God, I love Trek. This only makes me love it MORE. Geordi!!! <3

And once you've got the lingo down, move on to some important instruction manuals from Cracked.com.

Heh. This reviewer isn't even trying to visualize what the crew is saying.

"Matter/Anti-Matter? What's that?"

Uh, dude, everyone knows that warp drive uses antimatter interacting with matter to function. The energy released during a matter/antimatter collision is not unlike what happens inside a nuclear reactor. The fusion of atoms creates energy which can be channeled and used by humans. Same goes with Star Trek matter/antimatter collisions.

Once you accept some of the basic ideas in Trek, the psychobabble actually makes sense.


Some of it is just horseshit, but I wouldn't call this reviewer any kind of expert, since he picked on some cases that make absolute sense in the context of the Trek universe.

I hear ya, I applaud Trek for working so hard to MAKE science fiction feel like science fact, and the multiple shows and specials about real-life star trek tech being realized prove that they do a good job.

But I still found the commentary quite funny. :)

One of my favorite Next Gen episodes was Samaritan Snare, when Geordi invents his own tech, the "crimson forcefield."

Okay, one of those was just a really long password, and one was intentionally confusing and meaningless to throw off a hijacker.
