    i'll take a lot however...if you have a few (a lot) million years at your disposal, they yeah.
    of course our galaxy is young. some 13 billions years...some theorize the universe can last for thousands of trillions of years before...well, put in you favorite 'end of the universe' scenario: Heat death of the universe, Big Rip,Big Crunch, Big Bounce

    umm, the universe is 13-14 billion years old.

    Although it does seem odd that three of those four sound like bad fart jokes...

    Has anybody read else Iain M. Bank's "Culture" novels?

    Things I like about the Culture:

    • Every human being has access to virtually unlimited resources.
    • There is no need for money.
    • Society is run largely by super-intelligent artificial intelligences, leaving humans to enjoy themselves in whatever manner they see fit (with a few enforced moral constraints).
    • Travelling the galaxy is fast and safe, with a form of hyperdrive available as well as short distance teleportation.
    • Robots (drones) are available to assist humans when needed, though these are also autonomous human-level intelligences on their own behalf.
    • Culture ships can kick ass when necessary if there is a major threat to the Culture or its inhabitants. A Culture ship can easily destroy a planet or even a star.
    • Society is socially permissive and non-violent.
    • Lots of fun places to live and visit - like Spheres (essentially Dyson spheres) and Orbitals (kind-of cutaway Dyson spheres), as well as on the ships which are easily able to reconfigure their internal spaces to whatever environment is desired. Ships can be hundreds of kilometres long. Orbitals and Spheres are much larger than that.
    • All humans are essentially equal in terms of "wealth" (which is a fairly meaningless concept in the Culture), rights and opportunities.

    Actualy I have the perfect answer to the Replicators. One Rifts Mind Melter. Techno Wizard, Gizmoteer, or Psi-Tech. Each of them has access to a power that literally lets them take over ANY machine even Sentient ones. No save, no reistance, the Replicators felled with a single thought. Same could be true of the borg.

    Although there is the one advantage the borg have, the machine assimilation of replicators and the biological assimilation of the tyranids. While they aren't better then those two in their respective fields they are a good combination.

    all though the borg can adapt to any form of powerbased weapons they can't adapt to melee weapons making them vonurable for today's weapons.

    Google the Shrike. Its from the Hyperion series. It would take down pretty much anything one on one.

    Also in the series, the ability to make a permanent worm hole with no destructive distortions. There is a river that runs through all of humanities worlds. The SAME river, it just flows from one worm hole to the other. If you are very rich you can have your house have rooms on different planets. You open the door in one house and the door is actually a worm hole to the other house.

    Really the only war stuff they talk about is shooting the Shrike from space with a fricken capitol ship weapon. The shrike was fine but it was stuck where the ground around it melted and it sunk in because it couldn't move because of pressure of the weapon.
