Later, I thought photon torpedoes were some kind of projected blobs of exploding energy with no material "body." When I saw TWOK I didn't realize the things they were loading onto that track were supposed to be the photon torpedoes.
If referring to the time before TWOK, you were probably weren't incorrect on that one.


Like GreenShirt, when I was a kid, I also thought the bridge was at the bottom of the saucer. Not sure if I figured it out on my own, or it took getting the blueprints in 1975.

I used to think the delta emblem on Kirk's wraparound fell down and stuck on his gut, not realizing it was supposed to be that way.

I was nine when The Best of Both Worlds, Part 2 came out. I remember when the Borg cube exploded, I ran to the window to see if I could see it.

Was it the original showing, or a rerun?

Re: Things you got "wrong"

In Deja Q, where Geordi tells Q to "get to the controls or get the hell out of here", Q asks Data who does he (Geordi) think he is.

Data replies, "he thinks he is in command here, and he is". From that, I thought Geordi outranked Data.

I also used to think a Lt Commander was just a lower grade of commander but basically the same rank.

This was when I first started watching the show. It was fun re-watching to figure everything out afterwards.

Before Enterprise, I was under the impression that Scott Bacula was a good actor.

Rather old to not be able to distinguish fiction from reality.

^My old dog used to do that. If he saw a horse run across the TV screen, he'd chase it, then run to the window to see if it was still out there.

I heard Picard call someone "Ensign" when I first saw TNG and thought he was addressing that individual by their first name.

^In "The Arsenal of Freedom", I thought there was a guy on the battle bridge named "Khan" (Geordi was just calling him "Conn" as in "Flight Controller")

Around the time I was in kindergarten, I thought that Mister Spock was a civilian scientist aboard the Enterprise, because the show was the adventures of Captain Kirk and Mister Spock.

I thought that Enterprise-D's deflector dish was a "super phaser" even before TBOBW.

When the deflector is used in "The Best of Both Worlds" it does remind you of the wave motion gun from Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato).
