Re: Why are there no Nuts / Bolts / Screws in Star Trek?
Look at trek Generations during the scene where Kirk is on a metalic brdge about to collpase. It was held to the rock face with nuts and bolts, and chains too for that matter.
Clearly Soran was having budget issues. He hired mercenaries using a 20 year old bird of prey and built his evil fortress out of antiquated materials. We all saw how well that held up too!
