Re: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home - Trial view-screen strangeness
I don't think they use cameras in the 23rd century. I think everything is a false image restoration based on sensor readings, just like the main veiw screen on the Enterprise is not a window. What ever the sensors detect, they use to create an image so the people can "see" it. It doesn't explain which sensors were detecting what, but it's been mentioned about long range sensors before.
I fail to comprehend your indignation, sir. I have simply made the logical deduction that you are a liar.
