I dunno. They thought back in the 1960's that we'd be zipping around in flying cars, but we aren't. And last I heard, Avery Brooks is still angry about that.

I really hope there’s a good fucking explanation for this dilithium thing. Dilithium doesn’t bloody blow up. Trilithium does. Surely they can’t have confused the two? I do wonder whether the lack of an Okuda to point these things out is what lies behind some of the howlers nuTrek throws up.

(though there were howlers even then! Oh, sure, of course the Dominion would outsource the production of the drug that keeps their soldiers loyal to a bunch of gangsters like the Son’a, that makes perfect sense, I can’t possibly imagine what might go wrong there...)

It’s pretty ironic now that DSC ignores so much of the trappings of its original time period, when we have LDS that - for all it’s set 15 years after it ended - faithfully renders the look of a TNG-period show.

The work of eco-terrorists? Or some dastardly enemy?

Yeah, you’d think that by the 32nd century, Starfleet would be able to use the Borg’s transwarp conduits or reverse engineer them for their own use. You don’t need warp engines if you’re just using a conduit to get places.

"A film made in 2008 isn't going to look like a TV series from 1966 if it wants to make any money. As long as the characters act the same way, and the spirit of the story remains the same then it's "real" Star Trek. Everything else is window dressing." -StCoop
