    As I recall, most of the times the writers never understood the technobabble they were writing. I believe Braga admits as much on the audio commentary for the TNG episode Parallells available on the Alternate Realities DVD set.

    I'm sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but I simply could not resist sharing this one (re-watching Voyager ATM):

    Arturis: Ah - here it is. It's a simple matter of extracting the iconometric elements, and triaxilating a recursion matrix.
    Capt. Kathryn Janeway: Now, why didn't I think of that?

    I said out, dammit!
    I wrote a fanfic where the engineer said something like that to the captain, and she just stared angrily at him until he explained in English.
