I just made a document of complete and utter science bullshit to try and explain to myself how certain things in the “Star Universe” work.
Ah, I love science fiction.
Waxing poetic about things under the cut
It never bothers me if sci-fi isn’t scientifically accurate. I only care about a story being internally consistent – not establishing then breaking it’s own rules. For example, in Star Trek V it seems as though the Enterprise travels to the center of the galaxy in maybe a day or two, yet in Voyager the whole premise is that it will take them 80 years to cross the galaxy and get home – that kind of inconsistency bugs me. Warp drive, transporters, omnipotent aliens – all of that I’m fine with.
