    moving stars around like legos doesn't have a long canon list. I guess the Kalandans might be added to that list.

    The Tkon Empire. The Kalandans perhaps since they constructed an entire class-M planetoid from scratch and had advanced, tactile hologram technology thousands of years ago. The Progenitors from TOS also stand out as a possibility.

    He’s a interesting character but he’s a Q villain. He would be a very strange character to bring into the story now. It would be very different to that of the novel since he’s currently trapped outside the barrier (with his friend, the Almighty at the Center [now he’s canon]). Nothing so far has shown anything about freeing him from that.
    I think the Reaper comparison is more apt to this big threat than him. If he was ever to appear on the screen, I’ve got the best actor to play him.

    I’m going with Protheans unless I’m told otherwise.

    O and the TKon are the best fit right now, that could easily change in a weeks time though.

    Not many civilisations can move Stars around, planets yes but not the Stars themselves.

    The Romulus Supernova is stated in the films as being unnatural, that means someone/something not only caused it but also did it without anyone being able to detect how.

    They could use the Empire and O but change the circumstances completely, they don't have to follow the novels plot or how it ended.

    Not even the Protheans can move the Stars themselves. :biggrin:

    ENT brought back the Ferengi plasma whip. Everything old in Trek is sooner or later new again.

    Brace yourselves. The area of penetration will no doubt be sensitive.

    I'm telling you guys, the season will end with a damp squib. T'kon were either wiped out for being racist dicks who enslaved androids or by a xenophobic faction who hated tolerance of synths. The Zhat Vash misinterpreted the message. The real antagonist is xenophobia.

    I disagree that the season will end with a damp squid. A message about the wrongs of xenophobia would be a very Star Trek message.

    I am aware the romulans are to blame but the police have dead bodies and on

    but you are all overlooking he left earth right after killings, the police have a pile of dead romulan bodies on a farm worked by romulan servants,

    starfleet is likely to be bad it always is, and tje federation has a history of throwing people under the bus to protect a treaty
    reporting something to starfleet is pointless, they are not the police and Admiral clancy is very likely to be bad very few starfleet admirals are good after all.

    who said it was a home invasion? the police never watched the scene on tv.

    they arrived, a pile of dead unregistered romulans are sat there presented to them by two romulan servants on a farm whontold them boss man had to defend himself.

    where is house owner? bossman left earth right after the event, but it was self defence.

    Now tell me if a pile of dead mexicans turning up on a us farm that used mexican workers wouldn't raise police eyebrows, now add to that the owner who had helped kill them had mysteriously left the usa right afterward without waiting for the police what would the police reaction be?

    I say a murder enquiry would be launched and a warrant for the persons arrest would be issued.

    It’s just Tkon, no apostrophe.
