Even though the design of the technology from TOS should seem outdated when compared to DS9, it never seemed anachronistic in the DS9 episode Trials and Tribble-ations. And I don’t know if it was the intention of the writers but I saw Dax’s lines above as helping as they imply the look of TOS era tech as a design choice rather than an outdated 1960s view of the future.
Wow, someone bought me all of these books off my Amazon list. I’m speechless, no one’s just got stuff for me before… It’s been a long time since I could buy stuff just for fun, it usually goes to bills and meds. I’m eternally thankful to whoever did this!!
