All of Star Trek is just one big dramatic conceit. That's the "reality" of the show, especially of its fictional technology.

Problem I have is everyone wants the hero ship to be nigh perfect in every respect, that eliminates a HUGE chunk of storytelling possibility. What fun is it to travel the universe in a God-like starship that can overcome every obstacle at the push of a button? Problem-solving (man vs ____) is an essential (imo) plot element in most of the stories I enjoy.
