If Odo was to fight against a T-1000 Terminator, who do you think would win and why?
Odo, just 'cause.
T-1000, because he has more SFX budget money to make kewl weapons.
The writers have said that they deliberately made Odo/Founders weak so they wouldn't be compared to a T-1000.
I, however, think that that was a huge mistake.
They should have the Founders get upgraded for the Dominion War II, and kicking butt on the frontlines with T-1000's powers and more.
how would the T-1000 win? Melee weapons would not be harmful to Odo.
In the season 1 episode "Vortex", Odo is knocked unconscious by falling debris while attempting to escape an unstable cavern on an asteroid.
If he can be knocked out while in humanoid form, shouldn't he find being diced by bladed weapons uncomfortable, if not incapacitating, as well?
Didn't Odo become a fire somehow after meeting a fellow changling?
If Odo could create an extreme temperature either hot or cold he would win in a battle.
The T-1000's only hope would be some sort of massive energy release or explosion, but it is generally understood that Terminators lack self-termination ability.
Odo didn't know Founders could be fire, and was never shown bein' fire himself after his encounter with Laas.
Odo would win because he has a brain(for lack of better word) and not limited by programming
Odo would win.
What happens if you chop a founder in half? Do they become two new people?
^ No, but the T-1001 could .
I would think they would search the other halfs out and form back into one?
but to toss a wrench into the mix would the Borg be able to assimilate either a Founder or a T-1000?
As shown when Odo as a glass was broken into multiple pieces, the pieces revert to liquid & reform into one entity - Odo.
As for assimilation, I'd say that a Founder can't be, since they have so much control over their own bodies, but a T-1000 could be, since they're technological. But, it wouldn't be a real drone, since there wouldn't be a biological component.
Yet the idea of the T-1000 was that it was "biological enough" to pass through the time machine that only accepted organics, or things disguised as organics by adding some flesh...
On the issue of Odo getting knocked unconscious, I think he was faking it in "Vortex"... A good ruse for finding out the true motivations of Croden. But perhaps he is vulnerable to impact damage when he's not prepared for it?
Anyway, T-1000 would win, because it could always come back in time again, until it got it right...
Honestly, it would probably be a draw until Odo remembered that he can become fire and just melt the T-1000
Think of it as being made of the "silver blood" from Voyager's episode Demon.
Odo would win. All he would have to do is engulf the T-1000 within his own body and then slowly crush him.
But, since you never bring a knife to a gun fight, Odo could just pick up a phaser and fry the T-1000's knife-wielding ass into vapor.
That'd have to be Overseer Odo, since Constable Odo never used a phaser.
Now, if there's an unshielded warp core handy, it'd be a different story...
