# 1 Borg Trash Talk
04-04-2012, 04:57 PM
Mostly non-serious amusement-based thread.

Running STFs with the constant Borg trash-talk/taunting/whatever and it got me thinking. The first thing it made me think about was telling my comm officer to "Hail the Borg, all frequencies, advise them that we know who they are, so they can stop talking now." They just won't SHUT UP. Following that, made me think about the logic of their taunts.

"Your defenses are unable to withstand us, etc"
Ya think they have ever rolled into a system, scanned the locals, and transmitted "Your defenses are very impressive. Please don't shoot us. We're leaving now" ?

"Lower your shields. Surrender your vessel. Escort us to your homeworld. etc."
Among the thousands of encountered species, I wonder if ANYONE ANYWHERE EVER has said "ooooooh, okie!" Maybe the Pakled....

I like to think of the intimidation as some failed neural-hub politics.

"WE MUST GAIN KNOWLEDGE FROM OTHER SPECIES. ALL DRONES SHOULD SUBMIT THEIR IDEAS. ... SUBMISSION COMPLETE. TABULATING RESULTS. THREE DOMINATE CONCEPTS DEFINED."

1) "We should offer people a happier life to join us! Every race has sick and injured beyond the sciences of their capability. We could offer them immortality for their information! We'll be the love of the galaxy!"
2) "Let us demonstrate our superior ability. They will be overwhelmed by our awesome and surrender to us."
3) "Boom!! Shoot em all, assimilate whatever's left!"

AVERAGING RESULTS. NEW POLICY ADDOPTED:
PHASE 1 -- OPEN HAILING FREQUENCIES TO BE DIPLOMATIC
PHASE 2 -- MAKE THREATENING BOASTS
PHASE 3 -- SHOOT EVERYTHING

Thanks for the suggestion, when the PUGs and I are online later, I will start spouting anti Borg insults

Just like every time I play my KDF toon I will stage the most epic anti Federation discussions on Qo'nos zone chat. Thankfully, I rarely log on to KDF.

Lol!

If that whole thing wasn't bigger than the allowed signature space, I would put that up as my new sig.

Hmmm... Its hard to trash talk a borg. I mean "go suck plasma, you hive minded blood flea" lacks oomph. And something like "all that surgery and you couldn't get a boob-job for your queen" feels cheap.

We are Starfleet. Assimilation as you know it is futile. Disconnect yourselves from the Collective and prepare to be rehabilitated.

"You will be assimilated."

Response: "When you have a better healthcare plan, I might consider it."

Don't forget the cosmetics. I like the prosthetics but Borg facial sucks. For 500ec I can get a better facial care package.

Also change your uniforms. Wires and stuff isn't attractive. You guys should take some cues from Seven of Nine.
