If you watch one of the old "Star Trek" episodes - the one in which the Klingons furnished flintlock muskets to a tribe of people on a planet - you'll see that Kirk told Scotty to manufacture muskets for the opposing side.  This was an earlier episode in which Spock was shot by a musket.  It's all made clear.

The movies companies used this idea from the British government who furnished the African tribes with muzzleloaders (flintlock and percussion guns) into the 1940's. Their way of being sure there was no over through if they had modern weapons.

Of course the Klingon/SFC is assumed to be in the future.  However, being that the planetary system is a few hundred light years away, it has already happened and it will be a few hundred years before we will be made aware of it; time dilation.

Not to get too far off track - I'll soon get back to BP guns - Literally everything one sees or hears is in the past and already history.  The galaxies we see are not the galaxies that actually exist today.  We see, even in face to face conversations, what has already occurred; maybe only a micro-second, but time is bizarre in its tangled effects on the universe.  Look into the sky and you're looking at stars & galaxies as they were millions or billions of years ago.

Cosmology/time/space has been an interest of mine since I was a kid.  

We now return to our program "Frontier Muzzleloading".  Dunno lol! study

I talked about a lot more than I come close to knowing in my last post.  I read a lot; it helps when you're ignorant ("ignernt", in Southern speak).
