our continuous arguing about nothing is going to get screwed now that Berman and Braga quite literally said, "screw continuity"....
Hmmm, DITL says that (and it sure got's its sources, it's canon, at leat more canon then yours) the Enterprise A IS a Constitution refit, and that the previous ship was called the Yorktown.
 it says that it got that from the Star Trek Encyclopedia, third edition, Page 572, something thats a bit more trust-able than Scotty's blablabla.
speaking of the E-A, TMP was on today on Spike, and a thought just popped into my head... what if when Decker joined with V'Ger, they created the Borg? its kinda farfectched, i know, but it still makes some sense... Spock does say that it has new emotions and stuff, and as far as i know, the Queen does have emotions... and V'Gers ship was pretty advanced, like the Borg are...

Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual, page 3 confirms this (as does virtually every other source). Try Goolging "Devil's advocate." It'll do you well in life. @blurb23~ First time I've heard that one. Though I have heard theories put forth that V'ger hails from the Borg homeworld--a possibility raised by Roddenberry (half jokingly) after Q Who? was filmed.. Of course, that doesn't jibe with the notion that the Borg didn't know about the UFP until the events of Q Who? (which are, at any rate, contradicted by Data in The Neutral Zone). Either way, one would think that if the merging of Decker/Ilia and V'ger created the Borg, wouldn't the Borg already know of Earth? Or more to the point... why leave and come back a century later as a hostile entity?
That was a theory I had several years ago. I was countered by someone else, who indicated that, in an actual Star Trek episode, the Borg were stated to be 900 years old.
Also, in William Shatner's, and Judith and Garfield Reeves Steevens books series, the Borg were encountered by V'Ger, along with dozens of other species. Thus Spock was the first to "see" the Borg.
meh, just a spur of the moment thing... hadn't really thought into it that much...
It is a GREAT theory. Too bad Berman didn't think of it. :o
lol, can Berman and Braga think of when it comes to continuity?! im willing to bet my soul (ok, maybe not that high...) that on the series finale of Enterprise, Daniels or someone is going to come up and say, "Whoops, you were just an accident of the Temporal Cold war! You were never supposed to meet the Borg, and T'Pol was never supposed to join Starfleet! Heck, your ship wasn't even supposed to be named Enterprise!", or something crappy like that
i just had to post this here... its gotta be the funniest thing ever... it's not funny for the humor, just the sheer stupidity Heinz ketchup is doing this thing where you send in witty comments to have them put on their labels for their ketchup bottles... well, currently, they're doing a Celebrity Edition, and i just bought one with William Shatner's on it, and his "witty" phrase was, "Fixes burgers at warp speed" :)
Is this not about favorite quotes?
