Any suggestions of headings we can use to break up the "Technologies and procedures for the brain" section? It's getting a bit long. Jaf 12:33, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)Jaf
technologies of repair vs mind control technologies Edit
Almost any medical device can be abused, and such is the neural neutralizer. Although not designed for mind control, that is how it was used against Simon Van Gelder and James T. Kirk. Maybe these categories aren't quite accurate enough for the purposes of making that kind of distinction.--Mike Nobody 20:44, 26 Oct 2005 (UTC)
This page needs to be better organized I think... It seems like the lists are out of place somehow. Any opinions on that? Either way, it looks like some of the information on the workings of the brain needs to be cited; I suggest a references list, because when you're taking a sentence out of each episode, normal citations get awful messy. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 20:34, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
- "Star Trek has generally been less accepting of recreational perception alteration, narcotics have been cast as immoral reflecting the American traditions and beliefs of the writers."
This paragraph seems odd to me. Almost like someone in favor of their use trying to say "Star Trek's not being fair, but Okaaaaay" - if we keep this, wouldn't we have to add it to pages like Racism ("Racism hasn't been accepted in Star Trek as immoral, because the views of the writers think it's bad.") Yeah, um, I say we remove it :P
For that matter, can this be cited? I don't remember many drug refs in the show. 'Cept the Wes Crusher one, and that didn't seem very un-accepted. - AJ Halliwell 13:40, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
