I figured a thread like this would be useful for questions that might not need a whole thread to their own. And other such questions can be posted here. Here's a couple to start. Maybe we can answer some niggling questions we all have: 1.) Star Trek has always been pretty cavalier and quick when it comes to getting around on Earth. Characters go where they need to fairly quickly. The use of the transporter is always implied. But don't you find it odd that, in the pilot Broken Bow, Archer got from Orbital Six to Starfleet Medical super fast without a transporter (he hadn't used it yet) or is it just me? 2: In Fight or Flight, what was it that Archer shot with his hand phaser before leaving the derelict for the second time?
