When watching reruns of the original "Star Trek" series on the Sci Fi Channel this week, I came across the episode "The Doomsday Machine". If you'll recall, this was a miles-long cylindrical robot craft with a wide-open mouth that could swallow a dozen Enterprises or more, and which fired an energy beam that could slice planets to pieces. Afterwards, it "ate" the debris from those planets to refuel itself, making it a self-sustaining ultimate weapon designed by some now-extinct alien race to travel around the universe, wiping out entire solar systems and galaxies. Its body was totally invulnerable to ray attack, or at least the phasers the Federation uses. How do you think it would fare against one of the Death Stars from the "Star Wars" movies? For those of you who generally malign "Star Trek" technology, remember that this thing wasn't built by the Federation or any of its enemies or allies, but by an unknown and incredibly advanced alien race.
