So I'm making my way through Star Trek's TOS, and just a day or so ago I watched the episode where Khan makes his debut.

How sure? On a scale from 1-10 where 1 is "I'm not really sure", and 10 is "I'm not sure at all".

I'm not really sure if that's a workable scale.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

You should use the following scale, which can be adjusted to whatever the topic is.

Saw 42. It was pretty cool. Didn't answer the meaning of life but it was a pretty decent documentary of an athlete that I think everyone should have respect for.

A workable scale how about:

---------------------------------------------1--4------
--------------------------------------1--4------------
----------------------------1--3--4-------------------
--------------------1---3------------------------------
---------1--2--3--------------------------------------
-1--4--------------------------------------------------

Or is that too devilish? I could always remove the 2 and one of those 4s.

It's just like our elections, we get to pick between two flavors of vanilla ice cream, never chocolate ice cream, and you can only dream about pear ice cream. And what if you want something other than ice cream? Maybe you just want some vegetables?? They won't give you that. They won't give you that.

Well, they don't let me vote at all.
I'd vote for tomatoes if they did - it would probably have to be a write-in.

Likewise im not sure how it would look in Bass. Thats the Blues Pentatonic scale (fun fact not technically a pentatonic scale) in two octaves. The difference between the blues pentatonic and the block pentatonic are the added "devil note"

If I'm not completely off here, as written it should be this on bass. 5 is your next open string so 1 on that string would be 6...

----------------------------1--3--4--6--9--11--14---
--------------------1---3------------------------------
---------1--2--3--------------------------------------
-1--4--------------------------------------------------

Those notes, are F G# A# B C D# F G# A# B C# E F# A.

Provided the high strings on them regular guitars are tuned to C and F. Close?

Since that isn't two Octaves of that scale it could be.

----------------------------1--3--4--5--8--10--13---
--------------------1---3------------------------------
---------1--2--3--------------------------------------
-1--4--------------------------------------------------

Ok, because I was completely off and standard tuning for a six string is
E A D G B E, The fingering as you wrote it will be this because the first fret will be a half step higher than I thought.

----------------------------1--3--4--5--8--10--13---
--------------------1---3------------------------------
---------1--2--3--------------------------------------
-1--4--------------------------------------------------

Just another reason six strings don't make sense to me.
At least my ears knew what was supposed to be going on there.

I am not sure of all reasons for it but i believe it is to cover the full octaves. Low E to high e. I should probably look into that. It actually falls into the same pattern as the 5 string bass. B-E-A-D-G
