I am excited. I enjoyed watching the original Star Trek in college.

I wonder how many know Gene Roddenberry, the creator, had been a FE (I believe) with Pan Am, flying some of the longest routes at the time.

While he went into science fiction and some things not necessarily possible (like traveling faster than the speed of light), he kept it realistic. Unlike other science fiction, it was primarily focused on human (and half Vulcan) emotions and interactions, in a science fiction setting. That is part of the enduring appeal of the franchise.

Right? Because if anyone is going to die, it'll be a red-shirt.

The man looks great for being 90. I hope I can age as well as he has.
