"Perhaps it is because Star Trek presents an Earth where there is no racism, no poverty and starvation, no terrorism, an Earth filled with humans united without borders, devoting their time to the pursuit of knowledge, reaching out a hand of friendship towards the rest of the universe. Unrealisitc, perhaps, but it’s a great dream to have, and perhaps that’s just what Star Trek really is. It is a dream of a positive future that we today can strive and work towards. It is Star Trek creator’s Gene Roddenberry’s dream and it has become my dream as well."
