  • Despite not watching Enterprise, I did watch Star Trek. A left-behind communicator gave rise to a
    criminal society in some episode. As for their dunderheaded black ops, it's like anything else. People do things in the most complicated way. Want to know how the US military wanted to smuggle technology into the middle east in the 1980s? There were lots of parachutes and SCUBA tanks involved. How did the operators actually do it? Commercial flight, diplomatic pouch, and rental car. Just let the Enterprise zap the gizmo from orbit, then jet off to the next liberty port. duh!

    As for extended sea tours---I know a few people who were on aircraft carriers for two tours (six months) back to back, but the US was in the middle of Desert Shield. It does happen. Sure glad I'm not a sailor. :)
