...or, "Your ship flares up like an exploding sun within minutes!" I always felt a bit let down by not getting to see what that really meant (as implied more than once). As a kid watching Star Trek, those kind of lines implied such awesome spectacle in their simplicity! I find looking back that I think maybe we got cheated a little. It sounded for all the world to me like one of those Sarpeidon supernova or Nomad energy burst-type events. It seemed to really sell to kid me the awesome power of the Enterprise. Or was I reading too much into it, with the matter/antimatter-fueled imagination of youth? Any thoughts?
