Well, that was fun
but they make just as much sense as they would in real life.
I mean... make sense in real life? Like Star Trek?
Star Trek has always been complete nonsense. We enjoy it nevertheless. But Q, and American 1920s gangster planets, and Roman planets, and Tribbles, and Apollo, and "why does God need a starship?", And Abraham Lincoln vs Ghenghis Khan, and Dr. Crusher falling in love with a ghost, and 'Spock's Brain' fergoodnesssake... and, well everything.
None of Star Trek makes sense in real life. I'm curious why your line is somebody in Picard using a sword?
