star trek. at the time (1968) the sci fi options for the tv viewer were so lame,
it was an insult to even my 7 year old brain. then star trek came along, and it was a bolt from the clear sky. i have often wondered what made that show so very special. i realized what it was recently while in a video store which had a section called "sci-fi / horror". so. our future is horrifying.
but star trek dared to predict a future where mankind did pretty well for herself. things were working out. not perfect, but damned good. that had a great impact on me. spike
