Via Rev. Paul, quoting from a Facebook post discussing Federation starships in the 'Star Trek' movies and TV series:
They can pull an effectively unlimited number of bull**** space-magic countermeasures out of their arses - but they're as likely as not to give themselves a lethal five-dimensional wedgie in the process.
Uh . . . OK . . . if you say so!
I really must try to figure out how to incorporate 'a lethal five-dimensional wedgie' in my next SF novel . . .
