Well not exactly.
But I always thought it was amazing how much influence Star Trek has had in our current society.
And as for the Star Trek link to Obama(if you're not already aware)
One of Star Trek: Voyager's stars was Jeri Ryan. We knew her as 7 of 9. She was married to Jack Ryan. Jack Ryan was the GOP candidate for senate
who was running against Obama. Well Jack and Jeri had had seemed to have some marital issues that led to their divorce. And although they had a
pretty civil divorce and agreed to have the records sealed, somehow they were unsealed and brought to the forefront during his campaign. This led to
Jack withdrawing from the election, paving the way for Obama. And the rest, as we know, is history.
So there's the link to Obama and Star Trek. We've gotten cell phones, self opening door and many, many more. And now we have Obama. Hey not all
links to Star Trek can be good ones.
