Re: TSFS Destruct Sequence: Why Chekov?
What troubles me more about the sequence is the fact that even after 15 years and a major refit, they hadn't changed the codes. Of course, the need to change passwords is more apparent to us now in this age of multiple passwords and identity theft then it was in 1983. Even so, it seems at the very least the codes would have been changed after "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" seeing as everyone on the bridge got to hear not only the codes, but the abort code as well.
Maybe they change the code every month but it cycles back every 15 years.
And that's my opinion.
