Leave out the "cheap" and "environmentally friendly" parts and that's the design statement of NASA's '''Shuttle Transportation System.'''

And when it comes to "dangerously-designed government-sponsored technology", there's ''loads'' of evidence to file alongside it; look up the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brewster_F2A_Buffalo Brewster F2A Buffalo]], the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M16_rifle M16 rifle]], and the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradley_Fighting_Vehicle Bradley Fighting Vehicle]](see ''Film/ThePentagonWars'' for the step-by-step design process of the last of these lemons) - all so horribly defective that there was only one possible buyer, one which not only bought countless numbers but ''asked'' for them to be built in the ''first place'': '''TheGovernment.'''

** Can occasionally backfire. Some readers took exception to Omnibus scanning the private quarters of the entire ''Enterprise''-Expy in order to justify the rant about the Federation-Expy not having any popular culture after roughly 400 years ago. The author disagreed, feeling that it was perfectly appropriate in context -- checking for information that isn't on public display, so as to know what they're dealing with. Definitely a YMMV moment.



** YMMV - the Kvrk-chk are a species that regards every other carbon-based life form as food...and sapient lifeforms are just ''extra-talkative'' food. This also came after they had broadcast the consumption of the passengers ''and'' crew of that colony ship, as a "you are next" kind of message. In short, they'd made it very clear that nothing ''other'' than a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown would make them back off and leave the Racconans alone.
