Re: ST:TMP Technical Details

I'm of two minds (no, not schizophrenic) (well, not much). On the one had, I LOVE techie stuff, and TMP-era tech is my favorite. On the gripping hand, I've always been a little disappointed that the TMP era's extremely detailed tech took away a lot of the mystique of TOS. The TOS E didn't have obvious hatches, docking ports, RCS emplacements, skin plates, and so forth. It made me think there was some wonderous tech under that seamless (grown?) skin. TMP took all that away and showed us what was under the hood, for good or bad.
