ALL I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW

Dave--very interesting.   Star Trek was "THE" program for future engineers when I was growing up and going through school.  We knew that with the proper educational background, work ethic and resourcefulness, any problem could be solved.   As you mentioned, all of this was created with individuals of varying ethnic backgrounds.  This is one thing Gene Roddenberry demanded from the scripts--diversity.  I also enjoyed the fact that he used individuals with differing skill sets in contributing to solutions. They all worked together.  (Wonder if any members of Congress ever watched the program.)

Thank you.  There is a whole saga to go with the creation of it, but not for public consumption. You can reach me through the root page if you are curious.

That was great!  Superlative, even, considering it was made 20 years ago.  Excellent work!

Trouble with Tribbles, is they Taste of Armageddon

Of course; now I really want to watch your video!  And while the link successfully loaded a BIS page, the video stated, "Invalid Source" and does not execute.  Maybe we're on opposite sides of a firewall.

I was asked to do a department video by a former employer. They had asked for it to be based on "The Trouble With Tribbles" (obviously unaware of the derogatory adapted quotes that leapt to everyone mind who had actually seen the episode) so we talked them into "A Taste of Armeggedon" with a splash of "The Voyage Home" (aka "Star Trek: Save the Whales"), we had an old DPS-7 that had to be replaced. They also wanted us to show everyone in the department and keep the video under 5 minutes. Other departments made videos, but ours was the only one to come in under 5 minutes.  The next year they asked me to edit all the department videos.  This had been my first one, the link is to my 12th anniversary version I recut on my home computer instead of the tape to tape version of the original, which allowed me to add overlays.

That is right. Forgot about that. Guess I need to watch these again. It has been a while and this article has me thinking it is time for a Star Trek marathon! Get up Saturday morning and watch all the Star Trek movies. The first one is horrible, but it just wouldn't seem fair to skip this one.

Scotty also advised that you be conservative when you write specifications.

Actually Scotty traded the formula for transparent aluminum for the plexiglas they had in stock to use in the whale tank.

We shared our list, now Design News readers tell us which artificial intelligence movies they watch again and again.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
Researchers have simplified the fabrication of the geometric requirements for fluid motion in microrobots for in vivo medical applications.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s recently announced plan to put an electric airplane in the air by 2018 is forward-looking, but hardly unique.
