The idea is to create a sentence that to non-scientists, sounds fairly scientific. But to scientists, it's utter bull-oney.
Does it have to be based on a sentence? There are plenty of things seen in Trek that would make most scientists scoff.

Totally lifeless planets with oxygen atmospheres. Ancient, derelict spacecraft adrift in space for centuries, but with still perfectly functioning gravity, lighting, air and heat. Human-looking "aliens" everywhere.

Hell, just show 'em a shot of a spaceship traveling faster than light!
