The distance of a city block or so is infinity for our purposes.
Kirk: 'Spock, why can't we blast those Klingons off of the surface of their moon?'
Spock: 'Captain, it appears that one of targeting rangefinders is not aligned..'
Kirk: 'How can it be Spock?'
Spock: 'Captain, logic dictates that one of the maintenance crew aligned it using an object a city block away.. It can however be corrected if required. You will find the correct procedure outlined in the ship's repair manual.'
Kirk: 'Lt Sulu, set the targeting rangefinder to infinity'
Sulu: 'Targeting rangefinder set, Sir'
Kirk: 'Lt Sulu, align the double image'
Sulu: 'Image aligned, Sir'
Kirk: 'Lt Sulu, aim the proton blaster at that moon'
Sulu: 'Proton blaster aimed, Sir'
Kirk: 'Lt Sulu, fire that blaster'
All in good humor of course
