I have the same complaint about every friggin foundry author making my toon say "make it so" at some point in their mission. One guy said that in the 27 seasons of television shows. One guy. Quit making my toons say it already.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/47_%28number%29


Quote:
Joe Menosky graduated from Pomona College in 1979 and went on to become one of the story writers of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Menosky "infected" other Star Trek writers with an enthusiasm for the number 47.[6] As a result, 47, its reverse 74, its multiples, or combinations of 47 occur surreptitiously in almost every episode of the program and its spin-offs Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise.[4][7] Forty-seven might be mentioned in dialogue or appear on a computer screen, for example:

* In Star Trek: Generations, Scotty manages to beam up only 47 El-Aurians before their ship is destroyed by the energy ribbon.
* In the TNG episode "Darmok", the computer of the Enterprise reports to have found 47 occurrences of the word "Darmok" in its database.
* In the DS9 episode "Whispers", the planet Parada 4 has seven moons.
* In the Voyager episode "Parallax", we learn that the Emergency Medical Holographic Channel is 47 and that the EMH has the experience of 47 individual medical officers.
* In the Voyager episode "Non Sequitur", Harry Kim lives in apartment 4-G, G being the seventh letter of the alphabet. The intentionality of this reference to 47 was confirmed by Brannon Braga, the writer of that episode.
* In the Voyager episode "Before And After", the phase shift is 1.47
* In the 2009 film Star Trek, the Enterprise was built in Sector 47 of the Riverside Shipyards, and 47 Klingon ships are said to have been destroyed by Nero's ship, the Narada.
I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

The irony is strong with this one.
As well he should. The OP has got to loosen up and relax.

Yeah, but there are a ton of 47 mentions in the NPC text on a lot of the PvE missions. Especially the lower tier ones if I remember correctly. Specific examples may have to wait until the server returns to something more approaching "normal" and/or "working".

i never really noticed it till i read this thread and really i dont see why it should bother anyone unless you spend your time looking for the minor details in the game

47 shows up in startrek tng and into DS9 and even the JJ alternate universe version of star trek movie he did

its part of star trek and if the devs want to keep it then i dont see why not

I should make a Borg character named 47 of 47 and bring my 74 of 74 bridge officer with me onto New Romulus.
