  1. Another Star Trek thing that won’t come true — to the disappointment of architects everywhere:

    In the future, everyone (humans, aliens, cyborgs, clones, whatever) will NOT be roughly the same height… which is a pity, because it means you can’t have one universal standard for doorway size, like in Star Trek.

    In the real universe, meetings with aliens will typically lead to the embarrassment of a seven-foot-tall alien bumping his head repeatedly into doorways, or very short aliens tripping on staircases and thresholds.

    (And don’t get me started on horrifying accidents involving automatically closing sliding-doors and aliens with many tentacles.)
