It is possible that Borg do in fact exist and gas prices

I was thinking about this earlier as I looked at the gas prices here that are $3.45 a gallon. Uncessary. This got me to thinking why would the gas prices be so high?


Then the thought came. The privatization of space flight has only come into being within the last several years where space flight has been controlled by the governments of the world and thus limited.


Now space exploration is not limited to government efforts to colonize space based upon collection taxes but is so aligned that now everyday citizens off Earth can assist the private space industry by donating if they so choose to.


If the price of gas would have been the same price now as it was during Clintons time in office which the price was around .95 cents per gallon then the private space industry would have alot more money available to them now based upon citizens being able to donate to the private space industry.


But with the increase in gas prices the ability for space advocates to supply the private space industry with funds is now severly limited.


This fits in perfect with a Borg attempt to go back in time and effect the politics of the world so that the private citizens would not be able to or severaly limited to providing funds for a private space exploration boom.


If the Borg are in fact real and have come back through time they would know that the first steps for the Federation would have been explore and colonize the Moon and Mars.


Creating a high gas price would cause citizens to not be able to afford supporting the private space industry which would push the development of humanity to become a space based species back to a point where the invention of close to light speed velocities would attract other species in or around the Sol System.


With the limitations placed upon humanities ability to assist the private space industry the Borg might in fact be pushing humanity to a point in time where something devastating occurs to Earth where because of our advances in space exploration and exploration the Earth would have been saved allowing humanity to continue its trek into space to one day encounter and defeat a Borg type species. But with a limitation on monetary assistance such timeline would not be met in time thus curtailing the ability of the Future Federation to mount an assault on the Borg which would then be free to assimilate at will...including Earth.

I've wondered how Borg could travel in space as I realized by then they had Transwarp Conduits. With the violation of the Temporal Accords, which is actualy at the present time on Trek not existent, they attempted to interfier with the First Contact. For me is today the World's population in biotechnology obviously not far from being the Borg.

Dryson, I think you need to get on some medication or something...just saying. Star Trek is awesome, but it's still a tv series. The Borg are not real and they are not effecting gas prices. The US buying oil from the towel heads who hate us instead of drilling our own oil because the liberal environmenatalists all think we need to hug tree's be careful to not violate the rights of a squirrel is what is driving up gas prices. It isn't a plot against us from the Borg Collective....it's posts like this that give Trekkies such a bad name and why people think we're all crazy and live in basements....

This thread sounds like the epitome of the unfair "nutty-nerd" stereotype about trekkers.

The price of petrol has more to do with the fact that fossil fuels are far more limited than they once were. The space tourism industry is miniscule so far. If oil prices were anything to do with the space programme, then we would have seen a significant rise in the '60s as well.

Recently, some service stations for municipal agencies have started experimenting with electric vehicles and places for them to be recharged.  If this catches on, the Borg would wind up with petroleum on their faces!

No it isn't cause that post doesn't reinforce an already existing unfair stereotype about trekkers.

I would also just like to say that yes that is what is driving up gas prices, because we do have a limited supply because the oil we get from the middle east, who have cut us off before by the way, and it's common economics. The more you have, the lower the price, the less you have the higher the price. We could lower gas prices right now, today, just by saying we're going to start drilling our own oil in the United States and stop buying from our enemies. We could do it ourself, and bring gas prices back down to 1.00 per gallon or less. We have some of the best oil reserves in the world, but the envrionmentalists won't allow it cause they think it's going to cause global warming or something equally as stupid...so instead China will probably just invade us, execute the environmentalists, dril our oil and then sell it back to us for triple the price it took for them to do it


The rest of world views us as stupid because that is exactly what we have become.

Not "tree-hugging"! Long term biodiversity is more important than the cost of petrol.


And I have to call you out on this: Don't get me started on "towelheads".

Yes but the bottom line is, the other countries don't give a flying flip about biodiversity, they are going to do whatever makes sense to them, which most of the time is what works. And I doubt many struggling American families are thankful for long term biodiversity when they have to choose between putting food on the table or putting gas in the car.


Drilling oil is not harmful to the environment. It's all propaganda, and half truths. Volcano's erupting billions of years ago put out more carbon and more pollution than any man made thing has, and yet we're still here and we're just dandy! The world is not nearly as fragile as the media would like you to think. Most of the environmental stuff, pollution, global warming etc... is no more than half truths put together by politicians who don't want you having any control in your own life, who think everyone should be controled by the federal government, except for themselves, of course, because the average person isn't "smart enough" to make their own decisions and we need the government to think for us so we won't do anything they don't happen to like.


The sooner this country wakes up and realizes that they have allowed themselves to be brainwashed and controlled the past 3 to 5 decades the better off we'll all be.

Sora, aren't you the one who made a thread about Trek being future history? Do you really think calling Muslims "towelheads" and denying scientific evidence of climate change is helping us make that future a reality?

Actually there is some nut that’s implanting chips n things in to his body so he can control things like robots and computers in Brittan some place so I guess there will be some humans that might take this fantasy maybe a bit further.

Not really much different than Archer calling Xindi Insectoids "Overgrown grasshoppers" they too played a big part in killing innocent people as do Muslims.


And yes I do want to see that future become a reality, I want to see the technological advancements made, I hope to see Warp Drive a reality someday. But that doesn't mean I'm going to blinded to the fact that as of today, we have people in this world who hate us and want us dead, and putting our weapons down does not make them think we are couragous, it makes them think we are weak. I believe that most nations will someday be able to join together and create a world federation, but that will never happen with Muslims, they have no tolorance for anyone who won't convert to their religion. And you may notice, throughout every bit of Star Trek, there are many, many human races all serving together, all at peace, but you've never seen a muslim in Star Trek. That is the only race that will always refuse peace.


I wish we could make peace with them, but in the words of Captain Picard "Wishing for a thing does not make it so."


And as far as "climate change" goes....global warming just somewhat worn out and the politicians still needed something else to try and tax the American people even more with, so they changed it from global warming to climate change to keep people in fear that they are destroying the planet by not paying higher taxes....I love Star Trek, and I love what it stands for, but I also believe it stands for something slightly different than what most people believe it does.


Star Trek is about peace, but it's also about standing up against something or someone when something is wrong and or stupid. In Star Trek there is no political correctness. People say what's on their minds, and Starfleet doesn't back down to it's enemies because they're worried their enemy might be offended or not like them if they fight back... Peace is the ultimate goal but if the federation is forced to fight, they will fight and they will wipe out whoever opposes them. The federation is what The United States used to be and what it still should be and isn't anymore.
