Dear EEMIV: Somehow mention needs to be made of the episode in "The Voyage Home" in which Scotty tries to interface with an ancient non-voice computer. This really represents the change in technology over time, although in a humorous way. —Anne Delong (talk) 16:40, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Great point -- thanks! --EEMIV (talk) 16:56, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Note to self/-ves re. computers/depiction[edit]

This iteration has a bunch more information about the depiction of computers in Trek. Culled from here, but might be appropriate/useful for integration elsewhere. --EEMIV (talk) 15:57, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
