    You see your coworker with her hair down and you think, "Kevin Riley was right!"

    If you loved the Motorola logo as a kid because it looked like two Starfleet insignias.

    If you ever got your friends to "play Star Trek" in the yard, and your tricorder was a binoculars case or a cassette tape recorder.

    Your wife looks over your shoulder while you are posting on BBS and comments that she has nothing to worry about when I am on the computer.

    I'll be darned. It does! I never noticed that before. I won't be able to unsee it now!

    Yup, I did that with a binoculars case. I think we had phasers and communicators from some toy manufacturers but the tricorder was elusive, as I recall. I think someone made one, which was pretty cool with lights and sounds and such, but for some reason it wasn't black (I think it was a grayish blue) and looked nothing like the on-screen prop.

    If you think:

    "It's called Star Trek, d*mnit! No bloody later-day "the original series" or "TOS" addition needed, because people might get it confused with the general Star Trek Franchise otherwise!

    That’s okay. The crew of the Enterprise didn’t figure out the 2 different coordinates until the end of the episode. :crazy:

    This does give credence to
    Spock's dyslexia, however.

    ...Is this a legit fan theory? Because I want to hear more.

    This would totally explain
    his faulty numbers for the casualties in WWI and II,
    for instance. ;)

    It's established in Discovery that Spock suffers from L'tak Terai, something very similar to dyslexia
