Re: The Constellation's registry number

But there is no point. Star Trek keeps being written, which is different from being rewritten - because there's infinite space to write it into. It is actually extremely seldom that new writing in any way overlaps with old writing, and even on those rare occasions there's enough elbow room to put the two pieces of pseudo-information side by side rather than one atop another.

Which is why it's so easy to "nitpick" any claims of overlap: not only are the claims based on very little evidence, but the very genre allows for an infinite range of apologies, as there is no inherent need for them to "be realistic" here.
