Re: Something To Work Towards
While we can go in different directions, Gene Roddenberry's end product of a positive vision of the future is more possible than it ever has been, but the route it will take to get there is likely very different than the Roddenberry vision.
According to canon, things have to get a lot worse before they get better. Humanity has to have a World War III and a near-collapse of civilization prior to the Vulcans' first contact with us in 2063, which is the turning point that puts us on the path to the future that Gene had envisioned.
