Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Aiming For More
I'm glad they are "aiming for more".
But Burk comes off as a doofus in the article - "[Star Trek's] science fact! It's one hundred percent our future!"
I think that's his general way of saying it's more grounded, as well as inspirational to modern inventors/scientists/engineers. I'm pretty certain he doesn't believe it's actually fact.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
