Re: Why are there no Nuts / Bolts / Screws in Star Trek?
In all of the episodes that I've watched which consists of all of
TNG, DS9, VOY, & ENT, I've never seen a single screw, nut or bolt, even a rivet in the future.
If there were no bolts, then what was the intended purpose of Ben Finney's crescent wrench?
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
