Re: The Single Worst Line of Dialogue in the entire Star Trek Franchis

Not the worst line, but one that always bugs me: When the Fesarius pulls up in front of the Enterprise and Spock says "Must be a mile in diameter!"

Given that the Enterprise is almost 1,000 feet long, a mile-diameter Fesarius would be a tad over 5 1/4 times the length of the E. The effect shows it to be a LOT bigger than that.

Also, for a guy who regularly estimates things down to 3 decimal places, "must be a mile..." is pretty sloppy.
