Honestly, I never understood how Commander Riker could read the registry on the false Yamato
. The angle that the ship appeared on the viewer wouldn't permit a reading of the registry.
After all these years of knowing Star Trek, I have come to expect inconsistency is the norm. I wish there weren't as many inconsistencies; I feel it doesn't help the franchise.
I am reading the latest Haynes manual, on the Klingon BoP, and enjoying it immensely. I am planning to buy the First 150 Years of Federation History.
