    Before Enterprise, I was under the impression that Scott Bacula was a good actor.

    Rather old to not be able to distinguish fiction from reality.

    ^My old dog used to do that. If he saw a horse run across the TV screen, he'd chase it, then run to the window to see if it was still out there.

    I heard Picard call someone "Ensign" when I first saw TNG and thought he was addressing that individual by their first name.

    ^In "The Arsenal of Freedom", I thought there was a guy on the battle bridge named "Khan" (Geordi was just calling him "Conn" as in "Flight Controller")

    Around the time I was in kindergarten, I thought that Mister Spock was a civilian scientist aboard the Enterprise, because the show was the adventures of Captain Kirk and Mister Spock. :)

    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).

    When TNG appeared i thought the D's saucer was round - like the original TOS Enterprise. Took me a LONG time to figure out the correct shape.

    Until I saw the set plans, I thought the shiny bridge in Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness was circular when in fact it's an oval.

    Search4 obviously means circular.

    Picard: "Set course Ensign Khhaaaaaaan !!"

    Khan: "Course set Captain."

    Picard: "Thank you Ensign Khhaaaaaaan, engage."

    For me, two things...

    1. I'm probably the only one here, but I used to think Spock didn't speak when I was quite young.

    2. Before I started watched TNG regularly, I thought the D got a new first officer after the first season

    sau·cer (sô[​IMG]s[​IMG]r)n.1. A small shallow dish having a slight circular depression in the center for holding a cup.
    2. An object similar in shape to a saucer.

    Saucers do not have to be round or circular to fit this definition. Well, it has a slight circular depression for holding a cup, but I've seen some saucers and cups that are not round or circular.

    Yes, it should be clear what Search4 means.

    It was not actually designed as a super phaser, just rerigged for that ep.

    When I was young I thought O'Brien was 8th in command.
