Scay's logic seems to work something like this: STO is made to run on the PC platform, and grandma's Celeron-based Emachines PC with a Geforce 6150 is PC, therefore STO must be made to run on grandma's computer. It's a classic undistributed middle fallacy.

Of course, that's hardly the only fault in the logic he's displayed, but sufficing to say that Cryptic does not and is not required to write STO to work on any and all computers. STO is likely more demanding then it should be under cetain circumstances, and Cryptic should and probably will improve that in order to expand the array of hardware that the game can be run on, but as STO does nothing but execute logical instructions that do not directly modify hardware, it is still doing nothing outside the boundaries of what a proper computer should be able to handle. With this in mind, if STO damages your hardware, or run it outside of safe tolerances, Cryptic is not responsible.
