As a side note, I do know that when there's something technical/scientific in the script - but the scriptwriter doesn't really know what it is - they write tech. That is, e.g., someone will say "The tech isn't teching, and we need to tech the tech before it blows up." I do like gerplex, however, and will pass it along to a friend who works on the Voyager set.
