Re: Follow up for 'The 37's'

^All I'm saying is, it's a mistake in real life, so there's no reason it can't be a mistake in fiction as well. Yes, they have search engines, but we have search engines today, yet you still see egregious errors in the news all the time. Hell, sometimes Google results in more errors showing up on the news because there's so much bad information out there along with the good information. Search engines are only as good as their wielders.

So I'm sorry, but I'm not going to assume American history unfolded differently in the Trek universe just because of a passing reference in an art book from a decade and a half ago.
