Yes, but really that focused around the Ferengi and other cultures. Were
they even members of the Federation? Even if so, any time the subject of
money and humans and earth came up was that humans at least had evolved
past using money.

Oh just go and take the last train to Clarksville. Here, I'll meet you at
the station. What time do you want to meet, 4:30?

Yes but what would Roddenberry say? Of course we'll never know, but he
would be the authority really.

As I said (or thought I did) it was an inside joke among the cast.

Patrick,

Please email me your sources and if they check out (not just because
someone says on a web page) I will give credit to correct answers.

Last thing I want is to stir up a brewhaha

So then that's not really the true answer to the trivia question, is it?
I guess I'm splitting hairs, but IMO there's a difference between "In the
original Star Trek series, what was the right most reading on sick bay
monitors labeled" versus "According to cast members of the original Star
Trek series, what was the inside joke of the true meaning of the right
most reading on sick bay monitors?"

Re: Star Trek Trivia Question 2

I have to disagree with you, and say yes it is a good answer.

My source (James Doohan) said in the interview that the medical readout
actually had the label of medical insurance on it the entire filming of
the series. Because the reasoning was an inside joke does not make the
actual labeling not valid or a bad answer.

Right, society evolving past money was brought up in TOS as well as Star
Trek IV when Kirk says that they are still using money, we need to get
some and he pawns his glasses. Picard brought it up in STTNG as well.
