die at the end or have a non-speaking role for 5 random episodes?

Re: Would you rather?

Just being me, I'd like the 5 episodes better just so I can be around the show more longer. And who knows, I could turn into Morn or Ayala or something. If I was a professional actor padding a resume the answer might be different.

Would you rather write a Trek episode script or direct someone else's story?
