I’ve been watching Enterprise for the last few months, as well as a few Voyager reruns…also STII, IV, and V. So I’m not nearly as familiar with most things about the ST universe. Please don’t hurt me:)
-Why is the original Enterprise (1701) of that design? It takes a long walk to get to the warp nacelles, and the semi-cylinder-like part seems to just present a larger target.
-Why, in all ships, are the warp nacelles not directly behind the ship’s center of gravity?
-Where are the emissions from the impulse reactors? (propellants have to go somewhere…)
-When two ships meet, why are they always facing the same direction? (i.e. both ships’ “up” is the same direction)
-Why is the bridge in such a vulnerable spot?
-When ship A fights ship B, why doesn’t ship A just calculate ship B’s shield frequency so that it can penetrate it?
-Why are all aliens humanoids with forehead ridges?
-When an alien is being translated with the UT, why does its face still look like it’s speaking English?
-Why is there no television?
-Why can communicatons travel instantaneously? I’m always trying to see if there’s a lag time, but at distances like ST, there should be years before they arrive.
-Why do all ships have streamlined parts, but the positioning of the nacelles and sometimes other parts make the ship 1) not streamlined as a whole and 2) a bigger target?
There are more, but I can’t think of them now
