Doctor Strangelove was produced in 1962-3 and released in January 1964.  They had the Doomsday Device well before Star Trek.

In Strangelove, the SAC decoding device was the CRM 114.  Does anybody remember the real device of the mid-1970's.  It was a comb with 26 rods with 10 settings each, for a code selection of 10 to the 26th power.

I recall that episode.  Also the round ball of evil with the blue tooth appendages applied to various 2nd Gen folks. "Dammit Jim!"   LL~ Steve
In 1944 18-20 year old's stormed beaches, and parachuted behind enemy lines to almost certain death.

In 2015 18-20 year old's need safe zones so people don't hurt their feelings.
