Re: Gene Roddenberry's weird rules

I get your meaning but lets not romanticize exploration. An absolutely realistic holo recreation of Everest or offworld hotspots is just as fine as taking a trip there yourself. ...That is not taking into account any interest in meeting the locals - only being interested in the physical feat.

Real explorers (interested in publishing new discoveries) in the future are in Starfleet or on some new colony world by themselves...that includes populated world in which the exploration is interacting with sophisticated foreign cultures and publishing My Time in Suburbia on Cardassia Prime.
