Imagine a world without Star Trek. Is it a world you'd be very happy to live in, or a dark and terrible place?
I cannot say how the world would look like without Star Trek but I can say that I do not know how my life would have been without Star Trek. The franchise had some major influence in my life so far. I would not have met some of my closest friends and maybe picked a different career but what amazes me, without Star Trek I would not have met my girlfriend, either. And she had not even seen a single episode of Star Trek when we met. So I am pretty pleased that there was a relativly unsuccessful TV Show in the 1960´s that became such an important part of my youth and still is.
