For all things funz related.

Like what fucking holodeck programs did Miles and O'Brien get up to if those are their weapons of choice?

Why didn't starfleet go balls-deep into the literal aimbot gun they had that could transport bullets through walls?

Because they aren't very smart. Though they do in novels and it's suprisingly effective against Borg

Because it relies on transporters that are incredibly unreliable?

Personally I think a better question is why anyone in the star trek universe ever bothers with personal weapons in the first place. Those transporters they have on all planets and ships, while unreliable as a means of getting around, would be incredible anti-personnel weapons. You don't need to do a proper teleportation, you don't even need a proper lock on, just to get at least part of the targets mass and dissolve it to nothing, to kill someone and they can clearly many targets rapidly.

If you have time, just teleport the heads off everyone you don't like, if you don't have time to do it with finese, just grab random mass, ideally organic, within a 1 meter radius of the targets center of mass and poof it out of existence, no muss with rematerialising it anywhere. The ships computer should be able to automatically do that to any boarding party that tries to beam on to your ship, or the crew of nearby hostile ships the second their shields drop.

It's Calarts. They don't teach people how to draw.

Funny enough just read a Romulan comic where they did something similar to just that against the Borg before the Borg ended up adapting. https://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Star-Trek-Operation-Assimilation/Full?id=77941#18

Mentioned this in another thread. Other random things you can do: transport poison gas into their lungs; transport all the oxygen out of the room they're in; bring a random chunk of metal to 800 degrees in a fire and then transport it into their stomach; transport the contents of a pressurized oxygen tank into the room, causing a shockwave when it expands (and probably then causing an explosion when the heating ignites it). Hell, if you just want to "stun" them, transport away a sliver of their spinal cord just below the brainstem; instant quadruplegia! They can beam it back in there later after they've been captured. Or beam out everyone's brains in their entirety, press the "shuffle" button, and beam them back in and watch as hilarity ensues.

>The borg can't against bullets

Really this was the stupidest misread of the Borg ever. The original BoBW borg adapted to anything you threw at them, so if you were shooting them with guns, they'd fabricate armor plating or energy shields against projectiles (which exist in star trek). Ronald D Moore bastardized this in First Contact to be that they were vulnerable to bullets and knives.

To be fair, none of the Borg in FC had a chance to adapt to either of those. Picard shot two drones in the space of a few seconds, and Worf just sliced up one of them.

Although, it's rather unrealistic that the Borg have never encountered ANY sort of weapon in the history of their existence. By the time the Enterprise encounters them, they should have already been adapted to counter literally anything they could throw at them.

About all you could do is put pictures of different species' weapons and then stereotypes about them. Especially the melee weapons because they're usually very stupidly designed. The guns are all pretty much the same.

thats ineffective, why would you run 16 different forms or freq of energy sheilding and bulky physical shielding (for a fungible drone) when you could just wait for a few to die and then make a targeted defense. The feds are still fucked when the borg show up in enough numbers (unless it happens onscreen).

Also remember that an individual drone is pretty much worthless to the Collective. They're only worth protecting when you've lost a lot of them or if this particular drone is doing something important

I'm surprised you don't see more telefragging in the Star Trek universe. It's enough of a hazard that even goddamn Harry Kim had his leg shattered by it in one of the voyager books.

It's for the same reasons that you don't see the transporter, warp speed, replicator, super-mega-space-computers, holodeck, or phasers used for any one of the few hundred things they could potentially do. Either it would break all the tension in the show from that point onwards (lots of those techs are basically 'I win' buttons in almost every scenario we can imagine at the moment), or the writers either didn't think of it or thought that the story would be better without it.

With great power comes great responsibility. Whenever the writers implemented potentially world-breaking powerful technologies like transporters and replicators, they had a responsibility to establish them in canon in such a way that the potential for misuse or plotholes by other writers is mitigated.

I'm not sure they did this sufficiently in TOS, but it wouldn't have mattered because once the timeskip happened with TNG they would have had to re-establish these brakes and apply them to the new technologies as well, like the holodeck. The TNG writers never did and so you end up with all the world-breaking bullshit like warp-capable shuttles, replicators the size of dishwashers that can be given to colonists and personal 'holo-emitters'

Of course, ideally a show like strek would have some kind of master document (preferably used by every one of the shows, games, books etc that use the shared IP) that explains what these techs do, what has been established as impossible for them, the various ways you can wreck the setting with them if you're not careful, and all the rules the writers have established to keep them interesting without being OP. Any deviation from that document would have to be very carefully considered with at least a few people thinking through what it would potentially mean for future episodes.

With something like that we wouldn't have pocket nuke phasers, intelligent holo-characters (I know losing the EMH would be a blow, but it's a colossal plot hole waiting to happen), and it would probably have saved us from STD (or at least its ridiculous drive system). Then again, maybe we're just here to suffer.

Show Bibles exist and are considered standard practice for most if not all (american) shows, but how (and if) they are enforced differs show to show and at the disgression of show writers and series execs, so the document probably exists, just nobody cared.

Every show has a bible, it's even easier these days for a writer to keep up with the lore and the canon with Memory Alpha.
