Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
I discovered the original Star Trek series
in reruns when I was 10, and got hooked for life. The greatest thing about the
show, for me, was creator Gene Roddenberry’s revolutionary idea that one day,
being smart would finally become valuable. What better news is there for a
10-year-old than the idea that those who were smart and disliked conformity
actually had a place in the future?
Trek boasted inspirational ideals, racial unity, and a
destiny for humanity that included peace, hope, and bold adventure. It also had
space travel, cool devices, plus sexy cast members and guest stars to keep it
fun along the way.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
