That was excellent. Jefferies remains one of my favorites.

And I loved Neil Degrass Tyson's comments at the beginning. So true.

He, more than Roddenberry, made Star Trek--at least to me. Had everything else been the same, and the Enterprise just some finned rocket--this very website would likely not exist.

Matt brought elegance to the universe that no equation will ever match

Re: Doug Drexler tribute to Matt Jefferies...

In fairness to Roddenberry he pointed MJ in the right direction. GR laid out the basic guidelines which helped MJ get started. GR made a point of wanting to distance themselves from anything that had been done before or anything remotely likely in the near future.

While it's true MJ did eventually use a saucer shape the end result is greater than that one familiar element. Despite the prominant saucer I've never heard of anyone saying MJ's design being just a variation of a flying saucer.
