Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas

Then Kirk offered to pay for Uhura's drink in Star Trek (2009), re-un-retconning it. Sort-of.
Except:

"Credit systems, tabs, even expense accounts, all existed long before cash. These things are as old as civilization itself." David Graeber - Debt: The First 5,000 Years. page 18.

Doesn't necessarily mean Kirk was going to use money to cover for Uhura's drink.

"Non-excludability and non-rivalry." Young Spock (Star Trek 2009), Anyone else catch that line?
