Originally, "Because I'm not a nice guy." One producer chided us, tongue-in-cheek, that "you don't write the stilted 'Star Trek' language, damn it!"
She was being nice, as there's certainly enough else about the script that's stilted.
Thanks for the kind words, all.
Any plans to ever show the unstilted version of your script? I've always been pretty curious as to what some of "Trek's writing rules" are. Especially with how often RDM brings it up in his commentaries.
