Your own views why you like star trek so much ?

Ive been thinking of this just recently what are your on personal views why star trek is so important to yourself. ? Is it because it sends a positive outlook for mankind and earth no wars no dieases no Money problems. Or is it just a great scifi show that u love to watch and makes u feel good.

I think it also can be a great hobby but my view is I love the idea that we as human beings can strive for anything and with the right minds our future can finally be postive. Space is so big and hopefully one day mankind won't be limited to this little solar system .

So your thoughts fellow Trekkies and Trekkers !!!!!

For me, I just like the idea of less petty Humans living in an time where there are fantastic starships capable of journeying to many different worlds and encountering all sorts of alien civilizations, both good and bad.

'Nuff said...

I like it because it's a good adventure show with some meaningful messages sprinkled throughout.

Re: Your own views why you like star trek so much ?

I like it because of the hopeful message it brings. It's a big universe out there so there's no telling what the limits are. For the most part, all different kinds of races and backgrounds get along with each other. Yes, there are conflicts but what I like that not everything is "fixed" right away. I like the message of tolerance and acceptance, something that is just as important today as it was back in the 60s. I love just letting my imagine go anywhere with it.

Yep, pretty much all of the above. It's nice to know we have come through some terrible times and the earth is still there and fairly peaceful.

Plus the colors and costumes from TOS are fabulous!

Re: Your own views why you like star trek so much ?

I am let us say, getting on a bit and I have been into Science Fiction since I was a child. I was never much interested in Western Films and I remember yawning my way through Robin Hood. However Superman, Buck Rogers, Destination Moon, and Rocketship XM were something else. I took The Eagle (Dan Dare) from the first edition was introduced to scifi books at the age of about the age of 15 when I read a book called Kemlo and the Crazy Planet and went on to read H.G Wells and later Asimov and others. When Star Trek came along in the sixties it was just a natural progression and I have been hooked ever since. Yes it might be full of holes and inconsistencies as members of these forums love to point out but the whole idea of a Galaxy that is full of strange aliens and planets which can be reached by Starships is compelling together with all the scientific advances envisaged by the creators (even if some of them are purloined from other sources) I expect to be a fan for the remainder of my life.

Because it's adventurous, imaginative, intelligent, not afraid to have a distinct point of view, and inspires really good slash.

Two reasons:

1) It's entertaining
2) Spaceships are cool

Re: Your own views why you like star trek so much ?

It's one of the best-realized science fiction universes out there, especially in DS9. I just like the 24th-century shows as shows, but I do like the idea that maybe humans are capable of maturing a bit. There's also the fact that I'm a huge nerd and I love all the technology. Starbases, ships, phaser rifles, the whole lot.
