    Indeed it was. This was one of my major issues with that movie.

    Why would only the adults be sucked into the "Nexus Void"??

    There is lots of "rank" non-sense all over Star Trek. :techman:

    What time period is this set in?

    If it's within a few decades of the Dominon War, the chances of someone from a civilization that killed Stafleet personnel by the thousands being given a postion in Starfleet is zero. Or will it be established that she turned her back on her species?

    The drop is the whole, and the whole is the drop.

    How about no? No offense, but way too fanwanky.

    The cadet/LT thing is very easily rectified: Kirk was using the Academy as an OCS rather than a 4 year commissioning program/undergraduate program. Pike mentioned that Kirk was a genius, I could easily see him having bounced around from college to college, stacking up credits. Plus he mentions that he'd do the Academy in 3 years, something that would be easier if he only needed it for the Starfleet aspect and not the undergraduate. Granted, in today's army, you wouldn't go to West Point if you already had a college degree, but perhaps in the Federation, all commissioning programs for Starfleet take place at SF Academy.

    We also see McCoy also attending the Academy and he obviously had already attended college being an MD. :techman:

    I didn't say she was a star fleet cadet, but someone they met along the way

    The concept is...What if most of the major powers The Romulans, Klingons, and the Federation's fleets were trapped by an unknown alien power in a Nexus Void (Made it up, Fire Me:rolleyes:) Leaving only may be a handful of Federation, Romulan and Klingon ships with pretty much skeleton crews on board....Where they still had to major problems, PROTECT THE QUANDRANT, FREE THEIR PERSPECTIVE FLEETS, STOP any more INCURSIONS FROM THE ALIENS

    This would put whoever is left as the acting Star Fleet commander. Captain Worf as acting Admiral, Chancellor someone from the Klingon empire and who ever runs the Romulans

    I didn't say she was a cadet either, and I still don't see a changling being given any kind of position aboard a Starfleet vessel. Not even something like what Kes and Neelix had.

    A Red Squad series would be doomed from the start. Red Squad, by definition, was a corrupt organization, playing at the egos of its members - when you believe you are the best, then by definition you think you are better than everyone else, and this leads to all sorts of problems. Not the least of which was Red Squad being used as a tool by Admiral Leyton in his attempted takeover of the government. An organization like that could not help but do something like that - hell, if Leyton hadn't come along, they might have tried it on their own.

    I would not be at all surprised if Red Squad had ties to Section 31 in some manner. Red Squad had no more of a 'right' to exist than Section 31 did, and I view both organizations as similarly corrupt.

    I don't have any proof but am beginning to think CommodoreDecker and Star Wars are the same person.

    Then you should see this:

    By sheer coincidence, both are presented by the OP as a potential series format in separate threads.

    With the exception of yourself Sran, all the member of the TrekBBS are actual just one person using thousands of aliases.
