Re: Why are there no Nuts / Bolts / Screws in Star Trek?
Frankly, I'm more curious as to why there's an "L" in solder, since it isn't pronounced. It is with bolder, colder, folder, holder... Maybe they thought there would be too much confusion with "sod", a kind of soil.
In the UK, "sod" has quite a different meaning.
