One mention of the word technobabble in the Star Trek universe doesn't mean we need a special article for that; rather, this article should be a look at the use of technobabble by the writers/producers within the franchise. --126.96.36.199
- When a starship is shown once, it gets an article. When a new flavor of drink is shown once, it gets an article. I am reverting your edits. This article was meant to be, and should be, IN UNIVERSE. --OuroborosCobra talk 00:19, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Is there anything to back up the statement "Voyager is the series most often criticized for use of technobabble"? This seems like an opinion to me unless someone who worked on the show has stated they felt that way.--31dot 03:35, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
- I seem to remember that being in some recent William Shatner thing, like "How Star Trek changed the world", or that program about Christie's Auctions, or some such and what not and things. --OuroborosCobra talk 03:42, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Deep Space Nine Edit
After watching more DS9 episodes in less time than is recommended by the psychiatric section of Starfleet Medical, it seems to me that in this series, anyway, aside from the ubiquitous "plasma conduits" that always rupture at the first sign of enemy action, the writers have an addiction to "flux capacitors" and "self-sealing stembolts", which seem to come up repeatedly whenever starship parts are being discussed.
By the way, on a related subject, at one point (I think in "Tears of the Prophets"), Quark fixes Julian a drink he calls a "Warp Core Breach", which appears to be a shot of liquid nitrogen (for the fog) and a quarter-cup of diluted grenadine served in a small goldfish bowl. Perhaps MA should have a contest for the most interesting alternative recipe, with or without fog. – CraigG 04:19, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
The Next Generation Edit
Do Kosinski's "nonsense" theories from "Where No One Has Gone Before" and Riker's deliberate technobabble in "Rascals" qualify as instances that should be mentioned? At least in Riker's case, the technobabble was a deliberate attempt to confuse an adversary and was made part of the plot. Starfleetjedi 08:30, July 18, 2011 (UTC)
