Move/Rename to more appropriate name Edit
I'm considering renaming this page to "Hirogen Subspace Relay Network." I think that "Subspace Relay Network" should be reserved for a more general posting about the ideas of Subspace Relay Networks since we know that multiple species have their own networks. What would be the best way to pull this off? Rename this page? Create new page and update all links to the new page? I'm new to this and this is my first page to "fill out" --BRoberds 05:38, 11 Jan 2005 (CET)
Who built the Hirogen network? Edit
I do not think it at all believable that the Hirogen built it. They seem like a nomadic people, not an empire-building people. IF the network is indeed 100 millennia old, far more likely that it was built by an ancient race, perhaps the Preservers, and after they died out, the network was discovered and taken control of by one or another race. The Hirogen may, in fact, be the third party to "own" it, having perhaps seized it from another race that became Hirogen prey.
I cannot think of the Hirogen as having any practical use for relay points very far away, but may view it as a useful tool as their nomadic groups gradually spread out around the galaxy, to retain a common identity and purpose.
By the looks of it, the network only covers a small portion of Federation space, and perhaps not much more Romulan space. If the Federation had only explored more of the Beta Quadrant, they might have discovered it and then taken control of it before the Hirogen and put it to use for the benefit of peaceful activities of all species.
