my 1st biggest fear would be the airport idiots destroying it

In the future, computers will have lots of unlabelled buttons. All you'll need to do is remember what color and what shape and what size does what. Easy!

I'm still trying to figure out how the Federation went from the long distance holographic communications systems of Star Trek: Discovery to the candy-like buttons of Star Trek: TOS.

you're not going to like my answer but

they're not in the same universe.

I don't have an official source for that, I just believe they're just not.

But at some point Pike said he preferred normal screens... so maybe they got deprecated at some point? Maybe holo-transmission became unsafe at some point?

Also, they're TV shows and TOS was a low budget show in the 60s.

Those aren't buttons.

Uhura had a lot of fellas giving her candies.

I think the more startling aspect of that picture is that it seems to involve a lot of crappy welding and epoxy. How the hell did that ship even leave orbit, much less zip across the galaxy?

The producers assumed your eye would be focused on the short skirt and the rack.

I actually read a post about this just the other day!
It has something to do with Capt. Pike going all Adama and having the tech on the Enterprise downgraded for ... reliability?
... pretty sure it was Gizmodo or i09, but I can't find it now ...

There was a blog post in my feed this morning that claimed Section 31 (and the Discovery, which was owned/operated by Section 31) had technology significantly more advanced than Starfleet at large.

as explanations go, that will do

they sure as hell can't make a 21st century show with 1960s tech design

Needs to be much smaller, then we can 'accidentally' step on them.

Those figures must be really expensive. At least if you buy them from that guy.

And even if Quark was a great character, I wouldn't buy one. But mostly because I hate Ferengis.

That poster smacks of “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”.
i'm pretty sure if you've built a time machine you wouldn't need to know 99% of that information.

I don't think that's real. I googled it, couldn't find anything.

But I kinda want one.


Byte stopped publishing a magazine in 98, so I don't think that's real.
