And I suppose you have something to back that up other than the fact that Picard remodulating the weapon shoots your entire argument to hell?

only to then change your claim from one about
a redshirt getting over run while trying to tap in a new setting,
picard having to use a tool to remodulate said weapon.
Here's exactly what I wrote in regards to First Contact:

If it were simply a button press how exactly would any ship ever get overrun by the Borg?

Bottom line: either accept the fact that source material puts manual remodulation as a slow, clunky process, or simply get one of the anti-borg sets and have the magical one-button press remod that you're looking for.
Where in there do I say anything about the tapping being the sole means to remodulate a weapon? Nowhere. In fact, I explicitly state that remodulation is a lot more involved than tapping.

So please, for your own sake, stop making yourself look even more uninformed.

And this is now the third subsequent post where you repeatedly bring up how you screwed up a source detail. Perhaps if you don't want people to consider your lack of knowledge of the source, you should stop mentioning how you don't actually know the source?

while making pointless attacks against me based on my getting a name wrong.
Provide for me exact quotes of me contradicting myself in this thread. You can't because I haven't.

You on the other hand have gone from "it's a button push" to "it takes tools" back to "oh it doesn't take either, but I want it to be exactly how I want it to be".

So please, get your facts right, or stop making inane arguments based solely on your unwillingness to deal with in-game mechanics.
