Ok, that would be cool too.  But what I think would be also really cool is a Star Trek crossover with a non-space show like Sea Quest.  That would be totally cool because it would allow for more earth-bound missions, like full-length episodes of away missions, but not just for earth or planets like earth.  I would use the Voyager ship and crew, or mix that crew up with the Enterprise crew That would be great fun!

I am not narrow minded.  I like (obviously) Star Trek, Fringe, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica (old and new), Farscape, Stargate (all of them), Firefly, The Invaders (for those old enough), Futurama, Space 1999, Quantum Leap, Angel, etc.... I could go on forever (and yes, i still have a social life ).


I JUST DO NOT LIKE CROSSOVERS!!!!


Crossovers are made when writers and production companies (books, movies, etc..) run out of imagination. I want original stories, not a mix of what already exists.


DS9 RULES!!!!!

My apologies, sir. I have met a LOT of ST fans who are VERY hostile towards certain other series (even fans of TOS who absolutley HATE other ST incarnations) and I guess I was really telling THEM off. In other words, just blowin' off some antimatter steam. Live long and prosper my friend.

I would like to see the Borg take on the Replicators in Stargate.  Crossovers only happen when both shows are owned by the same company or are on the same network Eureka & Warehouse 13 come to mind and Hawaii 5-0 and NCIS LA.  I have noticed Star Trek & Star Wars both mentioned in Stargate SG-1 but as fiction shows and movies.  If you can't tell by my sig I am a huge Scifi/Fantasy fan and do not for the life of me understand why some fans feel like they have to put down other shows & franchises it's entertainment people not a competition and I noticed ST fans fight with each other too I love TNG and ENT but some of the others I didn't get into but I wouldn't say they were bad I just didn't get into for personal reasons

Wow! That would be so awesome, what do you suppose would be the plot of an episode(s) like that?  Would you base an entire series on that?  How would it work when all three seem to want total control and to take over everyone and everything, especially The Borg?

 


Got the idea from BSG actually. We saw a flash back of Adama finding the outpost where the Cylons had been experimenting with their first attempts at the skin jobs. I thought what if that were the oragin of the Borg. An abandon outpost, where the Cylons had just left. These early skinjobs were left to survive and evolve on their own, and they evolved into the Borg.


Then by the end of the series we learn that it was man that had created the Cylon and then the Cylon had rebelled against man. I thought, "how very much like the Terminators!"


Time line would be a problem because of the whole"all this has happened before and it will happen again." dynamic from BSG.


So they wouldn't have to all be around at the same time. Ther evolutionary chart would sort of be like


 Man creates Cylon > Cylon rebels against Man > Cylons abandon early attempts at Bio/Machine hybrids, thus inadvertantly creating the Borg, who are developing and evolving on the own seperate and apart. Cylons then create the Terminators in their second effort to create the cybornetic hybrid.


All now having their own cultural Identity, and having all suffered losses against the Human race, they re-ally themseves against us,.

   Wow, that sounds like a great idea for a Sci-Fi television series. 


 


That all sounds really cool, though the time-line is a bit of a problem like you mentioned, but no big deal, I suppose to the true open-minded fans of those shows.  Though, there is also another problem since from the movie we all know that basically a computer virus created the Terminators from machines who created them, so that I suppose that might all have to be worked out within the plot somehow. 


 


     Another thing, do you think their agendas would all be the same or would there be fighting amongst them?  Remember the Star Trek Voyager episode in which there was a race of silver and gold androids that had killed their creators, and even though they were both identical physically, they were at war against each other.  I think things like that will happen on such a series.  I think that also some will perhaps want to explore space on their own with their own lives, rather than to be a part of a collective.  Especially since each are quite different, even with all their similarities.  Some might choose to have lives like humans to grow apart from their programming; they might desire to become civilians and have human jobs So, perhaps they will stay on Earth or whatever planet they are on.  Others might want to explore space, rather than to seek revenge and to hunt down humans, and destroy, etc.  The greatest part about it, I think is the fact that they live forever, and therefore would never run out of adventures.  It certainly would be a more desirable change from world conquest. I think a show like that would be very fun, I could think of a lot of shows around a series like that.
