I wince every time at this one, from TOS: Errand of Mercy (overall, a pretty good episode):

SPOCK: Inhabited by humanoids. A very peaceful, friendly people living on a primitive level. Little of intrinsic value. Approximately Class D minus on Richter's scale of cultures.
Richter's scale?!? D minus!?!
The notion of evaluating cultures in such a manner didn't seem that inappropriate when the episode first aired. What struck me was the name Richter. I thought his scale was used to measure earthquakes!
