'''Picard''': Targeting wings? It needs fancy targeting wings to hit something bigger than an aircraft carrier from only 1 km away, dead ahead?\\
'''Crewman:''' Yup. And it needs to charge up for [[TickingClock 7 minutes]] too.\\
'''Picard''': Excellent. Just enough time for another contrived action scene. Hey, if it takes 7 minutes to charge up to kill 1000 people, how long would it take to kill 6 billion?\\
'''Crewman:''' I'd calculate about 80 years. Who the hell wrote this?\\

Forget the fact that no one can calculate how a swordfight to the death is going to turn out due to all the variables involved.
