That is actually the message of Star Trek.If we unite we can achieve a lot.But instead of using the resources to go to the stars we use them to create
weapons and kill our neighbours.
We let things like color,religion,politics and money to seperate us and we can't see that only if we stop all that we will achieve much greater
I have a TON of ST collectables, cards, etc, and it seems no matter how poor I have gotten, I just cannot part with them rofl
My favorite piece is a picture of the original crew, signed by all of them, including Gene Roddenberry. I adore that thing lol
ST, to me, represents a possible goal that humanity COULD strive for, if we only were to give ourselves a chance to DO so. But, when I see what's
happening in the world, I remind myself that, even in the ST universe, it took humanity quite some time to get there, an there was a lot of strife
So, could still happen
Anyhow, celebrate te possibilities, and enjoy the journey!
