** Worf, Geordi, and O'Brien are all redshirts. O'Brien has held more job titles than any of them: He begins the series as a helmsman, is promoted to Transporter Chief, and leaves the series a full-fledged Chief Engineer, with no prior mention of his training in either field. (Although he mentions once fixing a Jeffries tube in TNG's "Realm of Fear".) On [=DS9=], O'Brien explains that he discovered a knack for repair work when he was gerry-rigging a transporter beacon during the war with the Cardassians.

* BioData: Klingons are NOT dumb. A Klingon scientist temporarily posted on the ''Enterprise-D'' modified a hyposyringe with an optical chip reader, and would use that to transform digital information from the ship's computers into amino acid sequences. Then he would inject someone without their knowledge, and the information would be carried in their bodies in their bloodstream as inert proteins, which could be extracted at any time by another spy. ''Damn, son!'' ** It seems that by the 24th century, the Klingons have actually learned a few things. This is slightly more plausible than the ''Enterprise'' example. ** The Ancient Humanoid {{Precursors}} in "The Chase" encoded a message to their descendants- us, as well as the Klingons, Cardassians, Romulans, Bolians, Yridians, Vulcans... you get the idea. ** In "Transfigurations," Data and Geordi examine a Zalkonian memory storage device from mysterious "John Doe's" escape pod that is stated to use a chemical matrix for data storage. It's basically the escape pod's Black Box.

Like people who were never raised in a sewer.
After struggling for a few seasons trying to establish itself apart from [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the Original Series]], it exploded into one of the most well respected television shows ever made, partially because of a change in direction (its creator had health problems starting around season two of the show's run leading to co-producer Rick Berman taking over most of the show's daily production and his promotion to executive producer during season three) and an increased willingness to experiment with the format and scope of the show, and science fiction as a whole. At 176 episodes in length, it was the longest running Star Trek series at the time, and won many awards for everything from visual effects to writing. Additionally, the series has proved wildly popular in [[ReRun Syndication]], despite having broadcast its final episode in ''1994''. To date, in the U.S. alone, it has been broadcast on no less than five different cable / satellite networks: G4, Creator/SpikeTV, Creator/SyFy, Creator/WGNAmerica and [[Creator/TheBBC BBC America]]. Three of these networks, [=SyFy=], WGN America & BBC America still regularly air episodes of the program, sometimes against each other in primetime.

Alkar replies that the Federation Council has guaranteed his safe passage back to his homeworld, and he expects Picard to follow those orders.
