Re: Are communicators and tricorders anachronistic now?
Sure there is something to be said for devices capable of multi-functions, but then again there is something to be said about devices build to do one thing.
A device capable of doing many functions has in theory more that can go wrong with it. So it makes sense to have more specialised devices that do one task very well, rather than several tasks ok.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
