Re: Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years

But the blurb is on the outside of a work supposedly published in 2311 by members of an interstellar civilization. You'd think they'd get it right.

I know it's a minor thing to gripe about, but the rampant abuse of "intergalactic" has been a pet peeve of mine for decades. The most egregious example is probably in the TV-listings description for the original Total Recall, which called it "intergalactic intrigue." Earth to Mars? Intergalactic?! *sob*
