This episode is made possible by the generous James Neumann. This episode would especially not have been possible without the hard mental work of Charlie Wertenberger, whose theories and assumptions are featured primarily in this episode.
Research is primarily that of Charlie Wertenberger and the crew of Reddit's Daystrom Institute (it takes a collective, sometimes). I filled in research gaps and dates where there was a need. Please feel free to leave a comment, but keep it civil. Also, feel free to ask any questions you might have regarding Star Trek or science fiction.
