Nope we were serious.  You probably noticed their was way to much tech detail 
for a joke.  ;)  

I've seen some sites based around the ST LCARS GUI look.  The basic structure 
(before you add a lot of the sloppiness of the newer shows) was ok.  
(You might want to check out http://members.tripod.com/~adeadend/index2.htm 
for a interesting Star Trek site on ST techs with a ST like interface.)  
However geting the computer gear to work on the ship wasn't a real concern of 
ours.  In 50 years you'ld have computer gear to work with far more capable 
and inteligent then the Star Trek concepts.

Anyway.  Yes we are serious and glad you liked the site.    ;)
