*you can buy, sell, trade and mail people (bridge and duty officers)...

*keep excess unwanted officers in your cargo bay...

*purchase crew-members prepackaged in a special box, from a machine...


Is it just me or does that make the modern temp-labor/staffing-service economy seem sane by compare?


Also apparently you can harvest wildlife from a planet, raise it/mutate it in a lab, then sell them to a vending machine in trade for heavy weapons. You can't even do that in JAPAN, home of wacky-vending-machines-GALORE!

I always assumed the box contained the master command-codes and passwords along with all the pertinent "paperwork" and owner-manuals/shakedown-crew logs... not the actual ship.

I could take a boxed shuttle out to deep space in the Delta Quadrant, open it, and there it is in my shuttlebay. So I assume the same goes for big ships.

Shuttles are different. They use that same technology that those wet-and-grow novelty sponges use. That's how Voyager was able to carry 15,750 spares.

Now that I think about it, they more than likely had boxes and boxes of spare crew in the cargo bay... and once they were in contact with Starfleet they just ordered additional crew off the exchange am I right?

"I canna change the laws of physics!"

And now that I think about it, the same probably goes for torpedoes.
