    I like the original beam ones more. In DS9 you got both anyway.

    How about you?

    Personally I think he's trying to make Star Trek like Star Wars, which is not a good idea.

    Granted, Star Trek has indulged it's core fan base for some time, but I think things went downhill with Voyager, Enterprise, and the fact that they made the Borg in First Contact have a queen.

    They were FAR more scary without one in the original series. I don't know about you, but a mass of robotic people who just don't care is a lot more scary than a single female entity who is controlling them all. Add in sex appeal and all the fright is lost.

    Scary things shouldn't be sexualized, they should be feared. You can only heap so many human qualities onto a villain to give the effect you want. The Borg weren't originally sexy, they were just plain unstoppable and scary, and I think that was how they should have stayed.

    But, it is what it is. If only the writers of DS9 did EVERYTHING. Then Star Trek would still be Star Trek.

    I don't like the idea of a Borg queen either. Never really did.

    I still liked Voyager, though.

    I'm not a fan of the Abrams Star Trek. It just feels like bad fan fiction. The fact that he took iconic moments and (badly) redid them kind of irked me. I don't care who you are, don't touch Khan. Come up with your own plot and villains...
