I seem to have unleashed a beast

1) Post about Treknobabble
2) Charlie Stross is triggered by it
3) And writes a fantastic screed on the failings of Star Trek
4) ???
5) Profit!

Personally I'm quite happy to watch Star Trek as morality tale/fantasy stories - it's _not_ the same as the written SF I like, (which tends to have actual science in it and doesn't pander to the audience so much), but I can still enjoy it in its own right.  But I can understand why some people are downright enraged by it.  Let's face it, I wouldn't want to _read_ Independence Day or Star Wars (not since I was a kid), but I'll happily enjoy the eye candy.
