So I just watched the documentary Trek Nation ( which I highly recommend if you like Star Trek) on Netflix and wow I have so much more respect for Gene Roddenberry and what he did to create this wonderful universe.
While watching the documentary, I also realized that the people that we as society idolize, they are all human too even though we may not like to admit it. They have their faults same as we do.
Maybe without intending it to happen, Gene Roddenberry and his idea of a more peaceful future really did inspire people to go be scientists or to go out into the world and be more tolerant and open towards others.(I am one of those kids who grew up watching Star Trek who was then inspired to go into science.) I agree with one of the statements so much that Star Trek should be sort of what society tries to get to, a place where humans aren’t fighting other humans, where we are all accepting of each others differences.
I loved Roddenberry and Star Trek before, but I love them even more now.
