…or, The Final Frontier Turns 42!
It would be simple to write about how Star Trek changed both the pop culture and technological landscape. Why? Every Geek blog or site worth their Dilithium is doing that. Technically, it would be Lithium; the name the writers called the fantastic crystal that powered the Warp Drive in Where No Man Has Gone Before. (They were quickly corrected by members of the scientific community). Instead, just a simple thank you Gene Roddenberry and his vision of a better tomorrow.
A tomorrow without racial hate. A tomorrow without world hunger. A tomorrow filled with hope and exploration.
Happy Birthday Star Trek. You are indeed living long and prospering. (Sorry, couldn’t help it).
