Yeah....I know....it's Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, but, as I was the winner of the last Challenge, and as I live in the Southern Hemisphere, it's going to be the Winter Challenge....for this one, anyway....the winner of this one can call the next one Spring, if they're in the South, or Fall, if they're in the North, and so on, as far as I'm concerned :-) Anyway.... Let's see....some ideas.... What if The Borg had succeeded in stopping First Contact, and had turned the population of Earth into Borg, as Data mentioned "Population approximately 9,000,000,000....all Borg" Many years ago there was a story arc called The Doctor & The Enterprise....this one was based on the 4th Doctor and Classic Trek....what would happen if the Peter Capaldi version, or The War Doctor (or even just your Doctor of choice), met up with The Enterprise - E....or Captain Jack Harkness and Torchwood, maybe? Here's an example of the older one http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Doctor_and_the_Enterprise In my story from the last Challenge, I had the original Kahless-The-Unforgettable as a Gou'ald, and also referenced a Predator at one point as well....what if other races in Trek were Gou'ald?? The Vulcans, and presumably Romulans as well (being originally Vulcans) live for 200 years at a time on average....what if the reason for that was because they're Gou'ald? There's a few ideas to get you going anyway....I'm sure people can think of many more :-) Have fun with it and see where things go.
