And it thus: I think that the Honor Harrington series of novels are far better thought out than any Star Trek ever was.

Let me add to your problems. The Vorkosigan series is better thought out than the Harrington books. And written out of order.

Neither of these had to be written with other people and on any sort of budget, television or otherwise.

Gee, thanks. Just what I needed. :lol:

One of the tenants of Gene Roddenberry and Gene L. Coon, was too keep explanations to a minimum. This is where Star Trek falls flat on it face. By not doing so.

We know that the Multitronic M-5 impressed human engram upon computer circuits, but what was Duotronics? Human knowledge impressed upon a computer's circuits? That would have told us a great deal. It would have meant that it was hardwired for one thing.
