I watched this episode last night
What's on your mind?
In my opinion this game is so awesome and probably best RTS game since Away Team and Stafleet Commands. I hope that do you agree with me?
For the last four years (since my first interaction with ST), I’ve solely lived off of TOS and the Kelvin reboot. I’ve finally ventured past these two, starting with The Motion Picture Sunday and The Wrath of Khan tonight. I’m going by release order, and will occasionally be giving updates on where I am, probably because I really liked a movie/episode. This will take around two years. 👍
(especially for the part where there are three shows I have to watch simultaneously)

Of any kind? Not DNA, of any kind. Because we know Odo has human DNA when they force him to become frozen in human form. Which must be mimicry and not his actual nature, as he later is able to unlock his form and become mutable again.
And do we know how they retain and share memories, knowledge and skills?
I am asking because I am now wondering if the Section-31 morphogenic virus was a biological virus or an idea virus....?
I am inclined to believe the latter, given that Operative Sloan shows no indication of being a medical physican or a biochemist and the nature of the Anti-Virus cure is that Miles and Julian have to enter into Sloan’s mindscape to access his thoughts in order to get it - which suggests that it is The Idea of a Cure and The Idea of a Changeling Disease that they were infected with.
MAYBE they more or less hypnotised Odo to BELIEVE subconsciously that he was carrying an infection that would wipe out his entire race of people — which probably would not be too hard to sell to him, given how much alienation and repressed guilt he is carrying around with him, and what he confesses to Garak under torture.

The only reason the Vengeance was destroyed was because of Khan, Scotty, Kirk, and the torpedoes they had on the Kelvin Enterprise. If it weren't for Scotty, the Enterprise would have surely been destroyed. But in an actual battle in space, could the USS Enterprise-D destroy the Vengeance?
This movie is about to start. Excited.
This is the end of this very meaningless post.
I assume it's because they would look cheesy in TNG, VOY or DS9, but is there a canonical explanation for this? How come the Gorns or the Tholians never make an appearance? Are they part of the Federation now?
No, this post isn’t about the film. Or the episode for that matter. What I want to know is, what was everyone’s “first contact” with Star Trek? That is, how were you first exposed to the franchise? What show, movie, book, video game, etc first got you hooked and make you fall in love with Trek?
For me, the answer is further back that I can remember. My earliest memories (which start in the mid-‘80s) already include reruns of TOS and TAS. By the time TNG premiered, I was already a Trek fan, so 6-year-old I though that Encounter At Farpoint was the coolest thing I had ever seen (and yes, I remember watching it when it first premiered). From that point I was hooked, watching every new episode of TNG and later DS9, VOY and ENT as the came out. I saw every film from ST VI forward on opening day.
I really think how and when you’re first exposed to Trek has an impact on how you view the franchise. I read a lot of comments and opinions from folks here, largely focused towards DIS and the Kelvin trilogy that make me wonder, how did everyone else come to love Trek? I’m just curious. I feel like an “old school” fan compared to a lot of people even though I was born over a decade after TOS ended. So I just want to know: what was your first contact?
What would this new superstate be called? What system of government would it have? Would it include species from all Star Trek eras? (Species would include the Gorn, Romulans, Tholians, Cardassians, Vulcans, Ferengi, Klingons, Bajorans, Humans, etc.)
