Random thought: With all these technological advancements we are experiencing, I wonder why the tricorder hasn’t been invented yet. You know what I’m talking about, those hand-held scanners that the away teams always brought with them. It’s funny watching Star Trek (Original and Next Gen) because we are barely in the 21st Century and we have passed them technologically in several areas. Yet, we don’t have any hand held devices that we can wave in front of something or turn on a scanner of some sort and record data. If there was one device from a fictional show I would like to have, it would be that.
