Not to mention that such motherly subtleties as tucking Icheb into bed, seeing him off to school, and kissing scrapes to make them better will be completely lost on her. Heck, for scrapes, she'll probably just squirt some nanoprobes at him--problem solved.

In fact, nanoprobes may turn out to be her all-purpose panacea for all of life's ills. Failed a test? Nanoprobes to augment the brain. Beat up at school? Add more nanoprobes. Dumped on his first date? NANOPROBES. Icheb will be 90% metal by weight by the time he graduates from the Academy and will be as emotionally distant as the next galaxy.

Seriously. Annika Hansen is not qualified to be a mother. No way, no how.
No, I got that, I was just adding another con to having Annika as a mom. Though you seem to forget that Icheb is already a teenager, almost full grown by now. I really hope she's not supposed to tuck him or kiss scrapes to make them better lol.
I was just saying that if Icheb makes any male adolescent friends at the academy, their hormones won't let him hear the end of their misguided fantasies about his mom, which can be quite awkward.

Of course, then the person right after me had to prove my point by not even reading the intent of my post and drool all over a fictional character like a dog in heat

Are you saying that raising a teenager is easier than raising a ten-year-old? :p I think the parents of the world would contest that idea.

Just teasing. I see your point.

Hee hee hee...

Great addition to the story of 2385! Thanks!

Since they're on some of the first released screenshots it's likely we will encounter the Borg again.
In my opinion the crucial point about the Borg is to make them really dangerous again. That is why I think it's necessary to have "new" Borg in 2409 which have evolved in some way and are coming back with new strenght, new abilities to be a real threat.

Weak Borg are boring, I want to fear them!

Anywho I thought it was excellent they got the Character of Seven dead on, and it was a very Trekish setting. Keep up the awesomeness Cryptic.

Need I remind everyone that if we do find her in game she would be in her late 50's or early 60's

But aside from that this was a great rea , hopefully more of the same will follow...


If you keep up with the Trek universe you would know that Sixty is considered the beginning of Middle age; diametrically Middle Age today is considered be forty Five (acording to U.S. Administration on Aging) up five years from forty in 1982...now I don't know about you but I think there are some smoking Forty year olds out there.

Just saying

The Borg is like the common cold...
There is no cure, just a treatment...
Persistence is anything but futile.

I think this storyline sets up for a series of missions in game. Helping out the Daystrom Institute acquiring rare parts and pieces of borg technology to help further research, as well as, like Annika states, when, not if, they show up in the Alpha Quadrant again.

I am soooo looking forward to it.

Interesting update, but uncertain how globally significant it is.

The borg are dreadful and have no fashion sense whatsoever. The borg need an extreme makeover, which I shall provide with my ship's weapons system. Seven of nine is too pedantic to serve aboard my ship tho and I dont like crewmember who question my orders. Keep up the good work.
