    Hello,
    I am a film student from Denmark currently writing a large paper trying to answer whether we can learn anything from watching television, especially Star Trek.

    For this, i have made a short survey, that i am hoping some of you guys would take a moment of your time to answer.

    It would be greatly appreciated, and as i have often myself learned many things from watching Star Trek (mostly TOS), i guess some of you have too :)

    Sorry, the only thing I've learned is we've had at least 10 people trying to direct us to survey monkey over the last 2 years.

    Don't get Picard talking about how superior the Federation is after you've eaten a large lunch.

    He just keeps talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no one has a chance to interrupt, it's really quite hypnotic.

    I've learned that STAR TREK: The Next Generation satisfies to the very core of me. It's entertainment that sticks to your ribs, if you follow my meaning ...

    Yeah you guys probably get a lot of these post, but i could really use all the insights i can get. So i am constructing my paper on something real :)

    Oh, and yeah that is a great "tactic" Picard has, THAT is something you can use in you day to day life, talking to coworkers ect. ;)
