What do you think of it does it make sense post about it here
Well it obviously doesnt to the captains of trek, i believe it should be bent though in some situations, like in first contact, the whole xindi thing in ent and endgame from voyager.
It should be bent to preserve what you have eg if in 2379 the borg anihilated starfleet then a quick trip back to 2151 might not be such a bad idea
I think events should be meddled with in time if someone else has used it to change events that have happened, such as ones mentioned. I know if Earth were to be obliterated or something the federation would probably want to use it.
Cant agree with you more Scorpy, I think that the Borg may have been the result of a temporal anomaly say a ship using nanotechnology went through time and crashed an a planet in the Delta Quadrant,the natives figured it out and started using the nano's to enhance themselves to make them better at stuff-the nano's went overkill on making them perfect and started hunting for perfection-If this were the case Starfleet could go right ahead and change history
Whos' to say that people are actually changing time? Who is to say that those specific captains aren't meant to go back / forward in time and "change" history?
Yeah-you can use that to justify any time travel-wicked excuse SSA
Personally I think some things should be fixed and others should be left alone. For example in the Voyager episode "Shattered" the whole ship was split into different timezones by a spatial anomily.
Commander Chakotay was struck by an energy discharge that sent his body into temporal flux. He was then injected with a compound the doctor came up with that protected him from the changes, he was then able to fix the ship.
In some cases such as "Futures end" time travel makes is a part of history and not just a mistake, Like when Janeway said that the computer revolution caused by Starling was ment to happen and that is was a part of history. I wonder waht things would have been like if that hadent happened. Also i find Janeway very hippocritical when it comes to the Temprol prime directive. In "Shattered" she says not to tell her anything due to the temprol prime directive but in "Relativity" she says "I dont care if history itself comes unravelled i want to know why youre on my ship"
if you go back in time and change something you would create a altenate universe to go back to explained in BACK TO THE FUTURE Pt 2 i think
