    The only other thing I can think of is in Q Who? when Riker and Data are on the Borg ship. Riker says something like "they either don't see us, or they don't see us as a threat."

    I'm sorry I can't be more help. It really does sound like you're talking about a Borg episode, so you could run through those and see what you can find.

    Best of luck.

    Hello, Beamer. First generation fan here. As a map obsessed person it's almost inconceivable to me that anyone in the US might not be clear on all 50 states, but then I feel the same way about countries and planets.
    ----------
    I always loved station K7. And are you talking about a series of CGI "shots" all around Star Base 11? If it's what I'm thinking of, they're amazing. I would be happy to bursting point, bumming around Star Base 11 for a month.

    There's actually a really good column in New Mexico Magazine called "One of our Fifty is Missing". They have dozens of stories about people mistaking us as a foreign country.

    This is a pretty good overview vid on the mod, but several others have posted more in depth stuff.
    I guess they were going for a "historical recreation" as opposed to a "you are there" approach, which is why everyone's frozen. I know the subsequent Virtual Dreadnought Mod actually had moving NPCs and was a bit more interactive. They were also working on a TOS Season 4 mod called The Argas Effect that never got finished.

    Thanks. Star Base 11 is the one on a planet's surface, though.

    There's a few orbital drydocks you can explore, but for the most part, yes :)

    Hi, everybody! I found the site when I was trying to do some research for a story I'm working on a few weeks ago and kept coming back to it. I thought that if I was going to come around so much that I might as well join. Been watching Trek since I was a kid in the 90s with my favorite series being DS9. I'm looking forward to having some real in-depth conversations with fellow fans. :rommie:

    Hi all, noob here but I've been a Trek fan since I watched reruns of TOS and the animated series as a kid in the 70s.

    Right now, I'm going through all seasons of Voyager. I only watched it sporadically when it originally aired. Those early seasons seemed pretty dull. I'm enjoying it but I doubt I'll never need to watch most of the episodes ever again, unlike TOS and TNG.

    Hello all, newbie here! Been a Trek fan for a LONG TIME. I seem to go through stages though, where I'm just interested in it, to where I'm REALLY interested in it, I'm not in my REALLY interested in it stage lol. Since January I've bene trying to get back into playing the STCCG game, started reading some ST books (the Titan series) and in January started with the TOS pilot, watched the entire series straight through, watched TAS and am now on season 4 of TNG. I plan on watching every series, in order, hope to finish it by the end of the year.

    Hi all
    Loved Star Trek since i started watching reruns of the TOS in the 80's.
    Watched most of TOS and all of TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT.
    Read most of the TOS, TNG, DS9 novels and all of the VOY and ENT novels.
    These days I read more than I watch as I like seeing where the crews end up in the 24th Century.

    Hello everyone. I was born two days before the original airing of "The Alternative Factor" (or a little over a week before "The City on the Edge of Forever", which seems cooler) and have been a Trek fan since I was a kid in the '70s. Have seen all the TOS and TNG episodes dozens of times each, DS9 and VOY a few, ENT once. Have watched all of the movies more times than I could possibly count, even the "bad" ones (frankly, I love them all).

    Found this place via a mention on another site; not sure how I've missed it all these years. Glad to be on board!

    Hiya folks. As you can see, I'm brand new here, but certainly not new to these type forums. I pretty much eat, sleep and breathe sci-fi and fantasy - well, mostly fantasy, as my username suggests, but I like them both, and I've seen every Star Trek episode ever made, of every series. Indeed, I've seen every Star Trek everything, except for the two most recent movies, which I have absolutely no interest in.
    So, as for the rest of my life story... ah, I guess that can wait. :biggrin:

    Hljol! I'm new to the Trek BBS but have been a fan of Star Trek since I watched TOS on syndication on CBC when I was a kid. I've watched all the series and movies and appreciate at least something about every one of them. I still have a soft spot for TOS and my favorite is probably Enterprise. I'm looking forward to Discovery because I hope it will share some of the roughing it charm of Enterprise. That said I'm also interested in a new Star Trek RPG due for release in September. In the interim I'm hoping to do some set building (32mm scale) for tabletop and build the interiors for the classic Constitution class (The ship will be USS Mariner NCC 1685). I'm just get started but I can't post anything as I'm brand new so I will keep working at what I have started and share it once I have made enough posts :D . My hope is to get feedback for my RPG adventures and pick your brains for sweet stories and plots.

    Damn it. I just realized that I haven't actively sought out watching TOS in nearly 20 years. I've seen episodes, or partial episodes, here and there in that time, but I haven't set aside any specific period nor changed my schedule at all for TOS in that time. :(

    I'm living more the memory of TOS rather than actively refreshing my memories about it. There was a time just before TNG aired that I lived and breathed TOS and could recite most lines. My, how the grey matter disintegrates.

    I've kept up with TNG, but for some reason, I haven't with TOS.

    I own the Blu-rays, but I haven't watched them.

    That said, I have watched TMP, TWOK, TSFS, and TVH many multiples of times during that period.

    I don't give two hoots about DS9, Voy (though it's growing on me), nor Ent. I'm not terribly excited about DSC, either. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

    The Kelvin timeline doesn't exist in my fantasy universe.

    Hi, I'm the new guy. I've been reading this forum for a long time. But I've always been nervous to come on here mainly because I'm scared I don't know nearly enough. It's great to hear the view of other fans though. I've been a fan of Star Trek since I used to watch it with my dad in the 90's on BBC 2. I was born in 1985 so tng was my first love. My first memory of Trek is a fragmented memory of a Borg ship blowing up and I'm guess it was the conclusion to the best of both worlds (not a bad first trek memory to have) but I've been told that I'd watched it long before then.
    Deep space nine is my favourite trek. I own (as a lot of you will) all the episodes and films of Star Trek; I enjoy the conventions (the two I've been too) and just love discussing Trek. To introduce myself I thought I'd write Three controversial/unusual opinions I have on Star Trek as I think this will give people a flavour of what I'm about (maybe?)
    My three are:
    I have a real fondness for Star Trek V the final frontier. I think this stems from being young and watching bones, Kirk and Spock sing row row your boat and thinking, I sing that at school- you can't often say you do something that those three heros did. But now I appreciate the fifth film for some of the great character moments. I came to really enjoy getting deep into bones psyche as Sybok 'heals him'. Also I love the line "excuse me can I ask a question? What does god need with a starship?"
    Secondly I love the Bajorans I like the religion, I liked the way they rebuilt their world and I really really enjoyed the character of major Kira- I thinks Nana is an under appreciated actress and the first truley strong woman in Star Trek. Previous to that I feel the regular women in Star Trek were either played by actresses who maybe weren't up to the standard of Nana or were badly written (or at least not as consistently well written)
    Thirdly
    I quite liked Enterprise and when I think of my dream crew (if I could choose from all the main Star Trek crews) I would have Trip Tucker as my engineer- he is my favourite engineer (unlucky O'Brien) by far.
    So that's me.
    Thanks for reading
