Well, to me they did. And you can't compare those to a bridge monitor. Bridge monitors weren't in your face all the time like the characters are. Oh well...let's agree to disagree. I just think if it's on the screen...or rather an actor...it should have a purpose that serves the script. But, I'm crazy that way. I'm crazy in a lot of other ways too...but I am crazy like that about pointless and unused technology attached to characters. Just looking "kewl" isn't enough for me.
