Re: Would you rather?

I'd find more enjoyment writing.

Would you rather spend the rest of your life looking like a Klingon, a Ferengi, a Cardassian, a Hirogen, or a Jem'Hadar?

Re: Would you rather?

A Cardassian, the neck ridges are cool.

Would you rather be in the "Parallels" alternate universe where the Borg assimilated Earth or the "Yesterday's Enterprise" alternate universe where the UFP and Klingons are at war?

Re: Would you rather?

I'll take "Parallels" and the Borg. I can't respect a universe where the Klingons are defeating the Federation. I expect I wouldn't last long in either universe, anyway.

Would you rather see an episode where your favorite starship explores the Pleiades, the Crab Nebula, or the Vela Pulsar (with plenty of visual effects, of course)?

Re: Would you rather?

The Crab Nebula in HD sounds fascinating.

Would you rather be stuck in the Badlands, the Expanse, or Borg space for an hour?

Probably the Expanse, especially since it ceased to be so dangerous at the end.

If you had to be the full-time personal servant for one of the Captains, would you rather in be TOS Kirk, Picard or Janeway?

Re: Would you rather?

Picard. It's safe to assume that all three would treat me well, so I'll go with the one whom I find the most interesting as a person (and who has the coolest ships of the three )

Which black ops agency would you rather work for: Section 31, the Tal Shiar, or the Obsidian Order? (I guess there's also "Klingon Intelligence", but we never heard much about them, except for the time three of their operatives were exposed and thrown in the brig by Odo...)

Section 31 as a human. I feel the others would brainwash me. If I was the same species as my choice, then the Tal Shiar. I think they know more than the other two.

Would you rather be sent to the Star Wars galaxy with Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, or Archer with their ship and crew?

That's a good one. It depends on what the objective would be...to experience adventure, or to get out alive?
I'll boil it down to Kirk, Sisko and Picard for this one...

Kirk would fit right into a place like that. He's got someone who can do a mind meld. He's a risk taker so he'll pull any stop to get his crew out of there.

Picard and his team tend to work together more than the other crews. I don't know how they would deal with concepts like the force. But this crew is so smart they can solve almost anything.

Sisko is a lot like Kirk, and he has a shape shifter on his team. Plus he has the Defiant.

Kirk by a slim margin...he's most likely to get his crew out of there the fastest.


If you had to remove certain things from Trek canon and film library so that those events never happened, would you rather take out...

The 3rd and 4th seasons of The Next Generation
The Dominion and the entire Dominion War arc from DS9
The 2nd and 3rd seasons of TOS leaving only the first season

2nd and 3rd seasons of TOS. I like TNG and DS9 better.

Would you rather explain to Picard how you got the Enterprise destroyed in a few hours, or explain to Starfleet how you got Kirk killed?

Explaining to Picard. Geordi and Troi did it!

Would you rather, in the Star Wars universe, deal with the Borg, the Dominion, or Species 8472?

I'll go with the Borg; although energy shielding is comparatively primitive, the level of robotics might prove an advantage, putting real people out of the way (or allowing them to perform other functions).

Whom would you rather have as your attorney: Dukat or Weyoun?

Dukat, he can talk anyone into doing anything with enough time.

Would you rather have Garak or Guinan as your attorney?

Garak. The man is the king liar, and has proven he can get around legal problems before. Six months for attempting to hijack the Defiant, genocide an entire race, resisting arrest and assaulting a Starfleet officer? That he probably didn't even serve the whole sentence given he was back rather early on in season five.

Would you rather have Riker or Archer as your attorney?

I think Riker would be more thorough. Archer sucks at speeches anyway.

Would you rather have Spock or Tuvok as your attorney

Re: Would you rather?

Tuvok. Both are quite intelligent and could probably excel in the role, but Tuvok's job actually has been in security/law enforcement for some time.

You are a civilian who finds themselves trapped on an alien world, forced to navigate your way through a jungle filled with both natural hazards and hostile humanoids of some sort, in order to reach safety. Your companion is one of the franchise's first officers. Who would you rather it be - Spock (TOS or Abrams), Riker, Kira, Chakotay, or T'Pol?
