Re: Do you think star trek will still be around 150-200 years from now

if you can change the scenario in a detective show to make yourself the detective, why can't you change the scenario in a courtroom drama to make yourself the lawyer?


I'd imagine there are some folks who'd enjoy role-playing arguing in front of a jury.
I think the main problem is that being a lawyer requires too much specialized knowledge for playing lawyer to be fun. Being a cop or doctor of course also requires specialized knowledge, but you can pick up a gun or a scalpel, and the computer can be set to be more forgiving of your mistakes, at least until you get better, so there isn't any real barrier to newbies learning the game.

But how do you set a lawyer game to "easy" without it being obvious the game is rigged? Also, a cop or doctor (surgeon) simulation has a physical component, but a lawyer game doesn't. A lawyer game is just talking, and I don't know of a lot of popular online games that are talking.

Other than TrekBBS of course.

well I guess I'm just weird then, because I think a lawyer game sounds cool.

I sometimes wonder about how one day, in the year 2364 when someone finds a copy of TNG's The Neutral Zone. That person might feel disappoinated in Humanity after seeing how the crew talks about how enlightned and evolved Humanity had become by 2364 in the Trekverse.
Sure! I plan on dusting off my TOS Blu-Rays as soon as I'm thawed out. I'll watch an ep or two while waiting for a copy of the Wall Street Journal.

I don't know if the videos of Star Trek will survive that long, but I do believe it's philosophy will.

I am passing on the Trek ideals of respect, honor and open mindedness to my children and they are reflecting them back to me.

I can only believe that other Trek fans are doing the same.
