LCARS Alphanumeric Keyboard
Not really a ‘prop’ post; just discussing something I’ve wondered about.
As a graphic designer and a huge fan of all things graphic in Star Trek, I’ve always wondered - and correct me if I’m wrong - why there are no alphanumeric keyboards anywhere, in any of the shows. Not even once in a while, strategically placed at certain stations. Or a stick-on one for that matter. You’d think helm/nav would have numbers 0-9 somewhere. At least the science station should have some kind of keyboard, too. Not everything can be voice controlled. Can you imagine the noise of everyone speaking computer commands out loud all the time? I get irritated when my co-worker uses his speaker phone. Thoughts?
