    I don't mind fictional concepts, I just wish they'd follow the rules they establish... like you can't beam through shields. Then next episode they can.

    I want to know what they did with the rest of the sophisticated 29th century technology from the Borg drone "One".

    The same thing that happened to the Borg baby.

    Apparently the only thing recovered was the mobile emitter. Maybe Seven insisted on a traditional human ceremony for such circumstances.

    ^ I think he was referring to the maturation chamber and what not.

    :shrug:Threw it in the replicator??

    What would they really need it for beyond that episode?
    It only serves one purpose, right?

    .....unless Seven & Neelix converted it into a new type of coffee maker.:lol:

    As far as the Borg baby, (I wish I kept the link) but a fellow member had posted that there was a line about how it was given to the parents of the Borg twins that also took Mazati but got edited out due to time restraints. I remember around the time of "Dark Frontier", the script writers/editors had to shave a minute off each episode going forward to make room for more commercials. I know on the DVD's, the episode "Dark Frontier" has an extended scene with Tom & Harry in the mess hall that wasn't shown in full when it aired on regular TV.

    Berman or Braga, who cares, said that at convention to a heckling crowd, but I feel like what you're thinking of is that there was a line to that effect at some point which was dropped from the final script because Berman thought that we weren't idiots and it was all self evident that Janeway would have found the babies parent between Child's Play and good shepherd.

    Good Shepherd is the episode where she decides that she isn't a good enough mother to all the crew? This is after they spent a month looking for the mother of a Borg baby who's world have probably been totally assimilated leaving no survivors, but against all odds they found her and there was a happy ending... Maybe seeing the glow in that young mothers cheeks as she reclaimable her thought stolen babe is why Janeway reached out to her own lost boys hiding in the lower decks?

    Bah, humbug.

    If there had been such a simple answer to this quandary, it's unlikely to have plagued us this long.

    Umm, no.
    I'm pretty sure I was clear about it was probably cut due shave a minute off the ep., which has nothing to do with us the audience or how smart or not he thought we were. Not everything is about us. :rommie:

    I should have said "Berman said".

    But yes, that too, his belief in our ability to grasp the blatantly obvious, was part of his tremendously loud con-rant.

    They harvest the useful organs and then sell the remains to make Neelix's soup.

    Don't they shoot them off into space.

    Wasn't there one ep where the dead crew member came back and then left again because she was now part of that alien culture? Or am I thinking of another show?

    You're probably thinking of season nine of the Love Boat when the Love Boat went to Australia for Julie, the former Cruise Directors, downunder wedding.

    There is very little difference between being dead and living in Australia.

    Death is still preferable to the Simpson's Australia episode.

    If the water in my toilet started spinning in the other direction, I'd call the Ghost Busters.

    Tuvok: "Captain, we're out of torpedoes."
    Janeway: "Bullshit, Tuvok. We just had Ensign Parson's funeral, didn't we?"
    Tuvok: "Indeed, utilizing our last torpedo casing."
    Janeway: "Whatever. Load it into the aft launcher and fire!"

    Cut To: Alien Attacker Bridge
    Alien Officer: "They've fired another torpedo!"
    Alien Captain: "You said they're supply was depleted!"
    Alien Officer: "They must be, the torpedo has no warhead, just--"

    *A thump is heard (because Trek has sound in space) as the nude body of Ensign Parsons plops out of the torpedo casing and smacks into the window, ass-first, before the alien officer activates the wind-shield wipers to get it off...*

    :guffaw:

    Reabsorbed them to power the replicators. That way Janeway would always have that cup of black coffee.
