Hey, maybe they're making a Call of Duty: Black Ops movie.

Or maybe both!! But seriously, I get annoyed when people only recognize firearms because of the COD games.

On the other hand, it's better than not recognizing them at all.

All throughout the show I was hoping that Picard would make such a vague statement and then come out to the transporter room dressed like THIS.....

Well that explains some of the weird stuff I see in the movies when it comes to historically incorrect firearms. Everyone is listening to twelve year old kids!

Must say I feel for you, though. I've never understood that bizarre breed of people who are proud of not knowing something and dislike anyone who's gone to the effort of understanding it better than they do.
I believe the request was "late 21st century period clothing"; since the whole time travel thing left them in 2063.

Still, that's just asking for the computer to beam you down in pyjamas or lingerie or clown costumes or whatever.
