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).

~snip~
Well, if you discount that the deflector dish effect was LAME. It looked like a tinkerbell magic sparkly ray compared to the Wave Motion weapon in that clip.
And I wish the Enterprise had used the klaxon from that clip's first 15 seconds before firing the deflector dish

Maybe, but I think it was assassinated in 2009.

Re: Things you got "wrong"

Before I had watched much of DS9 or TNG, I thought the Maquis and the Resistance were kind of the same thing, and that Major Kira had fought the Federation at some point for some reason.

Re: Things you got "wrong"

I was briefly under the impression once that there were more than three Star Wars movies.

When I was younger I was sure that continuity glitches could be explained away somehow because, of course, the writing room was a tightly run ship all fully cognizant of every technical detail ever established in the series.

Re: Things you got "wrong"

I was nine or ten when I first saw Wrath Of Khan. I didn't see it again for many years and during that time I was absolutely sure that I remembered Khan getting his hand blown off during the final battle.

The first Star Trek sequence I ever saw had Kirk pulling that phallic stalactite from the ceiling and holding it at waist level. When you're 15 at the time, it's something you never forget.
I first watched the show as a very young person in the 70s. I was about 12 years old. I never caught that! I discovered that here on this forum!

I'm right there with you. Star Trek fan for nearly 40 years now and I'm still learning new things about TOS (and the entire franchise) all the time from this site.

Re: Things you got "wrong"

on TOS: I also thought it was "Star Track" for awhile (never having seen the opening credits)

on TNG: I was old enough to know better, but was in COMPLETE denial about a "bald, old man" being the Captain. Riker was the Captain....he just needed to be picked up at farpoint.
