>>106872949>a net that's thousands of kilometers in size
I don't know why you think this is difficult. This is Star Trek. A replicator can make one in seconds. Have you ever watched Star Trek?>hard enough to push through mines we'll just like grab them all WHOOSH in a big net!
What the fuck are you talking about? Nothing needs to be grabbed.
The net approaches the mines. Either A, the mines blow up, or B, the mines don't blow up but you know their physical location because the net stops moving
If A, the Dominion wins, because the mines can only replicate themselves a finite number of times, and the mines just expended a shitton of energy. Repeat with more nets until the mines run out completely and can't replicate any more.
If B, the Dominion wins, because the mines have their physical locations revealed, and the Dominion can shoot them with a phaser. Which is exactly what happened in the show. In DS9, the Dominion figured out their physical locations and shot them with a phaser.
You're trying to tell me that the solution they used in DS9 wouldn't work in DS9.
