Touchscreen Blasphemy!

As another buggering from the new team, we see the bridge of the new Enterprise has touch-screen controls and not jellybean buttons!

Heresy! Prepare the torches and pitchforks!

How dare they!

Everyone knows that touchscreen technology wasn't invented until AFTER 2267.

Touch screens? They raped my childhood! There had better be jellybean buttons... or else...

Yeah, who likes touchy screens? They're alway so ... touchy.

Anyone for "angery and magnesium"?
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
