    There were more occasions I'm pretty sure, but good point: There's actually movie evidence that Trek weapons and shielding tech are heavily interlinked to work via frequency modulation rather than it just being an underexplained handwave explanation for Borg adaptation.

    Wars weapons use bolts of superheated ions rather than a coherent frequency beam, and fire through their shields by opening small apertures to fire through. There's no reason a Star Destroyer or what have you would have that vulnerability, it's not a relevant design feature.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, and I don't mean to be offensive here if it comes across that way - You are saying that since Star Destroyers open lots of little holes in their shields, that they are more secure against Beaming than Trek shields.

    Kirk's Son apparently had access to the stuff, since he was alive in one movie I assume he'll be around.


    TV stuff!!
    Janeway helped them come up with Nanoprobe phasers and torpedos, she's just supposed to forget that when working with Borg again?

    It's more that they have a hole in what they block. Of course neither are perfect or they'd block out Light too, so who knows what sorts of sub-space signals could go right through them. That on top of the above 'little holes' that Data/Spock could easily exploit.

Uatu then comes in and congratulates SG for saving the multiverse! :D

    ......oh wait, that actualy happened. :p

    Heh...I forgot Janeway showed up in 1 of the movies. I wonder if that helps or hurts Trek...

    Access to end of Voyager tech helps if she is able to provide that. Letting her anywhere near decision making or anything that requires some sort of logical reasoning hurts.
