    Of course not, it's just banter for us Trek geeks.

    I do think, however, that this discussion shows the uneasy instability of inserting a walking spoiler alert into the past. As I've noted in another thread, Spock has the EZ-Button answer to every major challenge the Federation will be seeing for the forseeable future. The Doomsday Machine? Doomed. The Horta? Vindicated. The Salt Monster? Desalinized! Etc., etc., etc.

    But if you can easily rationalize ALL plot holes without ANY resistance then the game is too easy. Our game should have successes and failures or there are no stakes.

    You know, if it would significantly reduce the sort of smug, condescending and pointedly uncooperative which currently permeates this thread, I think I'd probably be able to live with that. Yes, I think I could.

    Well, I'm happy someone's been having fun, but I think we're done here.
