Fine. So if you want to interact with a space object you have to be right on top of it. Who's to say Geordi or data was doing an "interact with object" and not offering a "popup dialog" on a "reach marker"?

Look, I love the idea of two ships blasting away at each other from so far away they barely see one another as anything more than pinpoints of light. I'm a huge classic Traveller fan. But compare the distances above to the shots in Wrath of Khan where the two ships were practically smashing into each other. The devs had to make some choices and they chose, not surprisingly, to go with the more graphically exciting approach of having the ships at relatively close quarters. I don't see how that makes it somehow a betrayal to the spirit of the franchise.
This was your response when I posted several scripts from movies and shows.

Here you even capitalized the entire sentence. You challenged me to find it when I have consistently said there is canon that shows ranges GREATER than 6km for scans and 10km for weapons.

cont'd from last post to do challenge.

Challenge given -- challenge accepted and shown.

Or does your lack of English not understand what greater than means again?

Again, canon shows the ranges are GREATER THAN 6km for scans and 10km for weapons. The devs did grossly small numbers according to canon.
