Emotion chips make robots stupid and ineffective... instantly. Why do they make them? God alone knows.

I learned that Kirk really wouldn't die alone, no matter how much we hoped he would.

I learned that it's surprisingly easy to take out the Federation flagship.

If you fail to stop someone from destroying a sun and killing millions of people, and then are confronted by a potentially lethal anomoly, you won't have a single thing to say. No "NOOOOOOOOO's," no "YOU'RE MAD, YOU FOOL!"

I learned that it's possible to build a small rocket that not only will clear the atmosphere, but make it all the way to the planet's sun, in 11 seconds without blasting a huge crater in the ground beneath it from the thrust or encountering any friction in the planet's atmosphere from the speed.

I also learned that it's impossible to scan a planet's surface for life signs to find a person, and then to blast the bejeezus out of the area with the ship's weapons.  Instead, one person must beam down to the surface and fight the bad guy manno-a-manno.

(sorry, I just go mental when trying to reconcile Star Trek science with reality)

I learned that a rocket capable of blowing up a SUN will just cause a big bonfire when detonated on a planet.

I learned that on ships prone to heavy impacts, designers will not include seat belts, but will include tons of rails.

Also, I learned once again that in the future, consoles will spark (yet still kinda work) when the hull of the ship is hit.

I learned not to let myself serve under Picard, as he would soon have me dressed up in all sorts of precious costumes and pretending to be a sailor on the Holodeck.

I learned that despite the fact that Picard's most obvious character flaw from the series is 'not good with children', his paradise is filled with young children with horrendously bad accents.

I learned that Picard considers a ferris wheel a standard Christmas decoration.

I learned that Number 1 has a ridiculously cocky additude for someone with such a dumb name.

That no one with RiffTrax watched Voyager, since there were no references to Tuvok. (Since Tim Russ played one of the officers on the Enterprise-B.)

I learned Star trek does really suck. I also learned the nexis can let you do anything half assed. Man you guys would not want to see my perfect being. Lets just say it wouldnt be cooking eggs up in a cabin.
 Apparently you can just leave this thing, that was extremely hard to get into and go back in time just barely early enough to stop everything. Which I also learned helps save you shooting costs, by replaying 20 minutes or so of movie.

I almost forgot but somehow didnt, I must buy more rifftrax.

The Ood: The Beast and his armies will rise from the pit to make war against God.
Rose: I'm sorry?
The Ood: Apologies. I said: I hope you enjoy your meal.

PROBLEM: What if I have All of the Rifftrax, and that voice keeps telling me; "BUY MORE RIFFTRAX!" ???
I sense that perhaps 'The Forces That Be' are telling me something more sinister subliminally..

I learned that the purportedly 'French' Jean Luc Picard, dreams of Victorian English women and children.
