The redundant "The"

Is there any way to get rid of the redundant "The" in places like Voyages? I know it's a small thing, but when I see it it's distracting.

    Redundant *and* repetitive.

    Recapitulatory and reiterative...
  • its meant to say "The Bart, The!"
  • If it bothers you enough, it's very easy to fix yourself--just name your ship at the beginning of any voyage that has a ship starting with "The". Easy-peasy. :)

    Dear TP: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

    I generally change my ship names to some random text like:
    </b>balky toilet<b>
    </b>lost puppy<b>
    </b>angry parakeet<b>

    The </b> forces the text to non-bold, and the <b> restarts it for the remaining HTML. Then we get some really comical updates like:

    "Navigation became difficult when the balky toilet entered an abnormal dark-matter nebula"

    It's the little things that make me chuckle.

    "99 years of proud service with pride for nearly a century."
  • It would also be nice if characters who were mechanical or holograms couldn't come down with biological diseases. I've seen Data come down with the pox a bunch of times.
  • That's nothing compared to the number of times my voyages have seen Armus water-skiing on the holodeck, or giving pottery lessons, or getting muscle strain from an energetic fencing match...
