@fillertrack @chr I always wondered why he always had to say that. You'd think there'd be a PREFERENCES tab in the Enterprise computer, we he could select Earl Grey, and Hot, so that all he would have to say is TEA.

@Ricardus @fillertrack my favorite theory about that is that everyone at starfleet except the engineering staff is pretty much 24th-century-computer illiterate and don't know how to program things like replicator presets or know how but think its a hassle and dont want to bother

@Ricardus @fillertrack @chr every single time he orders it: "Would you like me to set Earl Grey as your default?" Picard, annoyed: "No! I mean fine. I don't know. I'm trying to run a ship here."

@kai @fillertrack @chr @Ricardus The Enterprise D is the 24th century equivalent of the 1980s VCR that blinks 12:00 for 10 years because no one wants to learn how to program it.
