Q recently got very very very bored. So he transported all SD member to the Trek Galaxy. Each member recieves a personal Executor Class Super Star Destroyer. Its fully manned and everyone on there is fully loyal to you and only you. You have only 1 year supply of food.

Food wouldn't be a problem seeing as how anyone with a SSD could simply take it by force. :roll:

Q could snap his fingers and make all rations/foodstuffs disappear altogether. That still wouldn't change a thing.

The weirdest part of this scenario would be the sudden presence of over 3,000 SSD's in the ST universe.

Yeah, but over a thousand of them would just sit there and do nothing.

Also, shouldn't this belong in Star Wars?

This is the right forum...there's a ST/SW crossover of sorts involved.

Shit. You're right. I misread his post and missed the "Trek galaxy" part.

I think I'd have to BDZ Risa just because I hate that fucking planet.

First, a question - where do we start? Do we show up in the same spot same time, or are we dispersed throughout the whole galaxy?

And since I'm the first one to voice it, I'm claiming the right to BDZ the planet Neelix' planet! 8)

After escaping my destroyed ship in an escape pod, I wonder why Lord Pounder decided to enter the same space I was in and, for no particular reason, attack me.

Bargaining for food is going to be slightly more difficult in an Executor rather than an Eclipse. Either way, I'll joyride around the galaxy until someone shoots at me, at which point I will find their world and demand tribute.

If every single member here got their own Executor, I'd do the following with mine:

1. Go directly to Borg space.
2. Destroy Borg homeworld & every last ship of theirs.
3. Make a deal with them - they either become my manufacturing base, or become a footnote in history.
3a. If they resist, I'll make sure lots of footage is taken of before and after. You know, for the ST equivalent of Discovery Channel or something.
3b. If they accept, I have them take the plans for some of the ship designs in my Executor's database, modify them, and begin large scale construction. I also setup a hypermatter containment and refining facility where appropriate, guarding it personally until enough ships are ready to do patrols.
4. I'd encourage my crew to fraternize. Often. Moar baebies = good, considering I'll need more personnel.
5. Once my powerbase was firmly established, I'd form alliances with a good number of other SD.N denizens I get along with, eventually a semi-democratic union of sorts that takes over the Milky Way, mostly through peaceful means.
6. Force the Borg to form their own Limited Liability Company under my directorship. (thank you, Sonnenburg)
7. It only gets weirder from here.

Why is that exactly?

Any way, I suspect that we would all just carve out a small spot in the galaxy and call it our own. Some of the more crabby members might try to take others out, but over all I think the general opinion would be to consolidate power and conqure the UNIVERSE!!

I just thought that not being able to slag a world in a second would give the opposition a false sense of hope, along with some defiance. But I agree that finding somewhere uninhabited to set roots would be a good idea.

i myself would take over a industrial planet. i would then begin to refit the ssd with railguns to suplement the turbolazers, add two railguns to each of AT-ATs creating make shift Mammoth MKIIs. i would then start the contruction of multiple missiles armmed with large anti-matter warheads and hyper-drive, making the first Inter-Galactic Balsitic Missiles or IGBMs for short. i then procede to decimate risa as an example, for all of those who wish to mess with me. i finaly rename the ssd the "Excalabur," or after some other sword.

I'll sit back a few lightyears beyond the galaxy, wait for all of you to kill each other off, then swoop in and pick up the pieces.

Actually, an Eclipse Class has a scaled down superlaser, giving it greater firepower than a SSD.

Is there some way I can take over the other 3000 or so SSD's? Ask my engineers to get to work on that.

If so, my plans include wide scale galactic conquest, as well as extra-galactic conquest.

Otherwise.

I call taking over the Federation.

Sure, there incompetent, but hey, Earth is still Earth, and at least I know there biologically compatiable with my crew.

I think you have them reversed. In either case, both ships can BDZ a planet into glass. Hell, I'd settle for the Tantive IV seeing as how SW tech is so ridiculously overpowered compared to ST.

Since my faith in the rationality and even morality of some on the boards is suspect, I'd go Outbound Flight. Take the ship outside the galaxy and look for greener pastures to take without dealing with the internal squabbling. Space is still vast even with hyperdrive.

Shame your fueltanks aren't? Isn't the range on an Executor like 250k light years?

I don't know about the Executor specifically but generally ICS ship ranges are DEFINITELY intragalactic. The good Captain will definitely need underway refueling.
