Not at all, Kirk was famous for his ability to destroy robots/AI's with simple word games.
That only shows our ignorance back then, thinking that something like that was even possible. Now we know better. You have about as much chance to destroy an AI with a word game as you have to stop a charging elephant with your breath.
Since we've never produced a actual AI, your statement would be hard to support.
Nemesis: At least they didn't show Worf naked...
The AIs we have now, can't be defeated with word games, why would AIs in the future be so ill-conceived that they would?
The idea of an AI that could be defeated by words makes no more sense than that of a person that could be defeated by words. It's childishly simplistic. Their only excuse back then if that a computer was something mysterious that most people had never used or seen used. It's was the stuff of legend.
"They really put a lot of work into those lens flare effects."
We had one 18 years ago.
I think there are quite a few movies that were inspired by this one.
The computers Kirk talked to death were not true AI. They were just programmed with specific directives, and not designed to really reason, develop further intelligence, etc.
Plus they all included a serious design flaw, the inaptitude to reject a question that they couldn't solve.
But TOS wasn't unique in that respect. In "The Prisoner" the hero destroys a computer by asking "What?"
In "The Avengers" a series from the 1960s, John Steed, just tells the computer to self-destruct (it was worth a try I guess).
Yeah, It wasn't "what?" it was "why?".
After watching the 2009 movie, I learned more about movie mistakes related to the franchise.
How so? Can you expand on this thought a bit?
"Nemesis" happens to be the nemesis of the franchise, which is a funny coincidence!
Star Trek Nemesis
The end credits.
I never watched it in a movie theater (and therefore saved the money.)
Star Trek: Insurrection.
It's the shortest of the films, according to bingeclock.com (https://www.bingeclock.com/film/marathon/star-trek-movies-1/).
I'm positive I will never see it again?
or, I walked out in time to actually get a refund on my ticket, pick up my ladyfriend, and drive across town to an art theatre showing of "You Only Live Twice"?
