Someone find Jonah & tell him to come back so he can tell us all how registry letter suffixes after refits was Matt Jeffries' original plan again.

That’s the spirit!
On social media I just seem to be snarking on the technology depicted in this show so much. Time was there were only a handful of really insurmountable inconsistencies in Star Trek canon. Now we seem to get a new one each episode. It doesn’t necessarily affect my personal enjoyment of the show - it obviously doesn’t for many others. Most Trekkies do not dissect the show the way we do - and on which the very existence of this forum is based on. Maybe our way of doing things isn’t relevant anymore. It’s to be expected, nothing lasts forever. Most of our compatriots grew up, grew out of it, moved on to other things, got on with their lives (as we all have really - in my case, the way my brain operates makes it easy to devote some headspace to it). TL;DR maybe we need to stop trying to rationalise the irrational...

Our way is the correct way. Roddenberry made Star Trek with folks like us in mind, explicitly, and there are memos to that effect where he references folks like us alongside the concept of believability. The difference between then and now is only that now the choice is to make Star Trek without such concern and care for the product or the fans.
Or, put another way, the current Hollywood view is that dumbass money spends just as well as the money from the intelligent.
