Re: Why are there no Nuts / Bolts / Screws in Star Trek?

cuz it's the future and they've gone beyond contemporary conventional methods.

i'm no engineer or mechanic, but 200/300 years ago i don't think there were many nuts-bolts-rivets.

similarly, 200/300 years from now, they will have construction methods unknown today. you know, invention.

also: yes... self-sealing stem bolts. yes.
