Reverse Engineering the Future — 5 Comments

  1. Oh, that sort of thing goes back to ST:TOS, what with GangsterWorld (or was it NaziWorld?) figuring out how to amazingly duplicate some aspect of Earths past completely just by taking apart a phaser.

    I still think Back To The Future did an awesome job with how much technology changed over the course of Doc Brown’s lifetime…a suitcase sized collection of tubes and wires replacing a single IC and, of course, we can’t forget Mr. Fusion…

  2. Hmmm, I get the impression that the communicator is intended to be opened up in emergency situations. My copy of the TNG Tech Manual shows enough discrete internal components that I think you could probably, if you’re familiar enough with ST Engineering, tweak it to do some interesting things. I’m not recalling anything specific they ever did with ’em in disassembled states, but I do recall they disassembled them on multiple ocassions.
