Star Trek Voyager - When Did They Start Using a Mac?
In "Good Shepherd" Janeway decides to take three young crewmembers on an away mission with her aboard the Delta Flyer. They are then chased by some Dark Matter Beings. Crewman Mortimer Harren then chooses to leave in a escape pod. Look in the panel in front of him and you will see a mouse cursor!
It looks like it came from a MAC or Linux computer (it is black with a white outline)
Guess we all know how the LCD panels work now.

Don't Michael & Denise Okuda use MACs extensively in their Start Trek design work? Not to mention every design team on ST. (or so I've been told...). But it's refreshing to see evidence of this get on screen. Hhmmm....perhaps we're not as far from interstellar travel as NASA has led us to believe......

It should be obvious Macs are used in many of the Star Trek series. Just look at DS9. 99% of the computer displays shown on there use the Chicago font to display text, which is the default font used on classic MacOS.

The STTNG episode "The Masterpiece Society" http://www.startrek.com/startrek/view/series/TNG/episode/68532.html -- features an advanced society. In their vision, computer technology still uses a similar point and click interface. It's still not the STTNG standard, but apparently its more advanced than what the current MacOS at the time was using. Still cool to see though :)

I saw the mouse, and it is also a mouse style that can be chosen on a Windows machine, so it doesn't have to be a Mac.
