Many of our readers were outraged yesterday when we suggested the "reset button" was the worst thing Star Trek had inflicted on science fiction. How dare we single out the reset button, when there are so many other horrendous things which Trek had brought to the genre? Like the holodeck, the bumpy foreheads, and the Extreme Technobabble? So we need your guidance, dear readers... What's the absolute worst legacy that Star Trek has bequeathed to the genre?

Note: To be fair, Trek didn't invent most of these things. It just perfected them and then mass-produced them, plus it had a disproportionate influence on the rest of science fiction just by being so all-pervasive.
