Re: Star Ship Polaris
One thing we're not going to do--and I think Dennis will back me up on this one--is bog things down with a lot of tech-manual type details the way the later incarnations of Star Trek often did. It's important to have at least a general idea of what things are and how they work, but not to the point where the show needs accredited science advisors or the writer(s) need to double check that an interesting plot point they've come up with doesn't conflict with the intricate inner workings of some device or system on the ship. Starship Polaris, I expect, is going to be a mostly technobabble-free zone.
The level of on-screen
tech dialogue in "The Naked Time" is as much as interests me, ever.
I had steak and a loaded baked potato for dinner on Sunday.
As a steak I enjoyed it a lot, but as macaroni and cheese I thought it was disappointing.
