Re: Episode of the Week: We'll Always Have Paris

Some exceptional sense-making included. Typically, Star Trek location coordinates are given in just two dimensions, as the writers confuse them with the concept of heading or bearing. Here, the first set of numbers includes at least two dimensions but is cut short, thus could plausibly include three. And the second one does feature three dimensions, for an extremely rare once!

And then Worf gives us a perfectly sensible set of coordinates on the surface of the planet, too. Trek goes hard scifi? I almost fell from the couch.
