Star Trek: Armada III - The Final Frontier begins with the first stirrings of the Dominion War and allows players to take command of five unique factions, the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Star Empire, the Cardassian Union/Dominion Alliance, and the Borg Collective. Explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before.

As Picard says, "It would've been a more fitting legacy if the message had not fallen on such deaf ears."

'The Chase' is a fantastic episode with a great message, one that more people should take to heart.

Ugh, I put the Preservers in the same bin that I put Threshold. The one marked "never open". While it has some decent moments especially the bit with the Romulan and Picard, the whole idea that "aliens did it" doesnt sit well with me in the end.

I think its a way for the star trek writers to try and tie a reason into the universes lore to why they all look largely the same, just with a few cosmetic differences and such largely.

The whole 'Preservers' thing is almost entirely from expanded canon. In truth, we know nothing about this race other than what is stated in the episode. I'm happy with that and don't feel the need to expand on them any further.

I just love the idea of an ancient, looong dead race leaving behind a simple message - 'We were here. We existed. Don't forget us.' I think that's kind of tragically beautiful.

Reminds me of the final monologue from Last of the Mohicans in that sense

Description

"You're wondering who we are. Why we have done this. How it has come that I stand before you, the image of a being from so long ago. Life evolved on my planet before all others in this part of the galaxy. We left our world, explored the stars, and found none like ourselves. Our civilisation thrived for ages, but what is the life of one race, compared to the vast stretches of cosmic time? We knew that one day we would be gone, that nothing of us would survive. So, we left you. Our scientists seeded the primordial oceans of many worlds, where life was in its infancy. The seed codes directed your evolution toward a physical form resembling ours - this body you see before you, which is, of course, shaped as yours is shaped. For you are the end result. The seed codes also contained this message, which we scattered in fragments on many different worlds. It was our hope that you would have to come together in fellowship and companionship to hear this message. And if you can see and hear me, our hope has been fulfilled. You are a monument - not to our greatness, but to our existence. That was our wish - that you, too, would know life, and would keep alive our memory. There is something of us in each of you, and so something of you in each other. Remember us."

"That's all!? If she were not dead, I would kill her!"

"The very notion that a Cardassian could have anything in common with a Klingon! It turns my stomach!"

----------

"Captain, my ships are leaving orbit for Romulan space. Until our next encounter."

"Until then."

"It would seem that we are not completely dissimilar after all, in our hopes, or in our fears."

"Yes."

"Well, then...perhaps, one day..."

"One day."
