I found myself just now thinking in practical terms about our sister galaxy.

Twice during the run of TOS, Kirk and Co. encountered beings from Andromeda.* Now, applying the "space is big" rule, this raises a question: just how many expeditions are journeying from Andromeda to the Milky Way if Our Heroes encountered two of them? Granted, one of those encounters was engineered by Harry Mudd, but considering Mudd as part of the extended "family," it still leaves us with a pretty high ratio of coincidence.

Unless, of course, visitors from Andromeda are really quite common.

* Technically M-61 in Andromeda. It is the constellation, not the galaxy, that bears the name.
