    Re: Where was crewmen daniels and the temporal police?

    There's already a thread about this.

    To me, it seemed logical: If this attack would make the Federation stronger, the Federation's time police would be all for it. Perhaps that would even trigger the Temporal Cold War; seeing as the Federation would preach not to mess with the timeline; all the while making it look as if it's a good thing when they themselves do it.

    On the other hand, you do realize those bums only show up when it's needed, right?

    Two possible answers:

    1. The story takes place in a true alternate reality, not a ruptured timeline.

    2. The writers are not as well versed on Trek history as they think they are.

    You forgot the obvious 3rd option:
    - Everyone realized that the concept of a Time squad of the Federation policing the time line was an incredibly stupid concept, and they decided to just ignore it.

    They worked so hard to keep the timeline intact from the sphere builders but somehow missed the big ass DANGER DANGER DANGER in the Temporal Observatory when Nero went thru the singularity.

    It wasn't a danger, it made the Federation stronger.

    And yes, they were all on Risa, being entertained. They don't work 356 days a year, you know. Time's too precious for them.

    No, they were in Vegas with me last week. I'm not telling you what Daniels did. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas :shifty:

    How exactly?

    Even if they were stronger, a change is a change, and the loss of 6 billion lives plus the centuries of new life that would've come afterward is pretty important.

    That is only for the the Timefleet Agents to know.

    "Now that is a great example; it rid us of the hypocritical Vulcans and made us stronger at the same time." "I don't see it. Who's the girl in the miniskirt again?"

    See?

    I think in FIRST CONTACT the original timeline died. When Jordi told Zephrim the name of the Enterprise it inspired him to name the first warp 5 vessel after the Enterprise E.

    It could also be that Archer made a deal with daniels to finally get rid of the Vulcan High Command. :devil:

    One of them read a centuries old book describing M-Theory and quantum branching, and they realized the the entire Temporal Cold War was actually a tremendous waste of time.

    Then they sat down, had a cup of tea and realized they shouldn't bother all that much, anyhow. Then entered the golden age of universekind. :D

    Indeed! I already submitted my little gem but if someone could photoshop a small image of Nero into one of those "time bubbles" and start a thread that would be awesome.

    I second that. I do have the series on DVD but I would have had a lot less headaches if Enterprise never happened.
