Great link! If you want to know how the sausage is made on Star Trek or, honestly, any scripted TV series, I highly recommend David Gerrold’s book about the making of the famous episode he wrote, The Trouble With Tribbles. Along with an annotated script, he goes into great detail about how TV production works and how lines of his were cut or new lines were added by Gene and others (the “no tribble at all” line that Scotty ends the episode with was not his and he hated it). It’s really worth a read. I have the original paperback, but it looks like he has a new edition, both print and ebook, out.

Lemjukes,

More good link!

I’ll be honest I was more interested in the story reasoning from Moore than anything else. And while I make sausage for a living, I love production-inside baseball talk. Especially trek-production-inside baseball talk/stories.

I just watched that ep and wondered the same thing, especially when that Romulian flew through the wall!

Lexam,

If you think about it. Once phase shifted they would basically be gone. Due to the speed of the ship, they would just be left in space millions of miles behind before anyone realizes what just happened.

Same issue with a time machine. The Earth moves. Fast. You go back in time a day and you’ll be floating in a void.

that's why your time machine has to be a vehicle, like a delorean. you just drive to where the earth was, problem solved!

Or a flying police box.

Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut is about this. It’s the only book of his I really enjoyed.

I read that when I was a teenager in the early 90s and remember absolutely nothing about it.

The Earth moves

Compared to what? Velocity is relative. From the perspective of Earth the universe is moving.

Love it when chevron7 leaks here.

ashok36,

It’s OK. We’ll just hang a lampshade on it.

slazer2au,

Because phase shifting happens on the horizontal phase not the vertical.

At least that is my head cannon.

DmMacniel,

Horizontal/Vertical to what?

That would imply stepping through a wall would immediately block all blood traveling anything but horizontal. You’d die before your head is halfway through…

zero_spelled_with_an_ecks,

They were already dead. Got a funeral and everything.
