Re: If You Were A Bad Guy In Trek

I'd sit on my hands for 25 years doing nothing before starting my revenge plan, stealing a doomsday weapon, trying to talk to whales, randomly deciding to attack a starship, subsequently finding God in the process, throwing the galaxy into a full-scale war (all along plotting with the very enemies that I want the war with), launching a missle into a sun, going back in time, stealing some magic cosmic rays, and, attempting to destroy Earth.

Oh, and if all that doesn't work, I'd send my evil cloud to attack Earth.

Re: If You Were A Bad Guy In Trek

Avoid the cliche and not go for Earth or Vulcan right off the bat.

1st thing: destroy the Enterprise; sabotage her while she laid over for repairs or resupply. Then I'd stage things so the major powers got pull this why and that fighting various wars; staging hit and run attacks against civlian infrastructure under a false flag to keep them inflamed and at each others throats.

Then everyone soften up then I'd start taking out major homeworlds: using protomatter warheads and genesis torpedoes. Cut off Earth and Vulcan using omega-particle bombs.

Augment Civil Rights Movement.

If I wanted to hurt the Federation, I would hit them where they hurt the most, their sense of moral superiority. Their foundational core beliefs include extreme anti-transhumanism that goes far beyond mere prejudice and their history includes what can only be described as genocide against genetically engineered humans due to those prejudices that they refuse to abandon. As Quark once pointed out, the Federation's Hew-mons like to think that they're morally supperior to everyone else, even other hew-mons. They can rationalize away one Starfleet officer who does bad stuff, or even a whole covert agency of them, as just a few bad apples. But, demonstrating that a core foundational principle of the Federation, carried over from pre-federation days by prejudiced humans, is deeply immoral, would be an undeniable blow to their smug self-righteousness.

I'd be in Section 31 doing the things our heroes can't be troubled with, but which are essential to the survival of the Federation.

Re: If You Were A Bad Guy In Trek

Prime timeline, 24th century:

I would try to use the Romulans' (after Romulus' destruction) and the Cardassians' desire to become great powers again and forge an alliance with both of them. Then I'd launch a two-front attack against the Federation. First, the Cardassians attack the Bajoran sector which will hopefully lead to the Federation dispatching the bulk of Starfleet there.

Then the Romulans strike at the heart of the Federation by conducting a simultaneous raid against Starfleet Headquarters as well as the San Francisco and Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. After those targets are eliminated, the Romulans are also destroying Jupiter Station on their way out. Then they're setting course for the Bajoran sector to attack the Starfleet forces there from the other side.

Ultimate goal: Force the Federation to sign a cease-fire on the Romulan-Cardassian alliance's terms. This treaty includes the surrender of several Federation colonies near the Romulan/Cardassian borders, the shutdown of starbases and outposts along those borders, and a reduction of Starfleet in number of ships.

Hack the replicators to poison everyone on the Enterprise, so everyone dies quicker than you can say "Bleurghh! Is this Klingon coffee?!"

Using unethical CIA like agencies seems a massive gamble given that Q told us "the trial never ends".

The threat from aggressor spieces like the Dominion are nothing compared to the power of Q or the Organians.

Our survival depends on enlightenment.

Re: If You Were A Bad Guy In Trek

In TNGtrek, I'd cut the bullshit.

The Federation is the biggest paper tiger in the history of paper tigers. Its military is run by ambassadors and scientists. Its government is pacifist to a fault. It can't wipe it's behind in a real war without help from actual fighting races. The only reason it wins is because it's the "good guys" in a good-versus-evil universe. In an objective universe, I'd back the Pakleds against them.

So there, I'd turn the universe objective.

In TOStrek, I'd just keep trying to kill Kirk until it actually happened. No point trying anything else until he's dead.

I'd litter, and probably do a little speeding. And I'd refuse to scoop.

And when they try to fine me they wont be able to because there's no money in the future! Mwaahaha!
