Re: when will they learn that a Manual Override can never be Offline?
The fail safe/manual override systems on Star Trek reminds me of the old WW2 Bugs Bunny cartoon with the Gremlins. Bugs is alone on a huge bomber that's about to crash. He hits the autopilot button. And out of a cabinet pops this stick figure robot with a lightbulb for a head. It surveys the situation while making beeping sounds and his head blinks. It then grabs the only parachute and bails out.
