Does anyone laugh when...

So "Before and After" is one of my favorite trek episodes but I never fail to laugh at what has to be one of the laziest, most convenient technobabble lines ever.
So Kes is infected with chroniton particles, so what does B'Ellana suggest?
Well lets beam her with anti-chroniton particles! Of course! How could we have missed it!??

The way its enunciated makes it even funnier

Maybe its just me though...

Yeah, thems funny words! I'll bet it was really hard saying technobabble words sometimes on set! Bet they got their tongues tied quite often! I know I would be!

I still remember watching about the making of Enterprise and all the problems they had with their technobabble and it wasn't as bad as Voyager!

I laughed so hard in the bloopers where the cast "try" to improvise the technobabble when they forgot their lines!

B'Elanna looks like if she's making some political speech when she comes up with that line.

Anyway, sometimes the techobabble just gets too over-done. But it wasn't specific for Voyager. It's a lot of it in the other series too.

For me, it's a problem when I try to write stories. I've tried but I simply can't come up with advanced technobabble.

That wasn't a problem for this writer clearly.
Bad = word
good = anti + word
