Do you think the Borg could assimilate the Sheliak or Excalbians?
I'd like to see them try it on a Medusan first.
Excalbians, sure, why not? Nanoprobes might like silicon-based lifeforms, too.
Sheliak, no, don't think so. Their lawyers would never allow assimilation. They'd keep the Borg tied up in courts for decades.
Must you give a sarcastic answer to all of my questions?
It's called a joke, lighten up.
It gets pretty old when he does it for every single thread I create.
I think the Borg would subscribe Shakespeare in regards to lawyers.
"First thing we'll do is assimilate all the lawyers".
Is it necessary to create a thread about this?
What kind of answer would you prefer? What would a serious answer to this question be?
I want to see the Borg try and assimilate a Giant Space Jellyfish from "Encounter at Farpoint"
I don't know, maybe try to compare the physiologies of Excalbians and Sheliak with physiologies of species the Borg have assimilated, or likely have assimilated. You did a good job speaking about the Excalbians.
Of course not. Though I found it interesting. Was it necessary for you to create your threads?
I've never started a thread. If I did, however, I wouldn't pick a dubious topic and get defensive when people joked about it.
Ok, fine. I just think that topics like this are more interesting than "Who's your favorite captain?," but maybe you disagree.
Constant joking is annoying.
No argument here, but the joking would happen less often if you didn't respond to it.
Ok, Sran, thanks. Now please answer this: Which of the aforementioned races do you like more?
Never thought much about it to be honest with you.
Compare physiologies? How could anyone do that? The only Borg ever seen were of the one head/two arms/two legs variety. Nothing outside of the basic human shape was ever depicted as part of the Collective. So apparently the Borg don't do non-humanoids, therefore neither Excalbians nor Sheliak would be assimilated. Whether they could be or not, who can say? What is there to discuss about that? Any answer is as good as another.
I still think the Sheliak lawyers alone would make the Borg leave them alone.
It's too bad we don't know how strong a Sheliak ship is. I'm speculating, but I wonder if the massive temperature of the Excalbian body would fry the Borg nanoprobes.
Seriouslyif th Borg ever show up in NuTrek there should be non-humanoid Borg. Some species would make great mobile mortar launchers.
What about assimilating Tholians?
