Re: LCARS input

How? Obviously, by tapping various buttons labelled 3069, 1987, 4077, 12314123124123124 in carefully memorized sequences, which is harder than typing an SMS on a dialpad. But then, once the user's competence has been confirmed by the AI (and this is when the camera does a closeup out-of-universe), some of the obscure numbers are helpfully replaced with readable text, though a few remain in corners and such, to be unlocked by further memorized sequences. Essentially it's a security feature, allowing only trained Starfleet crewmembers to access the full LCARS functionality.
