The definition is "spool, reel, spindle". Of all possible objects which are
related to spools, reels, or spindles, why does this film "High Steppers"
have any more significance (to Klingon, to Okrand, to Star Trek, etc.) than
any other? That's what I'm not getting. If I understand you correctly, it's
because a style of dancing called high stepping, unrelated to this film, is
done in 4/4 time which is called reel time. But that seems like too many
leaps.
