    Could be simple irritation, I have friends who wear contacts and they will occasionally show up wearing glasses.
    Spices are funny things.

    Something they could correct when the episode is remastered...

    In case you're still interested, I did stumble across somewhere selling the Admiral's braid, http://www.xscapesprops.com/star trek props/Star_Trek_movie_era_uniforms.htm

    How do they clean the fish tank in Captain Picards office on the Enterprise?

    Maybe it's done sonically, but I don't know how they'd get the dirt out once the sonic cleaning had collected it.

    My dad had a tank like that, you clean it the same way you would any tank. Part of the "wall" that surrounds it opens up and gives you access to the tank..

    I've oft wondered if the Federation's not using money contributed to Miles & Keiko having marital issues. Had it employed a fiscal economy, O'Brien could've just thrown money at his discontented wife to keep her quiet and happy on TNG & DS9 -- DS9, especially ...

    "Money" problems didn't seem to be their issue. And I feel they do use "money" or credits - just not physical money like coins or cash, which is all they meant when they said they don't use "money" anymore. There are still some valuable and rare materials some use to transfer wealth, like gold pressed latinum, and while it can't be replicated, I wonder it that means it can't be transported, too.

    Maybe someone can given an example of using transporters to move gold pressed latinum?

    Obviously, no matter how the economy of the 24th century may work exactly, humans can obtain any material goods they want.

    And this supports my hypothesis that, sooner or later, every TrekBBS thread turns into a "do they have money in the future" or "is Starfleet the military" discussion.

    I never cared for her, but I don't like the post that solving their issues could have been achieved by throwing money at her. Her issues had to do more with feeling useless professionally on the station. Money and gifts would not have helped that.

    I decided not to bother making that explanation, since it really ought to be a given amongst us that wives generally aren't in it just for the money, right? Especially Trek protagonists.

    I guess Ferengi wives would be in it for the money
