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.Mostly.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.
