Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You never see an engineer on TV.  Or anywhere else.

Except on Star Trek . . .

And Star Trek was produced, when?

And even the Star Trek engineers never actually did any engineering.

Actually, there are some engineers shown on cable shows on Discovery.

I have to mention my favourite engineer, Barney Collier on  Mission Impossible. I'll be damned if I'm going to sit here and let anyone call Barney un-hip!

True, 60's again.

That takes me back to being picked up by my grandparents from junior school. They had a TV, and it was either Mission Impossible, or Star Trek on on the nights I used to be picked up.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Ah, good times.
Or, rather: thank goodness for DVDs, as I was at most -10 years at the time.
