We all know that Star Trek economics are laughable, but the episode mrissa and I watched tonight was just awful. ("Progress", ep 1x15.) "Let's ruin the atmosphere of a perfectly habitable moon in order to tap geothermal power from its core! After all, it would take a whole year to tap the power in a cleaner way." (And the number of homes mentioned as the recipients of the power was something ridiculously small, too.)
