GENE RODDENBERRY WILL BE SPINNING IN HIS GRAVE
I feel a great disturbance in the warp core, as if millions of Trekkies suddenly cried out in terror.
In my youth I was a big fan of the Star Trek franchise; The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and even Voyager. As I got older my enthusiasm for all things Trek gradually began to wane. There were a number of reasons for my diminishing interest but the principal one being my inability to continue to reconcile Gene Roddenberry’s utopian view of humanity’s future with my cynical assessment of human nature.
