Today’s wallpaper is from an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation titled Q Who. Jean-Luc Picard’s nemesis Q pays a visit to the Enterprise with an unusual offer. He wants to join the crew of the Enterprise and suggests he renounce his powers to demonstrate his goodwill. But Picard isn’t fooled by Q’s attempt at helpfulness and rejects his offer. This enrages Q and to show Picard the error of his ways and prove that space is full of dangers humanity is not yet ready to face, he hurls the Enterprise across the galaxy into an uncharted region. Unable to quell his curiosity, Picard decides to explore the area before starting their long journey back. What happens next has lasting effects on Picard, the Enterprise and her crew and the entire Federation. Q has put humanity on a collision course with the Borg, an unstoppable race of cybernetic beings bent on the assimilation of all life in the galaxy. The Enterprise’s encounter with the Borg changed the Star Trek universe forever. The Borg will come to shape events in the lives of many Starfleet officers including Jean-Luc Picard, Benjamin Sisko and Katheryn Janeway. The wallpaper today features the Enterprise’s first encounter with the Borg as they slice out a section of the hull in order to learn more about humans and develop an efficient way to assimilate them.
