  1. This is the same idiocy that causes keyboards to explode with enough force to kill a person on Star Trek.

    I’m not kidding. The stated reason is that the “super-advanced” technology behind the touchscreens is so ENERGY INEFFICIENT that instead of a small amount of electricity, the stupid things require a constant feed of PLASMA, as in the super-hot stuff that STARS ARE MADE OF. They also don’t have surge protectors, which is why whenever the bottom of the ship gets hit part of the Bridge on top of the ship blows up.

    • Well…of course you and I both know that the only reason they have the explosions is for dramatic effect. People like to watch stuff blow up, see. And since the bridge is where all the action takes place, well…

      But yeah, their justifications for it are pretty weak when you apply real world science to them. After awhile you either just have to learn to overlook it or stop watching.

      • I spent years accepting the hand-waving and technobabble, but at some point around Enterprise I just kind of lost interest.

  2. Must have been one of those toy cars big enough for a child to actually drive., witch is weird because the controls are in the car. Stephen must have modified it.

  3. As much as it disgusts me to give any credit to Umbridge…”Progress for the sake of progress must be discouraged.” We need to carefully consider everything rather than always plowing forward blindly
