Not so modern after all. I remember seeing the "digital" clocks that had the black numbers flip down.

And that episode was the one in which the Enterprise went back in time. LOL

And a crewmember didn't know how to operate the clipboard, resulting in a severed finger. Bones was able to reattach the finger.

And that was difficult for him to diagnose since the remote probe on his Tricorder was (actually) a salt-shaker.

If you want to see run-on sentences, check out the book Paul Clifford by Edward Bulwer-Litton, written in 1830. It starts with the infamous sentence "It was a dark and stormy night," but goes on and on and on from there. It's impossible to read the book. I checked it out once just to, well, check it out. Talk about rambling sentences. Commas galore!!

Ummm... Ever try hacking a clipboard? (Maybe they learned something? ๐Ÿ˜)
Or, who of us in the mid-60s would have known what an IPad was? ๐Ÿค”

Too funny. Iโ€™m often guilty of too many commas.

Funny...and actually insightful. Captain Kirk's bridge in the first Star Trek had analog switches which was the technology of the time. Jon Luc Picard's bridge sported fixed, touch switches; an improvement.

Today, several hundred years earlier, Elon Musk's Dragon spacecraft is almost exclusively outfitted with touch screens that can be changed to any number of configurations with the swipe of a finger. I guess no one in the entertainment world saw that one coming.

Some sci fi space shows depict spacecraft being controlled by a holographic projection hovering in mid-air. I wouldn't be surprised if we see that technology come to fruition in the near future but what comes after that? Probably some form of telepathic connection from the pilot's brain, directly to the craft which is what the military's working on, right now.

In order to graduate from the university I attended, one had to pass an โ€œEnglish Qualifying Examโ€ which included an essay. Took me three tries to pass that thing - my use of commas was the bugaboo in the essay portion.

Nope--There was an episode where the Enterprise went back in time and captured an Air Force pilot. He had seen them flying above his plane. He couldn't be returned to Earth because to do so would have changed the future. They went down to his airbase to get back the films his plane's cameras had taken and were captured themselves by the M.P.'s. Eventually, they determined that he had to be returned to Earth because his son...who hadn't yet been born...would eventually lead and expedition to Saturn. So they flew towards the sun and flew a bi further back in time, used the slingshot effect to head back towards their time. Along the way, they returned him to his jet, in flight, just before he had seen them. All through that last sequence, the digital clock ran first backwards and then forwards. It was season 1, episode 19. "Tomorrow is Yesterday."

"Tomorrow is Yesterday" had William Shatner as the captain of the Enterprise, not Jeffrey Hunter.

I found all 79(?) episodes of Star Trek just fascinating! Was disappointed with the Star Wars movies. Yes, the special effects were better, but just found them a little too goofy for me.

Guess itโ€™s just my age showing.
