Re: Incredible inconsistency in "Concerning Flight"
I guess you could rationalize that Paris, as a student of the 1950s, used archaic slang, but then why would he expect anyone to understand him?.
Remember that he's serving with several former Maquis. I suspect they know what it's like to be mugged having dealt with Cardassians so often.
