Actually it "DO" hunt, like someone up there said, it's an "F"'ing video game.
I don't ever recall seeing the following in any episode of ST either...
1) A ship with the name SIRBOUNCYONES
2) An officer in SF named DEEZNUTZ
3) A Klingon spamming "Holla at ya boi *****ez!"
Let's back up to the point where most of us realize this isn't real, it isn't a movie, it's not a book.
Thank you for your time.
This is not real
Dang it!!! I quit my job after I got my commission in Starfleet yesterday.
All your points are not really relevant as for it to be relevant you'd have to assume Cryptic control how players express themselves, they don't, well, not noticably yet.
I'm talking basic design, basic lore, things Cryptic have instilled into the game.
The FACT it's a GAME really throws all of that out of the window doesn't it?? Since it's interactive entertainment and not real canon?!?! I'm not rally making fun of you, just saying I wouldn't expect too much in that department. Fact is people want to fly ships, play as the borg, etc, so it's going to be written in.
But on Sector 001 battle (first contact) they were ordered to stay away, due to fear over picards sanity when facing the borg again.
I don't think they feared his sanity so much as it was an unknown factor and they didn't want to risk it. They might have thought the Borg would be able to re-assert control. We have to remember this was only Starfleets second real engagement against the Borg.
And while Picard was able to tap into the Collective to a small degree, that situation proved they couldn't just re-assert themselves and control Picard. Add to that Seven of Nine's experience and 30 years, and the uncertainty of that factor has vanished. They would now know that liberated Borg individuals are indeed free of the Collective and can, in fact, use their experiences in a notably beneficial capacity.
on a side note...genetically enhanced race is a damn fine idea for a new race
Except that what he went through was illegal and, when it became known, nearly cost him his career in Starfleet. It's possible the Federation has relaxed its rules regarding such things, but I honestly doubt it. To do so would have set a very bad precedence and opened a very dangerous door back into augmentation research.
I remember the days when a Klingon would be shot dead on sight on the bridge of a Federation vessel. A few decades later and along came Worf. Bridge officer, and eventually commanding officer of the Defiant.
You can now get Klingon bridge officers in the Federation....during a time of war with the Klingons!
Where's the outrage at that?
Times change and opinions towards groups of people change, sometimes in a relatively short period of time.
