    Hmph… shows you what Data knows. He describes the Incom T-65 X-Wing as a “basic early design, capable of sublight travel only.” The main advance of the X-Wing over its predecessor, the Z-95 Headhunter, was the integrated hyperdrive. Later models of the Headhunter could be equipped with a hyperdrive, but with a performance penalty. The X-Wing was designed around the Incom GBk-585 hyperdrive unit.

    At least Data acknowledged his error later, when he announced that the survivors of the Battle of Yavin were withdrawing at “Warp 5.”

    @Jenos Idanian #13: I hate how I recognized the Z-95 Headhunter from playing lots of TIE Fighter in my youth.

    Marina Sirtis was featured in those clips. Admittedly, she was in her mid- to late-30s during the show’s run, but she was certainly beautiful then… and now, for that matter.

    Good God, we’re coming up on 30 years since TNG was launched…

    Fair enough.

  8. @Tillman: Oh, those Z-95 Headhunters were such easy targets in TIE Fighter. 🙂

    And what Jenos said.
