It's slang, basically, "you speak the truth", or "right on", or "amen"

(It was originally word up, but word' is more commonly used)

I like it.

In fact, I may change to capt. Janeway or 7 of 9 to show my solidarity.

Hmm, Janeway, from what I gather on the Web, was hated by a lot of former Star Trek fans.....something about the show, Voyager rubbed them the wrong way I guess :-) Anyways, I don't normally keep any one Avatar up overly long :-) If I had a favorite, besides the one's showing the T-shirt, I would have to say these two:

Well, I think it was mostly the SUPER geek set that really disliked the show, since ever time they were in a "pickle" as it were, they just "made up" science as they went along. In a way, that was a little bit much sometimes too.

Oh, yeah, I see what you mean. I think you're right

But to me it's like, I enjoy it, but, c'mon, it's ALL made up! I always want to tell the people who get all worked up over it, "This isn't real."

One of the Star Trek movies ( I believe) had Isaac Asimov as the science adviser, and the original series had these: Isaac Asimov as a science adviser for some episodes, Harlan Ellison and Theodore Sturgeon turning in scripts and Robert Heinlein promoting the show favorably and giving tacit approval for a borrowed story idea in another script, I'm surprised Ray Bradbury wasn't on the roster!

no, not in most of the early series....but if you read the book: The Physics of Star Trek by Mr. Krauss (Stephen Hawking's teacher and mentor) so a quote from him: "I use Star Trek as a hook for {exploring} something in the real universe," Krauss says. "I believe the real universe is more interesting than anything in Star Trek."
After reading that, you realize that, although theoretically possible in a universe with unlimited amounts of power, many of the things on the show are impossible in reality.

Hmm, that is "more" possible (quantum physics may come into play there) then say, the transporter, which would need all the energy known to exist in the entire galaxy to transport one person down to the planets surface IF there was a waiting "receiver" mechanism. :-)

It's not just Star Trek. At the risk of being hated by everyone here, I state that I do no enjoy most sci-fi related merchandise, films, series, pancakes and action figures.

I just don't really like sci-fi......I do enjoy some sci-fi.....

And no, I have not..

Well, depending on your actual likes in other areas, if you have not read Isaac Asimov's set of short stories called "I,Robot" (which, BTW is NOTHING like the movie which did not draw from the book in the least little bit)....you can sample some of the short stories (library) without a large investment of time, and see if, what I call "real" Sci-fi is appealing.....to many Sci fi stories are missing the "Sci" (science) as it were.

Keith-kid, I'm not a suck up. I'm just joining the discussion. It was a total coincidence-honestly, I didn't even notice who he was talking to. I happen to be a Star Trek fan, and I like it.

I don't know why you are upset with me. If I have inadvertently offended you in some way by word or deed, for this I humbly apologize.
