The list goes on.

The only one that really breaks the mold is Qo'nos and even then they were originally going to name it Kling, but felt it sounded stupid.
hmmm

Humans - Earth = Terrans - Terra

or not?

Now my embarrassing question is:

What do they use for toilet paper in the future?

Like how the cell-phone came about via the TOS communicator, someone in our time-line could invent a better way to wipe out that old problem.

I do know Bill Gates is trying to take toilet technology which is over a few thousand years old and bring it into the 21st century. Vid here on it.
Toilet paper??

Why not? We humans drink blood here on Earth. I believe bloodwine is prepared too, not just "raw", as it were.

Absolutely. The consciousness that is "you" ceases to exist and is recreated perfectly on the other side. That's what Ben Bova's Orion series points out.

On the other hand, our consciousness also ends when we sleep, so who's to say the person we remember being is currently experiencing who we are now? That train of thought leads to madness!

My friend made a point though that if I was cut in half and perfectly put back together, would I still consider myself me? What if I was cut into quarters? Tenths? Divided to my component atoms and reconstituted? That allowed me to shrug and stop pondering consciousness.

Heres one that has bugged me for awhile. Seriously, even as a kid in the 70's it bugged me on the Original series....

I believe the episode was the "Squire of Gothos" but I could be wrong about that....but I do know that at the end Captain Kirk was talking about the pranks kids play to Spock. He mentioned things that he did as a kid and I suppose assumed SPock might have done like "Dipping little girls pigtails in inkwells".

Ummmm...ok, Kirk lives in the 23rd century right? Its 2013 right now...when was the last time you saw a freakin' inkwell? I was born in 1964 and I didn't see an inkwell ONCE in my own childhood. As a matter of fact I've only met a handful of people that know what a dip pen looks like and they (like myself) only know because we use them for pen and ink cartooning.

Even as a kid I was like "How the heck would Kirk know anything about a prank that was probably popular by children before my grandfather's time?"

When viewed from space, Qo'nos is entirely green. Green continents, green oceans, no apparent bare spots, or polar caps.

However, there is a distinct lack of foliage (green) in any of the shots of the ground of Qo'nos that I have ever seen.

My guess is that someone was playing around with the colour balance on the viewscreen that day. Damn it, Sulu! Get back to work!

I've been wondering why MACO uniforms look like they've been worn while painting bulkheads. Do the fashion police not exist in the 22nd century? Or are the MACOs just trying to beat out the Romulans in the "Ugliest Uniform of the Year" awards?

When viewed up close you can't see it, but all the HONOR and GLORY of Qo'noS emits a green aura. ;)

Not so much an embarrassing question for me - but maybe for the continuity person who worked on Voyager:

What the eff ever became of the borg baby? Its a season 6 or 7 episode where they discover the borg kids - 7 beams a baby borg from the cube to the Doctor - Doctor does his thing, saves baby borg - baby borg never ever mentioned again, even thou the other borg kids get to move into 7's cargo hold.

I don't mind an occasional plot hole or an unresolved story element but when you forget entirely about the wee baby borg, that's a little much.
