When I first started seeing these screen shots I thought the various nebulae and gaseous clouds were and interesting way to keep space interesting. Now I'm starting to see it as rather messy, and kind of distracting. Will there be some pure star scenes-- maybe with a dense and beautiful Milky Way?
Think though, how boring would it be with a pic of just stars? They want to show you the pretty pictures, lol. I'm sure we'll see our share of empty space.
The closest they came to blowing them up with conventional weapons was the beginning of Dark Frontier where Kim blew up a Borg probe by transporting a torpedo into the ship and destroying it from the inside
Re-watched it, they downed the primary shield matrix allowing them to beam it over. Why didn't the Borg beam it back or into space?
