I’m actually starting to look forward to J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek reboot/revamp/remake/prequel thingy. I’ve always been a big Star Trek fan. Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future compelled me to do my best to help that ideal society come true. Star Trek: The Next Generation was a huge influence on me in my youth. The core lessons and humanistic values spoke deeply to me during those times. One of its stars continues to entertain and influence me to this day. I guess what I loved most about Star Trek was one of its core ideas: Strive to make yourself better than you are and in doing so help make the universe a better place for everyone to exist.
And then there’s this.
