    Data: We were able to retrieve this time capsule that was launched into
    space a few hours before word war III started.

    It was a probe with ion propulsion and its intention was to preserve all the
    information from the global computer network they
    called the "internet". It had crashed on this large asteroid.

    Picard: This discovery is of monumental value... all information of that
    ancient network had been thought as lost! Have you been able to retrieve the
    data?

    Data: No Sir. Only a decade after its launch the galaxies core went into its
    unstable radiant neutron phase, and this was not known by the scientists of
    the era, so they did not give any space vehicles the proper shielding to
    preserve data.
    We were able only to retrieve small portions of it.

    Picard: Well what did you find?

    Data: the first data we were able to get was from a newsgroup, a
    conversation network
    with people posting message in written text format, talking about a
    operating system called Vista.

    Picard: Vista? You got to be kidding.

    Data: I am incapable of kidding you Captain.

    Picard: I know Data, I know... its surprising to see that you found these
    people talking about the very reason that the war started...
    What are they saying?

    Data: The data we have is at a time a few days this operating system is to
    be released. Some people are praising it Sir as something nice or good
    for humanity.

    Picard: Yes... they could not see the future and the impact this software
    would have on the world then. Is ANYONE expressing concern of any kind?
    Its hard to believe that no one had any foresight!

    Data: There are a few people in this conversation that are expressing
    concern, some even predict some of the problems that indeed were true,
    but for some reason the other people who want this "Vista" have a universal
    name for all of them.

    Picard: What is it?

    Data: Troll Sir. I do not understand why they are calling them a
    mythological humanoid, but it is apparent that they find pleasure in doing
    so.

    Picard: It is a shame that all these people died soon after the release of
    that Operating System...

    Data: Indeed Sir, it was a very badly designed program, our historians have
    counted 1 million mistakes in the code.

    Picard: This was what the borg took advantage of.... its a sad story... oh
    Data, please.....

    Data: Sir?

    Picard: Make sure that the Enterprise's computers are not contaminated by
    any of that Vista code that may have leaked into the time capsule, please.
    We dont need any trouble with the borg again.

    Data: Indeed Sir....

    :)

    Data: Sir I believe I pinpointed the entry point of the borg contamination
    attack.

    Picard: Really?

    Data: It was from a computer that was owned by a user called "Justin"
    He was one of the people who praised Vista.

    Picard: Data do you think this Justin fellow may have be working for the
    borg?

    Data: From the text messages that I am accessing, he seems to have the borg
    mentality.
    Not saying anything original.... I however have no proof of his involvement.

    Picard: Enough.... continue with Gordi the efforts of retrieving other
    information of interest from the capsule... we have had enough of borg
    history for one night.....

    LOL here we go again... I think we are traped into a temporal loop!

    concern, some even predict some of the problems that indeed were true,
    but for some reason the other people who want this "Vista" have a universal

    not use it in a more useful productive way.

  14. What talent? All he did was copy something from Win95 days, and change
    the characters names from Kirk & Spock to Picard & Data and replaced the
    Klingons with the Borg. There wasn't a single original thought there.

  16. Picard: It appears that they do not understand that laughter is the best
    medicine. A good sense of humor fixes many ills.

    Data: Yes sir, I agree.

    this is not true... this was an original concept writen for this newsgroup
    today!

    I have never read any other such stories... and if they exist.. and you find
    them,
    you will clearly see that they do not have many things in common....
    unless ..... great minds think alike!

    but I am curious.. can someone tell me where I can find this kirk- spock
    story?

    this story
