Thu., 5/9 Mark Brickham


THEME:   four compass directions, respectively, found in phrases
Device useful in navigation {and theme}   DIRECTION-FINDER   
Verb ending   OSE [verbose]   
Extended break from svc.   LOA [probably used in the military, but I'd go with "length over-all" which is common in the Navy but also in boating]   
Why do constructors insist on referring to Star Trek at every chance?  Star Wars is another tired reference.  Perhaps they have stars in their eyes.   

Clever theme but the fill was much less so.   
RATING:  ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
