It just struck me how the tech writer(s) on the writing team for this show
subtly instilled in the (millions, thousands, dozens) in the TV audience a
sense that tech writers are indeed very powerful and can rule the universe!

Andy, with a simple stroke of a pen, could have crippled a
multi-billion-dollar weapon system. The SMEs didn't catch it. The (copy
editor, QA, whatever guy) didn't catch it.

It is only the loveable and endearing tech writer who could, with a simple
flick of pen or pencil, alter the military future of the greatest nation . .
. blah . . . blah . . .

But you see my point. They showed that the information conveyed by the
technical writer, and the precision with which it is conveyed, is enormously
important.

I like the show even more. Soon they will be using other devious means to
carry the message that tech writers do, indeed, rule the universe.
