Re: is all that engineering & physics stuff true?

The relationship between science and technobabble in Star Trek is tangential at best. Sometimes there's a little overlap, more often they use vaguely correct words in incorrect contexts, and more often still it's just pulled out of their Borg collective ass to serve plot purpose.

When Star Trek does technobabble well, there's an internal consistency to work with and some vague element of pseudoplausible science.
