Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

TOS generally stated temperatures in Fahrenheit because it's made for an American audience, and we still go by that scale, despite the best efforts of the rest of the world to force us onto the metric system and Celsius temp measurements.

I think it's a trait we inherited from the British (ask a Brit about the last time the continent tried to make them drive on the right side of the road).
