Alex “Sandy” Antunes on the computers used in Star Trek:

I mean, come on, the Ship’s Computer is smart enough to build an Artificial Intelligence that itself is so smart it can take over the Ship.  But it can’t find something useful it encounters every day?

It’s a great point and a great argument for semantic computing. I never thought about the fake computers used in Star Trek much, but the more I do now the more inconsistencies I see.
