    WESLEY: Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on again? Literally?

    I wonder why the starbase wasn't also assimilated?

    Perhaps it's full of Starfleet retirement homes that went all "Cockneys vs. Zombies" on any assimilated crew.

    Bloody Trafalgars.

    Well, all those powers have been defeated by Starfleet at one point or another. I wouldn't count on them lasting long against a Borg controlled Starfleet.

    That's transphobic.

    I'd advise against making comments like this.

    I think the problem with TOS was less the 1960s aesthetics, but more that design features such as the buttons being rows of Jelly Beans are a tad to quirky. Star wars today gets away with 1980s looking computer screens, and cockpits that look like 1960s aircraft. I think SNW did a tremendous jobs in upgrading the look. Wish they would have stayed closer in size and layout to TOS though. Kirk's bridge was perfect in layout. he just needs to swivel in his chair, and he can see what everyone is working on. Picard, and Janeway had no clue what was going on behind them without asking or pulling up pages on their own monitors.

    I think Enterprise-D design has held up well. The one thing out of date was the computer screens that were either static, or CRT monitors. They fixed that.

    Tea on he Enterprise-D was served in cups by the European company Bodum. The design has not changed much in 30 years. In fact, it will not change much in the next 300 it seems. ;)

    The Italian furniture maker Cassina makes some eye wateringly expensive furniture that would look at home in a Enterprise-D lounge.

    Italien car maker Lancia sees "the future" as being something that has a TNG color palette.

    The thing about Star Wars is a lot of the ships and technology we see are supposed to be old and outdated in universe, which is why modern productions can get away with sticking to designs thought up in the 1970s. Star Trek meanwhile tries to depict its ships and tech as state of the art and as such they're dated looks don't mesh well when time marches on.

    I guess by default the Bynars would be non-binary? Or is that too ironic? They do seem to not fit well into male or female archetypes.

    It's still transphobic.

    Specifically on this part, he does say other Federation ships right? I know this still doesn't clear things up, but I presumed he was referring to non-Starfleet Federation ships. This could refer to civilian ships as well as Vulcan ships like the VSS T'Plana etc. Lower Decks and the existence of the T'Plana make it sound as if the Vulcan Expeditionary Force still exists atbthis point, so perhaps some other member species still have done non-Starfleet navies.

    I probably should have looked for a video clip for anyone (I presume most people) who haven't seen the film. Did eventually get round to finding one.

    I don't know if it was intentional or not but when Jack was talking to Beverly about finding the Borg queen he came across very Shinzony.

    Probably because it is so massive. The Starbase is like a moon. Remember, it can easily fit several galaxy class starships inside space dock with room to spare. There could be tens or even hundreds of thousands of people in the starbase and many of them would be over 25. So I am sure the Borg tried to assimilate it but failed.

    Wonder what the deal is with Jupiter.
    will the Enterprise will use Jupiter's gases to fight against the borg cube? Like when Kurn jumped to warp after diving into a star, or when Worf avenged Jadzia's death with the same maneuver to destroy the Dominion shipyards at Monac IV. Firing into Jupiter could potentially take out a cube...
