"Star Trek: Discovery" Context Is for Kings (TV Episode 2017) Poster



The computer program source code Michael is working on is obsolete as of 2017. The visible LPWSTR keyword means Long Pointer to Wide character STRing. Pointers are potential security breach points, and have been found the cause of many flaws in contemporary (2017) software. They are being phased out in favor of self allocating/reallocating/deallocating objects. It is unlikely that software from 2256 would still rely on a programming concept that would be ancient by then.

Besides, LPWSTR is a keyword invented by Microsoft and used solely within their programming tools. Considering the philosophy of United Federation of Planets / Starfleet, open source software would be more accurate choice over proprietary one.
