Data frequently "gets it wrong" when repeating quotes and imitating human behaviour. Throughout The Next Generation TV series and movies, Data imitates examples of human behaviour that he has observed. He often misunderstands the original context of these behaviours, making his reenactments misguided and inappropriate. Examples: Growing a beard similar ...

Star Trek is written in English, targeting its main audience; the English-speaking population. That's all! It was a nice light jab at the Franco expense and it was humorous. I'm French and I thought it was cute.

I just found this place and I think I can help you all out a little bit. In Star Trek: Enterprise the United Earth was established, in the time of the Enterprise Series. The United Earth founded Starfleet and the security council, this is part of the local planetary government of Earth and is Starfleet is the military science branch of United Earth. The ...

Main Canon There's no specific confirmation in any of the TV shows, films or official novelisations whether (or not) Romulans have a Katra. Their general lack of telepathic abilities would suggest that they don't have the ability to use them to transfer knowledge, but then again, who knows what goes on at the highest echelons of Romulan society or behind ...

The changes to the timeline - past, present and future - were erased when the anomaly ceased to have been (as confirmed by Q). Since the future that Picard had experienced was one where the anomaly existed - which it now won't have - that future has already changed, and Picard is only saying what might have happened, not what definitely will. He is then ...

Main Canon In a word, no (or possibly maybe). Admiral Nechayev is certainly adamant (in TNG: Descent) that should the opportunity present itself again to commit genocide that Picard should take it. I think it's reasonable to assume she means by using the geometry-virus but isn't limiting her order to just that one method. NECHAYEV: Your priority is to ...

Probably there was no second attempt because the federation realized that it could not work? The borg must have some subroutines that cancel analyses at some point, like when they decide "accuracy of solution is sufficient for our purpose", otherwise they would have annihilated themselves centuries ago trying to calculate PI. The same routines should also ...

All living beings have a Katra. But @Valorum's answer is correct - there's no evidence that Romulans are aware of it, or can "use" it. In Star Trek: Discovery S01E06, Lieutenant Stamets explains his understanding of the Katra concept: STAMETS: I got to say, this Katra stuff is way cool. An uncharted superhighway connecting all of conciousness and life?

So, there is a theory: In First Contact, the Borg contaminate the time line, and go to the past to assimilate Earth. Enterprise E defeats them, in part by destroying the sphere that goes back in time. The debris is scattered over the north pole. As that timeline moves to the time of the series "Enterprise", a group of researchers locates the Borg from ...

Because they traded technology From the Memory-Alpha write-up for TOS: The Enterprise Incident Kirk then inexplicably orders helmsman Sulu to take the Enterprise across the Romulan Neutral Zone and into Romulan space, where it is quickly surrounded by the Romulans – who are now using Klingon-style vessels. An effective cloaking device, meanwhile, ...

Rasmussen doesn't actually show he knows any information that a 22nd century man couldn't know (asking Data about Dr. Soong in his questionnaire, asking Riker about past enterprises) until after Rasmussen is given quarters. One could assume that since Rasmussen doesn't ask about anything classified, that he just asked the computer in his room for information,...

In Voyager, it is said that the Melbourne, the Kyushu and the Endeavor did not survive. I am going with the Saratoga because they had to pick up the remaining crew ejected in escape pods and must have had power to do it.
