It never ceases to amaze me how much thought and energy can be poured into trying to explain a piece of techno-babble, or, as DS9Sega called it, a minor MacGuffin.
I think it's the way it's so vaguely dealt with in the episode (yet plays a pivitol part) that keeps people coming back for more! I am continually impressed at the evolving theology surrounding this "Minor MacGuffin" - Treknology at its finest!
