Re: Design flaws - Suspension of disbelief

Speed. TOS had them zooming around the galaxy willy-nilly, treating journeys of thousands of light years as a minor side trip.

Too old? He was younger than half his predecessors!

I suppose I should back up and explain, I'm a mechanical engineer.

Re: NEXT GENERATION TECHNICAL MANUAL HUH?

I wish I could screen shot the tech manual, I did a cut and paste in the Quotations directly from the book. The copy I have may be Americanized as it doesn't have a (^) in any of the listed numbers. So it didn't have a 10^3 or a 10^15? :? 10^x is an alternate format that's a lot easier to write on ...

Re: NEXT GENERATION TECHNICAL MANUAL HUH?

Noticed something funny in the manual tonight (page #151). If the ships self destruct sequence is activated, "Matter from the primary deuterium tankage and the total supply of antimatter from the storage pods on Deck 42 are expelled simultaneously, producing an energy release on the order of 1015 m...

Re: Trek Iron Man armor

This whole discussion also comes with why doesn't Starfleet possess armor or at least a setup for their people. Best we got was the security officers in the original Trek movies that had some set up like a helmet and body armor. The helmet seems to be a bit odd but it might be more to protect head ...

Re: The Youtube video thread!

I just love the title alone. :D I can't think of any of Drach's videos that don't have a good title. Some others: Range-finding and Fire Control - Plotting Your Demise HMS Thunderchild - A bad day to be a Tripod Operation Ten-Go - The bigger they come, the harder they fall Survival at Sea - Oh Lord...

Re: Escape Pods and Survival (Star Trek)

One detail about escape pods on civilian ships, is that in space it might be safer to stay on board. Jettison the antimatter pods, bring up the onboard fusion plants, and everyone stays inside the existing ship. Assuming all of that still works Escape pods would be primarily used by space-based veh...
