Who would win in a fight, Species 8472 or a Changling?
Sounds like a thread starter.
When I started at TrekBBS, I would have made that thread but now I avoid making speculation threads. They generally turn into fan favorite decisions. I'd post in one though.

I'm going with Changeling, too. Only being solid for 16 hours a day sounds awesome right now. I would immediately change into someone that isn't so tired that they aren't looking forward to work.

^ I tried that for a while, but it didn't seem real enough. So tried the human thing. Kicking my ass, but isn't that what being human is all about? Still choose Changeling.

No different than my real life, but I'd be smarter, stronger, and live a lot longer. Not a bad tradeoff.

I'd say Vulcan, because all babes are hot on that planet.

Then I remembered the 7 year rule.

So I'd choose Deltan, but it is already taken.

I was about to say Orion, and I'm sure I'd be happy there, but something is missing...

Edo it is. 80's style babes, oil massages, and most importantly, I'd get to kill Wesley.
