But Star Trek has always explained how its technology works and I think that is what gives it somewhat more credibility then other Sci-Fi genres.
Some of us enjoy technobabble and complication because thats how Star Trek has always been... well to me at least. Details are important.
they explained it until voyager, then everything went from exaggerations to pure histerics & rubbish writing.
sure in the start gr wanted what was shown on screen to be extrapalatory on then current science to the best of the staffs abilities, but that idea was trashed hard probably before ds9 was half way done.
unfortunatly people flying around like this guy ->
only want to think about buzzing around in their roach boat shouting ''wheeee'' every-time they turn, not making sure their ship is optimised for the situation.
-star trek online minimum DPS requirement
vortex probe hp = 62365 x3 = 187095. speed = 0.8 km/s(about) giving about 25 seconds to kill them while in range, this means you need an effective DPS output of 7484, or your build is a failure.
Star Trek canon depictions of battle:
1000km in dialogue = 1km on screen.
