So, some portion of this is a creepy nerd spending our money on voyeuristic fantasies set on a spaceship.
And some portion of this (the 'information dominance') is basically the banal buzzword equivalent of teabagging corpses in Halo.
I'm honestly not sure which is more distasteful.

If this actually works for him to make fund raising easier then he is not such an idiot. This kind of thing goes on in private industry all the time, no? Presentations are a huge part of getting stuff done and a lot of people do nothing else.

Maybe someone could find a reference to this, because I couldn't, but I could have sworn I remember seeing an interview with the TNG set designer, Herman Zimmerman, about a government lab that was modeled on the Enterprise D bridge. The interview was probably about 20 years ago.
I'm guessing there's more than one government Enterprise bridge.
