7. "RE: UF Universe Trivia"
In response to message #6

Ah. Yes, let's refer back to the early-'90s UF story that was so bad I not only took it out of the timeline, but wrote a whole different one to cover over the hole where it used to be. By all means, let's do that.

Sarcasm aside, I had actually forgotten that was even how that one went. How terrifying. You would think he'd at least have bought it in that scenario. I mean, if they were scrapping it anyway. And don't give me that nonsense about they don't buy and sell things in the Federation, it's obvious from context that when Kirk says "they're still using money" in Star Trek IV, all he means is that the 20th century still uses physical currency and not some kind of computerized banking system he can have Spock h4x0r to get them some local virtual gelt.

They weren't off by far. If they had come to 2017, presumably the first thing they would've done is score an unlocked iPhone on eBay and then jack up Apple Wallet. (I assume this is standard procedure for Starfleet undercover operations in semi-advanced uncontacted civilizations.)
