I know, right?


As I've often mentioned, part of the genius of TOS was that the technology and the terminology so often came across as believable, even if it didn't hold up to close scrutiny.


Heck, Shatner convincingly sold that line about the ship's audio booster amplifying Finney's heartbeat by "one to the fourth power" in "Court Martial"!

Heh.  One to the fourth power. I never noticed that before.
