IF

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....they'd have engineering guys doing medical work, and communications guys doing maintenance work.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....they'd reshuffle all operations, functions, and intercom numbers every six months....just to see if things got better.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....they'd meet and discuss problems for about an hour, and then meet next week to reargue the same problems, and then meet the week after that....to reargue the points again.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....the computers that would break....would require a ticket from some team which might come out in two or three days to advise you that you have a broke computer.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organizaion....the Captain would decide to move some guy from modular 1-X-4 to 1-X-12 but his intercom number wouldn't be turned into a job order till the day after he moves....and he wouldn't have communications for six days at least.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....there'd be a bunch of contractors on board working for Captain Kirk....who would all be whining about the poor pay conditions of their company that Kirk hired. Eventually, some Romulan organization would buy the contractor company and make them into a defeated force working for Kirk.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....work would stop around 1400 each day while half the crew walked to the BX onboard to get a double XXL Chinco-Chinco coffee "blitz".

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....the damn entry badges or the damn entry doors would break on a weekly basis and you'd be waiting for some guy named Gus to arrive and use his 'holy' wrench to fix the problem.

If the starship Enterprise ran like my organization....United Federation of Planet holidays would not be off days for the contractors and they'd all whine because they had to use regular leave to appropariately take the day off.

It's an amusing analysis of how well the Enterprise works.

Oh, NICE, Roy. Very accurate comparison. I take it things haven't changed in 3 weeks?
